BMW X2 will be based on the X1, arrive in 2017

Article by Christian A., on February 21, 2014

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.

This model will be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder direct injection petrol engine that will generate around 300 hp. This version will carry the well-known M badge and is expected to carry a new body kit consisting of new front and rear bumpers, side sills, a new set of M alloy wheels as well as a new interior featuring a new set of sport seats, an M steering wheel wrapped in leather, aluminum pedals and the M footrest. More details to be revealed!
