Arguably, you can get more fun and similar/better utility for a much lower price. But that's just a guess.
If cars were priced based on their "fun" factor, then Miatas would be far more expensive. BMW has to price their cars based on the equipment they put in them. I realize the X2 doesn't seem make much sense, but the price doesn't seem too crazy compared to comparable cars on the market. I'm sure there's a market for this car. Just look at cars like the GLA.
