4 Things the BMW X2 Boss Loves About the New Crossover

The 2019 BMW X2 debuted at the 2018 Detroit Auto Show and the newest addition to the company’s growing lineup of crossovers has a few tricks up its sleeve.

Julius Schluppkotten, Head of Project for the BMW X2, already drives a 2019 BMW X2 as his personal vehicle and listed four unique qualities of the car that he loves.

Driving Dynamics

Front passenger seat height has been lowered by 20 mm from the X1 and the X2 lets passengers in the vehicle experience cornering in a more dynamic way and increases engagement for both drivers and passengers. Of course, it’s a BMW, so engaging driving dynamics are present here.

Customizable Interior Lighting

Available on higher level trims, there is a six-color interior ambient lighting option that gives the car’s interior a certain flair depending on your mood and resulting color choice. The light piping runs the length of the dashboard and tastefully tapers off as it approaches the door interior trim.

Better Utility

The BMW X2, unlike the X4 and X6, ditches an aggressively sloped roofline in favor of more utility. It still retains an aggressive profile but offers less compromise as far as utility is concerned.

Great Design

Even from a far distance, Schluppkotten notes that the X2’s proportions stand out. Schluppkotten likens this to spotting a unique jacket or piece of clothing and knowing by instinct that it will be a perfect fit before even trying it on. This is one reason why the X2’s design theme was not tinkered with too much during the development process, according to Schluppkotten.
