The BMW X2, like its bigger brothers, will adopt a sloping roofline and upright rear-end.

The X2 is nothing but the latest X1 with a sloping roofline and a re-worked rear-end, similar to the likes of it bigger brothers - the X4 and X6. Small tweaks will be made to the overall design for a bolder stance and sporty appeal.

It will likely share more than the UKL platform with the BMW X1, which includes the range of 2.0-liter four cylinder diesel and petrol engines with power outputs ranging from 150 hp to 231 hp. In the X1, transmission options include a six-speed manual for the entry-level diesel variant, while the rest will benefit from an 8-speed ZF automatic. Top variants will get the xDrive AWD system as standard.
