Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used BMW X2 hatchback?
Make sure you check the alloy wheels for kerb damage, particularly on M Sport cars with larger wheels that are more susceptible to striking something. Parking sensors are standard on the X2, so parking dents and scratches shouldn’t be a major issue. Even so, make sure there are no poor-quality paint repairs to the bumpers and bodywork, because these could void the corrosion warranty if they weren’t carried out to the manufacturer's specification.
The interior is filled with lots of high-quality materials, but since these types of cars tend to be used by families, you should make sure there are no stains on the boot carpet or in the footwells – particularly on X2s with a light interior colour.
The BMW X2 is too new to have any conclusive reliability data on it, and it’s also too new to have been included in the latest What Car? Reliability Survey. However, BMW as a brand didn’t do particularly well, ranking a middling 16th out of 31 car brands.
