KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Keith Buglewicz


The 2018 BMW X2 is a sporty alternative to the BMW X1 SUV. Using the same basic mechanical underpinnings -- including the same 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder, 8-speed automatic and available all-wheel drive -- the X2 adds a sporty flair to the mix. With unique styling and an emphasis on driving entertainment over utility, the X2 is poised to take on other subcompact utilities, like the Audi Q3, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class, and the Infiniti QX30. But we think this is the best variation on the formula so far. The sharp looks make promises that the X2 easily keeps, and even the price is reasonable, at least for a European luxury brand. While something like the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 is undoubtedly quicker, the X2 is fun, good looking, and less expensive.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you've been looking for a European luxury crossover SUV you can afford, but one that still offers the kind of sporty flair and driving sophistication to match, this may be what you've been waiting for.

You May Not Like This Car If...

If you need a bigger back seat, a compact SUV like the BMW X3 or Mercedes-Benz GLC-Class may be a better choice. If you're OK with the size but want more performance, the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45 will deliver. However, both alternatives cost more money.

What's New for 2018

The 2018 BMW X2 is an all-new model, but with some familiar hardware since it's based on the BMW X1. However, the styling is all new, the mission is different from the X1, and there's never been a BMW X2 before.

Driving It Driving Impressions

Surprisingly, our first time behind the wheel of the BMW X2 was on a racetrack. This seems like an odd place to get one's first experience with a subcompact luxury SUV, but the 2018 BMW X2 puts an emphasis on its handling and performance. So, maybe not so surprisingly, it proved perfectly satisfying. The little BMW SUV boasts sharp steering, good power, and makes the most of its all-wheel-drive setup as it powers out of turns and down straightaways. Yet this doesn't mean it's brutal on the streets. Instead, the new X2 is as comfortable and composed on surface streets as you'd hope. The engine's 258 lb-ft of torque is available from a very low 1,450 rpm, meaning the X2 feels exceptionally responsive in traffic and when passing. The suspension that feels so adept on the track in Sport mode is perfectly comfortable and accommodating in Comfort on the street. 

Favorite Features

STYLE
The 2018 BMW X2 shape manages to combine sleek lines and the promise of utility without unnecessary bulk or the weird roofline of its X4 and X6 cousins. Of special note: This is the first time the BMW logo has appeared on the rearmost roof pillar since the BMW CSi in the 1970s.

PRICE
With the caveat that anything with a premium European badge is going to be on the pricey side, the 2018 BMW X2 is more affordable than you might think. Prices start at less than $40,000, and a nicely equipped model will come in at about $45,000. Best of all, the X2 feels worth every penny.
