Considering an X2

Post by tonywalk » Wed May 23, 2018 11:50 pm

Hi folks,

Been away from the forum for a while - thought it might have sprouted X1 and X2 sections as the Active Tourer is accomodated. However.....

I'm thinking of an X2 as my next car. My PCP is due up in 4 months so am exploring my options.

Has anyone had any experience of the X2 whether it be a test drive or even owning one :) The forum doesn't allow for a search of "X2".

Regards,
Tony.

No real experience of them other than having a nose when in the dealers last. Personally, it's not for me, but I can see why they may appeal.

The thing that stood out for me though was the cost!! I'm sure there are mighty discounts to be had, but the one in the showroom was a 2.0 petrol and with a few options was £40k! That seems crazy money for something like that.

Currently £2500 deposit contribution and 3.9% APR on PCP. Probably equates to around 8% off.

No experience per say but if it’s anything like the x1 then it will be a decent motor, I’ve only driven my sisters x1 xline and was very comfy with enough rest space.

The thing that stopped her getting the x2 was the price. Very expensive for what it is.

Spoke to a mate yesterday who works as a BMW tech. He said they go really well and handle like a dream. My issue is no x-drive with the petrol motor at the moment! Why?

You should consider the Volvo XC40 voted the 2018 European car of the year not just SUV and it has 4WD and the petrol variant T5 pumps out 250 hp

I think the X2 is a great small family car and with 400nm it shifts when you want it too. It’s a nice drive when you realise how refined and well put together it is. If you are near London I’d be happy to loan you one for 24 hours.

I’d be looking at an x3 over the x2. I
Found the cabin quite small when I had a drive - but it depends on your needs.

I did, then I looked at the reviews which said it was "numb" to drive. Might still have a test drive though as reviewers can be notoriously biased aginst certain brands.

Cheers Jamie, unfortunately up near Manchester. Hopefully getting a 24hr loan in the next weeks or so.

Think that’s fairly standard with Volvo tbh.

I saw one at goodwood for - seemed very flimsy.. The door shut wasn't a typical german clunk more a flimsy bit of plastic. The quality of the materials seemed very cheap imo. I would certainly have a look at one first and then decide..
