BMW has announced the newest member of the X2 Sports Activity Coupe family, the 2019 X2 M35i.
The new 2019 BMW X2 M35i featuring a 302 hp 2.0-litre TwinPower turbocharged engine sets a new benchmark in four-cylinder power and torque delivery for the BMW brand.
To ensure that this power is securely transferred to the tarmac, the 2019 BMW X2 M35i comes standard with xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive technology in conjunction with the eight-speed sport automatic transmission including Launch Control.
For the first time ever, a front axle BMW M Sport Differential makes its appearance and features Torsen-based limited slip capabilities with up to a 39 per cent lock-up. The new M Sport differential is integrated into the eight-speed automatic transmission which itself features steering wheel shift paddles, M Performance specific tuning, additional transmission cooling and updated gear ratios. The BMW X2 M35i is capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.9 seconds.
A special technical highlight – and also a premiere for an M Performance automobile – is the M Sport Differential installed in the front axle.
During highly dynamic driving maneuvers, this locking differential effectively reduces possible traction losses on the front wheels. In addition, the braking system has been upgraded for use on the X2 M35i.
The M Sport braking system with fixed front axle and floating rear axle calipers in Dark Blue M metallic guarantees consistently short braking distances even under the highest loads.
The X2 M35i comes standard with the M Sport suspension with stiffer spring and damper rates as well as a 10 mm lower ride height.
