Review

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.

M Sport X only really adds silver exterior trim to make the car look more like an off-roader, along with the the M Sport styling additions and leather seats.

The power of the 187bhp diesel is available from low engine revs, making it easy to whizz up to motorway speeds without having to thrash the engine to within an inch of its life. Helping matters is the eight-speed automatic gearbox that can slur smoothly between ratios when you’re being sensible yet shift swiftly when you take control using the paddle shifters behind the steering wheel.
