At the heart of the BMW X2 M35i lies a powerful version of the renowned ‘B48’ engine, the first high-performance four-cylinder engine since the iconic E30 M3’s S14 power unit. The 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine produces 225kW and 450Nm of torque, accelerating from 0 to 100km/h in just 4.9 seconds. The eight-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission has Launch Control and gearshift paddles for maximum control. Enhanced chassis harnesses performance.
To maximise the engine’s full potential, the BMW X2 M35i features specifically-tuned M Sport suspension that has been specifically adapted to the X2 M35i’s requirements. This works in harmony with the M Sport steering that creates an agile and precise driving experience.
The intelligent all-wheel-drive xDrive system has been coupled with the M Sport differential, a mechanical limited-slip differential fitted to the front axle to maximise front end grip and minimise torque steer.
The M Sport brakes, with characteristic blue callipers, deliver superior stopping power and are framed by the Double-spoke styled 20-inch light alloy wheels.
