2020 BMW X2 vs. 2021 Ford Explorer

 

BMW and Ford are two of the renowned car brands in the industry popular for its wide selection of vehicles on offer. Two of them include the 2021 Ford Explorer and the 2020 BMW X2. In this post, we are going to compare these and understand which one is an ideal choice.

Design & Style

The 2021 Ford Explorer comes with a standard configuration to seat up to 6 people, with the rear seat including the captain’s chair in the middle row. The interior is well-constructed, but not well-designed, unlike other rivals. The base model looks plain and outdated.

Speaking of the 2020 BMW X2, it comes with sufficient space across the two rows, and you have plenty of seating amenities as standard. The overall build quality feels sturdy enough, with some high-quality surfaces outlining the perimeter. The metallic accents give a superfluous look.

Technology & Safety

The 2021 Ford Explorer comes with an 8-inch screen display, and it splits into Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. It looks to be a great layout, but not as user-friendly as other rival interfaces. Furthermore, the larger screen cuts down on the storage space beneath the display. Most of the tech features are optional here, while the advanced safety system includes the Co-Pilot 360 package. It contains forward automatic emergency braking, post-collision braking, automatic high-beam headlights, rearview camera, lane keep assist, rear cross traffic alert and blind spot monitoring.

For the 2020 BMW X2, there are plenty of technology features, including the highly appreciated iDrive infotainment system. Some other key features include USB port, Bluetooth, seven speakers, HD radio and navigation. There are plenty of ways to access the controls, and one can do so, without distraction. Some of the driver assistance features include automatic high-beam headlights, lane departure warning, automatic emergency braking and forward collision warning.

Performance

The 2021 Ford Explorer comes equipped with a base turbo-four engine. It does not feel as powerful or athletic as other rivals and offers less-composed handling as well. If you are looking for a great combination of composed ride and high fuel efficiency, look no further than BMW X2, which is known for its sportier handling and alacrity to tackle corners.

The Bottom Line

The 2020 BMW X2 does a lot of things well. It offers plenty of standard features, a smoother ride, lots of cabin space and powerful engine options. Very few midsize SUVs can match up to the level of BMW X2. If you are going for the Ford Explorer, you may have to overlook a lot of key features with a hefty price paid for it.
