2019 BMW X2 First Drive

Firstly made as a sportier alternative to the BMW X1 lineup, the 2019 BMW X2 is using the same mechanics, such as engine, transmission and all-wheel-drive setup. However, the styling is unique and driving is much different and the upcoming X2 is ready to compete with its rivals like Infiniti QX30, Audi Q3, and Mercedes-Benz GLA.

The exterior looks sharp and the price is very reasonable. This compact crossover-SUV really looks sporty and luxury and is also fun to drive.

2019 BMW X2 has Futuristic Front Fascia

The exterior of the all-new 2019 BMW X2 is a perfect combination of sharpness and sleek lines. This is the proof that adding bulk roofline is unnecessary and X2 looks sporty even without that. We must mention that the X2 model is the first model that features a BMW logo on the rear pillar. Last time that happened is on BMW CSi model all the way back in the 1970s.

The hatch design doesn’t look sloppy like on X4 or X6 models, end everything on this SUV is nice and subtle. We couldn’t find a single thing that makes us wonder how or why is this made. Up front, new X2 sports a more aggressive bumper with bigger air vents onto the sides. Everything on the exterior is bigger to be exact, so the front grille is also larger as a result, and will feature a BMW logo.

Interior is more Elegant with plenty of space

As we mentioned, the forthcoming 2019 BMW X2 share a lot with the X1 model, and the interior is a good proof for that. The dashboard, center console, and even the iDrive display are exactly the same. On the other hand, the room is a huge difference. The front seats are very comfortable, while the rear passengers will suffer thanks to decreased legroom and headroom. This is not so bad for BMW having in mind that the Mercedes GLA offers the same room.

Cargo area is decent, but under a floor panel, extra storage space can be found. With all been told, 2019 X2 is a comfortable model with very quiet cabin and the whole interior is luxurious. Rear visibility is not a thing BMW should brag about, so customers will have to use a full advantage of parking sensors and backup camera.

The front of this SUV is also enhanced by the large air intakes, more sculpted bumper, LED lights, sports suspension, plus extensive off-road body cladding. As from the side of the SUV, one can easily spot the flared fenders that house a 17-inch alloys wheels. Furthermore, we will also see some carbon fiber use like in most of M performance cars.

As for the interior of the new 2019 BMW X2M, it will get better sports seats and steering wheel with M logo on it. Also, we will see the three-zone climate control, automatic bootlid, and better and bigger 6.5-inch screen with satellite navigation. On the dashboard, we will also see the elephantine-patterned plastics and brightly colored stitching.
