2019 BMW X2 Review
Are you looking to drive through the streets of Manhattan, Bronx, and Queens in style? If so, nothing gets the job done quite like a luxury crossover. The versatility of crossover vehicles are sought out by many, and for good reason. You can enjoy a spacious interior and reliable handling all at the same time.
Crossovers are the second-most competitive class of car on the market, so you’ll have plenty to choose from even if you narrow it down to luxury models. The upcoming 2019 BMW X2 tends to stand out from the 2019 BMW lineup with its multitude of exciting features. Find out if they’re enough for this crossover to meet your standards in our comprehensive 2019 BMW X2 review.
BMW X2 Interior
This spacious 2019 BMW X2 crossover is expected to be quite similar to its already impressive counterpart from last year. Up to five people will be able to sit comfortably inside with adequate headroom and legroom for everyone. One of the most impressive features, however, is the cargo area which offers 21.6 cubic feet of space even with the back row of seats still up. Fold them down and that expands to 50.1 cubic feet.
As a luxury crossover, you can expect all kinds of premium features inside. On every model, you’ll be able to enjoy SensaTec upholstery with stylish stitching all across the seats and dash. You can upgrade to leather, of course, along with aluminum and wood finishes. There’s even LED lighting inside to make your cabin a bit more atmospheric.
No crossover is complete without an impressive engine, and the BMW X2 comes with one of the best. Its 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine offers an incredible 228 horsepower with 258 lb-ft of torque. Every single model comes with this engine, so you won’t have to upgrade to gain access to this level of power. Alongside this engine, you can enjoy an 8-speed automatic transmission with available paddle shifters if you want a more involved experience.
You can also enjoy BMW’s famous xDrive all-wheel drive system which is standard in every model. This innovative system will power the front wheels by default but can push power to the back wheels when necessary based on settings, road conditions, driving patterns, and more. The Driving Experience Control allows you to customize your experience further with driving modes including Eco Pro, Comfort, and Sport.
When it comes to safety, BMW has always been impressive, and the 2019 BMW X2 is no exception. Opt for the Driving Assistance Package and you’ll have access to numerous driver assistance systems designed to prevent accidents from ever happening in the first place. Among these features are Forward Collision Warning with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Departure Warning.
The new X2 also features traffic sign recognition technology. This comes in handy when trying to read signs in fog or heavy rain, but many find it most useful when it comes to speed limit signs. Sometimes we miss them, but with this feature, you’ll never have to worry about being out of the know.
