Is it a really compact SUV or a too tall hatchback? Either way, the 2018 BMW X2 looks fantastically well suited for urban American cities.

The premium crossover is pretty small for an SUV, sitting 3 inches shorter and 3 inches lower than the X1.

Though based on a front-wheel-drive platform, the new X2 will come standard with all wheels driven.

The scale of the X2 feels more "hatchback" than "SUV," but BMW's betting that active urbanites will be more drawn to the latter.

Inside, the cabin is pretty standard fare BMW, which means premium materials and smart design.
