How it copes with people and clutter

Front space

The X2 may have a lower roof compared with the X1, but there’s still enough head room for six-foot-plus adults. However, the interior isn't much wider than that of many standard family hatchbacks, such as the Volkswagen Golf, so don’t expect the X2 to feel as airy inside as the Volvo XC40.

There’s a pair of cupholders up front that are deep enough to hold large takeaway cups, while the cubby in front of the gearlever makes a convenient spot to store smaller items. The centre armrest is a handy place to hide your phone and connect it to the USB input, plus you can stow a 500ml bottle in there, too.

Seat folding and flexibility

Although the X1 has an impressive array of practical touches, the X2 is rather less generously provisioned. For instance, there’s no option for sliding rear seats to prioritise either leg room or boot space; instead, you have to make do with just a two-position reclining backrest.

What you do get is a standard 40/20/40 split-folding rear bench, so you can carry long loads and still fit four people comfortably. The manual release catches are mounted on the rear bench, and there’s no option of an electric folding mechanism.

The front passenger seat has a wide range of adjustments, and you can add electric driver and passenger seat operation and variable lumbar support, by adding the optional Comfort pack.
