2018 BWM X2 xDrive 28i Review – is this BMW’s new rally offering?


2018 BWM X2 xDrive 28i Review – is this BMW’s new rally offering?

This week I drove the new 2018 BMW X2 xDrive 28i. BMW classifies this as a sports activity vehicle which is cool but it’s basically just a small SUV based on the X1 platform but it’s a coupe version of the X1. As well as sharing a platform with the X1 this BMW shares a platform with the Mini Clubman and Countryman and the 1-Series sedan. There are 2 options when it comes to getting your X2 – one would be an X2 sDrive 28i and the other an X2 xDrive28i. The big difference here is that the xDrive is BMW’s all-wheel-drive model and the sDrive is a Front-wheel drive.

If you enjoyed the video, please give me a big thumbs up! Leave me a comment if you have any questions on the X2, or anything else. And thanks for taking the time to watch!

(more on the X2)

One of the things to take note of with the exterior style is these inverted kidney grills. Those inverted kidney grilles create a new look for BMW who’s looking for a fresh take on their iconic design. Up front, you get LED headlights with cornering lights as well as LED fog lights. I think the wheels really look good on this vehicle as well. On standard trims, you get an 18-inch wheel but can also get a 19-inch like the ones our tester is rocking. You also get a throwback badge on the C-pillar as you wouldn’t want anyone to mistake this compact SUV as anything but a BMW.

Under the hood
No matter what trim you choose, under the hood, you’ll get a 2.0-liter TwinPower turbo 4-cylinder engine. That’s good for 228-hp and 258-lb-ft of torque pushed through an 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission. The AWD trim should get you from 0-60 in 6.3-seconds and the front wheel drive version in 6.6-seconds. To keep this up and running, you should always keep it in top shape. Bring it to a shop just like this bmw performance shop.
