Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Pleasant to drive and built to a price, the 2017 BMW X1 is a mainstream subcompact crossover that is pleasant to drive but lacks the brand's "ultimate driving machine" performance.
The 2017 BMW X1 sits apart from other BMWs. With its front-wheel-drive, Mini-sourced platform, is the brand's entry-level subcompact crossover and a more mainstream, less passionate vehicle than you would expect from BMW. It is offered as the front-drive sDrive28i and the all-wheel-drive xDrive28i, the former added for 2017.

Pros
Crossover utility
Gutsy turbo 4-cylinder
Good rear-seat space
Fairly thrifty fuel economy
Competitive price of entry

Cons
Prices climb quickly with options
Some cost-cutting in interior trim
Driver assists cost extra
Poor front seats

The BMW X1 offers shoppers in the compact luxury crossover category an intriguing blend of performance, comfort and utility. If you're looking for something that cleverly blurs the line between a low-slung sedan and a high-riding SUV, the X1 is worth a test drive.
The 2017 X1 is BMW's smallest and most affordable utility vehicle, yet it offers a surprising amount of passenger and cargo space. It delivers trademark BMW quality inside and out, and despite having less power than earlier versions, the X1 still accelerates and handles better than most in its class.

Pros
Strong performance from its turbocharged engine
One of the best-handling compact luxury crossovers you're going to find
More rear passenger and cargo room than most other competitors
High-level interior fit, finish and materials

Cons
Standard sport suspension can be jarring on rough roads
Steering feels less precise than some of BMW's sport sedans.

The 2017 BMW X1 ranks 1 out of 5 Luxury Subcompact SUVs. The 2017 BMW X1 finishes near the top of our luxury subcompact rankings because of its good performance, upscale and spacious interior, and outstanding cargo space for the class.

Pros
Quick acceleration
Athletic handling
Roomy back seat
Outstanding cargo capacity

Cons
No standard driver assistance features

The 2017 Acura RDX ranks 3 out of 14 Luxury Compact SUVs. The 2017 Acura RDX combines good value for the money with a comfortable and fully featured cabin, V6 power, and a smooth ride. This SUV has a long list of standard features and options, which are tied to packages and not trim levels. This means you don’t have to buy the high-end model to get the option you’re coveting most.

Pros
Peppy and capable V6 engine
Comfortable and quiet cabin
Smooth handling

Cons
Less sporty than competitors
Confusing infotainment system

By:

The 2017 Acura RDX is one of the smoothest, most responsive-driving compact crossover SUVs—even though it prioritizes practicality.
Acura may be the underdog today in luxury sedans, yet it's giving shoppers exactly what they want with the 2017 Acura RDX and the larger MDX.
That includes strong powertrains, quiet cabins, and impressive safety—as well as just the right amount of versatility and practicality to make it one of the best-balanced picks in the segment, for those who are balancing the usual mix of sometimes-conflicting priorities.

Pros
Smooth ride
Strong V-6 performance
Agile handling
Quiet interior

Cons
Back seat is a little cramped
Rear seats don't fold flat
Annoying audio and forward-collision beeps
Tinny speakers

If a small, luxury SUV is on your shopping list, you should consider the 2017 Acura RDX. This stylish Acura is one of our favorites thanks to its fuel-efficient, yet powerful V6, comfortable interior and long list of standard features. Read on to find out why the RDX could be a good fit for you.

Pros
Strong acceleration and fuel economy from standard V6 engine
Elevated rear seat provides generous legroom and a commanding view
More features than competitors at a similar or much lower price
Generous cargo capacity for the segment.

Cons
Technology interface can be distracting to use, especially the optional dual-screen system
High-tech safety features and adaptive cruise control don't work as well as some rival systems
Cabin lacks overtly luxurious look and feel.
