Camo wrap on a BMW X2

Looks like BMW is finally getting into some interesting reveals for even its not as fun models, the X2 being one of them. Surprisingly they didn't bother trying to hide anything in this reveal, all body lines can easily seen. So take this as the first production model in the wild.

Let me know what you guys think!

That grille looks a lot better than the patent drawings we saw earlier and that one comes with a moonroof. Nice!

Well its much like the concept we seen which is also pictured in the forums banner, so just like a lot of what we're seeing here, its not new. Overall things have been slightly toned down while keeping enough of the concept. Now to see what color options we get.

Here's a few more teasers of the new X2 under that odd camo wrap. Seems like it's going through the urban jungle now.

they did a good job highlighting certain things with the headlights being one of them, i know that bmw wanted to put some more emphasis on that with all the headlights changes that have come this time around.

One concern I do have is the rear visibility because of how steeply raked the window is and the low hanging wing.

I'm sure it'll be fine and it could look a lot better once you're inside the car. If that was the case then all coupes will be dangerous to drive with how slanted the rear window is.

BMW and most car makers these days have technology to make up for it so you don't have to worry. We got to the point that design is top priority and they just work around it with tech. If you think this is bad just wait for future generations.

I've heard of a rear view mirror that can switch between normal mirror view and rear camera view, but that's not really needed because rear visibility looks to be around average for its segment.

at this rate with the tech we're getting, a system that detects objects coming from either end might be more possible, already we see self driving tech slowly making its way and object recognition is one key feature of that.
