Despite the fact that there is a special edition for this final production year, which comprises the GoldPlay appearance package, the BMW X2 is available only in sDrive28i and xDrive28i variations. These are both powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 228 hp and 258 lb-ft for either the rear wheels, or all four. An eight-speed automatic does duty.
Standard features are the same across the lineup, including 18-inch wheels, SensaTec upholstery, a power tailgate, push-button start, and automatic dual-zone climate control. Safety features include dynamic cruise control, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, park distance control for the front and rear, and speed limit information. An 8.8-inch touchscreen is the standard hub for infotainment and features Apple CarPlay and Android Auto integration. A seven-speaker sound system is the standard fare.
The BMW X2 range starts off with sDrive28i with an MSRP of $36,600, which is more expensive than the base price of the XC40, but considerably more affordable than the Evoque. The xDrive28i has a starting price of $38,600. None of these prices include BMW's $995 destination fee.
BMW offers a few additional packages and standalone extras for the X2. For 28i models, the M Sport X package costs $4,400 and adds 19-inch M wheels, an M steering wheel and blacked-out exterior Shadowline trim elements. The $2,250 Convenience Package adds a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry, lumbar support, power-folding mirrors, auto-dimming mirrors inside and out, and an interior and exterior lights package. The Premium Package costs even more at $3,650 and adds all the features from the Convenience Package with the addition of heated front seats, a head-up display, Navigation System Plus with a larger 10.25-inch display, and a heated steering wheel.
If you aren't truly going to put the added power from the M35i to use, we'd recommend opting for the xDrive28i and adding the M Sport X package. But it's worth noting that the addition of the package alone hikes the price up to $43,000. Still, you're getting a nearly fully-loaded crossover when you opt for the addition of the M Sport X Package that vastly improves the exterior appearance with 19-inch wheels and the Shadowline exterior trim.
