What sort of lease deals are people getting on X2s these days? I’m looking at the sport line and the enhanced premium package, smartphone connectivity and headlight washers.. Looking at Unhaggle, it’s showing MSRP of 55715 and a dealer cost of 51975 including a 1000$ dealer incentive and all fees except taxes.
Lease term would be 36 to 28 months and 20K KMs\year.
I see on the thread that 6 to 6.5% is the minimum discount on these cars, how likely is it to get more? I’m at the east end of town close to Endras.

Thanks in advance.


Cheers,

You should start with 7% + the $1000 incentive !!! Be reminded to check the dealer quote to ensure they don't include those unnecessary charge... like protection package !

Assume 7% dealer side discount
$0 down
Est. $3,100 fees (incl. full tank of gas) rolled into payment. No added bogus fees and items assumed
No EWT selected

Projected payment :
36 months - $640 + taxes
48 months - $578 + taxes
Due on delivery - first + security + license admin fee + ppsa + new license plate & sticker (if applicable)

****

2018 X2 - configured with your options. MSRP - $51,800

20,000km per year
2.9% rate
$1000 factory credit
Assume 7% dealer side discount
$0 down
Est. $3,100 fees (incl. full tank of gas) rolled into payment. No added bogus fees and items assumed
No EWT selected

Projected payment :
36 months - $659 + taxes
48 months - $600 + taxes

X1 and X2 are pretty well the same car per se. Why not go for the one that cost less and save some $ over the term.

As a reminder to all rfders who would like to lease, BMWFS is still doing the MSD (Multiple Security deposit) of up to 9 deposits in which the objective is to lower the interest rate. I don't know what is the rate reduction of each SD made, for this, you will have to ask the dealer.

That was fast,

Many thanks! The only reason why I was considering the X2 was for the looks - the X1 does seem to be slightly more practical and cheaper. This is a great starting point for negotiations - thanks again!
Edit: is EWT worth the extra at all?

Cheers,

everyone is going to have a different POV on EWT. For $1400 + taxes ... it comes down to your budget.

Now that I've seen a number of X2's on the road I find that it's awkward looking from certain angles. It's also less practical than an X1 so if it were my money I'd opt for the X1 even if they were the same price. The X1 has also been out for longer so I imagine you can get a larger discount on them versus the X2.

^ for some reasons, I am getting a consensus that X2 is really a waste of effort by BMW. Hmm.

I have not even noticed/seen any X2 on my daily drive at all. Strange.

Saw one at Yonge and Wellington though - looked a bit bigger than X1

If I'm not mistaken the X2 is actually about 3 inches shorter than the X1 in both height and length, while width is the same.

Maybe the new badge tricked my brain - anyway it was just a 30 secs glance

I just handed back the X2 loaner today. I've now driven both the X1 and the X2 as loaners and I prefer the X2 because the X2 has a lower center of gravity. The X1 greenhouse is taller and you have better views but it gives me that uncomfortable tippy feeling. The downside is that the rear window in the X2 is small and the back seat headrests take some of the rear window view away. If they make an M version of the X2 then I'd be all over that but for the time being I'd settle for the regular X2. Now just wondering whether to sell my E90 and lease or buy....

I see a X2 regularly, and while it does look awkward from certain angles, it surely looks much sportier and more aggressive than X1.
I would imagine the interior and the driving dynamics are better than X1, hence the price difference.
Even numbers are for people who don't care much about space, anyway.

I think it also depends on your height and size.

I test drive X1 and felt that me any wife are sitting too close to each other. The gap between the driver and the passenger seat is too narrow. Height was not bad but felt bit low. I am 6 feet tall by the way.

This is the reason we decided to buy X3 as it was very roomy and wide. Also, the headroom is very good.

X2 is more like a hatchback. If height and room is not the concern, I think X2 might be more fun to drive than X1. But if you need room and practicality then X1 is better than X2.

Just curious how is it (X3) around the corners?
