The second-generation BMW X2 has been teased for the global arena with a larger, illuminated kidney grille and a distinctive LED running light. According to market reports, the car's prototypes have been spotted frequently running on international roads, suggesting that its global premiere is near. The new X2, according to the official teaser, appears to abandon the elevated hatchback styling of the current model in favour of a more coupe-like appearance inspired by the BMW X4 and the X6 counterparts. The new model shows an enormous grille that has an illuminated surround along with headlamps with a distinctive LED light signature. Let's take a closer look at the potential characteristics of the upcoming new-generation BMW X2 for the international market.
New BMW X2: Teaser Highlights
The new-generation X2 shows coupe-SUV proportions, which is a substantial upgrade over the current model's hatchback-type crossover appearance. Additionally, it appears to get a sweeping roofline, similar to that of the X4 and the X6 models. This has been made possible because of a greater rear overhang than before. There are also indications of the integrated rear spoiler, the high-mounted taillights, and more. The illuminated grille is also revealed in the teaser. Moreover, the headlights featured C-shaped LED daytime running lights.
Although there aren't any interior teasers, the new X2 is expected to be substantially identical to that of the X1, with a 10.7-inch infotainment screen and a 10.25-inch digital driver display on the BMW Curved Display.
New BMW X2: Mechanical Specifics
BMW hasn't disclosed many mechanical details concerning the forthcoming X2, but it's likely that the new version will use the same FAAR platform as the X1. The second-generation X2 is anticipated to be available with an array of engine options, including diesel and petrol, in addition to the pure electric.
