Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

Skoda’s smallest SUV is a comfortable, class-leading family car.

PROS
Very comfortable
Seriously practical
Generous standard kit
Finance offers are very competitive

CONS
Not as sharp to drive as some rivals
1.0-litre petrol engine struggles on motorways
Lack of super-low-emissions engine
Looks very similar to larger Kodiaq

By:

The Karoq is an accomplished crossover that will slot effortlessly into family life. It’s practical, comfortable, and packed with clever touches inside and out.

Pros
Roomy interior
Generously equipped
Cheaper than a Tiguan

Cons
Not as engaging to drive as rivals
DSG gearbox isn't the best
Less characterful than its predecessor, the Yeti

By: 
carkeys.co.uk

The Skoda Karoq is a spacious family car with a big boot. It’s easy to drive and comfortable – so long as you avoid the big wheels – but Edition models are expensive

Pros
Very practical
Solid build quality
Comfortable with smaller wheels

Cons
Big wheels amplify bumps
The 115hp petrol’s underpowered
Top-of-the-range model is expensive

By: 
carwow.co.uk

BMW has rearranged the X1’s lineup for 2018 and now offers five distinct trims—base, Convenience, M Sport, Premium, and M Sport Premium—each with more features than the last. Only a few features are still offered as standalone options on non-Premium trims, including front and rear parking sensors ($800), LED headlamps ($950), Navigation ($950), and heated seats and steering wheel ($550). Some new features join the party for 2018; a backup camera is now standard, as is BMW’s ConnectedDrive in-car concierge service. Apple CarPlay is now optional ($300) as is onboard Wi-Fi with wireless device charging ($500). A new color—Sunset Orange Metallic—replaces Chestnut Bronze.

Pros
Sweetheart engine and transmission,
athletic chassis,
capacious cargo hold.

Cons
Unsupportive standard seats,
slow infotainment system,
subtle exterior styling.

By:

The 2018 BMW X1 is a compelling crossover pick for a budget BMW buyer who can’t do without a roundel.

pros
Subtle but good looks
Responsive turbo-4
Good 8-speed automatic
Relatively good value in base guise
Spacious cargo area

Cons
Options add up quickly
Front seats aren’t the best seats
Pricey advanced safety package
No manual transmission?

The 2018 BMW X1 is a five-seat compact SUV in the luxury segment. It comes in two versions: the front-wheel-drive X1 sDrive28i and the all-wheel-drive X1 xDrive28i. From there, you have two directions to go: xLine Design or the sportier M Sport Design. After that, you can add various option groups that BMW calls tiers. The M Sport Design already comes with the Convenience group, which is optional on the xLine Design. Afterward, packages and stand-alone options are available based on which initial design and group you select.

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
Not particularly quiet on the highway
Standard sport suspension may be jarring on rough roads
