The New BMW X2 breaks new ground for the Brand as a unique and exciting addition to the BMW X model range. The car’s chassis and xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system delivers the ideal balance between sporting dynamics and efficiency. At the same time, the digital services from BMW ConnectedDrive and BMW ConnectedDrive Services add further depth to the overall BMW X2 experience.
In looks, the BMW X2 is a more compact semblance of the X4 and X6. The car’s exterior design combines the low-slung proportions of a coupé with the robust core of a BMW X model. The BMW X2 is two centimeters shorter and more than 7cm lower than the BMW X1, yet has the same wheelbase. Featuring short overhangs, it also has a stretched, coupé-style roofline and slim window graphic.
Outstanding front traits of the X2 are the wider kidney grille, the hexagonal surface treatment in the bumper, high-gloss black grille with its chrome surround and Full-LED headlights (standard on the Sport, M Sport and M Sport X). Meantime, the M Sport and M Sport X variants are available with wheels in sizes up to 20-inch, a standout feature in this segment. As standard, both are fitted with 19-inch wheels, while 17-inchers are fitted on the Sport variant. Wheel designs as many as 10 options are available.
At the side, the skirts of the BMW X2 are among its signature features and contribute to its rugged good looks. The cladding is black on the SE and Sport models and Frozen Grey on the M Sport X. The C-pillars host two characteristic BMW features: the hallmark BMW Hofmeister kink and, for the first time on a BMW X model, the BMW roundel. From the rear, a spoiler provides a flourish to round off the BMW X2’s roofline and contributes to the BMW X2’s drag co-efficient of just 0.28. Together with the width-enhancing rear bumper, this creates a powerful rear view. The rear bumpers on the M Sport and M Sport X come in the vehicle color and matt black, as well as a diffuser in Dark Shadow metallic or contrast colour Frozen Grey (M Sport X). The LED lights contour and twin exhaust round off the unique rear end look oof the X2.
The cabin is driver-focused, with the design of features such as the instrument panel binnacle directed at the roaTd ahead. All controls are positioned to allow the driver to assimilate their information with a single glance and operate them with ease. The instrument panel has contrast stitching as standard, while the center console features materials including Sensatec also with contrast stitching. The interior of the M Sport model is trimmed in a Micro Hexagon fabric Anthracite/Alcantara combination, with the M Sport X adding leather upholstery as standard. Eye-catching highlights can be added by opting for the new perforated Dakota leather in Magma Red or the Micro Hexagon fabric Anthracite/Alcantara combination upholstery with yellow contrast stitching to match the Galvanic Gold metallic exterior paint shade.
The boot has a capacity of 470 liters with a functionality that manifests itself in the passenger compartment, thanks to features such as a door design featuring large storage pockets.
An optional lighting package within the Plus pack allows the driver to set a stylish lighting mood for the interior of the BMW X2 by choosing from the colours Orange, Lilac, Mint, Bronze, Blue and White. The LED lighting in the trim surfaces of the instrument panel and door panels forms a continuous band that extends all the way around the cabin to the rear.
One of the most distinctive options on the list is the panoramic roof, which adds to the sense of spaciousness inside the BMW X2. The front section of the panoramic roof tilts and slides open, just like a conventional sunroof.
At launch, the X2 xDrive20d diesel variant will be available. It generates maximum output of 190hp and 400Nm of torque enabling a zero to 62mph time of 7.7 seconds. Official fuel consumption is still highly impressive 61.4mpg, while CO2 emissions are as low as 121g/km*. Further attractive variants of the BMW X2 will be added to the Sports Activity Coupé’s line-up in early 2018.
The common denominator of all BMW X2 models is a chassis that transfers the core responsiveness of the BMW engines to the road. The car’s driving responses can be adapted by using the Driving Experience Control switch, allowing the driver to choose between default COMFORT mode, efficiency-enhancing ECO PRO mode and SPORT mode.
If the optional Dynamic Damper Control is specified, the car’s suspension can be adjusted even more precisely to individual requirements.
Lastly. the M Sport suspension fitted as standard on the BMW X2 M Sport and M Sport X is a particularly good match and includes tauter spring and damper tuning. BMW X2 M Sport and M Sport X models offer suspension which is 10mm lower than the standard suspension.
