[YesAuto Purchase Manual] In February of this year, I tested BMW's new compact SUV-X2 in Portugal. I didn’t expect this car to officially enter the domestic market after only four months. This is really fast. . Just before the start of the Chengdu Auto Show, let's take a look at which of the 5 models launched by the BMW X2 is more cost-effective.
Let's take a look at the price first. The price of the officially listed BMW X2 ranges from 289,800 to 379,800, and the entire price span is close to 100,000. Let's take a look at the difference in power. The entry-level 20i is equipped with a 1.5T three-cylinder engine, the 25i model is equipped with a 192-horsepower 2.0T four-cylinder engine, and the top xDrive 25i also adds a four-wheel drive system.
In terms of body color, the BMW X2 provides a total of 8 choices. For a compact SUV that focuses on young people, the diversification of color choices is also a must.
In terms of interior trim, the 20i and 25i leading models use high-gloss black decorative panels, while other configuration models use aluminum decorative parts, and there are texture treatments on the surface, which are higher from the perspective of craftsmanship and cost. In addition, the manufacturer also provides some options, more to highlight the distinctive features of this car.
The decorative parts of the interior are different, and the materials of the seat and the use of stitching can also be selected by one's own preferences. Looking at the standard configuration first, the 20i and 25i leading models are made of all-black Sensatec synthetic leather. Starting from the 25i luxury model, they all use the Hexagon fabric/Alcantara material combination, dark gray with yellow stitching.
In terms of options, you can choose one of the five options at a cost of 12,900 yuan. The five options are: Dakota porous leather, lava red with gray stitching; Dakota porous leather, Mocha ribbon with walnut brown stitching; Dakota porous leather, pearl oyster white with gray stitching; Dakota porous leather, black with gray stitching; Dakota porous leather, black with blue stitching. Among them, the last option is only the 25i leading type, which means that this car has 4 options.
In terms of rims, the BMW X2 offers 3 styles according to different models. In addition, a 19-inch rim can be selected for low-end and second-rate models, and the price is 4,600 yuan. However, I think the 18-inch wheels equipped with low-profile models are already very coordinated for the BMW X2. The 19-inch wheels are indeed better, but the cost of use in the future must also be taken into consideration.
Having seen the introduction of various appearances and interiors of the BMW X2, let's take a look at the highlights of each configuration model.
Although the sDrive20i is the lowest configuration of the BMW X2, it still has many highlights in terms of configuration performance. Full LED headlights, panoramic sunroof, 8.8-inch multimedia display, and even 18-inch wheels are all standard equipment. For such a model with SUV attributes, these equipment make it show the difference from ordinary SUV. As an entry-level model, I think it is still competitive among models of the same level and type.
As a model that focuses on the young market, it is necessary to have some comfort configurations. Especially for this kind of car, I think the proportion of female consumers will become higher and higher. For such a consumer group, The demand for electric trunks, electric seats, and dual-zone air-conditioning tends to be much higher. In addition, the 25i leading model has an increased price of 40,000 yuan, and you can also get a more powerful engine. Although the price has increased a little, the configuration and power in exchange are also worthwhile.
Compared with the 25i leading model, I think the 25i luxury model is more about improving some comfort and personality. The BMW M sports steering wheel is undoubtedly the most attractive to me. As for the 19-inch wheels and Harman Caton The sound, for daily use, does not improve so much. From a cost-effective point of view, it is not as good as the 25i leading type mentioned earlier.
Speaking of the 25i premium type, let's first explain the collision defense assist, which uses the camera to identify the situation ahead, and will intervene in the braking of the vehicle in emergencies to slow down or avoid accidents. In addition, the 25i premium model also comes with keyless entry and trunk sensing. It is also cost-effective to exchange these two configurations for 10,000 yuan, after all, it also improves some daily safety and convenience.
Compared with the sDrive25i premium model, the price of xDrive25i has increased by 20,000 yuan. In fact, when looking at the 25i premium model, I think the cost of 10,000 yuan is still in the past. However, after reading xDrive25i, I think it is still It is more worthwhile to directly choose this top configuration. Compared with the 25i premium model, it has added front seat heating, four-wheel drive system, navigation, wireless CarPlay, etc., so if you can accept the 25i premium model, I think it is more cost-effective to directly choose this top model.
It's the last recommendation link. From the perspective of cost performance, my most recommended is the sDrive25i leading M off-road package.

The reason why this car is recommended is that its performance is more practical in terms of price and configuration. Compared with the lowest configuration, most of the configurations can bring higher convenience to daily use, and can satisfy most of them. People's demand for this car. Of course, for those who pay attention to this car, it has all the highlights, so it is also a relatively high cost-effective model in the entire car series.

I seldom recommend everyone to buy the top gear, but after seeing the difference between the BMW X2 top gear and the second top gear, you will find that the cost of the 20,000 yuan difference is quite worth it. Upgraded to four-wheel drive, the configuration has also added a lot of current leading technologies, so if the budget is relatively sufficient and a more personalized model is needed, the BMW X2 top configuration is worth considering.
BMW X2 and BMW X1 have completely different positioning. Of course, compared to its rival Mercedes-Benz GLA, its import identity is also a highlight. Of course, as for the price, it is actually not more expensive than Mercedes-Benz GLA, but there are some models. The overall configuration performance is still to be richer. As a new model joining the BMW X series camp, its young attributes are very prominent. If you want to buy such a young sporty crossover model, the BMW X2 still fits the needs of this part of the consumer group.
At the Chengdu Auto Show that will start next week, the BMW X2 will also come to the scene. Friends who are interested can pay attention to it.
