BMW X2 M35i debuts new 235kW turbo four

BMW’s most powerful 2.0-litre turbo petrol engine is making first application in the new X2 M35i – the new range-topping model of the X2 line-up.

Delivering 225kW of power and 450Nm of torque, the new turbo four-pot joins the brand’s 3.0-litre turbo straight-six engine in the M Performance family of high-output powerplants.

The X2 M35i comes as standard with BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive technology in conjunction with the 8-speed automatic transmission with specific M Performance tuning.

The BMW X2 M35i is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h in just 4.9 seconds and has a combined fuel consumption of 8.1L/100km.

In addition to the more powerful engine, the X2 M35i comes as standard with the M Sport suspension with a stiffer spring and damper setting as well as vehicle lowering.

The rear axle construction has been redesigned while the brakes have been upgraded to M Performance stoppers.

Visually, the X2 M35i is differentiated from the rest of the line-up by the Cerium Grey finish for the double kidney grille, air cooling inlets and exterior mirror caps. The rear of the X2 M35i is characterised by the standard M rear spoiler and two specially designed exhaust tailpipes, which also come in Cerium Grey.

19-inch M Sport light alloy wheels in 715M styling (optional: 20-inch M Sport light alloy wheels in 721M styling and in Cerium Grey bicolour) impressively round off the exterior design features.

Inside, the X2 M35i features as standard an M Sport leather steering wheel with shift paddles and door entry trims at the front bearing the lettering “M35i”.

For the first time, exclusive M sports seats are available as an option, ensuring perfect seating comfort and lateral support.

The BMW X2 M35i goes on sale in early 2019.
