BMW is thought to be cooking up a hot version of the newly revealed X2 SUV, and our exclusive image shows what the BMW X2 M might look like if it gets the green light. It’s expected to produce around 400hp from a 3.0-litre straight-six engine.

Our render shows the X2 M will have a much more aggressive look to it than the standard X2, thanks to a bumper that borrows styling cues from the brilliant M2 coupe. It’ll feature a front splitter that sticks out further than the bumper and much larger air intakes to cool the powerful engine.
Just like the M Sport versions, the X2 M will sit 10mm lower than the standard X2. It’ll also have sporty side skirts, a more prominent rear spoiler, bigger alloy wheels with a different design, and a scattering of M badges.
The X2 M will have much the same interior as the regular X2, with a high-resolution infotainment touchscreen on the centre console. Although you can option the standard car with a strip of coloured plastic across the dashboard, the X2 M will more likely offer carbon-fibre trim instead. There’ll be a sporty steering wheel, contrasting stitching and aluminium pedals, and you’ll be held in place by racy bucket seats.
Engines and driving
If the X2 M makes production, it’ll most likely have the 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine found in the M2. Expect it to produce around 400hp, and you should be able to achieve 35mpg if you’re not driving like your hair’s on fire.
Filling the gap between the hot X2 M and the rest of the range will be an X2 M40i, powered by a 340hp version of the same 3.0-litre twin-turbo engine. Both these versions will be fast enough to propel the X2 M from 0-62mph in under five seconds.
Price and release date
The X2 M hasn’t been confirmed yet, so if it’s green-lit then it won’t be on sale until late-2019 at the earliest. It’ll cost around £45,000.
