The new compact crossover BMW X2 is positioned as a representative of the segment of the Sports Activity Coupe and the younger “brother” of the model X4
The car, which received the factory index F39, resembles a sportival station wagon rather than a crossover, referring to the BMW X1 model of the previous generation. This is the first model of the brand, which received the branded “nostrils” of the radiator grille, expanding at the bottom, narrowed side windows, triangular air intakes along the edges of the front bumper and the emblem on the rear pillar of the roof, like the BMW sports cars of the 1960s. The salon is decided in the X1 style of the new generation – with a multimedia display, towering above the front panel, a powerful central tunnel and expensive finishing materials. X2 is based on the front-wheel drive platform UKL, familiar from the models X1 and MINI Countryman. Despite the “senior” index, the car is 69 mm shorter and 86 mm below the X1 with the same wheelbase (2,670 mm). The volume of the trunk is also more modest – 470 liters. At the start of Russian sales, scheduled for the end of winter, the model will be offered with a line of three motors – a basic 2-liter 192-horsepower gasoline unit and a diesel engine of the same volume (190 and 231 hp). Transmission depending on the version – 7-step “robot” or 8-band “automatic”. Optional xDrive full drive is available.
