BMW Philippines, under SMC Asia Car Distributors Corporation (SMCACDC), has launched the attractive, exciting, and extroverted first-ever BMW X2 at the recently concluded BMW Joyfest 2018. With a design oozing individuality from every pore and a sporty suspension set-up, the BMW X2 pushes back boundaries, puts a firework under old habits and brings previously uncharted levels of driving pleasure to this vehicle segment.
“The BMW X2 represents an expression of modern and extrovert vehicle dynamics,” says Adrian van Hooydonk, Senior Vice President BMW Group Design, in describing the First-ever BMW X2. “Its standalone vehicle concept brings a new, fresh and exciting facet of the BMW to the compact segment.”
The X2 has its own unique character, one which stands out positively from the crowd in any setting. Even next to its bigger brothers, the BMW X4 and X6, the BMW X2 makes a wholly distinctive impression. Furthermore, the M Sport X model is available for the first time and allows owners to reflect their unique character even more.
Signature details include wheel arches with a squared-off look to match the standard 19-inch M Light Alloy wheels, striking exhaust tailpipes and accentuated side skirts, not to mention an elegant roofline, slick lines, and slim window graphic.
Three design features, in particular, catch the eye. The X2 turns BMW’s familiar trapezoidal kidney grille form on its head, and it now broadens as it heads south; this is the first time a modern BMW has gone about things this way. In addition, the BMW roundel on the C-pillars references a much loved detail of classical BMW coupes, such as the 2000 CS and 3.0 CSL, highlighting the sporting DNA of the First-ever BMW X2. The First-ever BMW X2 also comes in seven stunning exterior paint shades including two new colours, namely Misano Blue and Galvanic Gold.
Thus, the vehicle appeals to the young and young-at-heart who break with conventions and lead the way. These individuals live in urban areas, lead active lives, and are fully connected with the digital world.
The interior of the X2 blends signature BMW elements, such as a pronounced driver focus and dynamic lines, with the understated ruggedness of a BMW X model. The high-class quality of the this new car and its impressive level of equipment are both instantly apparent.
The interior of the M Sport X model is trimmed in an enticing Micro Hexagon fabric/Alcantara Anthracite combination with contrast stitching. The instrument cluster and large displays bring added flourishes to the interior and act as visual pointers to BMW’s digital expertise. Finally, the standard lighting package allows drivers to set a stylish lighting mood for the interior of their BMW X2 by choosing from the colours Orange, Lilac, Mint, Bronze, Blue and White.
The BMW X2 also offers customers cutting-edge technologies like the Parking Assistant, which is designed to make life easier for the driver, automatically identifying suitable parking spaces and, if desired, taking over steering duties for the parking maneuver. The standard Comfort Access System, which remotely senses the unique BMW key, wherever the driver happens to be carrying it – in the jacket pocket, handbag or briefcase – unlocks the vehicle with a simple touch on the door handle.
The Sports Activity Coupe cuts a dashing figure on every journey, thanks to its peerless BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engine and sophisticated powertrain that produces an output of 190 hp and a maximum torque of 400 Nm. These components team up with the car’s refined chassis to endow it with class-beating handling qualities, exceptional agility and superb feedback, thereby allowing the X2 to generate levels of driving pleasure unprecedented in this segment.
It also comes with the xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive and the eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission to enhance handling and responsive gear shifting. All combinations turn every journey – on any terrain – into an adventure.
The First-ever BMW X2 xDrive20d M Sport X retails at Php 4,390,000.00.
