Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

BMW has made very few changes to the X1 for 2021: SiriusXM satellite radio is now standard, and LED fog lamps are no longer part of the optional Convenience or Premium packages. Also, BMW won't let customers order the sports seats as a standalone option anymore. You have to select the M Sport pack if you want them.

Pros
Peppy turbo four,
crisp handling,
practical interior.

Cons
Unsupportive standard front seats,
aging infotainment interface,
bland styling.

The 2021 BMW X1 is an appealing crossover with hatchback moves, but keep a lid on options for the better value.

Pros
Turbocharged punch
Nimble around-town handling
Good transmission
Comfy front seats
Reasonably large cargo area

Cons
Stodgy vs. expressive rivals
Rear-seat leg room
Infotainment’s clunky controller
Chintzy interior bits
Can get expensive

The 2021 BMW X1's #1 ranking is based on its score within the Luxury Subcompact SUVs category. Currently the BMW X1 has a score of 8.4 out of 10, which is based on our evaluation of 34 pieces of research and data elements using various sources.

Pros
Sporty handling
Potent engine
Intuitive infotainment system
Large cargo hold

Cons
Firm ride
Some low-rent cabin materials

The T-Roc may be among the most significant of many new Volkswagen models, even if it won’t be sold in the United States in the foreseeable future. It’s a new crossover that is roughly the same size as the Golf and is based on the same MQB architecture. For now, at least, the Golf will remain the mainstay of the brand’s lineup, but those within the company who are concerned with sales-growth rates are far more interested in the crossover-SUV segment nearly everywhere on the globe.

Pros
Golf-like driving dynamics,
decent packaging,
adventurous design (for VW).

Cons
Only average interior quality,
firm ride,
we likely won’t get it.

The T-Roc is a small family car that blends the high driving position and big boot of an SUV with the economical engines from a conventional small car. It is quite expensive, however…

Pros
More comfortable than alternatives
Well equipped as standard
Decent range of engines

Cons
Cheap-feeling interior plastics
Alternatives are cheaper
Back seats could be more spacious

By:

The Volkswagen T-Roc looks good, drives well and offers plenty of space, but it's pricey and some rivals have a nicer interior.

Pros
Easy to personalise
Good to drive
Stylish

Cons
Expensive
Interior quality issues
Rivals offer better value
