Finally, we get to see the brand new BMW X2 – sportier, more aggressive and more stylish. Definitely a charmer and looker for the young enthusiasts.
Three trim levels will be available: Basic (the basic model), M Sport (much like any M Sport BMW) and M Sport X (brings accents from both M Sport and X Line trims).
“The BMW X2 represents an expression of modern and extrovert vehicle dynamics,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design, in describing the new BMW X2. “Its standalone vehicle concept brings a new, fresh and exciting facet of the BMW to the compact segment.”
“The BMW X2 fuses the fast-moving forms of a coupe with the robust volumes of an X model,” sums up Thomas Sycha, Head of Design BMW Compact Class. “It was important to us to make these apparently conflicting aspects of the BMW X2 and the car’s individual character something you experience from every angle and at first glance.”
Powering the BMW X2 will be the typical suite of small four-cylinder engines, both petrol and diesel. Transmission options will be either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Though, the one to have is the BMW X2 xDrive20i, as it comes with the most potent of petrol engines — a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 192 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque, with only the DCT gearbox available. BMW claims it can get from 0-60 mph in 7.7 seconds.
BMW X2 will arrive in 2018, available in five configurations: BMW X2 xDrive18i, xDrive20i, xDrive20d and xDrive25d.
