Also, you seemed to have done quite a bit of rounding. The X2 seems to start at around $45-$46k. The R starts at around $40k last time I checked.
I think his argument was based on other factors - such as fun to drive, which the GTI is known for, plus impressive utility in a small package, also a traditional GTI trait.

Arguably, you can get more fun and similar/better utility for a much lower price. But that's just a guess.
