BMW has finally announced the all-new X2. The BMW X2, last seen two years ago at a road show as a prototype, was officially introduced on Wednesday, October 25. Unlike the X4 and X6, the newly-launched X2 isn't designed like a coupe, but a conventional SUV. This makes the Car both comfortable and practical as the headroom and cargo areas are increased.

The all-new BMW X2: design and features

The new car is slated to make its way to the market in March 2018.

It borrows a lot of design cues from the X2 concept. With the X2, the luxury carmaker brings a sublime design, which is backed by a robust engine. The car looks smart from all angles and the styling does a brilliant job in amalgamating ruggedness with sportiness.

The vehicle is primarily targeted at the young and urban crowd, namely the young corporate sector. The design features signature squared-off wheel arches, side skirts, bespoke tailpipes for exhaust, and an elegant roofline. The signature kidney grill gets a trapezoidal touch. The C-pillars of the car are rounded off, giving it the classic BMW coupe design. The car features 18-inch alloys as the standard with an option of 19-inch alloys as well.

In terms of space and design, the interior looks as if it is lifted right off of its crossover sibling the X1. It comes with BMW's standard iDrive system. The previous 6.5-inch touchscreen is now 8.8 inches with features like navigation and Apple CarPlay built in. The car also features an optional driving assistance system.

This car has the same chassis as the X1 and is a FWD model unlike the company’s other SUVs, which are RWD. The X2 gets a 2-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine under the hood. In terms of engine options, the car is expected to get varied options in diesel and petrol but the most obvious model on offer would be the xDrive28i and sDrive20i in petrol and the xDrive20d and XDrive25d in diesel.

What about the car's pricing and release?

The luxury carmaker also introduced an M edition of the X2. This edition comes with an additional sporty transmission and paddle shifters. While nothing has been mentioned so far in terms of pricing, we expect it to be priced slightly higher than the X1. The X2 will be available in exciting hues such as Misano Blue, Sunset Orange, and Galvanic Gold. The car's pricing will be revealed closer to its release in 2018. Until then, BMW won't be sure if their car is a hit with the Millennials.
