On a Golf The usual advice is to put the newest tyres on the rear of the car. But they seem to have been beaten by the latest generation of Michelins, Contis and Bridgestones. The Bridgestone seem more satisfying overall but the Michelins are known for lasting longer and have better wet braking.

It is interesting to note, though, that the test mule features bigger-than-usual air intakes, large alloy wheels, and most interesting of them all, dual exhaust tips. Notice how the badge on the front fender is hidden?

Could it then be the M logo? I think it is. Other than that, a lot of the design elements appear to be in their proper places. The only other curiosities are the light fixtures and the front grille. The headlights, in particular, look slimmer than they used to be. The X5, after all, has already adopted that look.

Unfortunately, all their handwork yielded little in fresh upgrades. All the usual pieces are in their proper place. The infotainment screen sitting on the dashboard looks a little bigger. Perhaps the bigger infotainment system is one those upgrades.

As an updated model, the new X1 should also be in line for new options and accessories. The current version of the crossover is powered by a wide range of engines, beginning with a 1. This engine is rated at horsepower and pound-feet of torque. Other markets have a detuned version that cranks out horsepower and pound-feet of torque. The X1 also has diesel engines in its lineup, most notably a 2. Together, the two combine to produce an output of horsepower and pound-feet of torque.

I mentioned all these engines because some of them — maybe even all of them — could receive slight bumps in power. Updated models typically get this type of upgrade so in the absence of any meaningful changes in the exterior and interior of the X1, this could be where BMW makes up for it. Both versions carry the 2. Given these price points, the updated X1 should tack on a few extra thousands to these amounts.

Mercedes does claim that the GLA returns up to 35 mpg, which would be better than what the X1 or the Audi Q3 are capable of. The GLA has proven itself up to the task of carrying Mercedes compact luxury crossover affairs.

Volvo has risen from the ashes and become one of the most popular luxury brands in the world. The Volvo XC40 is a good example of that. Between its to-die-for looks, modern interior, and the best technology and safety features of all crossovers in its segment, the Volvo XC40 has become a true contender in the compact luxury crossover race. The most powerful of the bunch is the T5, and it can produce a healthy horsepower, putting it right in the middle of contention.
