The much awaited BMW X2 will finally be officially unveiled at the 2016 Paris Motor Show that will be held in September this year. Based on the UKL platform, the X2 appears to be the coupe-style version of the second-generation X1. The upcoming model is expected to be launched in the global market sometime early in 2017.
The BMW X2 is expected to be offered with a three and four cylinder engine option, which will come mated to either a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic transmission. Though front-wheel drive will be offered as standard, the top-spec variant will get the xDrive all-wheel drive system option. Sources have also hinted at the possibility of an M Performance model being offered which will be based on the X2. The M Performance model might get a B48 unit that will churn out high performance figures.
On the pricing aspect, we believe that the vehicle will be priced closer to the X3 than the X1 model. The BMW X2 will also offer premium interior upholstery and customization option. On the safety aspect, it will be loaded with all modern safety equipment. More details about the vehicle will be known post its official debut at the 2016 Paris Motor Show.
