I'm actually quite a fan of the X2. I've tested in both 28 and M35 trims and found it to drive really well, and feel quite peppy, almost like a tall hot hatch, and really like the looks, even with it having a "disgraced" MINI FWD platform.

Despite this though, its too pricey, so if you want a hot hatch buy a GTI, if you want an SUV, buy the X1, thats where the problem is with the X2.

I've seen more loaner badged X2's as well as CarMax/used X2's than actual X2's that have owners. I can definitely see why its on BMW's list of cars that may end production after this generation.
