It Will Never Happen, But Here's What A BMW X2 M Would Look Like

Rendering

We love looking at sportier versions of cars that may never exist.

BMW has just revealed its latest crossover, the X2. Aimed at millennial buyers, at least according to BMW's press release, BMW wanted to give the X2 a youthful vibe with a bit of the company's signature sporty characteristics. We're usually pretty harsh when it comes to these small crossovers that may as well be hatchbacks, but even we have to admit that BMW kind of nailed it with the styling. The company roundel on the D pillar is one of the coolest styling elements we've seen recently on any BMW model.

The X2 will be a decent crossover, but it's clearly not meant to be the sportiest model in the BMW range. However, it does compete with the Mercedes GLA, which has an AMG version with 385 horsepower. So, what if BMW made an X2 M to rival the GLA 45? Rendering artist, X-Tomi Design, wondered the same thing, and this is what he came up with. The rendering does remind us a bit of the current M2. However, since the X2 shares very little with the 2 Series, we doubt that an X2 M could use the M2's 3.0-liter inline-six engine. We know that BMW wants to build an X3 M, but we doubt that an X2 M would ever be on the table.

BMW is rumored to be working on a new version of the B48, which is a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine found in several smaller BMW models. This new version of the B48 could produce around 300 hp in an X2 M35i. If BMW were to build an X2 M, it would have to pack at least 350 hp to be competitive with Mercedes. It may be unlikely, but we can dream can't we?
