Used test: BMW X2 vs Volvo XC40 costs

You can save around £10,000 on either of these prestige family SUVs by buying used, but which should you choose? We have the answer...

What will they cost? 

New, the X2 would have cost you slightly more to buy than the XC40, but here, at two years old, it’s actually cheaper by around £1500. That’s good news if you’re buying one now, but bear in mind that it’s lost more of its value over two years than the XC40, and that heavier depreciation is likely to continue over the next few years, adding to your overall running costs. 

The X2 is likely to cost you less to fuel, but both its insurance and servicing costs are higher than the XC40’s.

New BMW X2 & Jaguar E-Pace vs Volvo XC40

In the most recent What Car? Reliability Survey, the X2 didn’t feature, but the similar X1 finished in 12th place in the family SUV class, while the XC40 finished in a commendable second place. BMW as a brand finished in 21st place out of 31 manufacturers, while Volvo ended in 11th place.

Both cars get automatic emergency braking as standard, with the XC40 adding lane departure warning. And both cars scored five stars in the Euro NCAP safety tests.
