In this video you see the 2018 BMW X2 testing at the Nürburgring.
Long the subject of rumors, BMW’s new X2 continues to take shape ahead of its market launch in 2018. Arriving roughly alongside it in BMW’s high-riding lineup will be redesigned versions of the X3 and X5, plus a new X7.
We were given a taste of the design of the X2 with the unveiling of a concept at the 2016 Paris auto show. As our spy shots and video reveal, the aggressive lines of the concept will be toned down for production but the basic shape should remain the same.
For the uninitiated, the X2 is a compact SUV with a coupe-like profile. It’s derived from the X1, just as the X4 is derived from the X3, and the X6—the original coupe-like SUV—from the X5.
The most basic versions of the new X2 will share the X1’s petrol and diesel engines, which means all will be turbocharged and have four cylinders. While there may be a front-drive sDrive18d, most X2s will use xDrive four-wheel drive.
The sportier M-developed high-performance version, which could be pictured here may be powered by an uprated version of the 2.0-litre petrol engine, and the car could carry the BMW M25i badge.
We’ll see the finished X2 production car at the end of 2017, ahead of deliveries in 2018.
