Stunningly pretty, the new BMW X2 is here to show us that the future will be amazing.
BMW enjoys carving niche brackets in their vast portfolio of cars. They believed they could build a crossover of an SUV and a coupe to create a completely new genre of cars. The result is the BMW X6, a sportier version of the X5; and the X4 which as you could guess, the sportier version of the X3. Sadly, both the X6 and X4 failed to set the bar very high. They never appealed to the eye and were thoroughly confused cars. The Bavarians have however struck gold with the new BMW X2 Concept and we are mesmerised.
The BMW X2 Concept is truly beautiful to behold. The handsome chrome plated kidney grille complements the shark eye headlamp housing, that is illuminated by the LED DRLs. The crossover silhouette is proportionate and bestows a sense of grace and elegance on a rather muscular car.
The roofline is pleasing and slopes to connect with the raised rear windshield. The single piece LED cluster on the tail lamp is pure BMW perfection. Even the protective cladding on the wheel arches and front and rear bumpers are bespoke and pleasing to the eye.
BMW’s chief designer Karim Habib explains that the X2 perfectly combines the fast-moving body language and low-slung proportions of a coupe, and the robust construction that is typical of a BMW X model. The X2 Concept delicately balances beauty and aggression, making it one of the prettiest Concepts at the Paris Motor Show.
Technical details on the X2 Concept are minimal. From what we understand, it would be sharing the handsome X1’s platform and a delightful range of efficient motors. What’s more, is that we could expect an M model with a more powerful turbocharged straight-six. Exciting prospects for the future!
BMW has definitely grabbed the limelight with this new sophisticated and intelligently designed concept. Interestingly, it is the first coupe SUV crossover that is truly exciting to look at it. The Bavarians have put the dreary nonsense behind and are spearheading forward to grab attention the world over. We hope the production model turns out just as pretty and charming. What are your thoughts on this new concept?
