1. BMW X1


Despite the compact dimensions, limited interior space regarding the price, the BMW X1 is a sports car among the SUVs. With a 228hp turbocharged engine, quick transmission and perfect road holding, X1 can bring the smile on your face in twisty turns and on more demanding sections. However, at $34,500 base price, it is still expensive for an SUV with less space than a hatchback.
