2024 BMW X2
The 2024 BMW X2 ushers in the second generation of BMW’s compact Sports Activity Coupe (SAC), promising to elevate the premium compact segment with its sophisticated design and advanced technology. With its larger dimensions and pronounced coupe silhouette, the new X2 showcases a leap in development, blending sportiness with a tech-forward interior. The success of its predecessor, with over 380,000 units sold worldwide, sets a high bar for the new X2, which aims to strengthen BMW's position in the compact SUV coupe segment. The vehicle is set for a Canadian market launch in March 2024, with production centered at BMW Group Plant Regensburg, a pioneer in digital and automated automotive production processes.
What’s new about the 2024 BMW X2?
The exterior of the all-new BMW X2 radiates sportiness and individuality. Its increased length and wheelbase, coupled with a wider stance, give it a muscular and confident presence. The design features a dynamic roofline that flows into the rear end, embodying the essence of a BMW Sports Activity Coupe. The front is marked by a hexagonal contour BMW kidney grille and modern twin headlights, emphasizing the car’s width and solidity. At the rear, the flared wheel arches and horizontal lines highlight the vehicle's sporty character.
Unique design elements distinguish the X2 from its siblings. The model-specific headlights, a new rear light design, and the optional illuminated BMW kidney grille (standard on the M35i) underscore its exclusivity. The X2 M35i xDrive performance model further boasts M Sport package enhancements, including aerodynamically optimized details and the option of 21-inch light-alloy wheels, a first for a compact BMW SUV.
The interior of the BMW X2 is a fusion of modernity and spaciousness. It provides increased shoulder, elbow, and knee room, offering comfortable seating for five adults. The interior design echoes the electric BMW iX with a slender instrument panel and the BMW Curved Display, creating a premium ambience with a sporty touch. The use of high-quality materials and precision craftsmanship underscores the vehicle's upscale positioning.
Functionality meets design in the X2’s cabin. Key features include a “floating” armrest with an integrated control panel, the BMW Curved Display for a modern touch, and various trim options for personalization. Seats in the X2 are newly developed for better comfort and support, with optional Sport Seats enhancing the dynamic driving experience. The optional Panoramic Glass Sunroof adds to the premium feel, bringing in natural light and enhancing the interior ambience.
The BMW X2 is at the forefront of automotive technology, featuring the new BMW iDrive with QuickSelect, based on the BMW Operating System 9. This system represents a significant advancement in the display and control/operation system, focusing on touch and voice control via the BMW Curved Display and the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant. The system’s design enhances driver focus and reduces the need for physical buttons and switches.
Connectivity and digital services are central to the X2's appeal. Over-the-air updates keep the vehicle's software current. The BMW Digital Premium offering adds in-car gaming, audio and video streaming, and a selection of casual games through a collaboration with AirConsole, playable via smartphone controllers and the BMW Curved Display.
