Search new BMW X2 listings on CarGurus: https://cargur.us/mYWlQ BMW’s new X2 compact crossover packs loads of style, combining historical design touches with some new twists. The round logos on each C-pillar recall BMW’s sporty coupes of the 1960s and ‘70s, while the X2’s trapezoidal twin-kidney grille with slats bending inward is a first for the brand. The new car costs more and fits a little less than the X1 but looks and drives better and offers version 6.0 of BMW’s iDrive infotainment system. Support for Apple CarPlay is available, but costs $300. All X2s get the same engine, a turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder also used in the X1, and pair it with an 8-speed automatic to deliver 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque. Power will get delivered to all four wheels in xDrive versions or only the front wheels in sDrives. Our reviewer wished the transmission didn’t hesitate to upshift under full throttle but had lots of fun driving the X2 and appreciated the head-up display’s use of accurate intersection graphics instead of generic ones.

2018 BMW X3 A popular crossover becomes a more convincing BMW. Buyers’ wild-eyed enthusiasm for compact-luxury SUVs has put the BMW X3 on a trajectory to overtake the X5 and ultimately the 3-series as the brand’s best seller. The model has undergone a redesign for 2018, which sees it get slightly larger—not surprising given that the X1 is on hand, soon to be joined by the new X2, for buyers seeking something smaller. The X3 also becomes a more full-fledged member of the BMW family with its upgraded interior. And at a time when some of the brand’s passenger-car offerings have strayed from BMW’s historically strong dynamics, the new X3 makes an encouraging showing there as well. Highs Chassis tuning like BMWs of old, improved interior, plenty of passenger and cargo space. Lows Imprecise variable-ratio steering, goofy electronic shifter, the entry-level four pales next to the six-cylinder. Tighten Up As before, the X3 is offered with four or six cylinders under the hood, both engines bolstered by a turbocharger. Their configuration and displacement are the same, but both engines are new to the model. Although the 30i designation suggests that BMW’s 3.0-liter inline-six is present, it actually has a 2.0-liter inline-four. (The 28i was the previous four-cylinder X3). The six-cylinder version has been elevated to M Performance status and is now badged X3 M40i. Both models come with an eight-speed automatic and all-wheel drive. The new 2.0-liter sees horsepower increase from 240 to 248, while the torque peak falls slightly, from 260 lb-ft to 258. The B46 powerplant’s output is nothing extraordinary, but the twin-scroll turbo effectively masks any signs of lag, making for precise and predictable throttle response. This engine punches above its weight in other applications (330i, 530i), but here it feels a tad overmatched. There’s nothing to criticize in the nature of its power delivery or its pairing with the eight-speed, but it’s a far cry from the M40i’s silken and muscular inline-six, which boasts 355 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. BMW’s turbo six is an engine from the gods, and the M40i feels as quick as a Porsche Macan GTS. With either engine, the eight-speed automatic, unfortunately, is controlled via BMW’s annoying and unintuitive electronic shifter that is spreading throughout the lineup. We can’t fault the transmission’s behavior, though, which is smooth and responsive. Plus, standard paddle shifters are on hand should the driver want to take control. The X3 30i earns EPA fuel-economy ratings of 22 mpg city and 29 highway, both increases of 1 mpg over the outgoing X3 28i. The city number falls between those of the Audi Q5 (23 mpg) and the all-wheel-drive Mercedes-Benz GLC300 (21 mpg), while the BMW’s highway figure tops both competitors’. The six-cylinder X3 M40i also manages increases of 1 mpg over its predecessor in both EPA measures, with ratings of 20/27 mpg city/highway. More encouragingly, the X3 chassis suffers none of the float or sloppiness that plagues much of the recent BMW lineup. The 30i we drove was fitted with the Dynamic Handling package ($1400), which brought adaptive dampers, Variable Sport Steering, M Sport brakes, and a fourth driving mode—Adaptive—in addition to Eco Pro, Sport, and the default Comfort. Even Comfort mode doesn’t have the wallow we’ve seen in BMWs of late; the X3 is plenty capable in corners. Sport tightens the reins noticeably, which is fine where the roads are glass smooth but might be too much when they’re not. The M40i starts out with a firmer suspension, and our example added the adaptive dampers (a stand-alone option that’s $1000 on the 30i and $700 on the M40i). The net result is that this is a rare modern BMW that doesn’t require you to switch it out of Comfort mode and into Sport the minute you turn it on. The M40i’s body control is exemplary, and even its standard Variable Sport Steering is not overboosted. The variable steering is optional on the X3 30i, however, and there we’d be inclined to skip it. In the lower-spec model, it fails to build effort as you wind on more lock, instead seeming to increase assist; switching to Sport mode increases overall effort, masking this behavior. Luxury and Practicality The X3’s starting price has increased by $2400, mostly because there’s no rear-drive version anymore. (Compared with the previous all-wheel-drive model, the new X3’s price sees a $400 increase.) The X3 30i opens at $43,445—versus $42,475 for the Q5 and $43,045 for the GLC 4Matic, its two most obvious competitors—whereas the X3 M40i starts at $55,295. The new X3 is a well-rounded performer, particularly the M40i, and it also is now a better ambassador for its brand. That’s a good thing, given its increasingly visible role https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/2018-bmw-x3-first-drive-reviewRead More "SUBSCRIBE NOW"

With the choice of conventional SUVs on the market already pretty saturated, this trio of brands is turning to the coupé-SUV niche – providing high-riding cars with more svelte designs to appeal to a younger audience. And that’s where BMW’s latest model, the X2, comes in.

Hey BMW fans! For this tour video, we have the privilege of checking out BMW's all new premier model for 2019, the brand new X2. This compact yet capable SUV offers storage and passenger space while at the same time maintaining a small and easy to maneuver stature. About Me! Hey Car fans and enthusiasts! My name is Elijah and I am EliYourCarGuy. Thanks for stopping by my channel! I am a car enthusiast and I have a deep love for cars. My passion has always been cars and that is what makes up my channel. I love filming anything to do with cars and posting it on here for everyone to see. On the channel you will find cars of many makes and models, ages new and old - Cars, Trucks, Vans, SUV's, and more. I post reviews, tours, test drives, how-to's and anything that is automotive related. I created EliYourCarGuy in April of 2012 and I had no intention of doing this full time. I grabbed my camera and went out in my driveway and filmed my father's car. After that I thought, hey, I'd like to try that again! I started out filming my family's cars, then I started going to car auctions and filming, then small buy here pay here dealerships and eventually grew to the point of filming at many dealerships of many different brands. I currently drive a 2017 Chevy Malibu and a 1999 GMC Sonoma. I have always been a GM fan. My grandfather worked for GM for 32 years and that is all I tend to drive. It kinda runs in my family. Seems like no matter what, there is always a Chevy in my driveway. Now, that being said... My personal favorite car is the Ford Mustang. I am a huge fan of the 2015 Redesigned model and I really like what Ford did for the 2018 Model. One of my goals is to own one someday. Life is like a never ending ladder and I look at my channel like that as well. We only have a limited amount of time on this earth and I am doing my best to get as high on the ladder as I can before my time is up. There will always be cars to film and I am gain for filming them! Join me in my journey as we check out the automotive industry one car at a time! - Eli Your Car Guy
