5 Fast Facts About the First-Ever BMW X2

(Sponsored) The luxury brand rolled out its new model on March 1, 2018, and there’s only one place on the island to go for a test drive.


BMW debuted its latest model nationwide at the beginning of this month, and it’s already turning heads. The first-ever X2 features a body that’s smaller than the X1 and a modern look that fits right in with urbanites. We stopped by BMW of Honolulu, where general manager Tim Palms gave us a first look. Here’s what makes the luxury brand’s newest ride stand out from the rest.


1. Extroverts Welcome




Upon first glance, one thing is clear: This car is for those who want to stand out. The X2’s bold details and sporty aesthetic make it the most extroverted member of the BMW X family.


2. Luxury Standard



Every X2 comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, eight-speed automatic transmission and BMW’s iDrive entertainment system. Just what you’d expect from the luxury car brand.


3. Show and Go


The X2’s front-wheel-drive sDrive28i option and all-wheel-drive iDrive28i option start at $36,400 and $38,400, respectively, making it one of the luxury car brand’s more affordable models. Perfect for the young urban professional with discriminating tastes.


4. Ultimate Care for Your Ride



Buy a new car, drive with peace of mind. Each purchase of an X2 comes with BMW Ultimate Care, which includes scheduled maintenance for the first three years or 36,000 miles, whichever comes first. Owners also get head-to-toe protection for the first four years or 50,000 miles, 12-year coverage for rust perforation and a four-year unlimited mileage roadside assistance program.


5. BMW of Honolulu
