Wow, what a year it’s been so far for compact crossovers! It would seem there is no stopping the perpetual release of stylish new small SUVs by just about all car makers to keep up with current market trends.

In the same note, the new BMW X2 has just been unveiled in Germany. It’s an attractive small SUV with a playful, ‘extrovert’ personality aimed at the active / or so-called ‘millennial’ target group.

The X2 will celebrate its worldwide market premiere in March 2018 and slots between the X1 and X3 in automaker’s line-up, even though it’s actually a little shorter than its smaller sibling, the X1.

A host of design details underscore the distinctive character of the BMW X2. These include the BMW roundel on the C-pillars and the styling of the kidney grille, whose outline is wider at its base than at its top. The little X2 is also a little lower with shorter overhangs than the X1 and X3 and gives the vehicle a leaner, more muscular appearance.

The interior of the X2 is both elegant and functional and shares many characteristics with the existing X1. Standard features include black panel instruments, a multifunction steering wheel and a 6.5-inch touch infotainment screen. An optional 8.8-inch touch screen is also available to access the X2’s suite of on-board tech.

Among the optional equipment features offered exclusively by the BMW X2 in this segment is the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display.
