Sportier and sleeker in style, but the 2670mm wheelbase easily reveals that the BMW X2 is a close relative of the X1 and the MINI Countryman. It’s built on the same cross-engined, basically front-wheel-drive platform, but with a different character. The X1 is practical, the Countryman is lovely minis, and the X2 is cool. This is further emphasized in the M Mesh Edition package.

Brooklyn’s gray metallic paintwork has been complemented with orange décor and high-gloss black (Shadow Line) elements such as a laced pattern grille or a frame of BMW logos on the tailgate. A novelty is the 19-inch (optionally 20-inch) aerodynamic M wheel set, scared with a little orange. The insert on the side of the X2 and on the wheel arches, on the other hand, is dark brown harmonizing with the interior.

As I mentioned, the cabin gets brown leather upholstery, the sports seats and the dashboard are sewn with orange thread. It is tossed with an anthracite-colored aluminum insert and black rugs carved with orange. The style package is available for any engine, so the X2 M Mesh Edition can be a 136-horsepower, front-wheel petrol (sDrive18i) or just a 231-horsepower, all-wheel-drive diesel (xDrive25d), or even a plug-in hybrid (xDrive25e).
