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 UX, Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class and Mini Clubman.

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.
