BMW X2 VS Volvo XC40
Pint-size luxury and funky style -- does BMW or Volvo do it best?
A strong powerplant and snappy transmission give the X2 a bit of verve. Plenty of room for front passengers.
Love-it-or-leave-it design ethos. Driving aids are pricey and Apple CarPlay is a $300 option.
It's tough to recommend the X2 when it's smaller than the X1, costs more and doesn't offer any noticeably better driving dynamics.
It’s fun to look at and lovely to drive. It’s everything we love about the larger XC60 in a smaller package.
Sensus infotainment continues to be a buggy experience. Fuel economy is pretty dismal for a small SUV, as well.
The compact Volvo XC40 genuinely feels premium. And with its Care by Volvo subscription service, might attract a new set of owners.
