The new BMW 2019-2020 introduces a new crossover BMW X2, which officially opened on October 25, 2019. The new BMW X2 (X2) joined the Sports Activity Coupe and became an excellent addition to the company of coupe-like crossovers in the BMW X6 and BMW X4 . In our review, the compact crossover BMW X2 2019-2020 – photos and videos, the price and specifications, the technical characteristics of the twin brother of the BMW X1 . Sales of BMW X2 in Europe and Russia will start in early spring of 2020 at a price of 39,200 euros for the 192-horsepower petrol BMW X2 sDrive20i and from 43,800 euros for the diesel 190-horsepower version of the BMW X2 xDrive20d.
The Bavarian company BMW AG is the creator of the Sports Activity Coupe segment, the first-born of which at the time was a large coupe-like crossover BMW X6 , based on the technique and platform of the BMW X5 . Then the Bavarians released the BMW X4, which has a common platform with the BMW X3 . And then came the moment of the debut of the BMW X2, based on the cart of the compact crossover BMW X1.
It would seem that everything is logical and predictable. But … unlike the larger models of the BMW X4 and BMW X6, which have coupe-like bodies, the new BMW X2 looks like a crossover with a traditional 5-door body. At the same time the novelty demonstrates a more sporty, dynamic and hazardous profile than the BMW X1, with other proportions and overall dimensions of the body.
We want to note that the serial version of the BMW X2 was less expressive than the prototype of the BMW X2 Concept , presented last autumn at the car show in Paris. However, the new crossover BMW X2, ready to stand on the conveyor, looks wonderful, very bright and original.
German designers especially succeeded in lateral and rear parts of the novelty: a smoothly falling roof line to the stern, powerful doors with a high window sill, a filigree rear post decorated with the BMW logo, expressive stampings above the rear wheel arches, solid fodder with a compact luggage compartment door, large shades dimensional lights and a massive bumper.
In the basic configuration of the headlamp headlights are conventional halogen with LED daytime running lights. As an option, full headlamp headlamps are available. Rear parking lights by default LED with three-dimensional graphics.
- The exterior dimensions of the body of the BMW X2 2019-2020 are 4360 mm in length, 1850 mm in width, 1526 mm in height, with 2670 mm of wheelbase and 182 mm of ground clearance.
- The coefficient of the front body drag is 0,28 Cx.
The new Bavarian crossover is offered for order in three different packages – Basic, M Sport and M Sport S. For a compact crossover, exclusively alloy wheels from R17 to R20 are available.
BMW X2 salon is almost in full compliance with the interior design of the BMW X1, but this applies only to the front of the cabin with exemplary ergonomics of the driver’s seat, management tools and first-row seats. The rear of the cabin and the luggage compartment of the X2 model can not boast the same practicality as the passenger seats and the trunk of the X1.
In the compact new segment of the Sports Activity Coupe segment, the second-row seat is fixed and unable to move along the cabin on the sled, as in the BMW X1. The luggage compartment of the BMW X2, with a look at the smaller body dimensions than the BMW X1 in length by 79 mm and in height by 72 mm, of course, less capacious. According to the manufacturer, the BMW X2 trunk can accept from 470 to 1355 liters.
But in terms of equipping the BMW X2 is superior to the BMW X1. The base is a virtual dashboard, multimedia with a color 6.5-inch screen, two zone climate control and decorative stitching on the front panel, but for advanced equipment still need to pay extra. Multimedia system with 8.8 inch color screen (navigation, rear view camera, Apple CarPlay, Wi-Fi), Head-Up Display, Adaptive Cruise Control, Collision Warning, Parking Assistant and High Beam Assistant, Traffic Jam Assistant and Pedestrian Warning with City Braking function, Driving Assistant Plus with Lane Departure Warning are offered as options.
