2021 BMW X2 vs. Its Competition

2021 BMW X2
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

If you’re going to look at the X2, you should also consider its more conventional X1 sibling.

They’re identical under the skin, and the X1 is a little cheaper.

For style and practicality, we like the Volvo XC40, which offers impressive turbo punch, too.

The newest Mercedes GLA isn’t a bargain, but it’s well-equipped and evocatively styled.

Audi’s Q3 is something of a bargain for its tech and sophistication, so don’t leave it off your list.

The Jaguar E-Pace is pretty and fun to drive, though its interior doesn’t impress.
