The SAV (Sports Activity Vehicle) has been spotted on the streets of Munich. And it seems the X1's more stylish sibling will retain most of the concept car's charm.

For the sake of comparison, we've added the Paris Motor Show images of the X2 concept to the spyshot image gallery. Those of you tuned into the matter will remember that BMW announced it wants to target a new kind of audience with the X2, so we can expect all sorts of styling surprises once that camo disappears.

From the wide stance, to the seriously low roofline, which brought an aggressively short greenhouse design, this crossover will be an attention magnet.

In the powertrain department, the Bavarian automaker's turbocharged three- and four-cylinder engines will cater to the clientele's needs. In Europe, the base models should be animated by the 1.5-liter turbo gas unit and a 2.0-liter diesel. As for the US market, we can look at how the X1 is marketed, with this currently only packing a two-liter turbo engine in 228 hp 28i form.

The units will be matted to either a six-speed manual (Europe only), or to Aisin's eight-speed automatic. And since we're talking about the UKL platform, base models will pack front-wheel-drive, with xDrive AWD as an option.

We don't expect the carmaker's M Division to touch the X2, but since the 28i model mentioned above will only need a little over six seconds to hit 60 mph, we shouldn't have any reason to complain about this.


The German automaker should introduce the X2 late next year, as a 2018 model, thus completing the high-riding coupe line-up that currently includes the X4 and the X6.
