BMW X2 likely to be offered in two versions, with three or five doors

Article by Christian A., on July 30, 2014

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.

Under the hood, the X2 will share the same engines with the X1 and we will find three- 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 FWD 2-Series Active Tourer.

The engines will be offered as standard with a six-speed manual transmission, while the eight-speed automatic transmission will be available as an option.

BMW is also expected to offer a 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine delivering around 300 hp that will power an M version of the X2, which will take on the Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG and the Audi RSQ3.
