Yet another baby SUV – BMW X2

BMW has created yet another niche in its SUV lineup with an all-new model – the X2. Slotting in between, how did you guess, the X1 and X3, the X2 is what BMW is calling a “Sports Activity Coupe”. Equipped with their now signature lineup of small-but-efficient turbo motors and xDrive all-wheel drive (as well as front wheel drive on basic models), the X2 is billed as a drivers' car, both on and off-road.

Based on the MINI Countryman's platform, the X2 is sleeker and lower than other SUVs or crossovers in BMW's range – with none of the off-road ability being sacrificed. There are two petrol and two diesel motors on offer, although we're likely to be restricted to the FWD1.5 litre 3 cylinder turbo motor in Bangladesh. We might get the AWD diesel model as well, equipped with a 2.0 litre 4-cylinder.

It's quite the looker as well, with curves in all the right places and a youthful, sunny disposition that's sure to make it a hit with the younger crowd it targets. The grey side-cladding, which would be considered cheap and distasteful if it was on any other brand, gives it a tough and capable demeanourand tries to tell people it's ready to play in an urban, or otherwise environment.

It's by far the best looking BMW in the X-series, and as a marketing exercise it works miles better than the scarcely believable PR-talk that revolves around the hateful existence of the X4 and X6. We'll make sure to be there to test the X2 when it gets here.
