After making several camouflaged appearances, BMW’s new compact crossover ‘X2’ has been officially revealed, with market launch slated in March 2018. Take a look at the product highlights below.
Three variants are available from launch; the sDrive20i petrol with 141 kW/192 hp, xDrive20d diesel with 140 kW/190 hp, xDrive25d diesel with 170 kW/231 hp. Both diesel variants come as standard with xDrive all-wheel drive and the 8-speed Steptronic transmission, while the petrol model is fitted with the sporty 7-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission.
BMW said, further attractive models will be added by early 2018 – the 3-cylinder X2 sDrive18i, 4-cylinder xDrive20i, sDrive18d and xDrive18d. The outputs of the petrol models range from 103 kW/140 hp in the sDrive18i, up to 141 kW/192 hp in the xDrive20i, and the xDrive18d gets 110 kW/150 hp.
The M Sport and M Sport X models come as standard with M Sport suspension with firmer spring and damper settings and a lowered ride height. This feature is available as an option on the basic X2. The optional Dynamic Damper Control (including a 10 mm drop in ride height) allows the suspension settings to be tailored even more closely to individual tastes or requirements.
Driver assistance systems include Traffic Jam Assistant, which is a part of the optional Driving Assistant Plus, and the optional Parking Assistant.
BMW Connected and BMW ConnectedDrive Services – both available as an option for the X2. Joining them on the options list is the full-colour Head-Up Display.
