The X2 will ride on the X1’s UKL platform and will provide a coupe-like alternative to the new X1 (F48) just as the X4 does for the X3 and the X6 does for the X5, which means the X2 will also share an interior with the new X1.
The prototype shows a very low and wide shape – the sportiest shape yet of all of BMW’s coupe-styled CUV, and the X2’s look is aimed squarely at the Range Rover Evoque with its low roof, high doorline and short overhangs.
Expect the X2 to be offered in the same engine range as the X1 (3 and 4 cylinder models) and in either FWD or xDrive AWD.
It will be produced alongside the new X1 at BMW’s Regensburg factory in Germany. The production version is expected to make its debut at the 2017 IAA show in Frankfurt.
