2019 BMW X2 Review

The sport-utility vehicle is dominating the car market, with vehicles like the 2019 BMW X2 leading the way. This new BMW SUV is sporty, luxurious, and fast. It’s great looks are matched by its safety features and high-tech upgrades. The standard model is also inexpensive for the quality and prestige of a BMW, meaning it is easier than ever to bring one of these beasts home.

The Outside

The exterior of the X2 is sleek and sporty looking. For comparison, the X2 looks like a smaller and sportier version of the X1. The handling has the feel of a sports car with good fuel economy and power. The suspension is also lower and firmer than the X1, which helps hold the road a lot better. There are three different configurations available, with the base model sporting front-wheel drive and the other two boasting all-wheel drive (AWD).

The Interior

The X2 interior is comfortable, with plenty of room for front-seat passengers. The front seats are power adjustable in eight different ways, with a moon roof option available for maximum convenience and aesthetic appeal. However, the lowered roof might limit space some for people in the back seats. Cargo storage is roughly 21 cubic feet. Fold the rear seats down, and there’s nearly 50 cubic feet of storage space.

Trim Models

The X2 is available in three different configurations, with the sDrive28i being the standard model. The next level up is the xDrive28i, and the X2 M35i is the top of the line. The available engine is a 2-liter turbo four cylinder hooked to an automatic eight-speed transmission.

Performance

The sDrive28i and xDrive28i both put out 228 horsepower and 258-pound feet of torque. The X2 M35i uses the same engine but with the horsepower boosted to over 300. The AWD models split the torque up, sending the power to the wheels for the most efficiency. In Sport mode, most of the power is sent to the rear wheels for a sports-car type of feel. The standard model hits 60 miles per hour in approximately 6 seconds. The M35i? Roughly 5 seconds. Fuel economy is decent, with the standard model having a rating of roughly 23 mpg in town and 32 mpg on the open road.

Safety Devices

There are several standard and optional safety features that the 2019 BMW X2 offers. Some of these features include a front-collision alert and lane-departing alarm. Windshield wipers that are heated and will automatically detect rain are also available. These devices will operate intermittently, depending on how hard it’s raining. Child-safety locks, traction control, and all-wheel disc brakes are standard features.

Technology

BMW is always up to date when it comes to installing the latest tech in their vehicles. The X2 is another example of high technology defining cars on the road today. The infotainment center for the BMW, the iDrive system, comes standard with a 6-and-a-half inch touch screen that is upgradeable to 8.8 inches. It comes standard with a high-output seven speakers stereo. It’s never been easier to jam out on a long road trip!

A rear-facing camera, automatic climate adjustment, and parking assistant also come as standard equipment. Available optional equipment includes an automatic-dimming rear mirror, built-in hotspot for Wi-Fi, and wireless charging. Owners can also upgrade the stereo to a surround-sound system with 12 speakers.

Final Thoughts

The new-and-improved 2019 X2 is a ride worth looking into. With a combination of looks, handling, fuel economy, and power, the X2 will get passengers around with a sports-car like feel. Considering how affordable the standard base model is, it’s easier than ever to get that BMW driving experience.
