The eagerly awaited and slightly modified 2018 BMW X2 will come in the markets around the world very soon. In this case, very soon means the beginning of 2018. As we know, the X2 model from BMW is quite a young model, and it was introduced last year. This model is very similar to the X1 model, and it will look like some kind of coupe variant of X1 model. Just like the X4 is derived from the X3, the X2 model is derived from the X1. The newly 2018 BMW X2 will be underpinned by the same platform as the Mini Cooper, BMW 2 Series Active Tourer and the second-generation of X1 model.
2018 BMW X2 – Very Attractive Model:
According to rendering photos, the exterior design of the future 2018 BMW X2 will be very attractive, and the spy photos that we have confirms that. However, this model is still in early stage of developments, and maybe the current look is not the final one. However, according to spy photos, we can expect the same front grille that we used to see in others X models. The word is about already recognizable double kidney grille.
The headlights are also very similar as in the X1 model, but there are not connected with the grille as in some models. Also, the headlights will use the newest LED system, and the same case we can expect with the other lighting on the vehicle. This model will have very low roofline, and thanks to that fact, the aggressiveness of this model is on the high level. The bumper is so massive, and we can see larger air intakes compared to the others X models. The main competitor of this model will be Range Rover Evoque, and interesting fact is that this model will resemble a bit to the mentioned model.
The interior design of the recently developed 2018 BMW X2 will be very nice and similar to the X1 cabin. The cabin will provide refined A/C vents, floating infotainment screen as well as improved dashboard. The leather will wrap the steering wheel, door trims, and all seats. Also, this model will provide so many high-tech features. We can expect to see a seven-speaker audio system, dual zone climate control, cruise control, a navigation system, a lot of safety and connectivity options. The 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system will be an optional feature, just like the panoramic roof as well.
2018 BMW X2 – Engine Output:
The 2018 BMW X2 will be most likely powered by the same engine that we used to see in the X1 model. So, the standard engine will be a 1.5-liter three-cylinder gasoline unit with the max power output of 134 HP. This engine will be mated to a six-speed automatic and it will provide front wheel drive.
The second engine will be a 2.0-liter four-banger that will have two power outputs. The sDrive20i and xDrive20i will have the capability of delivering up to 189 HP while the xDrive25i will have a max power output of 228 HP.
The diesel side will provide a 2.0-liter four-pot engine with the max power output of 114 HP in the sDrive18d, 148 horses in the xDrive20d, and 187 HP in the xDrive 25d. In the U.S, we can anticipate only 2.0-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine with the capability of generating up to 228 HP and 258 pound-feet. This engine will be paired with the eight-speed automatic transmission and the power will be transferred to all wheels.
2018 BMW X2 – Development and MSRP:
The exact date of this model is not yet announced, but some rumors suggest that we can expect its arrival in the first three months of 2018. When it comes to prices, we can expect manufacturer’s suggested retail price of around $40.000.
