Exterior Design and TrimThe BMW X2 blends the renowned presence of the BMW X model looks with that of a coupe, resulting in an athletic yet elegant amalgamation of style.
Upfront, the iconic BMW kidney grilles make the BMW X2 easily recognisable as a BMW model. Finished in high-gloss black with chrome surround, they give the front of the car a sharp appearance. The X2 is available from launch with four trim levels. SE, Sport, M Sport and the range-topping M Sport X. From the Sport onward, each trim is an enhancement of the standard SE model's style and specification, yet all variants come as standard with xDrive intelligent four-wheel drive.
The BMW X2 boasts 17-inch alloy wheels, front foglights, shark fin aerial, multi-part front and rear bumpers along with body coloured door mirrors, handles and prominent arch and side skirt detailing all as standard. This blends in body coloured detailing further up the range, with the M Sport X adding enhanced aerodynamic body styling, along with Satin Aluminium exterior trim and Matt Aluminium roof rails. Each trim level of the BMW X2 comprises of dual exhaust tailpipes, finished in chrome. Alloy wheels of up to 20-inch are also available, dependant on trim level.
The youthful BMW X2 breaks the rules, too. As well as the commonplace BMW motif appearing on the front and rear of the car, the BMW X2 proudly displays a further pair on each C pillar - next to the famous Hofmeister kink.
Interior DesignIn true BMW style, the classy exterior of the BMW X2 is mirrored within the interior too, via the use of high-quality leather and fabrics used throughout. In an elegant approach to make the BMW X2 all about the details, accent trim strips transition the BMW X2's instrument panel to the rear of the car. Gloss black detailing is used on the dashboard and centre console to accentuate the impressive details and fine quality.
There is also a unique opportunity to specify high-quality upholstery options such as the 'Micro Hexagon' / Alcantara design with yellow contrast stitching, which happens to be an exclusive option with the M Sport and M Sport X models.
