BMW X2 M Mesh Edition confirmed for Australia

The BMW X2 M Mesh Edition features unique decals and interior upholstery, as well as – you guessed it – a mesh grille.

BMW has expanded the X2 SUV line-up with this – the M Mesh Edition. Based on the range-topping M Sport X variant, it outfits the firm’s small sporty crossover with a unique paint scheme, a reupholstered interior and few exterior trim tweaks. It’ll go on sale in  Australia early next year.

The body of the BMW X2 M Mesh Edition is finished in Brooklyn Grey metallic paint, and the cladding on the crossover’s side skirts, doors and wheel arches use a unique Frozen Black-Brown metallic paint. The orange decals are optional, but if they take your fancy, BMW will fit them at no additional cost.

Other tweaks over the standard X2 include a new mesh radiator grille, black window surrounds, black chrome exhaust tips and a set of unique aerodynamic alloy wheels, in either 19-inch or 20-inch diameters, with inserts to match the car’s orange decals.

Buyers can also choose to tone down the Mesh Edition’s colour scheme by opting for one of BMW’s more subdued paint finishes – such as Alpine White or Phytonic Blue. If Sunset Orange paint is selected, the decals and wheel trims are swapped for black replacements.

Inside, buyers get some new aluminium trim for the dashboard, unique treadplates, BMW branded puddle lighting and a pair of M Sport seats trimmed in exclusive Mocha Brown leather and Alcantara upholstery. There’s a set of new floor mats, too, with piping to match the car’s orange decals.

Buyers can also choose from a couple of optional extras, such as adaptive LED headlights and a panoramic sunroof. There’s a few technology options to choose from as well, including either a 8.8-inch or 10.25-inch touchscreen, a larger 5.7-inch display for the gauge cluster and a head-up display.

The Mesh Edition is available with all of the X2’s engines but the 225kW 2.0-litre unit fitted to the X2 M35i. So buyers can choose from two petrol engines, three diesel units and a plug-in hybrid powertrain.
