2018 BMW X2: The kinda-sorta coupeover

While BMW claims the X2 is a coupe version of the X1 subcompact crossover, it really looks more like a tall wagon.

This is the 2018 BMW X2. The German automaker calls it a "Sports Activity Coupe."

I've always subscribed to the notion that a coupe has a sloping roofline and two doors. The X2 has none of that.

What it does have is a lower stance and shorter overall length than the X1.

And badges. There are many, many badges on this bad boy.

An available panoramic roof keeps the cabin open and airy, but taller folks may still be cramped in the rear seat.
