Considering the recent launch, there is no doubt that the 2019 BMW X2 with pretty much same design characteristics, without too many changes and novelties. This small crossover came as an all-new model last year and it is the third coupe-like crossover in the BMW’s lineup now.
This time, we are seeing a model based on the smallest X1 SUV, which you are probably familiar with. Still, there are some minor styling tweaks, even at the front end, where this one gets slightly upgraded stance. For the next year, we probably won’t see to many changes.
The 2019 BMW X2 should continue in a familiar way, featuring same design and most of the characteristics. Still, expect to see few novelties in terms of standard equipment. Also, some reports suggest a hi-performance version, with more power and chassis upgrades.
2019 BMW X2 Redesign
In terms of base design characteristics, there is definitely no space for too many novelties at the moment. The 2019 BMW X2 will definitely continue in the same design, featuring the same shape, styling solutions etc. Still, there is a chance to see few more colors in the offer. Rest of the vehicle will remain unchanged. The 2019 BMW X2 specs will remain the same, while the coupe-like, sloping roof won’t suffer a single touch.
2019 BMW X2 Interior
This is another aspect of the 2019 BMW X2 that won’t suffer almost any change. Once again, it heavily relies on the X1 model. Two models feature pretty much the same dashboard layout, as well as the rest of the cabin. So, count on hi-quality materials, soft-touch plastics and lots of gadgetry. Still, this one is less practical, due to its coupe-like shape. It also features a capacity for five passengers, though the rear bench seems pretty tight.
On the other side, front seats are pretty generous for the class, so even tallest drivers won’t have problems to fit in this one. Another weak point of this crossover is cargo area. It offers pretty decent 21 cubic feet behind rear seats, but its uncommon shape definitely won’t let you put some bigger object inside. Once you fold rear seats, you can count 50 cubic feet.
2019 BMW X2 Trim Levels
The base trim level organization will remain the same on the 2019 BMW X2. There are two trims in the offer, depending on the layout. The sDrive28i stands for the FWD, while the xDrive28i comes with the AWD. Still, both trims come with the pretty much same list of standard equipment. So, you can count on things like 18-inch wheels, LED headlights and foglights, power tailgate, automatic wipers etc. On the inside, you can count on things like leather-wrapped steering wheel, dual-zone climate control, simulated leather upholstery, 6.5-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth, USB, HD radio, ambient lighting, 7-speaker audio system and much more.
Besides lots of standard equipment, there is also a choice of several optional packages. For example, there is a Convenience package, which seems perfect for those who want more comfort. It includes things like a panoramic sunroof, satellite radio, automatic lumbar support and much more. Also, there is a Premium package, which brings things to the whole new level. Some of the highlights are things like heated seats, heated steering wheel, 8.8-inch touchscreen, navigation, head-up display etc.
There is also a package called MSportX, and it includes things like bigger wheels, sport-tuned suspension, sport-tuned transmission, and similar things. Adaptive dampers are optional. Finally, there is a Driver Assistance package, with lots of safety systems, such as automatic high-beam control, lane departure warning, and forward collision warning with low-speed automatic emergency braking.
2019 BMW X2 Engines
Base models of this small crossover will definitely continue with the same 2.0-liter turbo inline-four gasoline engine. This unit is good for about 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque and it comes paired with an 8-speed automatic transmission. Such numbers definitely guarantee strong acceleration and overall performances. Moreover, you can count on good mpg ratings as well. This version returns around 23 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway.
Various reports suggest that a hi-performance version could come next year. This should be the same M35i model that is already available in Europe, which delivers 302 horsepower and 332 pound-feet of torque. Finally, European drivers will once again have an efficient diesel engine in the offer as well. It is a familiar 2.0-liter unit that comes in several output variants, from 150 to 230 hp.
2019 BMW X2 Release Date and Price
Considering that there are no bigger changes planned for the next year, we expect to see the upcoming model late in the year. The 2019 BMW X2 price should remain pretty much the same, which means around 38.000 dollars for the base model. Main competitors will models like Mercedes-Benz GLA, Volvo XC40, Infiniti QX30, and others.
