BMW’s new coupe-SUV illustrated in production guise.

The production BMW X2’s patent images leaked this week and based on details revealed by the images and spy media, IAB’s illustrator Shoeb Kalania creates an accurate, near-production mockup of the future SUV.

Compared to the design concept, the production BMW X2 gets slightly bigger windows and stretched headlamps to score on practicality.

Evolved from the BMW Concept X2, the BMW X2 (codename: BMW F49) features a design notably unique to itself, with proportions and styling largely different from the BMW X1 and even the BMW X4 and BMW X6. The BMW logo on the C-pillar has found its place in the production version, a design cue inspired by the BMW 3.0 CSL.

BMW didn’t reveal the concept version’s interior, but it is natural to expect the X2 to mimic the X1’s layout to save time and cost.

The BMW X2 shares the UKL platform with the BMW X1 and other compact BMW Group models, which means that it’s a front-wheel drive vehicle. Along with the platform, the X2 will share the 1.5-litre three-cylinder and 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines. Reports say that the 1.5-litre engine models will get a 7-speed dual-clutch transmission, so expect an even better fuel efficiency.

The BMW X2 reportedly gets its world premiere at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show on September 12 and reaches European shores in the first half of 2018. BMW’s marketing team will pitch this vehicle as a more stylish and emotive BMW X1 with its coupé-like silhouette.

As for India, the BMW X6 is a niche model with very limited volume reach, while the BMW X4 was ruled out due to cost concerns. Unlike these SAVs, the X2 can provide a balance of volume and brand building for BMW India, taking on the Range Rover Evoque which dominates the compact coupe SUV segment.
