2018 BMW X2 Design And Specs Revealed



BMW has finally revealed their upcoming Sports Activity Coupe to the world in all its gold and silver glory and AutoBlog has uploaded the whole album.

Though the 2018 X2 is called a coupe, this crossover is more practical as a daily driver thanks to its hatchback-like proportions. Rear headroom could be better as the X2 is 3.2 inches shorter and 2.8 inches lower than the X1, but the 21.6 cubic feet cargo space is not bad and thatís with the rear seats up. Lower those seats and the space increase to 50.1 cubic feet.

Customers can choose from 11 paint colors including Galvanic Gold, Sunset Orange and Misano Blue. Contrasting trim colors only comes in either grey or black, depending on the trim.

Standard features include LED lighting, BMW's iDrive infotainment system, 6.5-inch display, a set of 18-inch wheels and more. Those who want a bit more can opt for 19-inch wheels, navigation package that comes with an 8.8-inch unit, automatic cruise control, or a full-color heads-up display. Thereís also a Driving Assistance Package which installs lane departure warnings, speed limit info, automatic high beams and front and pedestrian collision warnings.

The base model X2 will be powered by a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline-four engine delivering 228 horsepower and 228 pound-feet of torque. Paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, those ponies are transferred to all four wheels for a 0-62 mph sprint time of just 6.3 seconds before topping out at 130 or 143 if the M Sport X package is added.

Set to appear on showroom floors next spring, a base model X2 will only set you back $36,985.

The X2's proportions are definitely spot on, not too long to make it look like a wagon and the roofline is not too slanted to compromise cabin headroom. A lot better looking than the Mercedes GLC! Let's wait and see what standard equipment it comes with.

I agree, BMW did a great job of taking what they did well with the BMW 1 Series and taking it up a notch in this X2. Unfortunately it might not help too much in pulling people away from Audi and Mercedes but so far it should maintain the current group of BMW loyalists. What BMW standard features are you looking for ?

I think it looks more like GLA than GLC, is that what you meant? As for me, it seems like they took some GLA's ideas and made it look even better. I like this design and can't wait to see its basic equipment.

Great looking vehicle! I wish there was a more powerful engine, but it seems like even M Sport Package will not upgrade mechanical part of the car and will only add 20-inch wheels, a lower suspension, and some added detailing to the cabin.
