We’re pretty sure the Bavarian crossover didn’t catch a flight discount for a quick city break around the famous Italian town – even though it did dress up as if it came directly from a hunt.
The automotive brands have made a habit out of taking out their pre-production models out for a spin – and a photo shoot – well before the intended release, which is also why they’re sporting the usual, dizzying camouflage pattern. On this occasion the BMW X2 dressed up in a digital camo suit, getting ready to share the platform with the X1 but presenting itself as the stylish, coupe-SUV alternative. The BMW X2 comes to solidify the company’s presence in the premium compact crossover segment, and decided to hit the venues of the Milan Fashion Week.
As far as we can tell, the shape has reached production status, with all design cues in place and quite visible even if dressed up in this distinctive attire. The shades – yellow, gray, black, and bluish blocks – area actually used to highlight the design, rather than hiding the styling. The production X2 is also much closer to the X1 compared to the previewing concept, the former also donating the front-wheel drive architecture – on its turn also used for models in the Mini brand. The fashionable coupe-SUV hasn’t bowed in Frankfurt this month, so we’re pretty sure it will reach the American public first, with a possible premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in December.
