Its new and fresh design is a departure from the typical X models, with plenty of new ideas and design cues. Among the new model’s defining styling elements is a fresh interpretation of the signature kidney grille and round fog lamps mounted high within its heavily structured front bumper.

Powering the BMW X2 will be the typical suite of small four-cylinder engines, both petrol and diesel. So there will be a BMW X2 xDrive18i, xDrive20i, xDrive28i, xDrive20d and xDrive25d. Transmission options will be either a six-speed manual or seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Though, the one to have is the BMW X2 xDrive20i, as it comes with the most potent of petrol engines — a 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder making 192 hp and 206 lb-ft of torque, with only the DCT gearbox available. BMW claims it can get from 0-60 mph in 7.7 seconds.

The BMW X2 xDrive28i with 228 horsepower will be available in the US in Spring 2018 starting at $39,395.
