Now we know what the interior will look like.
Late last year, we caught some spy shots of BMW running the upcoming X2 replacement around the Nurburgring, and now we've spotted it during cold weather testing and got a good look at the interior.
We believe it's an M Performance model due to the sporty wheels and the extended dual pipes at the back. As they're rather unattractive, we assume they're just for testing and will get much more attractive tips for production.
As expected, the interior matches up with the X1. It's unsurprising, as they're essentially the same car with different styling. As this is the more performance-oriented M35i version of the BMW X2, there are sporty seats and an M-branded steering wheel.
Inside, the X2 is expected to feature the BMW's curved display unit, which is becoming standard throughout the brand's range. The center display will likely measure 10.7 inches, while the driver's gauge cluster should be about 10.25 inches. The two-tone seats are heavily bolstered and feature the M division's blue and red colors in the stitching.
Outside, the X2 is moving away from a hatchback design to follow the trend for crossovers having a coupe-style roofline. Expect to see the words "aggressive" and "bold" frequently used in press releases and marketing materials.
Although camouflaged, we can see that the body of the X2 is becoming more streamlined, with flush-mounted door handles. In juxtaposition to that, the spoiler on the M Performance model seems to be more pronounced than usual.
As the X2 is a step up in size from the X1 but rides on the same platform, we expect them to share the same drivetrains. This includes a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces just over 240 horsepower for base models and an upgrade to a little over 300 horsepower for the M35i version.
