X2 Marks the Spot


Five months after its international appearance, the all-new BMW X2 has finally made its way to Singapore. This latest addition to the BMW stable looks set to woo young urbanites with its coupe-like profile and offers an alternative to the conventional SUVs or hatchbacks.

Design-wise, the X2 is seen as the sportier sibling of the X1, but it stands out on its own in the X line-up in a way. Take for instance, the distinctive kidney grille; on the X2, it gets inverted – a design element that BMW is putting on a car for the first time. The placement of the brand logo on the C-pillars – typically reserved for BMW coupe – is another unique design cue of the X2.

BMW Asia also introduced the new M Sport X variant, which comes with Frozen Grey wheel arch mouldings, side skirts and bumper inserts.

Behind the wheel, the interior is designed with the driver in mind, with ergonomic controls that can be operated easily. Elevated seating for the driver and passengers provide all-round visibility and an optimum road view.
