BMW Could Chop The Roof Off The X2, Three-Door Seems More Plausible

When Nissan introduced the Murano CrossCabriolet at the 2010 LA Auto Show and marketed it as the world’s first two-door convertible crossover, everyone raised an eyebrow. Plus, the description was inaccurate, as the Japanese company somehow seemed to have “forgotten” that this title belonged to the Suzuki X90.

Anyway, not many carmakers followed Nissan’s example. In fact, the only ones we can think of are Mercedes-Maybach with the luxurious and insanely expensive G650 Landaulet and Range Rover with the more affordable Evoque Cabriolet.

Although the niche didn’t exactly take off, BMW appears to be interested in it. If a report posted by turns out to be true, then they’re considering chopping the roof off the X2 and marketing it against the open-top Range Rover Evoque, which starts at £45,250 ($64,051) in the United Kingdom.

Judging by older renderings signed by XTomi and Aksyonov Nikita, the X2 doesn’t exactly look appealing as a Cabriolet. Then again, some said that Land Rover had gone crazy by even thinking about offering an open-top of the RR Evoque, but even so the model did make it into production.

Now, if a X2 Cabriolet sounds unlikely, a (rumored) three-door coupe version of the small crossover is a much more plausible option, though at this point BMW hasn’t said anything about it. But it does sound like a much more logical move from Munich, doesn’t it?
