How Do They Do It: 2018 BMW X2

@ March 02, 2018

In this episode we visit the BMW AG Plant in Regensburg, Germany, to see how the 2018 BMW X2 is produced.

The 2018 X2 is the first modern BMW to feature a wider grille (the "kidney" grille), and it gives the new car a broader, even more distinctive and sportier appearance. Below the grille, the hexagonal surface treatment in the bumper further reinforces this impression.

The BMW X2 has a poised on-road stance thanks to large wheels and a striking wheel rim design. The M Sport and M Sport X models are available with wheels in sizes up to 20 inches – a standout feature in this vehicle segment

The BMW X2 has a broad, planted stance on the road, especially when viewed from the rear. Creating this impression of width are the horizontal design lines and distinctive rear bumper. The latter’s design will vary depending on the car’s specification. On the standard car, it comes in the vehicle colour and matt black. The BMW X2 M Sport features a diffuser-look cladding inlay in Dark Shadow metallic. The BMW X2 M Sport X, meanwhile, gets a bespoke diffusor insert in the contrast colour Frozen Grey. On all models, the new rear bumper and tailgate design sees the latter sitting flush with the rear apron. And that gives the rear end a supremely harmonious feel.

One of the ways the BMW X2 expresses the inherent power of its BMW TwinPower Turbo engines is through the design of the tailpipes. Depending on the engine specified, the X2 may come with a single or twin arrangement. The tailpipes are 90 mm in diameter.

The design of the BMW X2’s headlights reinforces its striking, sporty looks. Familiar twin circular elements (including LED daytime driving lights) combine with the foglamps to create the characteristic six-eyed face of the X family and make the vehicle instantly recognisable. Because the inner headlights are slightly narrower than the outer ones, the BMW X2 assumes a tangible air of concentration and dynamism. Moreover, shiny chrome surfaces add a highquality touch while a chrome bar at the outer edges enhances the impression of width.

Full-LED headlights are available as an option for the BMW X2. The bi-LED light for low beam and high beam is extremely bright and effective at illuminating the road, while also accentuating the BMW X2’s sporty looks particularly impressively. The headlights display fine detailing, achieved in part through hexagonal LED daytime driving light tubes and laser engraving.
