      In the Volvo there s a button at the opening of the truck to fold down the seats. Just like the x1. So no need to reach that far. 👌

      I’m confused because in Turkey New Audi Q3 baggage volume is announced as 530 liters (when rear seats are totally in back position) Does it changes in different countries or is there something wrong with the values?

      For me Volvo looks better interior and exterior. Audi is looking bad from the outside but it's steering wheel is my favorite. BMW is just in the middle, not great not terrible.

      Volvo's side profile looks boxy and ridiculous.

      I don't get journalists' obsessions with the new Volvos. It's still one step below the Germans in terms of quality.

      Unfortunately, I've driven the X1 for years, so it's not in the running for my next car purchase. The Q3 looks like the type of sporty upgrade I'm looking for, but there's something about the XC40 that leaves the impression that it will age better.

      My comment may be late here. But did Mat knows that the sDrive20i is using a 7DCT? BMW dropped the 6AT and 8AT for the models below 20i. 20d onwards still uses the 8AT

      The xc40 seems to be more practical, for me the best inside and out are the xc40 and q3 the Beemer stands out from the exterior in a sporty way, but the interior is outdated

      My 2 litre petrol BMW X1 x drive is averaging 38.8 mpg overall and has done 45mpg on motorways tested tank fill to tank fill. Volvo mpg is reputed at 29 mpg for similar vehicle.

      Just got my 2019 Audi Q3 and it’s really impressive. One ANNOYING thing is my Apple Car Play won’t allow wireless connection. This is the reason Tesla is gonna destroy these German car makers. My old A5 had some stupid proprietary connection instead of USB. They always do something stupid.

      Frankly the shape of the Bimmer X1 and it's cool looking front lights, sleek tail lights are very attractive. You need to compare quality and in that regard, the BMW is the best overall. My X1 is the first vehicle that I've ever purchased that has had 0 defects from the factory! Even my 2012 Infiniti G37xS Coupe (Red) which at the time was the highest rated vehicle by Consumers Reports that they ever tested, which is a shame because the new Q50/60 which share all the same chassis and components are nowhere as good. The Audis in my honest opinion, have become like Fiats that require a lot of repairs and warranty replacements of parts. I won't even touch the Volvo because of their parts...they take forever to replace. Imagine that the BMW has a 14 year rust warranty....hahahah the Mazda's rust after only a few years. I have never winter driven my G and it's strictly a summer sports car. It's my hobby toy and has a lot of mods. But the stuff that has failed like a left front headlight assembly and rear LED tail light, one of the side air bag control modules that thankfully only needed reprogramming which the dealers don't do and force you to spend close to $2500 plus tax to remove and replace it is just shameful on a car with only 70,000 mostly highway kilometers or about 45,000 miles and this from a car manufactured in Japan! Have you seen the heads up display on the Mazdas? It's a cheap plastic screen in front of the driver and the Mercedes infotainment monitor that sits on top of the dash like an afterthought? Engineers: "Opps we forgot the screen....OK lets just put it on top here!" What happened to the old days where you had really nice screens inside beautiful and sleek interior consoles? One thing that this review didn't mention is the night time ambient lights inside the Bimmer. This has to be one of the nicest applications of an ambient light package I have ever seen. I studied the small SUV market for 2 months before I settled on the X1 and I'm so happy. The gas mileage is really quite good and Sport mode is really nice. I looked at everything from Acura down to the Mercedes before I made up my mind. The Jag and Landrover (Discovery and Evoque), yes their interiors are nice and pricing is competitive but in North America you don't travel with them unless you know where to service them, especially the Jags which seem to not like our cold climates. The Landrovers are too much like a casino gamble...you can get a good one like you could end up otherwise....And if you want to be really conservative you get the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid or the Honda CRV...and the obvious choice is Toyota. In Canada and the USA we get the B46 engine which is similar the B48 in Europe except ULEV (Ultra low emissions vehicle) and that great Aisin 8 speed transmission. It's front wheel drive based and is smooth as silk. The same setup can be found in the Mini Cooper Countryman and Clubman. The same engine which by the way benefitted from Toyota engineering design input because of the new Z4 and Supra engine is now being used in the new 3 series, 4 series, 5 series and X2...So we know it's really that good. Toyota is offering the same 2 liter engine in Asia only while they also both worked on the new 3 liter engine too my preference is for the 2 liter. It has almost the same amount of power and is more nimble and frugal too. And lastly, if you choose the optional Mineral Metallic White is among the very best paint jobs I've ever seen in this price point. Probably second only to top of the line Mercedes or Porsche 911!

      Don't like Volvo's because of parts and they are more expensive in Canada. Also they are not as quiet as the BMW: I have the 2018 X1 with Xdrive. I removed the all seasons that came with the 18" wheels and I'm using them as the winter wheels. In many parts of Canada winter tires are mandatory by law. Winters are inherently noisy by design. For summer I purchase a set of Niche 19" wheels with 245/40/19 Tires. These UHP summer tires are wider than the runflat set that come with the vehicle, are quieter and perform better than the OEM tires. Also the Canadian vehicles come with more insulation (probably because of the colder climate) and therefore the car is the quietest of the 3. There are no diesels in Canada (thankfully as I dislike the sound and smell of them) and the 2 litre engine actually performs best with a Burgermotorsports (BMS) Cold Air Intake and for about 300 quid or $700 you can add coding and an engine software upgrade. As we all know all vehicles today are software driven so the ECU (engine control unit / Computer) and it's software have hidden features that can be unlocked by a pro with software, a laptop and a ODBII connector. The number of things that can be done to an X1 is quite surprising. You can add a lot of the features of the other series vehicles including adding lots of LED lights outside and options such as one touch open and close windows, sunroof, mirrors etc. Some people even add HP and TQ to their vehicles (Up to 50 HP and 50 TQ min at the wheels!) There are chips too but that may or may not affect your warranty whereas you can stealth your software upgrades. As far as the interior is concerned, many of you who have had the pleasure of driving BMW's before you can say what you want about the interior being boring but for those people that have never driven one, well you that's exactly what you want: The Bimmer interior, a winning design and infotainment system that's better than most. Example, if you've seen the interior in the new Infiniti QX50, it's the same as the sedan and coupe...and is a big problem. Even the Mercedes based QX30 is really spartan and boring. Lexus is kind of 90's styling with Nakamichi 80's style buttons. To much hard fugly plastic in the Koreans and other Japanese like the Nissans, Acuras and Hondas.
