So not long after the debut of the 2018 X3 BMW is gearing up to launch yet another SUV. Well, the new 2018 BMW X2 is more of a compact crossover given its size and proportions, but that still begs the question why do we need so many of these things? And is the difference between an X3 and X2 great enough to justify the existence of both?
In any case, the new X2 will hit the market sometime next year, after it has made its debut at the 2017 IAA, aiming straight at the wallet of compact/urban/active crossover buyers who want something taller and more capable than the ordinary hatchbacks and don’t much care about off-road abilities and on-road performance.

2018 BMW X2 is designed to satisfy the needs of an urban dweller with compact size and small and efficient engines, not to mention up-to-the-minute connectivity and safety features. But because crossover buyers still want some of that rugged SUV look the bigger cars have, the X2 comes with aggressive looking bumpers, fender flares, and some extra bits of plastic that garnish the side skirts and look like protective parts for those sills.
These leaked patent images show the 2018 BMW X2 in its production trim, so we can already say the car is not really a looker. Then again, none of BMW X models are, and yet they always sell like hot cakes with strawberry frosting.
