2018 BMW X2 – External Body Parts and Inner Cosmetic Changes
This SUV will be based on the BMW X1 front wheel drive platform but will take after the larger X4 and X6 in getting a distinctly styled steel body. On the exterior it will share much of the same basic features of its predecessor the X1 though from the B-pillar it will spot a more aggressive design. This vehicle will come with its own distinctive personality in the form of a line sloping ceiling and a totally new rear end.
In the interior this BMW SUV will surely retain or improve on the features of the X1 which will include: cruise control, ambient interior lighting, premium vinyl upholstery, blue tooth phone connectivity, split-folding rear seat, a multiple speaker sound system, USB ports among other luxurious features.
2018 BMW X2 – Engine and Performance
This luxury SUV is expected to feature three- cylinder and four cylinder diesel and petrol engines with the options of front wheel drive four-wheel drive vehicles. The engines will be paired to either a 6-speed manual or 8-speed automatic gearboxes for both varieties of the front and four-wheel drive versions. With the powerful engines, the BMX X2 2018 performance most likely will still be an improvement on the current performance of its predecessors. The performance of the engine is going to remain among the best in the class while retaining a relatively thrifty fuel economy. This will mean quick and authoritative acceleration on the highway. The petrol version of the 2018 BMW X2 will deliver at least 21/28 miles per salon in the city and highways while the diesel engine is expected to perform at least 27/37 miles per gallon in the same category of roads. It is not clear whether this automobile will follow in the footsteps of the preceding X1 and X3 in offering numerous variants.
2018 BMW X2 – Price and Release Date
Feature by feature this 2018 BMW X2 will offer value for money. The official price of this SUV has not yet been released. However, we can figure it to range somewhere in the price of $47,210 paid for the 2017 BMW X3. When one factors its sophisticated dynamics, practicality and overall anticipated quality reflective of the accumulated experience of the manufacturer, it can safely be hoped that the SUV’s value equation will not be lopsided against the buyer. The 2018 BMW X2 is expected in the market in 2018.
