The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.6
5.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 BMW X2 has agile handling to match its sleek looks, and while it gives up some interior space for the low roofline, it still retains some crossover utility. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class blends hatchback with crossover, with better than mixed results.
