9) 2018 BMW X4

$47,600 | U.S. News Score: 7.8/10

Value: The BMW X4 has one of the highest average transaction prices and costs of ownership in its class. Much of its higher cost of ownership can be explained by its high starting price. After all, an expensive car depreciates more, costs more in taxes, and costs more to insure. However, the X4 also had high maintenance and repair costs, which you can’t blame on its high price tag, moving it to the bottom of our Best Luxury Compact SUV for the Money ranking.

Quality: If you prefer a sporty SUV, and utility isn’t a top priority, the BMW X4 may suit you. It boasts agile handling, standard all-wheel drive, and two potent turbocharged engine options.

The X4 comes standard with many features, like an easy-to-operate infotainment system, front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, and Mobile Office, which allows you to check emails, texts, and voice messages while driving. You can opt for extras like Apple CarPlay, a Wi-Fi hot spot, and wireless phone charging.

Due to the X4’s sloping roof, rear-seat space is cramped, and there’s little room for cargo. However, the front seats are spacious and the cabin is attractive.
