The BMW iX2 is a groundbreaking new electric vehicle from a company known for its premium approach to motoring.

Built as a coupe-styled SUV that rides on the same platform as the more affordable iX1, the iX2 promises a no-compromises approach to battery-electric motoring thanks to its long features list, clever technology package and powerful electric motor lineup.

With manufacturers racing to add small, battery-electric SUVs to their lineup, the iX2 has plenty of competitors, meaning it needs to impress to win over buyers here in Australia.

Just how well does the iX2 stack up against its rivals? Let’s take a closer look to find out.

BMW iX2 Technology & Infotainment Features

On the tech front, the BMW iX2 comes packing a 10.7-inch digital instrument cluster, a 10.25-inch infotainment system with wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, a head-up display, a surround-view monitor with parking sensors, BMW Iconic Sounds and BMW’s Personal Assistant.

BMW’s Enhancement optional accessories package adds $3,615 to the price tag while adding features like a panoramic sunroof, a heated steering wheel, massaging front seats with lumbar support, metallic paint and an upgraded Harman/Kardon sound system.

Does the BMW iX2 Have Wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto?

BMW’s latest operating system powering the 10.7-inch infotainment system does indeed offer wireless smartphone connectivity for both Apple CarPlay & Android Auto.

BMW iX2 Range Features:

  • 19-inch alloys

  • Adaptive LED headlights 

  • Adaptive M Sport suspension 

  • M Sport styling enhancements 

  • Veganza leather-free upholstery 

  • Powered boot lift 

  • Adaptive cruise control 

  • 10.7-inch digital instrument cluster 

  • 10.25-inch infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay & Android Auto 

  • Surround-view monitor with parking sensors 

  • Head-up display 

  • 12-month Chargefox fast-charging subscription

What Engine Powers the BMW iX2?

BMW’s iX2 range comes with two motor options.

The base model iX2 eDrive20 receives a single electric motor mounted at the front axle that pushes out 150kW of power and 247Nm of torque.

Stepping up to the iX2 xDrive30 throws an additional motor over the rear axle that produces a combined 230kW of power and 494Nm of torque, as well as the added benefit of an all-wheel drive system.

Both the iX2 eDrive20 and xDrive30 variants are powered by the same 67kWh battery pack.

Is the BMW iX2 Energy Efficient?

BMW is yet to confirm energy efficiency ratings for its single-motor eDrive20 entry-point into the iX2 range.

We do, however, know that the iX2 xDrive30 is rated at between 16.3 - 17.7kWh/100km on a combined WLTP test cycle.

This gives the iX2 xDrive30 range figures of 449km on a single charge, while the battery pack itself can be DC fast-charged at speeds of 130kW, or at 22kW with a suitable wall box.

Is it Practical and Spacious?

Compared to the previous generation X2, the iX2 measures in at a hefty 194mm longer than its predecessor, which has resulted in a noticeable increase in second-row accommodation.

The longer wheelbase has allowed BMW to expand legroom in the second row of the cabin, making it a more spacious affair, though headroom is still limited for taller rear occupants due to the sloping roofline’s design.

Having said that, the front of the iX2’s cabin remains super spacious and particularly attractive thanks to BMW’s latest generation cabins.

Things look familiar, albeit with a more futuristic twist thanks to the large displays in front of the driver and atop the dash that are paired seamlessly together.

Storage options in the front of the iX2’s cabin are plentiful, with a large storage tray sitting at the base of the dash, and a pair of cupholders flanked by a floating armrest with an additional layer of storage underneath.

It’s one of the most practical cabin layouts we’ve seen from BMW and shows that the company’s designers have maximised every bit of space from the new electric vehicle architecture.

How Big is the BMW iX2’s Boot?

While it’s technically classed as a compact SUV, the BMW iX2 features a large boot that measures 560L, expanding to 1400L with the second row folded.

This means that while competing in a smaller segment, the iX2 offers boot volumes that rival, if not better the figures of a large number of midsize SUVs, making it exceptionally practical in this respect.

Is it Safe?

The BMW iX2 has a safety equipment list that matches its futuristic styling and modern architecture underneath.

The company is yet to confirm what safety equipment will be bundled in with the entry-level iX2 eDrive20, though we do know what its dual-motor sibling, the iX2 xDrive30 will receive as standard.

The list includes adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking with a steering and lane control assistant, blind-spot monitoring, a reversing assistant, a surround-view monitor with parking sensors and a drive recorder.

Does the BMW iX2 Have an ANCAP Safety Rating?

The BMW iX2 is yet to be officially tested by ANCAP, though its twin-under-the-skin, the BMW X1 received a five-star ANCAP safety rating after testing in 2022.

In those tests, the X1 scored the following marks.

  • Adult Occupant Protection: 86% 

  • Child Occupant Protection: 88% 

  • Vulnerable Road User Protection: 76% 

  • Safety Assist: 94%

What Warranty Does the BMW iX2 Come With?

BMW packages the iX2 range with a five-year/unlimited-kilometre warranty.

The iX2’s battery and high-voltage components are covered by an eight-year/160,000km warranty.

Our Verdict: Is the BMW iX2 Worth it?

BMW’s first wave of battery-electric vehicles has been impressive, to say the least, which is why we anticipate the iX2 will be a strong performer within the battery-electric compact SUV segment.

While its competition is thick, BMW has found a way to retain an impressive amount of its sporty DNA and premium nature as it moves into the future which will come as good news for buyers looking to make the plunge to the world of premium, battery-electric motoring.
