The new BMW X2 is the sportier iteration of the X1, but it misses out on the fastback design of the X4 and X6 models. The small crossover is based on the front-wheel-drive UKL platform, but initially, it will be offered in only one trim, the X2 xDrive28i with an all-wheel-drive system.

Powering the new BMW X2 is the 2-litre four-cylinder, turbocharged engine producing 228bhp and 350Nm of torque. The engine is coupled to an 8-speed automatic transmission delivering power to the front biased all-wheel-drive system.

    Technically, the new X2 will be a front-wheel-drive vehicle in normal conditions but will transmit power to all the four wheels when required. For example, if you hit a bad patch of road, the power will be transmitted to all the four wheels accordingly. Thanks to the all-wheel-drive system, the X2 can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 6.3 seconds.

    On the design front, the new X2 is far more stylish and sportier than the X1. The crossover is sharper and sits low and looks dynamic with its aggressive styling. Other prominent highlights of the new X2 are the inverted Kidney grilles and the BMW roundel on the C-pillar, which reminds of the classic BMW coupes.
