Customers will be able to add the all-new BMW X2 small SUV to their garage for under $60K when it arrives in showrooms locally from March.
The luxury crossover will arrive with a single launch variant, the X2 sDrive20i, which will wear a $55,900 asking price.
With a 2.0-litre turbo four-cylinder petrol engine, the sDrive20i sends 141kW and 280Nm to the front wheels via a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission.
The interior is fitted with ‘Alcantara Anthracite cloth’ upholstery as standard, and features a 6.5-inch touchscreen infotainment unit, with an 8.8-inch screen available as an option.
The X2 sDrive20i will come with an M Sport X package, which makes its debut on the X2.
Fitted as standard, the M Sport X package adds contrasting lower exterior cladding, 19-inch alloy wheels, and yellow contrast stitching on interior trim.
Meanwhile a traditional M Sport package is available as a no-cost option, which adds an exterior M Aerodynamics Package, different 19-inch alloy wheels, and blue interior stitching.
The X2 sDrive20i comes with a full suite of safety technology, including active cruise control, parking assistant, and driving assistant featuring speed limit info, lane departure warning, pedestrian warning with city brake activation and forward collision warning.
A number of option packages are available, starting with the Innovations package, costing $2600, while Comfort and Style Plus packages will set customers back $2700 and $3300 respectively.
BMW Australia has so far only confirmed the initial offering, but is considering adding other variants that WhichCar understands includes diesel and all-wheel drive models.
