EPA has the X1 listed as a "midsize", and the Tiguan (and X3) as a "Small SUV".

That it's small is part of the charm. You get it with the same engines as its bigger brother, but with less weight it becomes sportier. Certainly far sportier than the Tiguan.
And there's one place where the X1 is bigger than you'd think - the dashboard is smaller, so you have more lengthwise room for taller drivers. That was what disqualified the X3 for me - my knee would bump the dashboard even with the seat all the way back.
