The BMW lineup is expanding as the automaker has announced an assortment of new model variants for the fall.
Starting with the new engine variants, there will be sDrive20d versions of the X1 and X2. Both will be powered by a 2.0-liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder diesel engine that develops 187 hp (140 kW / 190 PS). It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission which sends power to the front wheels. This setup enables both models to accelerate from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 7.9 seconds.
BMW will also offer a new X2 xDrive18d which features a less powerful diesel engine with 148 hp (110 kW / 150 PS). When paired to the optional eight-speed automatic transmission, the model can run from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in 9.4 seconds. While it’s not exactly fast, the crossover can consume as little as 4.7 L/100km (50 mpg US / 60.1 mpg UK).
While BMW is putting the finishing touches on the all-new 1-Series, that hasn’t stopped them from developing a new Edition M Sport Shadow variant. Available in both three- and five-door configurations, the model replaces the M Sport and features a host of styling changes.
Key highlights include LED headlights with black accents, a high gloss black grille and tinted taillights. The hatchback also has black chrome exhaust tips and 18-inch lightweight alloy wheels. Rounding out the changes are exclusive two-tone sport seats and a BMW Individual headliner.
Besides the aforementioned engine updates, the X2 receives a new Advantage Plus variant. The model has a slightly revised exterior with LED head- and fog lights as well as high gloss black shadow line trim and 18-inch wheels with a ferric grey finish.
Inside, the model comes equipped with front sport seats, a BMW Individual headliner and high gloss black trim with pearl-effect chrome accents. The crossover also has additional standard equipment including an automatic climate control system, park distance control and a power tailgate.
Lastly, the X2 M Sport and M Sport X can be ordered with two new options including M sport seats and M seat belts.
