The BMW X2 range launched less than a month ago and now two more variants will join the family mid-year, priced from $49,900+ORC.

THE BMW X2 launched in Australia in March with BMW coy on when the range would be filled out. Less than a month after the launch of that first variant, the X2 sDrive20i ($55,900+ORC), the entry-level sDrive18i ($49,900+ORC) and the tops-spec xDrive20d ($59,900+ORC) have been announced as the final pieces in the puzzle. The two new models are expected to arrive here around the middle of the year.
