BMW has taken the wraps off its latest offerings in the compact premium segment: the revamped BMW X2 and its all-new electric counterpart, the BMW iX2. Both vehicles represent a significant evolution in design, technology, and performance.
The BMW X2 returns with its second-generation model, and it now sports an even bolder design, underscored by its increased dimensions and pronounced coupé silhouette. This design evolution is clearly evident in its exterior, highlighting the vehicle’s growth in terms of length, width, and height. Notably, the new X2’s exterior also offers options like the BMW Iconic Glow contour lighting and Adaptive LED Headlights.
In addition to its design enhancements, the BMW X2 offers a premium interior atmosphere with a blend of sporty touches. A modern instrument panel, which houses the BMW Curved Display, and a “floating” armrest with an integral control panel enhance the cabin’s appeal. Comfort is prioritized, with new seat designs available in various materials, including the Veganza perforated variant and Vernasca leather.
The BMW iX2 stands out as the electric variant of the X2. This model is powered by two integrated drive units, delivering a combined output of 313 horsepower and a torque of 365 lb-ft. of torque. Performance-wise, the iX2 xDrive30 can accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.6 seconds, with a top speed of 180 km/h. Furthermore, its high-voltage battery ensures an impressive range of up to 449 kilometres in the WLTP cycle. The electric model also benefits from features like adaptive recuperation, the MAX RANGE function, and efficient charging capabilities.
For those seeking a performance-oriented model, the BMW X2 M35i xDrive is also available. It boasts M-specific design elements, ensuring a dynamic presence on the road. Powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine, this model can sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 5.4 seconds. The engine is mated to a 7-speed automatic transmission.
In terms of agility and ride comfort, the vehicles’ chassis technology ensures a harmonious balance, per BMW. A combination of weight-reducing body construction, a longer wheelbase, and upgraded axles contribute to this balance. Notably, the new BMW iX2 xDrive30 rides on 17-inch light-alloy wheels, while the BMW X2 M35i xDrive features 20-inch M light-alloy wheels.
To enhance safety and comfort, driver assistance systems are integrated into the new BMW X2.

Lastly, the BMW Operating System 9 and BMW Digital Premium are introduced in the new BMW X2. Features such as the Augmented View function for the BMW Maps navigation system, a Personal eSIM for 5G mobile technology, and smartphone integration further enhance connectivity.
