The interior layout, fit and finish

Driving position and dashboard

One thing we must mention is the height of the driving position; you’re not much higher off the ground than in a regular hatchback, and you might be disappointed If you’re expecting a truly commanding view of the road.

Look past this and the driving position is actually a good one. The steering wheel has lots of adjustment for both reach and rake, and you can move the seat in several planes. It doesn’t matter if you’re over six foot or barely over five; you’ll be able to get comfortable.

Sat nav and infotainment

By family SUV standards, the X2 has a fantastic infotainment system. All versions come with a DAB radio, CD player, USB socket, Bluetooth and satellite navigation with traffic information. The screen is a rather small 6.5in, but the interface – a rotary selector dial surrounded by a handful of shortcut buttons – is wonderfully intuitive and conveniently positioned between the front seats.

Upgrade to the Navigation Plus package and you gain an 8.8in display, wireless charging for compatible devices and a touch-sensitive pad on top of the rotary dial controller that allows you to input addresses using handwriting. You also get a full-colour head-up display that projects information, such as your speed and navigation directions, onto the windscreen in your line of sight, so you don’t need to take your eyes off the road. Although this system is pretty pricey, it is worth considering given the ease it brings.
