Latest BMW X2 Render Shows A Proper Sports Activity Coupe

If you’re going to keep inventing new sub-segments, the least you can do is make sure you’re not messing up from a design perspective.

Last month, we caught a glimpse of a rather uninspiring-looking BMW X2 rendering, which didn’t have anything going for it except for a …OK pretty much nothing going for it!

This one however is, shall we say, a lot more aesthetically pleasing. In fact it even looks the part and we wouldn’t mind seeing BMW actually build this thing and calling it the X2.

And if you’re not sure about people buying really small coupe-like SUVs, just take a deep breath and remember that you live in a world where the Range Rover Evoque is a massive hit. If LR can do it, then BMW certainly can get in the game. And yes, in the past we’ve had no choice but to compare the Evoque with slightly larger, truly compact SUVs such as the X3.

The BMW X1 (and potential X2) would make a lot more sense as an Evoque rival from a size perspective (wheelbase, weight etc), don’t you think?

As you can probably tell, this X2 rendering still has the X1’s front spoiler and grille but fused with a lot of X6 parts. The headlights are X6-ish, and so is the profile of the car, except there’s no secondary design line at the back like you see on the X6 and the X4 for that matter.

Not sure if that would work in real life (maybe it would) but safe to say we’ll have to wait until we hear/see something official about this car.

Until then, enjoy the visual!
