Forget SUVs. They’re so yesterday. What you need is an SAC - a Sports Activity Coupe with agile dynamics, incredible pulling power and a toned torso any athlete would be proud of. Meet the rebellious BMW X2 and available now from Dick Lovett BMW Bath, Bristol, Swindon and Hungerford.
It’s got attitude, looks and can quite happily put its money where its mouth is. It’s packed full of tech and will happily propel you from 0-60mph in just 7.7 seconds if you choose a 2.0 litre sport option.
It’s also available as a coveted BMW M Sport model and there are equally powerful diesel engines, too, with the BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder diesel engine delivering a whopping 400Nm of torque.
The BMW X2 is very much a coupe and sits comfortably alongside the X4 and X6. It’s shorter and lower than the X1 and, to be blunt, it’s sportier, more youthful and a whole heap of fun to drive.
There’s optional all-wheel drive with the BMW xDrive system which gives outstanding traction. This is a rebel with a cause. It’s ready for adventure and will cope with any challenge modern life throws at it, from the daily commute to a weekend foray into the deepest, darkest countryside.
But it loses none of the style and luxury you would expect from a BMW. It might be sporty and youthful to handle, but it’s still refined and there are no half measures when it comes to the interior, either.
The ergonomic driver’s seat puts you firmly at the heart of this beast - if you go for the M Sport or M Sport X try the M leather steering wheel with multifunction and gearshift paddles for an even greater driving experience.
Connectivity is everything in the BMW X2 with BMW ConnectedDrive Services, optional voice and touch controls and an optional, full-colour head-up display which projects key data directly onto the windscreen for a driving experience of the future.
There’s also optional ambient lighting in white, BMW orange, blue, green, bronze or lilac to give the interior a really distinctive look. It might be rebellious, but, boy does it look good while it’s doing it.
The BMW X2 is available from £30,040 so call Dick Lovett BMW Bath, Bristol, Swindon and Hungerford to arrange a test drive and put this nippy new contender through its paces for yourself.
