Review

We were looking to replace our VW GTI. Was dead set on the VW R. But after test driving the X2 we were convinced this was the car for our family of 3. It’s Zippy, fun, and beautiful. Got it with all the bells and whistles and it was well worth it. We are simply in love.

Review

I'm Glad i got BMW X2 on lease, it looks great from outside, driving experience is great and comfort. i bought with ought navigation,Driving Aids, Honestly i was not impress what i had exceptions from BMW, Good thing she drive it its not for me regular basis. i,m 6foot fit body. when i drive its great on, but not convenience inside for example- Cup Holder is so small cant place DD's Medium Cup, also when i,m tiring and its kind of hard to reach to cup holder to pickup coffee around stick shift, Another thing no right holder for sun glasses, its not on spot where usually vehicle would have cabin near rear view mirror. i have an iPhone and once i connect it, its keep push screen of Glimpse Map which is annoying. Also i cant skip music track from steering wheel for some reason, i have to reach near A/V display and press from there to skip song. Honest opinion its good looking small SUV but not my Choice. cant wait for lease to be over.

Review

We were thrilled when BMW offered their fantastic X2 lease program at the end of August. It's not as great now but still their best lease incentive especially on the X2 xDrive as per their website. The X2 is a fantastic combination of everything BMW in a very cool package that is very different than most everything else in this segment. The X2 is perfect for empty-nesters who are no longer soccer moms and who no longer need or want 7 passenger seating when it is not needed 95% of the time. We had a first generation X1 which we enjoyed greatly and recently a 320 xDrive with a unique sport package. This X2 combines both but feels like so much more. We did not get the latest X1 because it was SO much more expensive and not as cool. The X2 feels more substantial than the 320 with much better steering feel and much better seats. It is also way more exciting to look at and drive. Two Adults easily fit in the back seat with room to spare. The headlights are "flame-throwers" and WAY better than the 320. In the month we have had it, we've seen only two others here in Northeast NJ. The biggest "con" is the rearward visibility which in a word is DANGEROUS. For example, in my sons VW GTI, the back-up camera is protected inside the rear tailgate swing out handle. Therefore it is always clean. The X2 has a similar swing out tailgate handle, but the camera is not located there. It is totally exposed to the elements and the visibility is greatly diminished when it rains. I'm sure it will be much worse when it gets covered with winter grime. Without that camera you will feel like you need a "spotter" especially in the bad weather when the camera is basically useless. The rear visibility in general is like looking through a periscope. If/when you take one for a test drive, please take the time to test that yourself. My wife hates backing it out of our long driveway when it rains. She also parks it very far away from others in shopping parking lots to ensure she does not have to back it up when there are many cars and pedestrians present. At a minimum, please make sure to purchase the PDC (Park Distance Control) option for $800 which provides very accurate visual and audible warnings during tight maneuvers. We wish we did. The X2 should also include rear cross traffic as well as blind spot warnings since the rearward and rear quarter visibility is that bad. We really like this X2 and were downright surprised when were able to get such a great lease deal. It feels and looks very special and different. We just wish we had gotten the PDC option because it REALLY needs that at a minimum for the safety of the X2 passengers and others behind it. We absolutely say you should consider the X2. If you like the solid and technical feel of the VW GTI, you'll love this. Just remember to test drive it in tight reverse parking and get the PDC option at a minimum.

Great looking, head turner, good performance, car like SUV and not a BOX. Critics need to understand different requirements for different people. Not everybody needs to have very spacious rear seats, nor everyone needs BOX design SUV.
