    Driven: BMW X2 xDrive20D by Mieke Oelofsen​

    Overview

    The “Golden Child” of BMW strutting the line between less space and slicker looks.

    Exterior

    It’s distinctly precise with a tilt towards the extrovert in the up-and-coming marketing executive. Overtures from the CS coupes of the 60’s and 70’s add to its allure

    Interior

    No prizes for guessing that ambient lighting, Alacantra stitching and honeycomb carbon fiber can place you directly in an A380’s business class arrangement. Well, almost.

    Performance

    It’s an MSport X Model which translates to adequately impressive, but no standing starts with cars that produce more than 150kW

    Owning

    In this economy, no Einsteinian brain synapses need to fire in order for the diesel version to be the only logical choice.

    Summary

    As roads worsen and spending shrinks, many newly appointed executives need to streamline their budgets and their garages. Like superbikes, the days of purely specialized sports cars are numbered. The bourgeoisie will still collect and display, but for the practical entrepreneur, the families assets will be consolidated under a skinny umbrella of perhaps two vehicles, the practical SUV and the performance SUV; cars like the X2 can easily fill that gap while maintaining and disrupting the status quo at the same time.
