Woodcliff Lake, NJ – January 25, 2022…The distinctive design of the BMW X2 Sports Activity Coupe projects a sense of athleticism that reflects the car’s sporty driving characteristics. Today, BMW announces a special edition trim package for the 2023 X2 line:  the X2 Edition GoldPlay.
The 2023 BMW X2 Edition GoldPlay includes content from the newly freshened M Sport Package.  An M Sport suspension with a 10-millimeter lower ride height and M Sport steering optimize the sporting driving experience.  A large, three-section lower air intake in the front apron, front and rear bumper panels with inserts in Dark Shadow, wheel arch trim and lower door edging in body color, M High-gloss Shadow Line trim and the M Aerodynamics package give the X2 a muscular appearance. The surrounds for the side windows, window recess covers, B-pillar trim and embellisher surrounds on the C-pillar, mirror cover panels and mirror frames (incl. mirror triangle) are finished in High-gloss Black on the X2 Edition GoldPlay, as are the exhaust tailpipe finishers and border for the BMW roundel on the tailgate.
Eye-catching inserts in Galvanic Gold adorn the standard 19-inch and optional 20-inch M aerodynamic wheels on either all-season or performance runflat tires.
New exterior color, striking graphics.

San Remo Green metallic paint is reserved exclusively for the X2 Edition GoldPlay. Customers can also specify Alpine White, Black Sapphire metallic, Skyscraper Grey metallic and BMW Individual Storm Bay metallic.
The interior: sporting ambience with innovative details.

Inside the X2 Edition GoldPlay, special accents create a stylistic connection with the exterior design. These include door sill strips which have a surface structure derived from the BMW grille’s mesh design and bear “Edition” lettering in Galvanic Gold.  Around the dashboard on the front passenger side of the cabin, the Dark Graphite matte trim is emblazoned with a graphic referencing those on the exterior.  For the first time, a laser engraving technique is used to apply the graphic in Golden Mica metallic on the surface of the strip and seal it with clear lacquer.
Another interior highlight is the M Sport Seats with prominent side bolsters and integral head restraints for the driver and front passenger.  The seats are trimmed in Black Perforated Dakota leather and feature contrast stitching and piping in Giallo Oro – a golden-yellow shade – and feature a High-Gloss Black border for the cut-out below the head restraints and a BMW M logo flag label on the backrest piping.
The X2 Edition GoldPlay features gold-colored contrast stitching for the instrument panel, center console, and outer and center armrests of the front seats. The edge binding on the floor mats is also Giallo Oro.
A range of drive options, extensive standard equipment.

Both two-wheel drive and all-wheel drive X2 28i models are powered by a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder BMW TwinPower Turbo engine producing 228 hp at 5,000 – 6,000 rpm and 258 lb.-ft. of torque at 1,450 – 4,500 rpm. The sDrive28i model sprints from 0 to 60 mph in 6.6 seconds while the added traction of the xDrive28i allows it to reach 60 mph in 6.3 seconds.
All X2 models equipped with 19-inch or 20-inch all-season tires are limited to 130 mph. Selecting summer performance tires increases the top speed limit to 144 mph for the sDrive28i or 143 mph for the xDrive28i.
A standard 8-speed Sport Steptronic automatic transmission allows for quick and seamless gear changes in either automatic mode or in manual mode via the gear selector lever or steering wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
The X2’s extensive list of standard equipment includes LED headlights with integral cornering lights, Apple CarPlay compatibility, SiriusXM Satellite Radio with a one-year All-Access subscription, BMW Navigation with an 8.8-inch high-resolution display, voice command system with Natural Language Understanding, and up to four annual Over-the-Air (OTA) updates for map data.  Standard safety features include Active Driving Assistant with Frontal Collision Warning, Lane Departure Warning, and Speed Limit Information, Park Distance Control, Front Collision Warning with City Collision Mitigation, and Speed Limit Display.
