Introducing the first four-cylinder M Performance engine.

At the heart of the BMW X2 M35i lies a powerful version of the latest generation TwinPower Turbo petrol engines, the first high-performance four-cylinder engine since the iconic BMW E30 M3 power unit.


The 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine produces 225kW of power and 450Nm of torque, allowing the BMW X2 M35i to accelerate from 0-100km/h in an impressive 4.9 seconds.


The eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission in complete with Launch Control and offers the driver gearshift paddles for maximum control.


Enhanced chassis harnesses performance.

To maximise the engine’s full potential, the BMW X2 M35i features specifically-tuned M Sport suspension that has been adapted to the BMW X2 M35i’s exact requirements.  This works in harmony with the M-tuned sports steering that creates an agile and precise driving experience.


The intelligent all-wheel-drive xDrive system has been coupled with the M Sport differential, a mechanical limited-slip differential fitted to the front axle to maximise front end grip and minimise torque steer.


The M Sport brakes, with characteristic blue callipers, deliver superior stopping power and are framed by the Double-spoke styled 20-inch light alloy wheels.


Exterior BMW design features heighten the modern, sporty aesthetic.

BMW X2 M35i’s distinctive exterior design contains key design elements that highlight its sporting stance.


The specific M Aerodynamics package combines black high-gloss details with specific body trim components finished in the signature M Performance hue – Cerium Grey.


A low slung roof, powerful shoulder line, ‘tucked’ glass house and integrated rear spoiler structure the rear view of the car.


Two specifically designed exhaust pipes finished in Cerium Grey, each measuring a considerable 100mm in diameter, commands on-road presence and exudes power.


Performance without compromise on comfort.

Entering the cabin, the prominent ‘M35i’ adorned door sill finishers further set the sporty theme.


New M Sport seats, featuring integrated headrests and electric seat adjustment, come in a variety of upholsteries and offer superior lateral support for both driver and passenger.

CO2 emission information.

The following applies to consumption figures for vehicles with new type approval, September 2017 onward: The figures for fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and energy consumption are obtained in accordance with the specified measuring procedure (EC Regulation No. 715/2007), as issued and amended. The figures are for a basic-version vehicle in Germany. The bandwidths allow for differences in the choice of wheel and tire sizes and items of optional equipment and can be changed by the configuration.

Obtained on the basis of the new "Worldwide harmonized Light vehicles Test Procedure" (WLTP), the figures are converted back to the "New European Driving Cycle" (NEDC) for the sake of comparability. Values other than those stated here may be used for the purposes of taxation and for other vehicle-related duties relating to CO2 emissions.

More information about official fuel consumption figures and the official specific CO2 emissions of new passenger cars can be obtained from the "guideline on fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and current consumption of new passenger cars", available here:
