This sporty SUV has a lower centre of gravity than the majority of its competitors. This contributes to its distinctive hot-hatch looks – and helps to make it very urban-friendly. The X2 is ideal for families too, not least because of its five-door body, which makes access for rear-row travellers of all ages a hassle-free process.
Inside the BMW X2, all five seats are fixed low compared to those in, say, the X1, which probably accounts for the cabin’s sporty demeanour. Although the rear compartment can easily accommodate three adults, it’s ideally suited to conveying a trio of younger passengers, who will find it to be eminently spacious. There’s also room for a 470-litre boot, which, with rear seats folded, can be expanded to a handy 1,355-litre capacity.
The BMW X2 is offered with a range of petrol and diesel engines, including an entry-level 1.5-litre petrol unit, which allows the car to go from 0-60mph in approximately 9.4 seconds. This 138bhp engine also enables the X2 to manage up to 42.2mpg and produce CO2 emissions from 151g/km. If you require the greenest possible results, we suggest choosing an X3 plug-in hybrid variant, which is typically fitted with a 1.5-litre 217bhp petrol-electric engine. This returns as much as 166.2mpg while producing emissions as low as 39g/km – and it delivers 0-60mph in around 6.6 seconds.
Audio entertainment is provided by a minimum six-speaker stereo system, which includes an AM/FM radio, DAB digital tuner and a CD player. AUX and USB inputs offer plug-play-and-charge capability, while Bluetooth provides audio streaming options and hands-free facility. Other standard features include an 8.8-inch touchscreen that allows access to a wide range of navigation functions, such as up-to-the-minute traffic information. The car is fitted with Apple CarPlay preparation too, making it possible to mirror your iPhone via the X2’s own display screen. Furthermore, this SUV comes with a maximum five-star Euro NCAP rating, and plenty of safety tech, such as rain-sensing headlights that activate without the need for driver input.
