BMW has announced that it is introducing the BMW X2 M Mesh Edition in the UK, featuring exclusive content and new colour combinations. The new M Mesh Edition builds on the style already offered by the M Sport X model and gives the BMW X2 an even more exclusive and distinctive appearance.
What’s so special?
The most prominent enhancement is the BMW M mesh kidney grille in high-gloss black. Like the grille on the BMW X2 M35i, it has a pronounced three-dimensional mesh inspired by racing cars.
The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition will also feature exclusive inserts in the bumper trim, prominent cladding on the side skirts and door, and the wheel arch trim in a new signature colour called Frozen Black-Brown.
The Edition comes as standard with a unique 19” Bi-colour Aerodynamic alloy wheel with black accents which can be upgraded to a 20” Bi-colour alloy wheel.
BMW Individual High-gloss Shadow Line with extended features also comes as standard. As well as the High-gloss Black window and exterior mirror surrounds, the mirror base, mirror triangle, B-pillar trim and trim surround on the C-pillars, this package also includes the surround for the M mesh kidney grille, a ring around the BMW badge on the boot lid and exhaust tailpipe finishers in Black Chrome.
The edition comes with X2 logo projection from the exterior mirror on the driver’s side as standard and also includes door handle lighting, ground lighting, exterior mirror lighting and door entry light.
And then we have the updated front end with LED headlights as standard and the absence of the circular front fog lights featured previously brings extra distinction to the design. Adaptive LED Headlights, including a four-segment matrix function for high beam, are also available for this edition as an optional extra.
Exclusive elements of this edition are also echoed in the interior of the vehicle with M seats featuring integral headrests in black Dakota Leather. Contrast stitching in Grey completes the look and can be found on the instrument panel, centre console and floor mats.
The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition also brings special entry sills with “Edition” inscription. The optional panoramic roof, which floods the cabin with light, can be tilted and opened like a conventional sunroof.
The M leather steering wheel comes as standard, as does a car key featuring an exclusive M identifier. Cars with a manual gearbox also have a gearshift lever with M badging. The interior trim strips are in Aluminium Hexagon Anthracite, the BMW Individual headliner in Anthracite.
Customers in the UK can take their pick from three different types of drive system for the BMW X2 M Mesh Edition. The model is available with three efficient diesel engines – three petrol units and a plug-in hybrid drive system, all of which meet the Euro 6d emissions standard.
The BMW X2 also offers customers a choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive and manual or automatic transmission. Depending on the drive system selected, customers can order their car with sDrive front-wheel drive or BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive, a manual gearbox or automatic Steptronic transmission.
Other standard equipment include the BMW Navigation system featuring an 8.8-inch Control Display with touchscreen functionality, a 5.7-inch information display in the instrument cluster and Real Time Traffic Information, a 10.25-inch Control Display as well as BMW Head-Up Display.
Smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay as standard for lifetime allows selected iPhone functions to be used wirelessly and easily via the vehicle’s Control Display. The optional telephony with wireless charging function meanwhile, allows inductive charging of compatible smartphones which can also be hooked up with the car’s external antenna.
The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition is available to order from BMW retailers now in the UK from £34,510 (RM189,287) with first customer deliveries in March 2021.
