BMW unveils all-new X2

Updated: 

BMW has pulled the covers off its new X2 crossover that sits alongside the BMW X1 and X3.

Just one engine is available on the X2 at launch, the 2.0-litre xDrive20d diesel, which produces 187bhp and 400Nm of torque. Further engines will be added to the line-up for 2018, including a range of 2.0-litre options with different outputs, including the petrol sDrive20i and diesel-engined sDrive18d and xDrive18d.

All-wheel-drive comes as standard on the xDrive20d, although next year two-wheel-drive derivatives will be available.

The X2 looks a bit different to past BMW models, too. While it still has BMW's instantly recognisable kidney grille, the X2's grille outline is larger at its base than the top – the first BMW to feature such design cue.

Four trim levels are available – SE, Sport, M Sport and M Sport X.

Standard equipment on the X2 includes twin exhaust pipes, parking sensors, 17-inch wheels, a 6.5-inch infotainment display with satellite navigation and an updated version of BMW's ConnectedDrive. Full LED headlights appear on all models, minus the most basic SE-spec cars.

Several equipment packs are also available, including a lighting package that allows for a host of different mood lighting settings and LED lighting in the cabin. A WiFi hotspot is also available as part of the Tech Pack, as well as wireless charging.

The X2 also has a key focus on safety, particularly cars that are fitted with the optional Drive Pack. This includes lane-departure warning, pedestrian safety with city braking function and collision warning.

Prices start from £33,980 for the X2, which will be available to order from mid-November.
