BMW Malaysia has introduced the X2, the first ever Compact Sports Activity Coupe. Created to transform the Compact Premium segment, the all new model from BMW features unmistakable sporty, dynamic and urban design cues which leaves a confident impression both in its class and within the BMW X model family.
The BMW X2 is introduced in the BMW X2 sDrive20i M Sport variant. In looks, the X2 features short overhangs, to go with a stretched, coupe-style roofline and slim window graphic. The familiar signature kidney grille is a trademark: its outline is wider at its base than at its top. The BMW X2 is the first modern BMW to feature this design cue, and it gives the first-ever BMW X2 a broader, even more distinct and sporty appearance. Below the grille, the hexagonal surface treatment in the bumper further reinforces this impression. The kidney grille provides a visual expression of the BMW X2’s classy appeal. The front to the grille bars in High-Gloss Black contrast with the grille’s chrome surround.
Pertinent highlights include the new LED headlights, the BMW Individual High-Gloss Shadow line with the BMW emblem on the C-Pillars, wheel arch trim and claddings on doors in body color and a BMW M rear spoiler, as well as two-sided exhaust tailpipe in high-gloss chrome, roof rails in Aluminium Satinated and 19-inchers M light alloys and distinctive rear lights.
Interior-wise, the BMW X2 is similar to most models with the exception of LED ambient lighting with bold choices of Orange, Lilac, Mint, Bronze, Blue and White color settings. From multi-function buttons on the steering wheel to the exterior and interior mirrors with automatic anti-dazzle function, including fold-in function and its impressive level of equipment are both instantly apparent.
The first-ever BMW X2 offers a generous helping of everyday practicality. On top of the Comfort Access System with contactless opening of the tailgate, the luggage compartment has a capacity of 470 liters, and up to 1,355 litres with the 40/20/40 split folding down rear seat backrests.

Both front passenger and driver are treated to electric seat adjustment, with the addition of memory function for the driver.
In addition, there’s all kinds of Connectivity options such as Intelligent Emergency Call, Teleservices, Concierge Services, BMW Online and BMW Remote Services.
