Sporty BMW X2 Compact Crossover Spied Testing

1

It looks like BMW is getting another strange crossover ready for production, this time the small and stylish X2, captured here by our spy photographers.

A car that likely no one knew they wanted, the X2 is the sportier version of the new X1. It shares the same front-wheel drive based platform as the X1 and its MINI cousins. It will also likely be offered with the same powertrains, meaning a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine turbocharged to makes 228-hp and 258 lb-ft of torque.

Design-wise, this prototype spied testing, seems to lack the coupe-ish roofline of the X4 and X6, but instead has a lower roof altogether.

Rumors hint that a M model of the X2 could be in the works, in addition to a plug-in hybrid model, but we’ll wait for the official introduction of the standard X2 before spreading all the wild speculation.

    so they can go all out developing an X2 which is not really different from an X1,
    but they still won’t slap together an M3 Wagon or M3 GT
