A new 2019 BMW X2 M35i with 302 horsepower

It was only a matter of time before BMW took its youthful and cool X2 compact crossover to the next level. This is not however the first time BMW boosts their entry-level Sport Activity Vehicles with more power. The last generation X1 actually offered a 35i version with a turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-6. With 300-horsepower on tap, it was one of the quickest and least expensive high-powered Bimmers of the time.

The new 2019 X2 M35i will not get a 6-cylinder engine (that would make it an M40i), rather it will sport a high-output version of the 28i/30i turbocharged 2.0-liter 4-cylinder mill. Power is rated at 302 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque or plenty to send the X2 to 100 km/h in scarcely over 5 seconds.

Styling is boosted as well to match the new-found performance. In addition to the upgraded body and engine, the X2 M35i includes a limited-slip differential, a sport-tuned suspension that drops the ride height by 10 millimeters, bigger brakes and adaptive dampers.

No word yet if it will come to Canada or the US but it would be the Mercedes-AMG GLA 45’s only real competition.
