Serving Greenville

As evidenced by the fact that it is rated among the top five off all small luxury SUVs, the BMW X2 is a popular SUV. In 2019, the sporty X2 arrives with more performance capabilities than before. This year, the X2 also gets an amendment to its infotainment system, which includes Apple CarPlay and navigation now standard on the base trim. The latest X2 follows on the heels of the all-new X2 that was launched in 2018. The X2 is part of BMW's popular “X” series of SUVs, which includes several other attractive models as well. Along with its sporty handling, looks, and capabilities, the X2 stands out for its high-quality materials and design. The X3 is another one of BMW's popular SUVs. The X3 does not have many new and notable changes in 2019, as it was launched with a refreshed design in 2018. Its engines are powerful and fuel-efficient, and it comes with a number of standard and available amenities. The X3 stands out for its spacious interior and plenty of room for passengers.

Performance

Performance is an area where both the X2 and the X3 excel. The base engine in the 2019 BMW X2 is a 2.0L, four-cylinder engine with a power capacity of 228 HP at 5,000 RPM. The second engine, which powers the top trim level, is also a 2.0L, four-cylinder engine. This one has a greater power output of 302 HP at 5,000 RPM. Equipped with the top-level engine, the X2 can accelerate from 0-60 MPH in an impressive 4.9 seconds. Both types of engines are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The X3 also has two engines. The base is a turbocharged 2.0L, four-cylinder that generates 248 HP at 5,200 RPM. The second is a larger 3.0L with six cylinders and a power output of 355 HP at 5,500 RPM. An eight-speed automatic transmission is also standard on the 2019 X3.

Appearance

If you're searching for a good-looking SUV in 2019, both the X2 and the X3 are good choices. Alloy wheels, which are available in sizes up to 20 inches, give the X2 a striking appearance. Sporty brakes add to its visual appeal and also provide extra stopping power. A coupe-like roofline, C-shaped lights, and chrome accents in the front end add to the X2's impressive appearance package. The equally appealing 2019 X3 is accentuated by elegant curves and a muscular stance. Rocker panels, a signature BMW grille, and a variety of custom wheel options provide infinite opportunities for giving your X3 a custom finish. Some features and amenities vary based on trim level.

Features

The 2019 X2 comes with more standard technology than before, including a limited subscription to Apple CarPlay and an infotainment display screen with navigation. The 2019 X2 features a high-tech infotainment system that supports smartphone pairing as well. The standard infotainment screen is an 8.8-inch screen, which can be upgraded to a 12.3-inch screen for optimal visibility. The screen can be controlled by touch or voice commands.

A backup camera and parking distance indicators are other notable features.
