The famous Bavarian manufacturer prepares a completely new model, which will come as 2018 BMW X2. This will be the latest addition to the company’s lineup full of exciting cars. What X6 is for the X5, or what X4 is for the X3, this crossover will be for the company’s entry-level X1 model. It will ride on the same platform and share most of characteristics, including powertrain, interior design etc. Also, the 2018 X2 will bring to us a completely new styling, which will be some kind of a presentation of the company’s newest design language, which will include a little bit more changes, compared to some previous generations. The new model is the final phase of development and we expect its arrival very soon.
2018 BMW X2 redesign
The 2018 BMW X2 will be a completely new model. It will be a derivate of the brand’s entry-level model X1. These two models will share the same UKL platform, which also underprints 2 Series and complete Mini lineup. This new crossover will definitely have an AWD capability. When it comes to styling, the company prepares to introduce a completely new design language with this model. It will feature a completely new front end of the vehicle, with highlights like new sharper headlights, sporty bumpers with huge air intakes, and a completely new grill design. The rear end of the crossover will feature a familiar coupe-like styling, just like X4 and X6 models, which are a derivate of the odd-number models. When it comes to the interior design, we still don’t know the exact details, but the new 2018 BMW X2 should feature similar cabin design to the X1 model.
2018 BMW X2 engines
The 2018 BMW X2 will most likely feature the same engine lineup as the entry-level X1 model. So, the North American model will feature a 2.0-liter gasoline engine, which has a max power of 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This engine comes in a pair with an 8-speed automatic transmission and optional all-wheel drive. For the markets like Europe, we expect to see diesel units in the offer, and some smaller gasoline engine as well. Also, expect manual transmission in the offer in many markets.
2018 BMW X2 release date
The 2018 BMW X2 is expected to come in next few months. The base model will go somewhere between 30.000 and 35.000 dollars.
