The BMW X2 is a compact crossover that offers a more dynamic and expressive alternative to the conventional X1. For 2024, the X2 has been completely redesigned, featuring sharper and more aggressive styling, a larger and more spacious cabin, and a more powerful and efficient engine lineup. The 2024 BMW X2 also debuts the latest iDrive 9 infotainment system, which promises a more intuitive and personalized user experience. Here are some of the highlights of the all-new BMW X2.
A Bold and Distinctive Design
The 2024 BMW X2 has a striking appearance that sets it apart from its sibling, the BMW X1, as well as from its competitors in the segment. The front end is dominated by a large kidney grille with horizontal slats flanked by slim LED headlights with hexagonal daytime running lights. The bumper features three large air intakes that emphasize the sporty character of the X2. The hood has a prominent power dome that adds to the muscular look of the crossover.
The side profile of the 2024 BMW X2 showcases its coupe-like silhouette, with a sloping roofline, frameless doors, and flush door handles. The wheel arches are pronounced, and house wheels ranging from 18 to 20 inches in diameter. The X2 also has a distinctive Hofmeister kink at the rear window, which is a signature design element of BMW coupes. The rear end of the 2024 BMW X2 is equally eye-catching, with L-shaped LED taillights, a sculpted tailgate, and a diffuser-style lower apron. The X2 M35i xDrive model adds a rear spoiler and four exhaust tips for a more aggressive look.
The 2024 BMW X2 is available in nine exterior colors, including two new ones: Brooklyn Grey metallic and Phytonic Blue metallic. The X2 also offers several styling packages, such as the M Sport package, which adds sportier bumpers, side skirts, wheels, gloss black accents, and an M Sport suspension. The M Sport X package adds Frozen Grey accents and an off-road-inspired look. The M Performance package adds carbon fiber exterior elements and an M Performance steering wheel.
A Roomy and Refined Interior
The interior of the 2024 BMW X2 has been upgraded with more space, comfort, and technology. The dashboard has a minimalist and modern design, featuring a curved display that combines a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 10.25-inch touchscreen for the iDrive 9 system. The iDrive 9 system offers enhanced functionality, customization options, and seamless integration with smartphones and online services. The iDrive 9 system can be controlled by touch, voice, gesture, or the rotary controller on the center console.
The seats of the 2024 BMW X2 are designed to provide optimal support and comfort for the driver and passengers. The standard seats are upholstered in Veganza synthetic leather, which is an animal-free material that offers durability and breathability. The optional sport seats have more lateral support, adjustable bolsters, and Alcantara inserts for a sportier feel. The optional panoramic sunroof adds more light and airiness to the cabin.
The 2024 BMW X2 also offers more space for passengers and cargo than its predecessor. The wheelbase has been extended by 0.9 inches, resulting in more legroom for the rear-seat occupants. The cargo area has also grown from 21.6 cubic feet to 25.3 cubic feet behind the rear seats and from 50.1 cubic feet to 51.7 cubic feet with the rear seats folded down.
