2024 BMW X2 Debuts As All-New Lincoln Corsair Rival

The Lincoln Corsair received a welcome refresh for the 2023 model year, bringing about updated styling, and perhaps more notably, a variety of tech features including BlueCruise, a new 13.2-inch infotainment screen running Sync 4, plus some new colors and interior themes. Of course, the Corsair has plenty of rivals in the world of the compact luxury crossover, and that list is set to grow with the just-revealed 2024 BMW X2 – which is a bit different than the X1, which received some updates for the 2023 model year, too.

The 2024 BMW X2 shares a lot in common with the X1, but is more focused on style than practicality, largely thanks to its fastback-styled rear section that cuts down on cargo space. However, the X2 also looks quite a bit different in every other way than the X1, to the point where no one will probably confuse one for the other.

That isn’t the case inside the cabin, however, where the X1 and 2024 BMW X2 share most everything else in common, including the curved digital display that incorporates both the cluster and infotainment screens. In terms of powertrains, the new X2 offers two options for American customers – the X2 xDrive 28i utilizes a 2.0L inline-four cylinder engine making 241 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, while the X2 M35i xDrive gets the same powerplant, albeit with more horsepower – 312 – and the same torque rating.

Both models are equipped with a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and all-wheel drive as standard, though the M35i xDrive adds revised steering, adaptive dampers, and bigger brakes, all of which is also included in the optional M Sport package for the X2 xDrive 28i. Set to launch in March 2024, the new 2024 BMW X2 is slated to start out at $42,995 for the xDrive28i and $52,395 for the M35i xDrive.

    A Lexus NX now has 304hp. This new X2 is with 312hp (+8 more hp). The next CX-70 will be 340hp.
    Watch Ford walking the Lincoln Corsair back to the cave (“the sanctuary”), except it ain’t no Batman. Farley will more gladly to just axe it altogether for you!
    Because, less is more nowadays. The new Corsair will be a 1.0L 3 cylinder NA. Yes!

    Let’s be real, nobody cross shops Lincoln and BMW. They’d be lucky if Lexus got cross shopped with Lincoln. People are cross shopping Buick and Ford with Lincoln.

    The exterior looks like a convoluted, half-melted bar of soap. The interior looks pretty good, though. If the price points are the same, I’d go BMW every time, even if only for the better resale value.

    The continual BMW styling horror show continues to march on. Sad when up to about 15 years ago BMW’s had of the cleanest, most functional, styling around.

    Buick vs Lincoln? This tells a lot about one’s domestic knowledge brand. Escalade vs Navigator: yes! Buick!?!
