2021 BMW X2 Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2021 BMW X2?

The subcompact BMW X2 uses the same platform as the German automaker’s boxier (and more practical) X1 SUV. The five-seat X2, however, has a more coupelike roofline, which gives it a sportier appearance. It’s powered by the same 228-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine as the X1 and comes with an eight-speed automatic transmission and front- or all-wheel drive. A 301-hp, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder is available. Competitors include the Lexus UXMercedes-Benz GLA-Class and Mini Clubman

What’s New on the 2021 BMW X2?

Satellite radio is now standard, and M35i versions produced from November 2020 on get a new mesh grille. 

What Features in the 2021 BMW X2 Are Most Important?

Standard features include: 

  • Power liftgate
  • Rain-sensing windshield wipers
  • Navigation with an 8.8-inch touchscreen
  • Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity 
  • Forward collision warning with city collision mitigation
  • Lane departure warning

Available features include: 

  • Panoramic moonroof
  • Wireless device charging
  • Heated front seats 
  • Heated steering wheel
  • Harman Kardon surround-sound system 
  • Adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go capability

Should I Buy the 2021 BMW X2?

The BMW X2 is an intriguing mix of small SUV and, in M35i form, performance hatchback. Interior space is good considering its small size, but visibility is poor and power from the base engine is modest.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
