Lower down the car, X-model features come into play. Muscular surfaces, large wheel arches and stylistic underfloor protection around the door sills form an intriguing contrast with the dynamic elements further up. Wheels are 21-inch light-alloy versions, while tyres with chunky treads point to the potential for fun off the beaten track.
The front-end design of the BMW Concept X2 features a heavily raked windscreen, a newly interpreted double kidney grille and large air intakes – all creating a slow-slung look. The kidney grille is situated a little lower than the headlights, and features heavily angled bars for a “shark nose” effect, bringing additional depth. The central air intake is closer to the road than the two outer intakes, making the centre of the car appear lower, underlining the dynamic verve of the front-end design.
