Spotted undergoing winter testing in Sweden last year, the upcoming BMW X2 has now been sighted running trials at the Nurburgring. As reported earlier, the upcoming X2 will slot into the gap between the X1 and the X3, and will essentially be a ‘coupe’ version of the F48 X1.

The X2 adopts the sleeker roofline from the Concept X2 unveiled at last year’s Paris Motor Show, and it also follows the naming convention of even numbers for the coupe range of X models, which includes the X4 and the X6.

Both front- and all-wheel-drive powertrain layouts are expected with the upcoming X2, which will sit on the UKL platform that already underpins the current X1 as well as the 2 Series Gran Tourer and the 2 Series Active Tourer. In line with this, the X2 can be expected to reach production with a range of three- and four-cylinder engines from the current BMW Group line-up.

As before, the BMW X2’s interior hasn’t been properly seen yet, however it can be expected to adopt similar architecture from the X1, given their platform similarities.
