2018 BMW X2 Review

Pros & Cons What’s New
It offers a very refined european driving experience. It’s zippy around town and fun to drive. All new model for 2018.
I’m 6’3″ and I didn’t feel cramped in the front seat. Of course that meant there was no room for someone to comfortably sit behind me. I like that the cargo door raises high and isn’t in the way when loading & unloading.
Considering this is an SUV the driving position isn’t as high as I’d like it to be.
The BMW roundel badge on the C pillar does not look high-end or luxurious.

The BMW X2 is a brand new crossover SUV (they call it an SAV for sports activity vehicle) from BMW. It’s a subcompact luxury SUV offering traditional BMW sporty driving characteristics. Oddly the X2 is actually slightly smaller and offers a little less room inside than the BMW X1.

Our test car was the AWD xDrive28i  version. There is a front wheel drive version which BMW names the sDrive which is a little slower to 60mph even though it’s lighter and costs about $2K less.

Q. Should I put the X2 on my car shopping list?
A. It’s a pretty average crossover SUV.  I’d say if you’re a BMW enthusiast or really want a subcompact european crossover then sure why not add it to your list but generally speaking I’d say there are better options for a short car shopping list, including BMWs own X1.
