BMW X1 xDrive25i 2016 review: Torquing Heads


The new BMW X1 is the United Nations of small SUV's. Designed by an Australian and engineered in Germany; it has also negotiated with all key stakeholders to create a driving experience that keeps everyone at peace.

While the X1 may be classed as a small SUV, a clever redesign for its second generation has helped it to pack a big punch for its category.

We spent some time in the top-spec X1 xDrive25i to see if it cut the mustard.

Plus: Joshua Dowling judges as the X1 xDrive25i goes head-to-head with the Lexus NX200t
