Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport than in the BMW X2, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW X2, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
The BMW X2 requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport. 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 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X2 is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport, 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 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

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

Performance
The BMW X2 has a little less horsepower than the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

Powertrain
With its lower torque engine, the BMW X2 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.

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

Warranty
The BMW X2 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport.
