Following the introduction of the mid-level X2 sDrive20i in Australia earlier this month, BMW customers have also received some pretty good news concerning the introduction of the entry-level sDrive18i and the top of the line xDrive20d in the country.
With the whole lineup in one place, we should also reveal the official prices – sDrive18i ($49,900), sDrive20i ($55,900) and xDrive20d ($59,900).
Famous Marc Werner, CEO of BMW Australia, has also welcomed both variants in the Land Down Under:
“We have already seen strong interest in the X2, both via initial media reviews as well as in the dealerships and on our website. Now we have taken the opportunity to fill out the range, offering a strong entry offering in the sDrive18i, as well as the xDrive20d, a turbo-diesel, all-wheel drive range topper.”
Performance wise, the entry-level sDrive18i features a 1.5-liter turbo-petrol three-cylinder engine with 103 kW and 220 Nm ot torque. This allows a sprint from 0 to 100 km/h in 9.6 seconds, thanks to an eight-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.
On the other hand, the xDrive20d is equipped with a higher 2.0-liter turbo diesel four-cylinder pot with 140 kW and 400 Nm of torque. The same sprint is done in 7.7 seconds. For this variant, the fuel consumption figure is given and stands at 5.1L/100 km/h on a combined cycle.
