Certainly that will was the case for the Nissan Murano Cross Cabriolet, although Land Rover’s Range Rover Evoque convertible will be currently trying to redeem the concept. that will may soon be joined by BMW, which will be mulling a cabriolet edition of its upcoming X2.
Unlike BMW’s X4 in addition to also X6, which don’t deviate far by the X3 in addition to also X5 products on which they are based, the X2 features a distinct in addition to also sporty Centeng style using a low-slung profile. This kind of car was previewed by the X2 concept (above) at the 2016 Paris auto show, in addition to also the show car will be said to be accurate down to the details. in addition to also even though that will’s a four-door, that will does look like a coupe.
The possible convertible edition, of course, might be a two-door vehicle in order to maintain some structural rigidity. Aimed at regions such as Florida in addition to also California as well as the traditional European markets, an X2 convertible might be fitted using a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at about 230 horsepower. An M Performance edition with close to 300 horsepower will be possible as well; that will could fill one of the gaps inside the M in addition to also M Performance lineup that will BMW executives have repeatedly alluded to.
