I just think for the money, a GTI/Golf R could provide more thrills with similar practicality for less, or a regular SUV would provide better utility for the same price, hell even a 4GC could be equipped for a similar price but provide RWD and still decent utility.

The X2 is just one of those cars where its the answer to a question no one asked.
Did you compare the VW Arteon when you bought/leased your CLS?
I understand you think its weird that I'm comparing a VW to the x2 its just that when I think of the X2, I think of it just as a tall hot hatch than really an SUV, so I just think, if you want performance and handling, and you're giving up the cargo space of a real SUV for something small and almost hatch-like, a GTI/R could be offer a similar experience for less.
