BMW has refreshed its baby crossover – the X2, for this year with new in-car connectivity services, revised design and new features inside. Now on sale in select European markets, here’s what the new X2 looks like inside out.
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 roofline.
The kidney grille has always been an identifying feature of a BMW. On the X2, however, its outline is wider at its base than at its top. The X2 is the first modern BMW to feature this design cue.
Full-LED headlights are offered as standard on the Sport, M Sport and M Sport X models. The horizontal design lines of the X2's rear-end emphasise the car's width.
The interior of the M Sport model comes with a Micro Hexagon fabric Anthracite/Alcantara combination, while the M Sport X gets leather upholstery as standard.
One of the most distinctive options on the list is the panoramic roof. The front section of the panoramic roof tilts and slides open, just like a conventional sunroof.
At the time of launch, the X2 xDrive20d diesel variant will be developing 190bhp and 400Nm of torque. Later on, a four-cylinder X2 sDrive20i, X2 sDrive18d and X2 xDrive18d will be offered.
The new X2 offers three different ways of interacting, as the sixth generation of the iDrive control concept now supplements the familiar iDrive Controller and optional voice control. The BMW X2 is now on sale in the UK with prices starting from £33,980 (Rs 30.47 lakhs), on-road for the xDrive20d SE variant.
