When it comes to the X2′s styling, expect it to have BMW’s signature “Sports Activity Coupe” design to it with a sloping roofline and prominent fenders. The model will carry the German automaker’s latest design language with more angular headlights, sharp creases and a large double kidney grille.
The X2′s lineup will feature various powertrains but expect the crossover to share its powerplants with the 2 Series for the North American market with a range-topping model to complete against the Mercedes-Benz GLA 45 AMG and Audi RS Q3.
