Singapore. BMW Asia and Performance Motors Limited today launched the BMW X2 M Mesh Edition in Singapore. With this special edition, the Sports Activity Coupé (SAC) is introducing an M mesh kidney grille and exclusive new colour combinations, together with an updated front end, to freshen up the premium compact segment once again.
Since its debut in 2018, the BMW X2 has successfully fused an extrovert aura with sporting looks and modern lifestyle features, and carved out a very distinctive place for itself in the BMW X model family and beyond. With its standalone design and exclusive details – such as the additional BMW logo on the C-pillar referencing classic BMW coupés like the 2000 CS and 3.0 CSL – the BMW X2 has earned itself a worldwide fan club. The BMW X2 marks the entry point into the BMW X family of SACs and has a very distinct place in the line-up alongside its larger siblings – the BMW X4 and BMW X6.
The BMW X2 has filled the role of confident urban rebel in impressive style – and now, the athletic BMW X2 M Mesh Edition will use its unique combination of individuality, driving pleasure, lifestyle elements and functionality to appeal to even more active and outgoing customers in the young and young-at-heart target group.
Eye-catching BMW M mesh kidney grille and new colour accents.
The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition builds stylistically on the M Sport X model and gives the BMW X2 an even more exclusive and distinctive appearance. The most prominent change is the BMW M mesh kidney grille in High-gloss Black. Like the grille on the sporty BMW X2 M35i, it has a pronounced three-dimensional mesh inspired by racing cars. The new signature colour Frozen Black-Brown metallic – a mocha-like shade – can be found on the BMW X2 M Mesh Edition in the exclusive inserts in the bumper trim, the prominent cladding on the side skirts and doors, and the wheel arch trim.
The special-edition model can also be specified at no extra cost with bold new decals on the bonnet, the sides of the front bumper, and the front and rear doors. In bold Orange, they provide the perfect complement to the new Brooklyn Grey metallic paint finish exclusive to the BMW X2 M Mesh Edition, as well as the Sapphire Black metallic exterior shade. If one of the other paint shades – Alpine White, Phytonic Blue metallic, or Sunset Orange metallic – is specified, the decals come in Black. The colour of the decals is shared by the inserts for the new 19-inch M aerodynamic wheels.
BMW Individual High-gloss Shadow Line with extended features comes as standard. As well as the High-gloss Black window and exterior mirror surrounds, the mirror base, mirror triangle, B-pillar trim and trim surround on the C-pillars, this package also includes the surround for the M mesh kidney grille, a ring around the BMW badge on the tailgate and exhaust tailpipe finishers in Black Chrome.
LED headlights with integrated bad weather light shape the front end design.
The clear surfacing of the updated front end catches the eye and teams up with the standard LED headlights to create a powerful appearance. The circular front fog lights have been removed, bringing a cleaner design to the front bumper. Their role is taken over by the bad weather light integrated into the LED headlights. In adverse weather conditions and poor visibility, judicious activation of the cornering light provides optimal illumination of the road’s edge. Another new feature is the projection of an X2 logo from the exterior mirror on the driver’s side as part of the standard lighting package, which also includes door handle lighting, ground lighting, exterior mirror lighting, and door entry light.
The visually expressive exterior of the BMW X2 M Mesh Edition extends into the sporty interior. The exclusive covers for the M sport seats with integral head restraints and the rear seat bench feature a blend of Dakota leather in eye-catching Mocha and Anthracite-coloured Alcantara.
The most distinctive feature of the new model is the standard bi-colour interior appointments. Contrast stitching in orange adds a further flourish to the upholstery, instrument panel, and centre console. This creates a colour connection with the decals at the front end and sides of the body, as well as the accents in the exclusive M aerodynamic wheels. The floor mats have edge binding and stitching in Orange. The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition also brings special entry sills with “Edition” lettering.
M sport seats with integral head restraints and a selection of other BMW M GmbH hallmarks heighten the car’s sporting impression. For example, the standard-fitted M stainless steel pedals provide the perfect complement to the M driver’s footrest. Also included as standard are the M leather steering wheel and a car key with exclusive M identifier. The interior trim strips are in Aluminium Hexagon Anthracite, and the BMW Individual headliner in sporty Anthracite. Exclusive LED fibre-optic light guides in the door trim add flourishes of colour.
The cabin showcases BMW’s hallmark driver focus with ergonomically arranged controls. The driver’s raised seating position provides an unbeatable view out and optimal command over the task of driving. The modern black-panel technology in the instrument cluster and information display combines form and function in typical BMW fashion. One example here is the centre console with a combination of open compartments and others that can be closed using roller lids. The boot has a capacity of 470 litres, ensuring it is perfectly equipped for leisure activities of all kinds – from shopping trips to cycling weekends.
Pure driving fun.
The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition is exclusively available in the BMW X2 sDrive18i engine variant. Following updates to comply with the Euro 6d emissions standard, its 1.5-litre three-cylinder unit generates 136 hp and feeds peak torque of 220 Nm to the front wheels via a seven-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission. The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.6 seconds and has a top speed of 205 km/h. The car’s driving responses can be adapted with a simple push of the Driving Experience Control switch, which allows drivers to choose between default COMFORT mode, efficiency-enhancing ECO PRO mode and SPORT mode. The pre-programmed set-up available via SPORT mode gives the car even more dynamic steering and powertrain responses. The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition also has the M Sport suspension fitted as standard, imbuing the SAC with dynamic roadholding characteristics.
Intelligent connectivity and three intuitive methods of operation.
The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition boasts intuitive operation and intelligent connectivity, allowing the person at the wheel to focus their attention entirely on the most important task at hand - driving. The ID6 display and operating concept offers three different ways of operating the individual vehicle and navigation functions; using the iDrive Controller; the Control Display’s touchscreen functionality; or a voice control system capable of understanding naturally formulated sentences.
The freestanding Control Display (which can also be easily operated by the front passenger) measures 8.8 inches across in standard guise and provides a quick overview of all key information – thanks to the tiles shown in the display’s main menu. A hands-free facility with Bluetooth interface and DAB digital radio reception are likewise included as standard. The standard-fitted BMW Navigation system is easy to operate, with its user interface mimicking a smartphone’s intuitive touch control. Along with a 5.7-inch information display in the instrument cluster, the driver has all the information he needs within easy reach. A most advantageous feature is the Real Time Traffic Information, of which up-to-the-minute traffic data helps the driver with route planning and sends alerts on possible hold-ups due to congestion.
Intelligently connected with BMW ConnectedDrive Services.
The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition links up with the BMW ConnectedDrive Services, enabling the driver to organise their daily routines as efficiently as possible, both inside and outside the car. The BMW Connected app and, in future, the My BMW app will keep the driver informed of the vehicle’s status at all times, while they can also access their BMW X2 M Mesh Edition remotely using Remote Services. These functions make it possible to lock and unlock the vehicle via the app, for example, display its current location or send the destination address from a smartphone to the car’s navigation system before even starting the journey. Free vehicle apps available via BMW Online also provide up-to-date weather forecasts or the latest news.
The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition is now available for viewing at the Performance Motors Limited showroom.
