Will go on sale in Europe in 2017.

The long-rumoured BMW X2 is finally set to go official this year as the Bavarian automaker’s third ‘Sports Activity Coupe’ after the BMW X6 and the BMW X4. A report last month said that the BMW X2 will have its world premiere at the 2016 Paris Motor Show that will open for press on 29 September. A set of speculative renderings from Auto Bild preview the BMW X2 months ahead of its global debut.

The BMW X2 was previously rendered in a similar fashion to the BMW X6 and the BMW X4. But the renderings from the German publication preview a fresh start for the future coupe-styled BMW crossovers, starting with the X2.

The BMW X2 will be based on the the UKL front-wheel drive platform sourced from sister brand MINI, currently employed in the BMW 2 Series Active Tourer, BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer, and of course, the second generation BMW X1. According to the new report, the BMW X2 will be offered with three-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with outputs ranging from 116 to 192 PS and four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines with outputs ranging from 150 to 245 hp.

Transmission choices should include 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive will be standard, but the xDrive all-wheel drive system will be available moving up the range.

Following its physical debut in Paris this September, the BMW X2 will reportedly go on sale in Europe in 2017. It is said to be closer to the BMW X3 than the BMW X1 in terms of pricing, and will be manufactured alongside the latter at the company’s Regensburg plant in Germany.
