BMW X2 spotted in Galvanic Gold

From the launch color palette of the BMW X2 – Galvanic Gold, Misano Blue and Mediterranean Blue – the striking yellow is the one that stands out the most. And that very same color was spotted at the BMW Welt in Munich where the X2 went for a quick exhibit. Coupled with the beautiful Sunset Orange and Dark Olive, all the new paint options for the X2 come to emphasize its young spirit and hipsterish looks.

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. The X2 also features a long hood, a steeply raked windshield, a sleek greenhouse, and an aggressively styled rear end with horizontal taillights.

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.

    When do we get the 228hp engine in Europe?

    Pretty car. Shame BMW decided to overprice so badly. The price difference (of starting prices) between the X1 to X2 is just too great and there isn’t much difference between them except for outside styling.
    In fact, BMW price difference between the odd number X cars and the even number X cars makes no sense.
    Exhibit (starting prices):
    X1 = £26,900
    X2 = £33,980
    Difference = +£7,080

    X3 = £33,500 (previous generation)
    X4 = £38,540
    Difference = +£5,040

    X5 = £48,140
    X6 = £59,360
    Difference = +£11,220

    X5 M50d = £69,020
    X6 M50d = £70,020
    Difference = +£1,000

    So why is the M50d version of the X5 and X6 with only £1,000 difference in price??? Some may argue that BMW is subsidising the X6 M50d but I don’t believe BMW subsidies anything.

      In Germany, the even number cars often start with a larger engine. If I was to compare the X1 and X2 by the same engine, the difference is some 2.500€ (varies by model).
      Same applies to X3,X4 and X5,X6. The X5 M50d and X6 M50d already have the same engine (afaik)

        Actually, in the UK, both the even number and odd number cars in the X range start with the same engine, and normally share the same type of engines, all the way through. The price difference is ridiculous and makes no sense. None at all.
