BMW X2 SUV 2018 left front cornering

Classy interior and tidy handling add to the X2’s appeal, but a firm ride and compromised practicality detract from the overall package it offers. Slightly restricted space and practicality leaves it as more of a pumped-up hatchback rather than a practical family SUV. Ultimately the Volvo XC40 is still the king of the class while if you want a BMW, the more practical X1 is a better bet.

Trim: M35i

Equipment levels do look a little stingy given the price. You might get an automatic gearbox, four-wheel drive, a limited slip differential, heated front seats, two-zone climate control, cruise control, a DAB radio, sat nav and rear parking sensors, but the options list is long and includes many things you’ll want to add. That includes adjustable lumbar support, metallic paint, front parking sensors and the infotainment upgrade with Apple CarPlay

Engine: M35i

Despite its 2.0-litre turbocharged engine being related to the one found in the regular X2 20i, a bigger turbo, new pistons and a raft of other changes take the power output to a muscular 302bhp. 0-62mph is over in a brief 4.9sec and it feels muscular even when you’re not thrashing it. We just wish it sounded a bit more tuneful and was a bit keener to rev out.
