The new BMW X2 goes on sale this week with an entry level price-tag of €50,320 for the 190bhp xDrive20d SE.
With its unmistakable design and sporty, urban feel, the X2 breaks new ground for BMW as a unique and exciting addition to the X model range.
BMW says that the car’s chassis and xDrive intelligent all-wheel-drive system deliver the ideal balance between sporting dynamics and efficiency. The digital services from BMW ConnectedDrive and BMW ConnectedDrive Services – both of which are now available in freshly updated form – add further depth to the overall BMW X2 experience.
Even next to its bigger brothers, the X4 and X6, the new X2 makes a distinctive impression. The car’s exterior design combines the low-slung proportions of a coupe with the robust core of a BMW X model.
The X2 is two centimetres shorter and more than seven centimetres lower than the X1, yet has the same wheelbase. Featuring short overhangs, it also has a stretched, coupe-style roof-line and slim window graphic.
At launch, the X2 xDrive20d diesel variant will be available. It generates maximum output of 190hp and 400Nm of torque, enabling zero to 62mph in 7.7 seconds. Fuel consumption is still a highly impressive 61.4mpg, while claimed CO2 emissions are as low as 121g/km.
BMW says that further attractive variants of the X2 will be added to the Sports Activity Coupe’s line-up in early 2018, in the shape of the four-cylinder X2 sDrive20i, X2 sDrive18d and X2 xDrive18d.
