BMW X2 SUV (2018 -) Costs

Review by Tim Pollard on
The onward march of the crossover shows no sign of abating, with the BMW X2 filling a gap within the German firm’s range that few appreciated even existed. BMW refers to the X2 as a Sports Activity Coupe, essentially a more rakish version of the popular X1 SUV aimed at those who are less likely to have outright practicality at the top of their priority list, although it does remain a five-door.

Running costs

  • Very reasonable across the board
  • sDrive18d the hero of the range
  • Popular xDrive20d a good all-rounder

In terms of claimed fuel economy the BMW X2’s running costs are much of a muchness – the sDrive18d is the best performer with 62.8mpg on offer, while the worst is the sDrive20i with 51.4mpg.

Pitched right down the middle is the projected best-selling xDrive20d – this claims 60.1mpg is possible, and is actually a more frugal unit than the less powerful all-wheel drive xDrive18d.

Emissions summary

BMW X2: will it be eco-friendly?

Following in the footsteps of the X2’s fuel economy is the amount of CO2 it produces in its various forms, whether petrol, diesel, two- or all-wheel drive.

The best car again is the sDrive18d, with 119g/km of CO2, while the best all-wheel drive model is the xDrive20d – its 124g/km bettering the lower powered xDrive18d’s 128g/km.

Petrol-powered sDrive20i cars are something of a middling effort, with 126g/km of CO2, making them a viable alternative to diesel for the ecologically minded.
