The German automaker, BMW is working on another member of the much-acclaimed ‘X’ family from quite a long time. To compete the new Audi Q2, BMW X2 is gearing up for the real world conditions and has been spied testing in full camouflage. The BMW X2 will be the third Sports Activity Coupe after the BMW X6 and BMW X4 but, will be positioned between X1 and X3. The competitors are likely to be the Audi Q2, and Range Rover Evoque. The production version is expected to be ready by next year or early 2018.

Looking at the spied image, the X2’s roofline looks quite subtle. The big tailgate spoiler, steeply raked black glass, gives it hatchback look but, the roofline shape makes it stand in the Sports Activity Coupe segment, as claimed by the company. The BMW X2 will be sharing the MINI platform, UKL front-wheel and is expected to have a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder, and 1.5-litre turbocharged three-cylinder engine options. Though the engine choices will vary according to the respective market. Both the engines will be mated to either a 6-speed automatic or 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission with xDrive all-wheel drive system.
