BMW X2 is slated to go on sale in March 2018 and will be the smallest crossover in the German brand's product portfolio. Aimed at young buyers, the X2 is based on the X1 and is shorter and lower than it. The newcomer looks remarkably similar to the Concept X2 that was showcased at 2016 Paris Motor Show. Following are some highlights of the new model.
A host of design details underscore the distinctive character of the BMW X2. These include the BMW roundel on the C-pillars and the styling of the kidney grille, whose outline is wider at its base than at its top for the first time on a modern BMW.
Three engine and transmission variants are offered: the BMW X2 xDrive20i petrol model with 192 hp, plus the X2 xDrive20d diesel variant with 190 hp and X2 xDrive25d diesel with 231 hp. Both diesel cars come as standard with xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive and the eight-speed Steptronic transmission. The petrol model is fitted with the sporty seven-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission.
The options list for the X2 includes the latest generation of BMW ConnectedDrive and the most recent update of the BMW Connected App. Optional functions such as Apple CarPlay and an array of driver assistance systems serve up a connected driving experience. Among the optional equipment features offered exclusively by the X2 in this segment is the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display.
Available for the first time on a BMW are the exterior colour shades Galvanic Gold metallic and Misano Blue metallic, plus perforated Dakota leather in Magma Red and the Micro Hexagon fabric Anthracite/Alcantara combination in Black with M piping and yellow contrast stitching.
BMW X2 will be available in three variants - Basic, M Sport and M Sport X. The X2 M Sport and M Sport X models bring together design elements from BMW M and the BMW X family.
