Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

BMW has given its smallest crossover a visual freshening for 2020, with larger front grilles, new front and rear bumpers, updated LED lighting elements, and fresh wheel designs. Last year's standard 6.5-inch infotainment display has been scrapped in favor of the previously optional 8.8-inch unit with navigation. BMW revised the eight-speed automatic transmission for 2020, but we haven't driven it yet so we can't confirm BMW's claim that it shifts faster and more smoothly than before.

Pros
Eager powertrain, fun-to-drive nature, big cargo capacity.

Cons
Bar-stool shaped standard seats, slow-reacting infotainment interface, anonymous exterior design.

The 2020 BMW X1 comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 8-speed shiftable automatic.Refreshed exterior with a larger grille that mimics those on other BMWs.8.8-inch touchscreen now standard.Some package content has been shuffled.

Pros
Strong and responsive turbo engine
Sharp handling makes it fun to drive
Plenty of rear passenger and cargo room
High-quality materials and fit and finish

Cons
Ride quality gets a little jarring on rough roads
Not particularly quiet on the highway

The GLC-Class is a wholly competent crossover that could only benefit from more excitement.

Pros
Quiet and refined,
gorgeous and spacious interior,
more practical than a C-Class.

Cons
Lacks driving verve,
limited cargo space,
most driver assists aren't standard.

Pros

Performance potential in AMG versions
Comfortable ride and interior
Good rear seat room
Good active safety features, standard and optional

Cons
Top spec versions are pricey
Refresh was very light
Compromised outward vision in coupes
Small rear doors in coupes

The 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class comes with rear wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 9-speed shiftable automatic.Now offers Mercedes' excellent MBUX infotainment system.More power for the GLC 300 and GLC 43.GLC 350e plug-in gets larger battery and more electric range.

Pros
Balance of comfort and performance makes it an appealing daily driver
Elegant design inside and out gives it a true luxury appearance
Plenty of room for adult-size passengers in back
Solid fuel economy from the standard four-cylinder engine

Cons
Pricier than some rivals
Some common standard driver aids are still optional
