The new and first BMW X2 has landed on US soil and starting this month it’s available for purchase at your local dealership. In America, the new crossover will only be offered as a BMW X2 xDrive28i, which means it will only come with all-wheel drive and only have the brand’s B46 2.0 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine.
That 228 hp engine will be mated to an eight-speed automatic and will power its front-biased all-wheel drive system. So it will be front-wheel drive most of the time but send power to the rear wheels as needed. According to BMW, it can get from 0-60 mph in about six seconds, which isn’t too shabby.
We’ve recently tracked the BMW X2 at the Thermal Club in Palm Springs and you can read our impressions here.
The BMW X2 is smaller than its X1 sibling and more coupe-like, with a more aggressive roofline, shorter overhangs and far more style. On paper, though, styling and size are about the only differences between the two cars.
This particular model listed here comes from Prestige BMW in New Jersey and features one of the three launch colors for the X2 – Galvanic Gold. The bright yellow is paired with a black interior for that great contrast and includes options such as the Panoramic Moonroof, M Rear Spoiler and Parking Assistant.
The car is listed at $49,595 and we’ve included some photos below for additional details.
