BMW X2 Tries On A Production-Spec Suit, Looks Sleek

BMW is getting ready to roll out a sportier crossover, which will wear the X2 moniker.

Previewed by a concept a couple of weeks ago, during the 2016 Paris Auto Show, the study has been toned down by RemcoM in a new rendering that shows how it could look like once the Germans commence production.

On the outside, the upcoming X2 will be inspired by the latest interpretation of the X1, and it will set itself apart with a sloping roofline and minor tweaks on both ends. The cabin is expected to mirror the X1, too, and the two vehicles will also share the same platform, so front-wheel drive will be standard and all-wheel drive will make its way on more upmarket versions.

The first units of the new BMW X2 are said to roll off the assembly line in either 2017 or 2018, making it the third SAC (Sports Activity Coupe) in BMW’s lineup after the X6 and X4.

    I like this guy. Because he actually takes the time to include a back render. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9d826c4106f77c546546b614003cc5582e2f02ec3c33940d41b100eabb47be8d.png

      Also, the front is flat as a 2X4.

    What’s that wooden panel between the exhausts??

    BMW has lost its way. Each year the grill is further exaggerated to the point of looking foolish and cartoonish. This doesn’t look refined in any way. It actually looks like a knock off Kia and Hyundai CuV’s. They need to take a sabbatical for a year or two then make a comeback with new fresh designs.
