BMW X2 Gets Compared To A Converse Sneaker In Latest Review

If you’re in the market for a sub-compact SUV that’s not necessarily all about practicality, the BMW X2 definitely fits that mold.

Despite being slightly smaller than the X1, it’s also more expensive. Of course, that makes perfect sense to BMW, who are in the business of charging you more when it comes to style-focused models such as the X2, X4, X6 and even the 4-Series Gran Coupe, compared to a regular 3-Series sedan.

Still, it’s not like your stuff won’t fit inside an X2. In fact, the boot is of a decent size according to Carwow, and aside from the rather high load lip, you should be able to slide pretty much anything in there, especially if you also fold the rear seats.

Sitting in the back is also a pleasant experience, with plenty of knee room and decent headroom for somebody around 6 feet tall (1,83 m) – anyone taller than that might have some issues though.

As for how it drives, apparently the answer to that is “quite sporty for a small SUV”. It has sharp and appropriately heavy steering, excellent grip and a punchy 2.0-liter diesel engine. On the downside, the X2 also has a rough suspension and an annoying amount of tire noise at high speed.

    It looks better than I expected in person on the outside, but the inside is x1 which i loathe. It’s like getting a current gen f series car and has little to no resemblance in tech or luxury of the new g series cars they have in the x3, 5 series and 7. Seems like a huge waste of cash for not much much cheaper than an x3.

    Just another tall hatchback. Dull, as its competitors, but I must say it looks rather nice.

  • Salih Ahzem

    If the car the X2 is based on is a compact (read: the next 1 Series) how this thing qualifies as subcompact?

    With that said, with each passing day the lines between CUV segments get blurrier.

    No he’s spot on. Looks nice when kitted in person on the outside. Cheap inside and slow front wheel drive otherwise. It’s a well fitted cheap suit.

    I really like the X2 and I think it looks great especially compared to the X4 and X6 models which I think are absolutely hideous! The X4 and X6 look like bloated frogs to me….maybe it’s just me but I think BMW should move the X2 look upscale into its product lineup. Definitely one of the best looking BMW models in recent years!

    Dull as a car, but rather nice in the looks.

  • klowik

    It’s more like a normal hatch than SUV. I expect it to have higher ground clearance at least 200mm.

    Well I hope they offer this model in an M with Xdrive and 400hp.or so eventually . Then I’ll take a look at it…
