2020 BMW X2 vs. Its Competition

2020 BMW X2
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

Only the X2 offers the sleek roofline that BMW thinks some crossover buyers might want, though the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class is nearly as svelte.

Up for a redesign, the 2020 GLA is joined this year by a more practical GLB companion that has broader appeal.

The Jaguar E-Pace is stylish and lots of fun, and discounts should be plentiful.

Audi’s Q3 and Volvo’s XC40 are the rational choices here thanks to their excellent value, spacious interiors, and all-around refinement.

If you’re set on a BMW, take some measurements before deciding between the X1 and the X2 since they’re the same vehicle underneath.
