BMW has asserted their plans to bridge the gap between the X1 and the X3 SUVs with the showcase of the Concept X2. Luckily, it isn’t ugly like its bigger siblings, the X4 and the X6 and turns out to be quite a looker with its proportions, angles and sculpted looks.

The large grille, huge vents in the sculpted air dam and a grey treatment to the lower half adds butch to the not-so-big car. The laser headlamps with the X in it gives it the futuristic look. The raked C-pillar, flared wheel arches and the small windscreen in the back gives it a muscular squatted stance.

The BMW X2 will also turn out to be front-wheel drive car and might get four-wheel drive as an option. While the standard four cylinder petrol and diesel engines will certainly be there, the chances of the straight-six Ms getting under the hood seem bleak as of now. But being BMW, they would certainly engineer their way out to get us an X2M.

“The concept displays a new and exciting facet of the BMW brand within the compact segment. The BMW Concept X2 is a vehicle for active people looking for a combination of enjoyment and practicality,” says BMW’s senior VP Adrian van Hooydonk. Looking at the fast turnaround times of product lifecycles, you can expect BMW to start test mules of a production ready car within a year and an unveiling probably in 2018.
