January 16, the BMW Group's three large luxury cars made their debut in China, marked the beginning of 2019 product unveiling. The BMW brand will launch a total of 21 new products this year. BMW Board of Management Member Dr. Nicolas Peter said in an interview with IIA: "The innovative BMW X2 will be settled in Shenyang plant and become our third Chinese SUV." The new BMW X2 imported model was officially launched in China on June 25, 2018. The new car is based on the UKL platform and the design represents the latest direction in the X family design. In the future, the Chinese BMW X2 will compete with the Mercedes-Benz GLA and other models in the same market segment.

Previously, IIA learned from the Shenyang Association of Environmental Protection Industry that BMW Brilliance established the Tiexi Plant Product Structure (G2x, F39) adjustment technology transformation project with a total investment of 2.3 billion yuan. The project utilized the existing foundation of the BMW Brilliance Tiexi Plant to adjust the product structure. In the case of maintaining the existing annual capacity of 400,000 units, 235,000 units will be the G2x (BMW new three-series models) and the F39 (BMW X2 models).

The appearance of the BMW X2 is highly restored to the X2 Concept released at the 2016 Paris Motor Show, and it equipped with the M off-road kit. The kidney grille has an inverted trapezoidal structure with a narrow upper and a lower width. High-gloss black grille and chrome trim form a sharp contrast. Both the low beam and the high beam are LED lights, mating with hexagonal LED daytime running lights and round LED fog lights to form the lighting system of the new car.

One is the iconic Hofmeister corner, and the other is the first appearance of the BMW logo on the C-pillar on BMW X, a tribute to the BMW 2000CS and the BMW 3.0CSL. The rear bumper of the basic model is painted with the same color with the car body and mated with matt black. The M off-road set adopts the custom diffuser inserts with matte gray color.
