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.get the best price
Trim: M Sport
M Sport is still a popular choice, but the 19in or 20in wheels available and stiffer suspension won’t do the ride any favours. Although the heated front seats appeal, you are mainly paying for a sporty bodykit and racier interior trim, so spec the seats as an option.
Engine: sDrive 20i
The 2.0-litre petrol engine almost as powerful as the 20d diesel – and has exactly the same 0-62mph time of 7.7 seconds. This means that while you don’t get the low-rev torque of a diesel, it still pulls well in all gears, with plenty happening above 2000rpm.
