2013 bmw x1

BMWs always command a lot of attention, and the X1 enters a brand-new segment for the automaker. Some of its praise has been faint -- one reviewer called it a "1-series five-door hatchback" -- and it ranks low on the value scale, but you can't dismiss the stature of the brand. If gas prices continue to rise, the X1's profile could go up as well.

Odds: 9-1
