After the recent launch, we are pretty sure that 2019 BMW X2 will not feature more important changes. As you probably know, the new crossover came just recently, as the 2018-year model. The famous Bavarian carmaker continues with the expansion of its lineup. This time, we saw coupe-like derivate of the company’s famous crossover X1.
The new model is in the same relationship with the subcompact crossover, as X4 is with X3 and X6 is with X5. Two models are same in many aspects and the biggest difference is in body shape. Rest of the design characteristics, including powertrain, interior design, and others, are pretty much the same. The new model came recently, so there is no need for some further modifications at the moment. The 2019 X2 will come without more important changes, but some changes in terms of equipment are possible. Expect its arrival late in the year.
2019 BMW X2 design
Although completely new, this crossover comes with a pretty familiar design philosophy. It is the third body derivate of the brand’s famous odd-numbered crossover. This time, it is a coupe-like version of the subcompact X1. Compared to this model, the new one is a little bit smaller, due to its sloping roofline. The 2019 BMW X2 will continue without changes in this aspect since it is very fresh. Its coupe line is the most distinctive details, but there are some other novelties as well. The company introduced some mild changes on the grille and headlights. So, this could be something that we are probably going to see on other upcoming new models.
