Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Traverse than in the BMW X2, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Chevrolet Traverse will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the BMW X2.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X2 as you will with the Chevrolet Traverse, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW X2 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Traverse. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW X2 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X2 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Traverse, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW X2, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Traverse.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X2 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Traverse.

Handling
The BMW X2 has a smaller turning radius than the Chevrolet Traverse, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW X2 has a lot less horsepower than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the BMW X2 seats a lot fewer people than the Chevrolet Traverse. The BMW X2 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Chevrolet Traverse.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW X2 than that of the Chevrolet Traverse.
