Rugged X model profile fused with the sporting grace of a coupe.

The attractive, exciting, extrovert new BMW X2 will celebrate its market premiere in March 2018.

With a design oozing individuality from every pore and a sporty suspension set-up, the BMW X2 pushes back boundaries.

The X2 cuts a sublime figure from any angle. Its stance on the road recalls a finely-tuned athlete – and fuses the rugged profile typical of a BMW X model with the sporting grace of a coupe.

BMW TwinTurbo engines transfer these genes to the road in suitably dynamic style.

Three variants are available from launch; the BMW X2 sDrive20i petrol model with 141kW, plus the X2 xDrive20d diesel variant with 140kW, and the X2 xDrive25d diesel with 170kW.

Both diesel cars come as standard with xDrive intelligent allwheel drive and the eight-speed Steptronic transmission, while the petrol model is fitted with the sporty seven-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission.

Further models will be addedto the Sports Activity Coupe lineup in early 2018 – in the shape of the three-cylinder 103kW X2 sDrive18i, X2 sDrive18d and X2 xDrive18d with 110kW.

The sporty suspension of the X2 transfers the fine agility and dynamics of the drivetrain to the road.

The M Sport and M Sport X models come as standard with M Sport suspension with firmer spring and damper settings and a lowered ride height.

This feature is available as an option on the basic BMW X2.

The optional Dynamic Damper Control allows the suspension settings to be tailored even more closely.

Drivers can expect to find a top quality interior as per usual, and BMW Connected and BMW ConnectedDrive Services – both available as an option for the X2.

While also joining them on the options list, is the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display. The X2 also offers customers cutting-edge technologies when it comes to driver assistance systems.

The optional Parking Assistant is likewise designed to make life easier, automatically identifying suitable parking spaces and, if desired, taking over steering duties for the parking manoeuvre.
