A new SUV will arrive in 2018 and it goes by the name BMW X2. Previously, it was revealed as a concept at the 2017 Auto Show in Detroit, United States. But just in about a year, BMW will dish out the luxury crossover SUV to ever-loyal customers.
The X2 is perhaps a perfect median between X1 and X3. Already, the X5 and the prestigious big boy X6 are very popular among auto fans with a new big wig coming in the future - the X7.
The X2 is going to look very sporty and well-built to suit the aspirations of those who need a luxury, compact and thought-provoking crossover.
"The first-ever BMW X2 has a distinctive exterior design that combines the fast-moving body language and low-slung proportions of a coupe with the robust construction of a BMW X model," BMW said in a statement. "The BMW X2 represents an expression of modern and extrovert vehicle dynamics." "The standalone vehicle concept brings a new, fresh and exciting facet of the BMW to the compact segment", Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design, has said.
Accordingly, the X2 is expected to possess a moderate 228-horsepower, twin-turbo 4-cylinder engine fused to an 8-speed auto transmission. Speed range is 0 to 60 in just 6.3 seconds - not so fast like the heavy sedans such as the M5.
