Singapore. Continuing from the successful launch of the first-ever BMW X2 in 2018, BMW Asia and Performance Munich Autos today announced the availability of the new BMW X2 M35i. This sees the extrovert design of the Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) link up with an extremely powerful four-cylinder petrol engine, thereby crowning the new BMW X2 M35i as the flagship model in the compact SAC’s line-up.
Outstanding driving dynamics thanks to M-specific tuning.
As the letter M in the type designation clearly symbolises, the new BMW X2 M35i possesses the impressive dynamic handling qualities of an M Performance Automobile. The new 2.0-litre unit with M TwinPower Turbo technology from BMW M GmbH is the first-ever M Performance four-cylinder engine – it generates a formidable 306 hp of power and a peak torque of 450 Nm from just 1,750 rpm (up to 4,500 rpm). This allows the new BMW X2 M35i to sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in a flat 4.9 seconds. To ensure that this sheer power is securely transferred to the tarmac, the new BMW X2 M35i comes with an eight speed Steptronic Sport transmission including Launch Control and BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive as standard.
A particularly special highlight on the new BMW X2 M35i is the installation of the M Sport Differential in the front axle gear – this marks the premiere of this feature on an M Performance Automobile. During highly dynamic driving manoeuvres, this locking differential most effectively reduces possible traction losses on the front wheels. The rear axle construction has been redesigned, and the braking system has been upgraded for use on the new BMW X2 M35i: the M Sport braking system with fixed callipers in Dark Blue metallic and 18-inch steel discs at the front (17-inch at the rear) guarantees consistently short braking distances even under the highest loads. Both steering and suspension have also been specifically tuned and adapted to match the high performance of the drive system – the M sports steering conveys to the driver an impressively direct and precise steering feel, while the adaptive suspension offering two manually adjustable modes maximises sportiness and driving comfort.
Upgraded exterior and interior design.
The new BMW X2 M35i’s sporty demeanour is reflected in an exciting exterior design that is based on the X2 M Sport Package with numerous typical M Performance Automobile elements finished in Cerium Grey. This begins at the front with full HD technology for the main headlights and fog lights, and continues with the double kidney grille in Cerium Grey. The newly-designed side air intakes and exterior mirror caps are also finished in this unique shade. At the rear, the new BMW X2 M35i features a distinctive M rear spoiler and M Sport exhaust system with two tailpipes (each 100 mm in diameter). Thanks to the adapted silencer system, the exhaust system produces a particularly sporty sound spectrum. 19" M light alloy wheels Double-spoke style 715 M then round off the exterior design features.
The athletic vibe is continued in the interior – the door entry trims at the front bear the ‘M35i’ lettering, and the driver’s eyes will immediately be captured by the M Sport leather steering wheel with shift paddles. The M sports seats at the front are a novelty, too – not only do they offer perfect lateral support for both driver and front passenger in sharp bends, they also ensure the highest level of comfort and safety through integrated headrests. All passengers in the new BMW X2 M35i will enjoy the ‘Dakota’ perforated leather upholstery, together with interior trim finishing in Aluminium Hexagon with Blue matt highlights. As an alternative, the interior trim finishers can be specified with Pearl Chrome highlights or in Anthracite style. Matching seatbelts in an M design are also available.
The new BMW X2 M35i also demonstrates BMW’s trend-setting digital competence in the areas of operation and networking. For example, the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display offers a display range that is unprecedented in this vehicle segment. The suite of ConnectedDrive services include Real Time Traffic Information, Concierge Services, as well as Remote Services for the greatest ease of use and convenience for all on board.
This sporty SAC also offers a wide range of driver assistance systems. For example, the Park Distance Control system (available in the front and rear) as well as the rear view camera help making precise and comfortable manoeuvring that much easier. The Parking Assistant is likewise available as standard to make manoeuvring into tight parallel parking spots a breeze. For the first time in the BMW X2 range, the Driving Assistant is available as standard on the new BMW X2 M35i – this package includes Lane Departure Warning, Speed Limit Info with No Passing Info display, High Beam Assistant, Collision Warning, and Pedestrian Warning with City Braking function.
The new BMW X2 M35i is now available for viewing at the Performance Munich Autos showroom.
