Parkers overall rating: 4.3 out of 5 4.3
  • Less roomy than a BMW X1 but not bad
  • Rear doors open wide but low roof hampers access
  • Lack of glass makes the rear quite dark at times

Rear passenger space is hampered a bit by the sloping roof - once you’re in it’s ok, but the high floor and low ceiling makes getting in and out a bit tricky if you’re tall. Space in the middle pew is also restricted despite a relatively low transmission tunnel, so you’ll want to avoid forcing anyone of lofty proportions into that position.

As you’d expect from the narrow windows, visibility out and back isn’t great, with chunky b-pillars hampering the over the shoulder view and an obscured rear three quarters that necessitates the addition of a reversing camera, or at least use of the standard rear parking sensors.

Will it fit in my garage?

The BMW X2 is lower and shorter than the X1 upon which it is based, despite sharing the same wheelbase and track. While that means it’s a bit more agile, this is still quite a large car, and makes its size known on narrow roads and winding city streets.

Will my luggage fit?

BMW X2 boot space

There’s a 12-volt power socket in there, plus underfloor stowage, a storage net and four lashing eyes to help keep things in place. In terms of its rivals the X2 fares well, although the Jaguar E-Pace features a large luggage compartment.

Euro NCAP provides motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe.
