BMW could carry yet yet another niche-busting solution to the market in 2017 if a report form a forum is to be believed. According to the BMW X1 Forum of Bimmerpost, 2017 could see the debut of the BMW X2. Yes, X2.
Allegedly, this car will ride on the UKL platform, which is slated to underpin the 2 the up coming-generation Mini Countryman and BMW X1. The X2, however, will perform the position occupied by the X6 relative to the X5 – that means it’;ll be the exact same fundamental motor vehicle with a a lot more sporting (i.e. much less practical) roofline. The denizens of the forum claim the X2 will only be supplied with xDrive all-wheel drive, and in contrast to the X6 and soon-to-arrive X4, it will be accessible in the 2 3 and 5-door variants.
We reached out to BMW for comment, and received the common “There is no strategies as of correct now” statement, even though spokesman Dave Buchko did add that, “It is enjoyable to speculate.”
Honestly, we will not even know what to make of all this. An X2 totally sounds like one thing BMW would do – let’;s maintain in mind we already have a sedan model of a coupe version of a sedan in the form of the 4 Series and 6 Series Gran Coupes. With BMW previously set to offer you a 2 Series Lively Tourer and taking into consideration the modest numbers that the X6 sells in, we’;re left questioning the want for the X2.
