Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The X2 launched as a 2019 model and, this being only its sophomore year, BMW hasn't changed much for 2020. Last year's standard 6.5-inch infotainment display has been ditched in favor of the formerly optional 8.8-inch unit; navigation is now also standard across the X2 lineup. Otherwise, the X2 carries on essentially unchanged.

Pros
Playful handling,
chic exterior styling,
economical at the pump.

Cons
Too-harsh ride,
interior design is plain,
compromised cargo space.

Materials quality and build quality are top-notch
Quick acceleration and sporty handling

Cons
Less rear headroom and cargo space than the X1
