Learn about the BMW X2

Summary

Well-equipped with an assortment of standard tech and safety features, the BMW X2 is a sleek subcompact SUV with luxurious touches. Launched as an all-new option for 2018, the vehicle has been updated over its short life to make it a more competitive option in a fairly crowded field. The higher-end BMW X2 M35i trim turns up the power while including a wider selection of standard features to give drivers a performance-focused SUV option. The vehicle's spacious cabin and solid safety scores make the BMW X2 an excellent option for families, regardless of the trim that you prefer.

Safety

Similar to many of the other options in the luxury subcompact SUV class, the BMW X2 places a large importance on providing drivers with an array of high-level safety features. The vehicle comes standard with a rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors and the manufacturer's Active Driving Assistance package, which includes:

  • Forward collision warning
  • Low-speed automatic emergency braking
  • Lane departure warning
  • Automatic high-beam headlights
  • Road sign recognition

While all of the BMW X2 trims include the same standard safety features, the BMW X2 M35i adds specialized M Sport brakes.

Interior

Featuring a minimalist design with soft-touch plastics and metallic accents, the BMW X2 has an attractive interior. While base models come standard with synthetic leather upholstery and eight-way power-adjustable front seats, consumers can upgrade to genuine leather upholstery with heated steering wheel and seats if they wish. Some drivers have found that wind noise is noticeable when driving at highway speeds, but the same can be said for many other options in this class. All models come with two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors to make driving with young children a safe and easy task.

Technology

One of the strongest selling points of the 2020 BMW X2 is without a doubt the long-list of standard and available technological features, which includes:

  • BMW's iDrive infotainment system with an 8.8-inch touchscreen display
  • Apple CarPlay smartphone integration with a year-long subscription
  • Built-in navigation system
  • HD Radio and Bluetooth with seven-speaker sound system

The infotainment system can be managed via the touchscreen controls or through the rotary knob and touchpad near the console. BMW's iDrive system is regularly celebrated for its intuitive design and easy-to-use commands.

Space

Easily capable of seating up to five passengers, the BMW X2 is perfect for the whole family. While the front seats offer ample head and legroom, some drivers have found rear headroom to be fairly tight. However, the rear seats are more than comfortable enough to keep young passengers satisfied on long-distance trips. Offering up to 21.6 cubic feet of cargo space, the BMW X2 2019 increases this total to 50.1 cubic feet when the rear seats are folded down.

Comfort

Drivers have two engine options when choosing a new BMW X2: the front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. XDrive28i models are equipped with a 228-horsepower turbocharged 2.0 L four-cylinder engine, while the all-wheel drive BMW X2 M35i features an upgraded version that produces 301 horsepower. All models are outfitted with an eight-speed automatic transmission to provide smooth and calculated gear shifts. The vehicle's precise and well-balanced steering is perfect for going around those sharp corners. It'll make even the most mundane rides feel special.
