AutoJunk.nl has shared images of the new BMW X2. The crossover was spotted for the first time in the flesh at the BMW Museum in Munich. The X2 is the latest entrant in BMW's X range of SUVs and crossovers.
This is the first ever product from the German marquee to sport the X2 badge. The design, while unmistakably BMW, incorporates some new elements. The signature kidney grille has been turned upside down and is wider towards the bottom - a first for any production BMW. The insignia's placement on the C-pillars is reminiscent of legendary BMW models such as the 2000 CS and 3.0 CSL.
The rear features LED tail lamps, which, according to BMW "represent a symbiosis of the T-shape lighting contour shared by other BMW X models and the L shape familiar from BMW coupes." The rear bears a passing resemblance to Hyundais. Specifically the Tucson and the i30. This particular example is finished in Galvanic Gold metallic, same as the first set of official images.
One of the images also offers a glimpse of the steering wheel and instrument console. Being the M Sport X variant, this particular example of the BMW X2 gets the M Package steering wheel and faux carbon fibre detailing on the dashboard. The instrument console features BMW's characteristic red glow. The floating touchscreen interface for iDrive is also partially visible. There will be three variants on offers - Basic, M Sport, and M Sport X (pictured here).
BMW has announced the X2 will be making its market premiere in March 2018. According to a recent report, BMW will bring the X2 to India sometime next year. An Auto Expo appearance could be on the cards.
