Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW X2 offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Volvo XC40, with comparable head- and legroom. The BMW X2 offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Volvo XC40, making it a little more comfortable for the driver and front passenger.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW X2 as you will with the Volvo XC40, 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 Volvo XC40, 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. Both the BMW X2 and the Volvo XC40 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW X2 is much slimmer than the Volvo XC40, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW X2 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Volvo XC40.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the BMW X2 transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Volvo XC40.

Handling
The BMW X2 has the same turning radius as the Volvo XC40, so they both maneuver the same in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW X2 has a little more horsepower than the Volvo XC40.

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the BMW X2 and the Volvo XC40. The BMW X2 has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Volvo XC40.

Warranty
The BMW X2 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Volvo XC40.
