Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the BMW X2, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler 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 Jeep Wrangler, 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). Whether you pick the BMW X2 or the Jeep Wrangler, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X2 is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler, 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 Jeep Wrangler.

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

Performance
The BMW X2 has a little less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X2 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X2 and the Jeep Wrangler. The BMW X2 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Jeep Wrangler.

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