BMW has great news as they have recently launched a 2018 X2 sDrive28i in the United States. And if you do not know what that means, it basically is a two wheel drive version of the current X2, which means that it is also much more affordable, with a starting price of $36,400 (excluding destination and handling of $995).
The 2018 version makes it $2,000 less than the X2 xDrive28i, the hatchback like crossover comes standard with LED lighting units, a power tailgate, as well as 18 inch alloy wheels. When looking at the base model, it does not exactly look very luxurious, though in the cabin, it gets a leather wrapped steering wheel and a 10 way power front sport seats with SensaTec upholstery. It also features an automatic climate control system, a high gloss black trim with pearl gloss chrome accents, and a seven speaker audio system.
Under the hood, you will find a 2.0 liter TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine that offers 228 horsepower (170 kilowatts) and 258 pound feet (349 Newton metres) of torque. This engine works with an eight speed automatic transmission that lets the crossover accelerate from 0 to 60 miles per hour in only 6.6 seconds before continuing to a top speed of 144 miles per hour (231 kilometers per hour). Having said that, it’s easy to figure out that the front wheel drive version will be slightly slower than the all wheel drive variant, but the good thing is that it is also more fuel efficient.Read the entire article BMW X2, X3 receive two-wheel drive models in the United States
On its website, BMW is offering customers the chance to configure how they would want their X2 to look.
As a start, all X2 versions will be fitted with the alloy 18-inch wheels. On the inside, offerings include an infotainment system, 7-speaker audio, leatherette seat, and even climate control. The price tag is $38,400, which excludes the destination and handling fee of $995. This remains to be more expensive though than the X1 with similar features. It is even more expensive than the GLA 250 4Matic from Mercedes-Benz. However, it is cheaper by $9,200, compared to the X4.Read the entire article BMW allows customers to create their X2 using its online configurator
Ever since BMW unveiled the first-ever BMW X2 sports activity coupe, the German premium carmaker has already gained the interest of luxury customers in the United States willing to wait until spring 2018 before they could get behind its wheel.
While BMW said that it would announce the pricing of the 2018 X2 near its market launch, order guides gathered by CarsDirect, showed that the sharply styled SAV would have a price that starts at just below $40,000 – or $39,395 including the $995 destination charge. This price applies to base model of this SAV, the 2018 X2 xDrive28i and represents a premium of $2,500 over the X1 xDrive28i at $36,895.
At a few hundred dollars below $40,000, the X2 xDrive28i is powered by the latest generation 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine with a twin-tailpipe design. Employing TwinScroll turbocharger, High Precision Direct Injection, Double-VANOS variable camshaft timing and VALVETRONIC fully variable valve lift, this engine is able to 228 hp of max output between 5,000 rpm and 6,000 rpm and 258 lb.-ft. of peak torque available between 1,450 rpm and 4,500 rpm. Power is sent to the wheels via an eight -speed Steptronic automatic transmission, with distribution managed by the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive. The X2 xDrive28i is estimated to be able to accelerate from nil to 60 mph in just 6.3 seconds.Read the entire article 2018 BMW X2 xDrive28i will arrive in the US next spring with base price of $39,395
Finally, BMW’s crossover lineup has been completed after the sixth member, the all new X2, rolls off the production line. According to its name, the X2 sits between the entry level X1 and the slightly larger X3 in the hierarchy. Surprisingly, it is actually slightly smaller in size compared to the X1. The Bavarian automaker’s newest sport utility vehicle is three inches shorter in length and is three inches lower in height.
The X2 was made with the intention to focus more on style than practicality. A lot of its mechanical features were based on the X1, as well as the MINI Countryman. This already includes the platform it is based on, that is the UKL2 - a chassis that restricts the car to a four-cylinder engine.
For the United States market, customers could get the BMW X2 in a TwinPower 2.0 liter four-cylinder that produces 228 horsepower (170 kilowatts) and 258 pound-feet (349 Newton-metres) of torque. This engine is then paired with an eight-speed automatic gearbox that channels the cars power to all four wheels. We are not expecting to see an M version of the X2 as of now, and maybe not anytime soon.Read the entire article X-Tomi wastes no time in creating rendering of BMW X2 M shortly after release
Many are wondering if BMW has an X2, as the German premium carmaker already offers the X1 and the X3 sports activity vehicles. The answer is both yes and no. Yes, BMW is now introducing the newest member of its X family, the X2 sports activity coupe. It is also a no, since the new BMW X2 won't be available to the public until spring of 2018.
The new BMW X2 combines the fast-moving forms and low-slung proportions of a coupe and the robust volumes of a BMW X model. Its looks and proportions are defined by its short overhangs, a stretched, coupe-style roofline as well as slim window graphic. Furthermore, the new X2 features a muscular look, as made possible by the fact that although it is shorter (by 3.2 inches) and lower (by 2.8 inches) than the BMW X1, it has the same wheelbase.
New X2 could also be availed in a sportier flavor, in the guise of the BMW X2 M Sport X. This version of the X2 combines design elements from BMW M and the BMW X family, as inspired by rally cars. To distinguish the BMW X2 M Sport X from the X2, the rally-inspired version offers optional 20-inch wheel, a lower ride height (by a half-inch), stiffer springs and damper tuning as well as distinct bumper styling.Read the entire article BMW introduces the X2 sports activity coupe
The BMW X2 will be the company’s next entry-level compact crossover to join the lineup. And because of that, it needs to up its game so it makes sense for the automaker to make it look more stylish, while giving it some hype. This is why the prototype will be dressed in digital camouflage when it makes an appearance at the Milan Fashion Week. Though we cannot completely see the design of the headlights and tail lights, the X2’s shape is pretty much what we should expect in the production specification.
