The BMW X2 was the first of the new segment of Sports Activity Coupés to hit the market, effectively creating the segment, according to BMW. The body style is basically a shrunken-down version of an SUV that has the unfortunate acronym of SAC. “Hey, what do you drive?” “Me, oh yeah, I have a red SAC”. Just rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it? The car did prove hugely successful though, so much so that a second generation has just been released and it’s a proper stunner of a SAC. The changes from the previous generation see the X2 looking a bit more angular while retaining the current BMW design architecture. The large kidney grille is in play, but on this body style, the dimensions of it just work. The grille isn’t as large as on the M3 and M4 though, luckily. It’s still compact when compared to the X3 and the other X siblings. But it does feature significantly larger dimensions and a pronounced coupé silhouette. It’s the right size to offer up great performance, we’d rather drive one of these at 10/10ths than any of its larger siblings. Sure any of them with an M badge on are stupendously fast, but shifting such a big body with so much weight just doesn’t feel right. There are four models in the lineup; the sDrive18d, the sDrive20i, the electric iX2xDrive30, and the one we’re heading to the online configurator to mess around with, the M35i xDrive. Well, until a real M version comes along, which is quite likely.
Take a look at the YouTube video that shows off the all-new BMW X2 range, the Baravian automaker's new foray into the increasingly popular Sports Activity Coupé segment. There are a few really good-looking models in the lineup, but as expected we're only interested in the one that's the fastest and most powerful. It's just how we are.
