Production version to arrive in 2018.

The BMW Concept X2 is essentially the concept version of the forthcoming BMW X2 that will be positioned above the BMW X1 as its coupe-styled alternative. With the production model said to remain close to the concept in looks, the X2 will have a considerably different exterior from the conventional X1.

Finished in Luminous Red, the BMW Concept X2 sports a heavily raked windscreen, new design kidney grille, laser headlights with a blue ‘X’ in the hexagon tubes, sleek glasshouse, 21-inch double spoke, bi-colour light-alloy wheels and LED tail lights with “L”-shaped graphics. The interior is yet to be revealed.

The BMW X2 (codename: BMW F49) will be underpinned by the UKL platform that supports the 2 Series and the Mini family. 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines with outputs possibly ranging from 150 hp to 231 hp and transmission choices of a 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic are highly likely. An all-wheel drive system will be available in the higher-end models.
