Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Need a big Mazda SUV, but don't want petrol? The brand now has the answer - it's called the CX-8. Paul Maric checks it out.

Pros
Excellent fuel efficiency
Stacks of standard features, especially in top-specification Asaki model
Plenty of room inside for a growing family

Cons
Diesel engine can run out of breath when overtaking
Quality of 360-degree camera is very poor
Three year warranty with no roadside assistance starting to fall behind the pack

By going transverse-engined the X1 has become technically less distinctive, but more useful in the real world.This is the second-generation BMW X1. The smallest BMW SUV. And this time around there’s been a big change. It’s based not on the natively rear-drive platform of the last one, but on the same front-drive/4WD setup as the 2 Series Active Tourer MPV, Mini Countryman and so-on.

Pros
Performance,
chassis and space,
much-improved style

Cons
Not cheap,
interior a bit old-feeling,
slightly brittle ride

"The BMW X1 is an economical, practical and good-to-drive compact SUV that’s better-looking than the model it replaced"There are two petrol engines to choose from, a 138bhp three-cylinder, 1.5-litre petrol engine is offered in the front-wheel drive X1 sDrive18i, while the sDrive20i sits on the next rung of the ladder with a 2.0-litre, 189bhp engine, and the four-wheel drive xDrive20i sits above that. The latter is a quick car, reaching 62mph from rest in just over seven seconds, although its fuel economy can't match the less expensive model.

PROS
Very good to drive
Cheap to run
Practical

CONS
Expensive to buy
Baffling list of optional extras
Basic model is two-wheel-drive only

The BMW X1 is a fun-to-drive and well-built alternative to the likes of the Volvo XC40 and Audi Q3.

Pros
Enjoyable to drive
High-quality interior
Decent cabin space

Cons
A little noisy at speed
Limited smartphone mirroring
Alternatives have bigger boots
