BMW has officially unveiled the new X2 crossover.
Dubbed “the cool X,” the model is based on the X1 but is shorter and lower than its corporate counterpart. The X2 also features unique styling which makes it resemble a large hatchback instead of a traditional crossover.
Starting with the exterior, the crossover has a unique kidney grille which turns the “familiar trapezoidal shape on its head” as its wider on the bottom than it is on the top. The grille is flanked by large air intakes and slender headlights with integrated LED daytime running lights.
Moving further back, we can see a rakish windscreen, a compact greenhouse, and a gently sloping roof which meets a tailgate-mounted spoiler. Designers also installed prominent shoulder lines, LED taillights, and BMW logos on the C-pillars.
The X2 can be equipped with a variety of different wheels in sizes ranging from 17- to 20-inches. As usual, the crossover’s appearance depends on which version is selected as base models have black cladding and a traditional rear bumper while X2 M Sport X variants have Frozen Grey cladding and a sportier rear bumper.
