Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Kia Telluride than in the BMW X2, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the BMW X2 and the Kia Telluride.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X2 as you will with the Kia Telluride, 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 Kia Telluride, 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 Kia Telluride.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X2 is much slimmer than the Kia Telluride, 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 Kia Telluride.

Handling
The BMW X2 has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Telluride, 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 Kia Telluride.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the BMW X2 and the Kia Telluride are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

Utility
The BMW X2 has less seating than the Kia Telluride, making the Kia Telluride the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The BMW X2 has significantly less cargo capacity than the Kia Telluride.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW X2 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Telluride.
