2021 BMW X2 M Mesh Edition confirmed for Australia to compete against Audi Q2 and Mercedes-Benz GLA

The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition is powered by a 141kW/280Nm 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine.

BMW Australia will introduce the wildly-styled X2 M Mesh Edition small SUV to local showrooms in early 2021 as a trendy alternative to Audi’s Q2 crossover and the Mercedes-Benz GLA.

Based on the mid-tier sDrive20i variant, the front-drive M Mesh Edition will be powered by a 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine outputting 141kW/280Nm, which is paired with a seven-speed automatic transmission for a zero-to-100km/h sprint in 7.7 seconds.

However, the new variant scores a number of cosmetic changes to stand it apart from the crowd.

Finished in a Brooklyn Grey metallic paint, the M Mesh Edition also sports a high-gloss black kidney grille, and Black-Brown-coloured exterior highlights on the front bumper, side skirts and wheelarches.

Contrasting the paintwork are decals on the bonnet and flanks in an attention-grabbing orange colour.

However, buyers can also opt for an Alpine White, Phytonic Blue or Sunset Orange duco, which swaps out the colour of the stickers from orange to black, and the decal colouring is also matched by the 20-inch M aerodynamic wheels.

The M Mesh Edition is also fitted with LED headlights and no front foglights for a cleaner front aesthetic, while a driver’s side puddle lamp will also project the X2 logo on the ground.

Inside, the new X2 grade scores a two-tone cabin, mixing brown leather and orange-contrast stitching for the seats and lower trim with dark upper trim.

M Sport seats with integrated head rests are also fitted, as is a panoramic sunroof, 10.25-inch ID6 multimedia touchscreen, head-up display and wireless smartphone charger.

BMW is yet to reveal full pricing and specification, but expect the M Mesh Edition to wear a slight premium over the $56,900 before on-road costs sDrive20i upon which it is based.