Unlike the usual camouflage that most companies use, this is the second time the German automaker dressed the X2 in digital camouflage - combining a mix of yellow, gray, black, and blue in random shapes, instead of the orange and black camouflage. What makes this unique camouflage cool is that it unusually highlights the sporty and stylish qualities of the model more than hiding it.
Many say that the production version of the X2 is not as physically sleek as the earlier concept, and that the new design makes it resemble the X1 family more. We can see that it features angled-in headlights with inner LED piping, wide dual kidney grilles, paired with fog lights mounted high in the fascia.Read the entire article Check out the BMW X2 in its digital camo suit on the streets of Milan
German premium carmaker BMW is expected to unveil one of its newest sports utility vehicles – the BMW X2 – at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show next month. But still, that doesn’t prevent BMW from teasing the new X2 with the official images.
However, fans, enthusiasts and potential customers may not rejoice yet, since the images released by BMW don’t fully reveal the complete appearance of the X2 as the sporty SUV is still wrapped in camouflage. Despite the camouflage wrap, a keen eye would be able to sort out several critical details on the new SUVs exterior, like its powerful front end, sculpted sides, and dynamic rear.
Interestingly, the camouflage wrap on the new BMW X2 isn’t the usual black-grey-white one used in hiding the exterior looks of a new vehicle. The new BMW X2 is wrapped in colorful camouflage, with black, grey and white joined by yellow and orange, making the new sporty SUV look ready not just for the road but for the urban jungle.Read the entire article Camouflaged BMW X2 official images come out before reveal at 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show
The Concept X2, introduced back at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, impressed many people with its low-profile roof, and dramatic front end. Its looks implied a better performance and it appeared to be less of a utilitarian car such as traditional SUVs.
Did you wonder how a BMW X2 production version would look like? Well, it shouldn't be that hard to imagine. Just take the concept, and bring the styling down a notch by around 25 percent. The Japanese bureau submitted patent drawings of what could be the production-ready BMW X2 last February 22, but these had only been published on July 3rd.
The changes made to the final X2 are likely the same ones you would see on the patent. The slender side mirrors have been replaced with a set of chunkier side mirrors that offer a better view of the back.Read the entire article These patent drawings might actually be of the upcoming BMW X2 production version
Visitors at the 2016 Paris Motor Show that opened today were the first ones to see the BMW Concept X2. This is the latest addition to the compact car segment and has a distinct styling that sets it apart from the previous X models.
It also takes advantage of the carmaker’s experience and expertise in making coupes. What you get is a compact concept vehicle that is sporty and aggressive.
BMW Group Design senior vice president Adrian van Hooydonk says that the Concept X2 is perfect for active people who are looking for practicality and a fun driving experience. Van Hooydonk adds that the new concept car shows an exciting and new aspect of the BMW brand.Read the entire article BMW X2 Concept revealed at the 2016 Paris Motor Show
It has been confirmed that a new sporting crossover from BMW will be sold under the X2 name, according to Autocar. BMW officials have recently given their approval for how this model will be named. The new five-door liftback will start selling in the UK in the second half of 2017. It will be positioned in-between the soon-to-arrive second-generation X1 and the existing X3.
Sources say that this new crossover is set to be in development for 2.5 years in Munich at BMW’s research and development centre. Engineers at the automaker’s prototype workshop said that in just a matter of weeks, the first road-going prototypes of this new model will hit the road. A source said that the prototypes are in the process of being finalized and will likely be in action towards the end of the month.
The X2 is built on BMW’s UKL platform structure, which is also used on the new X1 and other new BMW models, such as the 2 Series Active Tourer and 2 Series Gran Tourer. The X2 is set to compete with the new Range Rover Evoque. Like the second-generation X1, this new crossover will be available only with transverse three-cylinder and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines.Read the entire article BMW’s new X2 crossover may arrive in 2017
We already know that BMW will introduce the X2 in 2017, when the second-generation X1 will arrive. What’s more interesting is that the upcoming BMW X2 is likely to be offered as a three or five-door and it will use the new UKL1 platform, same used by the 2014 MINI Cooper and by the front-wheel-drive 2-Series Active Tourer.
This means that the new X2 will be available with front or four-wheel-drive. For those who don’t know, the current BMW sDrive X1 are rear-driven, but it appears that things are about to change when the new generation will arrive.
Regarding the design, the BMW X2 will be inspired by the X4 and will have all the hallmarks of company’s Sport Activity Coupe models such as the sloping roofline and enlarged wheelarches.Read the entire article BMW X2 likely to be offered in two versions, with three or five doors
BMW is planning to widen the gap between the next-generation X1 and the facelifted X3 (F25) because it has a surprise for us: it will introduce a new X2 model. Set to arrive somewhere in 2017, the BMW X2 will be inspired by the upcoming X4, which will debut at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show, and is described as a more sporting variant of the next-generation X1.
As expected, the BMW X2 will use the platform of the next-gen X1 as well as the engines: an extended range of transversely mounted three-cylinder and four-cylinder direct injection petrol and common rail diesel engines with a capacity from 1.5- to 2.0-liters, same used by the recently introduced front-wheel drive 2-Series Active Tourer.
BMW X2 will be offered as standard with the six-speed manual transmission or with the optional eight-speed automatic gearbox and electro-mechanical multi-place clutch four-wheel-drive system. BMW is also planning a high-performance version of the X2 that will take on the Audi RS Q3 but also on the Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG.Read the entire article BMW X2 will be based on the X1, arrive in 2017
