Check Out BMW’s Head-Turning X2 Concept In Real Life Images

BMW is getting ready to sail into uncharted waters again, as after the launch of the X6 and X4, another sporty SUV is just around the corner – the smaller X2.

Previewed by the Paris Auto Show study, the X2 is on its way for a production debut in early 2018.

The high-riding crossover shares most of its components with the latest generation X1. What this means is that, despite carrying a more athletic design (keep in mind, it will be softened down before it hits the assembly line), it will have to do with front-wheel drive in the most basic version, but the company’s xDrive all-wheel drive system will be offered either optionally or standard on higher-end models.

An M version, which could target the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45, would be an interesting addition to the lineup, but BMW will likely stick to the usual four-pot petrol and diesel mills, at the time of its launch, at least.

However, later on, it could adopt an M-Performance variant, according to Autocar, which could use a 2.0-liter, four-cylinder turbo unit, producing somewhere in the neighborhood of 300 horsepower, while a petrol-electric plug-in powertrain is not out of the question either.

    this should be on the market Now. And look exactly like this

    • Edumcris

      Yes, and sell it at X1 prices.

    if it’s production is the same like this
    BMW will got it’s wild card

  • DadzBoyz

    Agree with others. This should be on the road now.
    The only things on it (in term of appearance) that would not make it into production are:
    – The side mirrors Too small. Make them same look but larger.)
    – The tires are custom and for show. Put roadworthy production rubber on it and go.

  • Six Thousand Times

    Not special but not as pig’s-ass ugly as BMW’s X4 and X6.

  • AstonMartin

    That’s a very handsome design – in fact, it would make an ideal commuter vehicle. I agree with Six_Tymes, this exact X2 should be on the market right now. Great job BMW!

    I like the unique appearance of BMW X6 and X4, especially when they’re seen from the sideways. The look sleek, sporty and very “coupe”. Their swooping roof lines really set them apart from the competition and even gave birth to new category: “coupe” SUV. It became trendsetter and followed by other manufactures (MB GLE and GLC coupes come in mind). I think this X2 doesn’t have the same flair as its big brothers. It doesn’t look very different from X1 and even Hyundai i20.

      I’ll have whatever you’re smoking!

        FYI: I don’t smoke. And people can have different opinion, and different preference.

        • TheHake

          I was just kidding, man. And I was referring to the fact that you say this looks like an i20.

          • Ary Wisesa

            Oh, okay. 🙂
            I just wanted to point its rear design is quite similar with those from Hyundai. 🙂

  • Knotmyrealname

    I like it. I want it, and I KNOW it’s a concept, but tyres that look like cogs? Not sure how that could be appealing.
    Otherwise, gimme gimme!!

    • Matthew Daraei

      Dude, the tires are made for just this concept. It’s just a show model of the real production car.

      • Knotmyrealname

        I know that, I stated that, but how is that appealing?How would it relate to real vehicles? It doesn’t.

  • Balcis

    Reverse grills not a thing for me.

  • U8INIT

    Favorite part is that Roundel on the D Pillar…nice SAV thou.

  • Bob White
