Combine the robust volumes of a Suv with a sleek, sporty coupé line. These were the intentions behind the BMW X2, the premium crossover of the blue and white roundel company, which focuses everything on styling with the aim of redefining the rules of a rather crowded segment. It is noticeable at first glance that the new double kidney grille has been redesigned and now extends downwards, a styling feature that we find only on the X2. The high belt line and sloping roof lend it a sporty, dynamic look and among the numerous configurations available it is possible to choose bright colours that increase its sporty character.
The interiors echo the family feeling typical of BMW’s X-range cars. Specifically, the close relationship with the X1 can be understood from some of the details, such as the design of the dashboard or the gear lever. The dashboard design continues along the doors with taut, stretched lines that convey movement. The most striking feature is the large infotainment system display, which is quick and intuitive to use. Completing the picture are quality materials and a genuine BMW sporty and comfortable driving feel.
Four versions are available: Advance, Business-X, M-Sport and M-Sport X. The latter embellishes the car with the bumper strips that enhance the X2’s off-roader look. The “Frozen Grey” colours of the front and rear bumper mouldings boost the scenic presence of the car on the road. Three diesel engines are available at launch, the 18d 20d and 25d, delivering 150, 190 and 231 horsepower respectively, and one 18i 140 horsepower petrol unit.
