BMW iX2 review

£51,560 - £61,660
Published: 15 Mar 2024


What is it like on the inside?

If you’ve seen the inside of an iX1 then everything here will be remarkably familiar. The interior design is inspired by the fancy iX so you get a floating centre console with storage space underneath, although it would actually be more practical to have a proper bin in there if we’re honest.

Looks nice though, and that form over function theme continues with the giant ‘Live Cockpit Plus system’ which pairs a 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster with a 10.7-inch touchscreen to create one giant panel on top of the dash. The dial display is clear and easy to adjust with the buttons on the steering wheel, but the infotainment screen is too busy and doesn’t offer proper shortcuts for things like the climate controls. It also requires a decent lean forward to reach, and the shortcuts for things like the nav and connected phone are slow to react.

You do get comfortable sports seats as standard though, plus a leather steering wheel, cruise control, four USB-C ports and a rear-view camera. The latter is a necessity as visibility out of the raked rear screen is less than impressive. It does feel a little cramped and dark in the rear seats too.

There’s a very decent 525 litres of boot space out back, but if it’s practicality you’re after then the Skoda Enyaq Coupe offers 570 litres and more space inside for passengers.
