M Performance BMW X2 on the way

BMW has quashed rumours that it will build an M version of the new X1 compact SUV by suggesting the swoopier X2 with mild M-Division treatment will suffice.

“This is the car where we could make an M performance model,” said a company insider. This suggests that, like the BMW M235i, the X2 won’t be a full-on member of the M Division, but will instead be a warmed over model. “If you need a sporty car in this category, you should want a coupe body style,” our source added.
