NEW BMW X2: A crossover with coupe styling?

The newest member to the impressive SUV team, standing with the likes of BMW’s King SUV (the X5) the pressure is on for the premium German car manufacturer to put their bold cards on the table. And they did.

Here's everything you need to know about the NEW BMW X2.

NEW BMW X2: Pricing

The BMW X2 has 4 trim levels, the SE, Sport and the M Sport X.

The X2 is priced from £33,980 at launch for the xDrive20d SE, but will fall to £29,995 when the sDrive18d variant arrives in dealers.

The xDrive20i and xDrive18d slot in between the two, priced at £31,445 and £31,495 respectively.

NEW BMW X2: Exterior and Design

Encompassing a sportier look, the X2 kept its promise to provide most of the features on its concept original. An included feature is the BMW badge inset into the C-pillar, with swept-back lights and slim line glass over the hatch.

At first glimpse, although the X1 and X2 share the same wheelbase, the X2 has adopted a sportier look with short overhangs, plus the roofline has been lowered, which means the boot will be 35 litres smaller than the X1 but will give an attractive illusion of a coupe.
