[Sponsored Report] BMW takes the wraps off new X2 sport coupe
For the first time in a modern BMW, the new X2 includes the BMW roundel on the C-pillars. The outline of its kidney grille is wider at its base than the top, the iconic BMW look.
The three powertrain options are all twin turbo engines. The xDrive20i, a gasoline model, has a seven-speed sport automatic double-clutch transmission with maximum output of 192 horsepower. The xDrive20d is a diesel model with 190 horsepower, and the xDrive25d is a stronger diesel model with 231 horsepower. Both diesel models come with an eight-speed sport automatic transmission.
The automaker plans to add new powertrains next year, including a three-cylinder sDrive18i engine, a four-cylinder engine xDrive20i and an sDrive18d.
The sporty suspension of the new X2 backs up the delicate agility and strong power of BMW’s driving system. The standard model comes with M sports suspension that includes a stronger spring and a damper setting. Drivers can customize suspension through the vehicle’s “Dynamic Damper Control.”
Aside from these features, the new X2 can automatically recognize appropriate parking spots, and a “Parking Assistant” feature can aid the driver in parallel parking.
BMW plans to release the new X2 to the global market in March 2018.
