2. BMW X1:
The new X1—whose base model gets the basics like an eight-speed auto, a 228 horsepower 2.0-liter turbo I4, vinyl seats, power front seats, 18-inch wheels, dynamic cruise control and a 6.5-inch infotainment screen— drives anything like the outgoing model, the cheapest BMW will be worth every penny of its asking price.
1. Range Rover Evoque:
The Range Rover Evoque is a quiet, comfortable, luxurious and decent handling crossover that isn’t overly ostentatious. But it’s not cheap. As Jason Torchinsky said in his review: “Do you want a car with a nice interior and a nice view that doesn’t make you look like an asshole? Buy this Evoque. It won’t be cheap.”
