Car reviews - BMW - X2 - xDrive20d
Is BMW’s X2 xDrive20d another small SUV that priorities style over substance?
6 Mar 2019
UNLESS you’ve been living under a rock, you’d know that small SUVs have become all the rage in recent times. The momentum here has become so strong that some car-makers have moved to field multiple models in the same segment. Just let that sink in for a moment.
BMW is one such example in the premium market, with it recently adding the X2 to its product line-up that already features the mechanically related X1. Just like Audi with its Q2, the X2 is a style-focused affair that BMW hopes will bring a slew of new buyers to the brand.
The X1 is a strong effort in the first place, so it remains to be seen what, other than style, the X2 does better to justify its existence. Does it actually have something more to offer, or is it another case of style over substance? We test the X2 in flagship xDrive20d form to find out.
