BMW’s coupe-SUV family is actually expanding with spy images confirming the long-awaited arrival of the 2018 BMW X2 in early 2018. Being sibling to the X6 and X4 it’s set to lure customers to a more urban-focused compact model.
The 2018 BMW X2 is currently undergoing a series of tests in the EU right before production bursts out in Germany’s wine hub of Regensburg in the second half of 2017. It shares the same UKL platform with the X1 as well as the Mini range.
However, above the axle line, the X2 also coded F39 boasts the swoopy coupe lines of the X6 and X4 and also shrink wraps the body over its wheelbase for the purpose of reducing overhangs and ensuring a sporty appearance.
BMW has been noticed testing camouflaged versions of the X2: in towing maneuvers, in snow and also in hot-lapping the Nurburgring.
The vehicle’s frontal design turns to be more aggressive compared with the X1, with a bolder, wider grille and bigger intake openings. While the X1 can be defined as a practical compact SUV, its follower, the X2 is going to be more about performance and style as it can become a suitable platform for the high-output Mini Cooper drivetrains.
Meanwhile, the car marker hasn’t revealed anything yet. Spies caught the car maker testing camouflaged versions of the vehicle.
