2019 BMW X2 vs. Its Competition

2019 BMW X2
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The BMW X2 likely competes against the BMW X1 for some buyers who are on the fence for looks vs.


The X1 is marginally more useful, although we’d spring for better seats in the X1 that are standard on the X2.

The Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is less useful than both, a cramped rear seat is its demerit.

The Audi Q3 is new this year, we’ll update this space once we’ve driven it.

The XC40 is fun to drive, and Volvo offers a new subscription service for that car that could interest buyers.

The E-Pace is better looking than the bunch, and top trims are fun to drive, but its interior is a letdown.
