The 2018 BMW X2 is a great everyday driver that offers a smooth ride and feels balanced and controlled around turns.
It rarely feels short on power, as its 2.0L 4-cylinder engine delivers a solid 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. The engine feels responsive and provides quick accelerations when passing other cars on the highway. Plus, it’s mated to an 8-speed STEPTRONIC automatic transmission that provides smooth shifting.
It comes standard in front-wheel drive, but has the available xDrive all-wheel drive system to tackle any road surface. Plus, you can choose between three driving modes-Comfort, Eco Pro, and Sport-which will alter the driving dynamics to suit your taste.
Interior Space & Amenities
The 2018 BMW X2 easily seats five people, with an especially spacious front row-39.8 inches of headroom and 40.3 inches of legroom, to be exact.
There’s also a good amount of cargo room for shopping bags, luggage, and other items. It has 21.6 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats. Fold the back row down, and that space expands to 50.1 cubic feet. There’s also extra storage space under the cargo area floor panel, which is especially useful for hiding away more precious items.
The space won’t be the only thing leaving you feeling comfortable. In fact, the BMW X2 has lots of amenities that’ll do the trick.
It comes standard with 10-way power front sport seats, so you can get in that perfect seating position. Plus, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel are available to get cozy on colder nights.
Overall, you’ll have accommodations to make for a nice and relaxing ride.
You’ll also have plenty of features that’ll help keep you connected and entertained. For instance, the BMW X2 comes standard with the iDrive 6.0 infotainment system. Not only will you find all your media options here, but you can use your voice to give simple commands, such as choosing a radio station. This makes it easy to navigate through the system while still focusing on your drive.
The available Head-up Display will also help keep your eyes on the road ahead. Speed, directions, are other important information will be projected directly on the windshield, right in your line of sight.
Apple CarPlay™ is available, which displays some of your smartphone’s apps on the car’s display screen. With this feature, you can listen to podcasts, send text messages, and more without fumbling around with your phone.
Everyone on board will appreciate the available Wi-Fi hotspot, which allows you to surf the web without eating up your phone’s data. Furthermore, you’ll love the optional wireless charging pad. You can leave your phone cord at home and still always have a full battery.
