2024 BMW X2 Rendered Accurately After New Spy Photos

Posted on

Launched in June last year, the BMW X1 will soon be joined by (It can be said that) more stylish brother. The X2 2024 is currently being developed on the same platform as the X1 and recently, our photographers captured a prototype of the crossover testing around Munich in Germany. The test car has slightly less camouflage than all previous test vehicles, which provides enough material for our friends in Kolesa.ru to produce this exclusive and (to our eyes) very accurate rendering of the model.

Much like the first-generation X2, the new crossover will feature a similar front fascia to the X1, although there will be certain elements unique to the even-numbered model. The kidney grille, for example, has a distinct shape with a central section that extends toward the bumper. If these renderings are realistic enough, the bumper design will also be very different with the diagonal slats and large side air openings. It’s a familiar theme from the X1 but in this variant it’s much more aggressive.

It’s more difficult to predict what will happen at the back. Kolesa.ru proposes an overall design reminiscent of the current X4 featuring large C-shaped taillights with sharp elements protruding into the trunk lid. The rear bumper, again, follows a similar styling to the X1 but with more prominent and aggressive aero elements, including a center diffuser. The biggest difference compared to the new X1, however, will surely be the roofline, which will change from the X1’s boxy shape to the X2’s sloping profile.

While the two models are visually very different, they will be identical under the skin. BMW’s FAAR platform underpins both cars, featuring three- and four-cylinder engines and a potential electric version. The highest combustion power model will go by the M35i or M40i name and will feature a 2.0-liter turbocharged engine under the hood. Great for over 300 horsepower, it will send power to all four wheels.
