Details of the 2023 BMW X2 crossover revealedJanuary 13, 2021
Bavarian crossover BMW X2 model 2023 will be larger in size and may well get an all-electric version. The X2 will be built on a new modular architecture that uses electric motors and batteries.
The BMW X2 is a sportier and stylish alternative to the X1 and X3 crossovers. Particularly in the top-end M235i, the small crossover offers 301 horsepower, four-wheel drive and aggressive looks. According to insiders, BMW may have a slightly different X2 by 2023.
The new BMW X1 is due to arrive in 2022, while the new X2 could arrive next year with many of the same changes.
We’ve already seen the X1 in spy photos (pictured below) showing its more substantial dimensions. It is known that the new product will be offered with a gasoline, plug-in hybrid and all-electric power plant. The new X1 will use a modular front-wheel-drive architecture (with all-wheel drive available as an option) and, according to Overseas AutoBild, the new X2 should look a lot like the X1.
Expect when the new BMW X2 arrives in 2023 it will be larger than the current model. Both gasoline and plug-in hybrid powertrains should debut on the X2 sooner or later, with the possibility of an all-electric iX2 joining the lineup in the future.
Stylistically, the new X1 and X2 will have larger false radiator grilles, but they will expand horizontally, in contrast to the gaping vertical “nostrils” in the 3rd and 4th series. Spy shots of the X1 show that the new grilles on the two crossovers are likely to expand horizontally rather than vertically. Both crossovers will also get slim LED headlights and larger daytime running lights underneath, similar to what we’ve seen on the X7 crossover prototype.
The new BMW X2 won’t arrive until the end of 2022. As for the new X1, we can see this crossover already this year.
