BMW X2 Loses Just About All Camo, Digital Or Otherwise

BMW X2 Loses Just About All Camo, Digital Or Otherwise



Seeing the new BMW X2 almost completely undisguised has been a long time coming.

This prototype, spotted recently on a trailer, still has a little bit of tape left on the taillights, around the rear window and surrounding the kidney grille. Thankfully, there's very little of it and we can pretty much see the whole car in all its splendor.

What we're looking at appears to be more of an entry-level version, missing any sporty or stylish exterior packages as far as we can tell. We are however happy to report that the headlights are just as aggressive as those patent images from last summer indicated they would be.

Another thing worth pointing out with regards to this prototype is that even its BMW logo on the C-pillars is visible - a new and interesting trend that BMW is looking to start, one that might even make it onto other models.

The only thing we want to see now before the X2's full unveiling, are some shots of the interior, although we expect it to mirror its sister model, the X1, in that particular department.

Still, here's to hoping BMW will put the X2 in front of our eyes before the end of the year, something that's beginning to look more probable with each passing prototype spied.

Did BMW partner with Mercedes? Looks an awful lot like a GLA. Not at all what I was expecting or hoping for.

This area does look a little GLAish, the rest of the car not really.  ;)

They seem to trying to be chasing all sorts of varients of all their models, yet the CEO made a statement they weren't spending money on manual transmissions for some cars because they needed to divert money towards their electric car and autonomous programs...

Just quit making all the damn different versions of the same thing and then suddenly they have tons of resources!

As much as I don't like these cars, the initial investment of some new sheetmetal is very cheap. This will prolly cost about the same to make as the X1, but will be more expensive.

But multiply the small investment needed to make the submodel by how many models now?  10 or more now?

I don't understand why people would buy this or the X1, or even the X3 for that matter. Small, impractical, expensive, not particularly good. Makes no sense.

The x1 is kind of nice, though. Itís basically a restyled mink countryman. It also has a roomy interior for being a small car

I'd get the X1 over the HR-V, even at like 2x the price. But yea, CR-V is peak crossover as GTI is peak small car.

Looks like BMW wanted to make a Mazda crossover that doesn't look as good.
