Elegant silhouette with a powerful presence.

The First-Ever BMW iX2 xDrive30’s rebellious appearance is first presented by its front design, which features the new redesigned closed BMW kidney grille with a black mesh grille and black high-gloss kidney frame, highlighted by the BMW Kidney Iconic Glow. The adaptive LED headlights with BMW Selective beam are accompanied by new daytime running lights with a vertically arranged light signature that provides optimum visibility for a safer drive as well as a contemporary design signature. Other than that, the front apron also comes with a black radiator grille in black high gloss.


From the side, the muscular silhouette of the First-Ever BMW iX2 xDrive30 is characterised by a gently sloping roofline, backwards-tapered windows, M high-gloss Shadow line, and long wheelbase. This is accompanied by V-spoke style 873 M Bicolour 20-inch M light alloy wheels and flush door handles to further accentuate its hallmark sportiness. As for the rear, the LED taillights are fitted as standard contributing to the First-Ever BMW iX2 xDrive30’s striking appearance which is accentuated by its distinctive high-gloss black rear spoiler.


Modern, intuitive functionality with a spacious interior.

The cockpit of the First-Ever BMW iX2 xDrive30 spotlights the fully digital, driver-oriented BMW Curved Display, with its combined, high-resolution 10.25-inch instrument display cluster and 10.7-inch control display, as the centre of attention. Along with the full-colour BMW Head-Up Display, which projects essential driving information into the driver’s line of vision, wireless charging tray with a built-in cooling system, front armrest with integrated control panel, automatic tailgate operation and the Harman Kardon Hi-Fi speaker system, the First-Ever BMW iX2 xDrive30 features advanced digitalisation that lends the cockpit an exceptionally modern appeal.
