BMW X2 (2018–)

What's good

Very good blend of performance and real world economy from 18d and 20d engine.

Handles better than an X1 in corners yet still comfortable.

What to watch out for

Rear seats are cramped for adults with limited headroom.

Ride is firmer than an X1.

Expensive list prices compared to an X1.

1-2-2019: Report of BMW delar refusing to release BMW X2 due to an issue with its rear light cluster.


20-08-2018: R/2018/211: BMW 1 series, 2 series, 3 series, 4 series, 5 series, 6 series, 7 series, X1, X2, MINI. SOFTWARE FAULT WITH CRANKSHAFT SENSOR. The affected vehicles may be equipped with a crankshaft sensor with a software fault. The crankshaft sensor cannot process the signal values from the crankshaft transmitter due to an improper firmware level. The firmware does not compensate sufficiently the temperature gradients and the magnetic field strength of the sensor electronic. If the crankshaft sensor cannot process the signal values from the transmitter, the Digital Diesel Electronic (DDE) will notice that and change to the emergency operation mode. The emergency mode will be displayed by the check control message “engine malfunction”. The driver may notice a rough running engine and a reduced driving power (70%). However, an engine stalling during driving conditions cannot be excluded. FIX: On the affected vehicles the crankshaft sensor will be replaced with a new version.
