BMW Unveils The X2 M35i: New BMW X2 M35i

New BMW X2 M35i

All indications are that the new flagship of the X2 SUV lineup, the BMW X2 M35i, will launch early in 2019. This compact, high-performance SUV will compete with the Mercedes GLA and Range Rover Evoque, as well upcoming crossovers like the Audi SQ2.

The body is smaller and more muscular than other X2s, with sportier front details, 19-inch wheels (optional 20-inch), a small rear spoiler and a high-performance exhaust system.

The model’s new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder petrol engine will be the most powerful 4-cylinder engine produced by BMW, as well as the first M Performance engine to feature four cylinders instead of six.

Supported by xDrive all-wheel-drive and an 8-speed automatic transmission, the engine delivers 302bhp and 332lb-ft (450Nm) of torque to catapult the M35i from 0 to 62mph in 4.9 seconds.

Handling is sportier than in other X2 models thanks to special tuning of the chassis, suspension and steering, as well as M Sport braking with 18-inch front discs. The M35i is fun to drive, with less lean around corners than you might expect from an SUV.

The attractive interior features the usual intuitive controls, sports seats in red or black leather, leather wrapped steering wheel with shift paddles, ample legroom and plenty of headroom. Options like a full-color head-up display, Apple CarPlay and BMW ConnectedDrive are also available.

As the flagship of the X2 series, the new M35i will likely cost in the mid to high $40,000s (US). Those seeking BMW driving pleasure at much lower prices are encouraged to consider older used models from Japan.

The BMW X1, for example, shares many X2 features and has been in production much longer, since 2009. So older used models can be purchased at significant savings over new BMWs. This is especially true when purchased through used car auctions in Japan.

Another outstanding choice for a used BMW is the BMW M5 sports sedan. The turbocharged 2012 model below leaves a contemporary Countach behind in the 0-60 dash. It was purchased in excellent condition at a very reasonable price at a used car auction in Japan with under 24,000 miles on the meter.

More affordable still was this 2000 BMW M5 imported to Canada from Japan. It still drives like new and is a perfect example of why so many BMW enthusiasts turn to the Japanese used car market.

Last but not least, this BMW E30 M3 — one of the greatest cars of all time — was purchased at a used car auction in Japan and exported to its lucky owner abroad for a very reasonable price. Old BMWs last forever and this pristine 1988 model is still running strong.

    review rating 5  All I can say about the experience is AMAZING! I worked with Matthew and he was helpful through the whole process of bidding, purchasing, and shipping the car to me. He had an answer for every question, and was always quick to respond. Enjoying my new Mercedes and I will be using them again!

    review rating 5  All around exceptional experience! Matt was great to work with and guided me through the entire process with ease. As a first timer, importing was a bit nerve racking but JCD did a great job providing a cool little truck I can enjoy here in Delaware. I look forward to picking up the next toy/vehicle through them.

  • review rating 5  The experienced, grizzled veterans of the import scene. They were very accommodating with all my questions and concerns. It was my first time importing, so everything was confusing and intimidating, but I'm happy to report everything went as planned! I'm definitely calling them back when I finally come up with an excuse to import another!

    review rating 5  Working with Mathew and his team was an absolute pleasure. I went from never knowing you could import your own vehicle to owning my own Suzuki Cara within 6 months. Mathew was so helpful and completely transparent with me during the entire process. We spoke on the phone and via email and he helped me pick the perfect car exactly within my requirements. He dealt with my excitement and inexperience with patience and understanding. I couldn't be happier with my experience and will absolutely use Japan Car Direct again when it's time for another project. I highly recommend Mathew and Japan Car Direct.

  • review rating 5  Just purchased my second car through Japan Car Direct. Could not be more pleased with their customer service. Matt went above and beyond to help me find the right car. Translating countless auction sheets, messaging sellers, requesting vehicle inspections, putting up with me and my requests well after his time in the office, etc. I can happily and honestly say that I would recommend this company to anyone looking to purchase a car from Japan and that you will not be dissappinted. Very kind, helpful and professional. Can’t wait for vehicle number 3.

  • review rating 5  I hunted the internet for a broker I could trust with my money. JDC won and I am so happy I went with them. Matt and Yoshi are great. Matt puts up with a very demanding customer in me, I can certainly take up time. Matt sends me cars from the list I sent him, when I don't have time to check the auction. It is scary how accurate Matt is when I ask him to predict a selling price. He is always very close which sometimes is not fun but he really does know pricing. They have walked we through buying two cars now and have held my hand on both. I really apricate all the time and knowledge. After purchase they have also held my hand through the whole import process which can be daunting for a first timer. I am a dealer and Matt is great at suggesting other cars to import as well. I am very satisfied with my choice

    review rating 5  What can I say? The service was friendly and good, and I got my car, which ended up being in a better condition than expected. Sure, there were couple of unforeseen snags that no-one had anticipated, but overall, it was an extremely positive experience. Hommat meni hyvin, auto tuli Suomeen eikä noiden pyytämä hintakaan ollut mikään mahdottoman paha.

    review rating 5  I bought a 1993 RX7 FD from these guys they are great! Communication was very good, and prompt! Iv has my car now for 6 months and have been loving it! I would recommend emailing them and looking into the options! They are upfront about price and will steer you into the right direction on what the car will take to own! I’m working with Yoshiro to buy another car now! I’m very pleased with the service I received. It can be scary sending lots of money to a person you don’t know for a car you have never seen, but they will come through with everything they tell you they will do!

  • review rating 5  They've somehow made what was expected to be complicated, so simple. I got all the info I needed and imported my first JDM car without a single problem. Matthew was super fast to respond and always had an answer.

    review rating 5  A must for exporting cars from Japan. I've exported various models with these guys now and they have been exactly how we wanted them with no underlying issues or surprises when they arrive. Very pleased and will continue to use these guys in the future!

    review rating 5  This was my first time importing a vehicle for my personal use and naturally I was leary about who to go through. After looking through a few other places and after getting in touch with a longtime customer of theirs I decided to try these guys out. I can say without a doubt I'm glad I did. They are definitely professional and know their craft when it comes to getting you your dream car. Everything from getting cars inspected and bidding was completely transparent and went smoothly. I couldn't be happier with the car I bought and I hope down the line I'll be able to purchase another using these guys!! Thanks for all you guys do!!!
