BMW is believed to be formulating a hot variation of the newly exposed X2 SUV, and our exclusive image shows exactly what the BMW X2 M might appear like if it gets the thumbs-up. It’s anticipated to produce around 400hp from a 3.0-litre straight-six engine.
Our render reveals the X2 M will have a far more aggressive planning to it than the standard X2, thanks to a bumper that borrows styling hints from the fantastic M2 coupe. It’ll feature a front splitter that sticks out further than the bumper and much bigger air consumptions to cool the effective engine. Just like the M Sport versions, the X2 M will sit 10mm lower than the basic X2. It’ll likewise have sporty side skirts, a more prominent rear spoiler, bigger alloy wheels with a different style, and a scattering of M badges.
The 2019 BMW X2 M will have much the same interior as the regular X2, with a high-resolution infotainment touchscreen on the centre console. Although you can alternative the basic car with a strip of coloured plastic across the dashboard, the X2 M will most likely deal carbon-fibre trim rather. There’ll be a sporty steering wheel, contrasting sewing and aluminium pedals, and you’ll be kept in place by racy bucket seats.
If the X2 M makes production, it’ll more than likely have the 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine discovered in the M2. Expect it to produce around 400hp, and you should have the ability to attain 35mpg if you’re not driving like your hair’s on fire.
Filling the space in between the hot X2 M and the rest of the variety will be an X2 M40i, powered by a 340hp variation of the very same 3.0-litre twin-turbo engine. Both these versions will be quickly enough to propel the X2 M from 0-62mph in under five seconds.
The 2019 BMW X2 M hasn’t been verified yet, so if it’s green-lit then it will not be on sale till late-2019 at the earliest. It’ll cost around ₤ 45,000.
