BMW previews X2 with Paris concept

Date: 29 September 2016   |   Author: Daniel Puddicombe

BMW has presented its X2 concept at the Paris motor show ahead of the production model's debut in 2018.

Based on the X1 crossover, the X2 is designed to offer more sporting appeal than the small off-roader, in the same way the X6 offers a more dynamic drive than the X5 large SUV.

"The BMW Concept X2 is a vehicle for active people looking for a combination of enjoyment and practicality," said Adrian van Hooydonk, senior vice president of BMW group design. "The concept displays a new and exciting facet of the BMW brand within the compact segment."

Powertrain information has not been revealed for the concept, but it is likely that the production version will use the same engines as the X1. The current X1 is powered by a 150hp 2.0-litre diesel which emits 109g/km of CO2 and returns 68.9mpg, and a 190hp 2.0-litre petrol which emits 127g/km of CO2 and returns 58.9mpg.

Visually, the X2 features a long wheelbase with stretched roofline, short overhangs and forward-slanting C-pillar.

The front of the vehicle is dominated by the kidney grille and large central air intake, while the rear of the car features rounded edges and prominent exhaust pipes.
