Most drivers don't worry about a car's exterior as long as it can take what they want to haul to their destination. Others prefer to make a statement as they cruise the city, without paying much mind to utility and practicality.
BMW knows it can't please everyone with a single model, so it made two subcompact SUVs for both sides of the fence. The X1 offers a traditional look to house its utility crossover, and the 2019 BMW X2 instead makes statements.
It's a tall hatchback that looks much different from the X1 -- and the rest of the segment, for that matter. It does have its own set of dynamic benefits, though. For example, only the X2 gets the M35i trim for ultimate performance. On the other hand, it costs more to get the 2019 BMW X2, which compromises cabin comfort to prioritize its fashion statement.
What's New for 2019?
The 2019 BMW X2 is in its second year of production.
This year, Apple CarPlay and navigation capability come standard, as do the more advanced driver aids from last year. Also, this year serves as the debut for the M35i variant. Here, you get more power and a more intense aesthetic.
This year's subcompact luxury crossover comes with a generous list of standard and optional features.
Because the base 2019 BMW X2 already has lots of features to offer, that will be the best trim for the majority of buyers. Adding the Convenience package doesn't hurt by any means. Of course, if the promise of all-wheel drive and the contents of the Convenience package entice you, it's best to go directly to the new top-of-the-line M35i. It has nearly every feature plus additional upgrades for improved performance.
Three trims exist for the 2019 BMW X2:
Underneath the hood of the base and the midlevel trim is a 2.0L four-cylinder turbo engine, capable of generating 228 horses and 258 pound-feet. The top trim uses the same engine on paper, but it's been retuned to crank out over 300 horses and pound-feet. In all cases, the engine goes with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Lots of package options exist for the lower trims, but you can add some of those features by themselves. Likewise, the M35i already comes with some highlights.
Both the bottom two tiers come with the same basic features, which include driver-seat memory functions for adjustment, a push-button ignition for convenience, leather upholstery for a touch of luxury, LED headlights, and a body that sits on 18-inch alloy wheels. A power liftgate makes loading cargo more manageable, and the parking sensors help detect obstacles around the X2. Dual-zone auto climate control and a 40/20/40-split rear seat are also included.
In terms of technology, both tiers come with a 6.5-inch touchscreen that displays the iDrive infotainment interface by BMW. The automaker's ConnectedDrive services also come standard, as does Apple smartphone integration. A seven-speaker sound system with a single USB port lets you connect and play from other devices, too.
In both cases, you get automatic emergency braking at low speeds, forward collision warning, alerts in case of lane departure, high beams that turn on automatically, and a rearview camera for extra safety.
Going up to the M35i gets you a boost in power along with almost everything from the packages available to the lower trims. The only features not included are the adaptive dampers and panoramic sunroof, but you can add either one for a fee. Also, your M35i X2 comes with a rear spoiler, a front-axle limited-slip differential, and bigger brakes.
All buyers can add a Premium package to their 2019 BMW X2, regardless of the trim. In this well-named bundle, you get a more prominent 8.8-inch touchscreen plus the ability to use a touchpad for the infotainment. Additionally, a HUD displays more data for your drive. Plus, you'll get heated front seats and a heated steering wheel to make winter drives more bearable.
The 2019 BMW X2 is small enough to benefit well enough from its 2.0L four-cylinder turbo engine. Other competitors have a faster response in their steering wheels, but it doesn't make the X2's ride challenging. The inclusion of an all-wheel-drive system improves turning agility, too.
It's not uncommon for bargain luxury SUVs to cut corners on the cabin, and the X2 is the poster child for that concept. Passengers will notice a firm ride on narrow seats, and the windows and doors let in noise.
Front-seat passengers do get access to various adjustments, so finding a good position to drive in won't be a problem. Despite the dull appearance, the cabin does use high-quality materials, which is nice. The X2's counterpart has better headroom, though.
Compared to the X1, the 2019 BMW X2 doesn't have as much cargo space; the former can hold 27.1 cubes while the latter holds just 21.6. With folded down seats, the cargo capacity still trails a full 8 cubes behind its counterpart.
As far as tech goes, the X2 comes with a good list of features. These include a heads-up display, several safety aids, and a widescreen touchscreen. You'll also get access to wireless Apple CarPlay, but it costs money after the first free year. Currently, you cannot integrate with Android phones.

Formula for Calculating Dealer Cost:
- Example: Base BMW X2 invoice price + the dealer Invoice price of options + destination - Holdback = Total Dealer Cost.
- What is Holdback? A hidden amount that manufacturers give back to a dealer. It is a percentage of the MSRP or the Invoice price.
Total Dealer Cost - Rebate and Incentive + Taxes / Licensing Fees = True Dealer Cost. (You can get rebates and incentives here.)
Note: All BMW X2 MSRP, invoice and dealer cost dollar figures above are approximate amounts. Prices are subject to change without notice.
A note about rebates: Most rebates are subtracted from the "on the road" figure. In most cases, you can have the rebate if you are arranging your own financing or you are paying cash. If you decide to use the manufacturer’s low interest financing, you do not usually get the rebate. Ask your dealer for details.
