Disagree. Most Chinese brands’ exterior design these days are really good.

Hopefully the new X3 looks better in and out. BMW just keeps pushing me farther away with each new release.

I like it.

Although the M35 stats are not super great, I think this car will sell like hotcakes. Especially here in the Bay Area...

Wow that's hideous. The only thing I like is the shape of the grill. I dont even think I felt so much disgust when the x7 and i7 came out as with those cars there's at least some aspects that are nice to me personally but with this, there's nothing... and those rear lights? WOW. It looks like those French designed suvs but that's not that surprising since their head designer came from Citroen.

Yeah it somehow now doesn’t look like a BMW but like a Audi Q3 sportback crossed with an X1. Not for me, much happier with the U11 thanks.

Cool small car.

Id love it with some overland/Safari option from BMW, like a mini Dune attack car. Why not? I think car's style and the rake back suits some kind of Dakar racer. White, OZ rims with chunky gravel tyres. Utterly impractical but Id love one like this for city run about duties (as EV also, not as petrol). Thats my take. May be front overhangs could be shorter, looks too much like FWD car but it loses that in person Im sure.

EDIT - i do not mean it like this, them wheels are too tiny. https://u11.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=2054680


No climate dials is a failure. Capacitive BS.

The dash screen looks much better integrated into the dash compared to previous BMW cars. I like that more. Gone is the Traders double screen desktop setup. Thanks for that!

Amazing

Don't know what's wrong with everyone on here. This looks amazing, a great design, love the rear lights and the face class.

Interesting option in the M235i, the front is good, but the rear, wow!

Compared to the outgoing X2, I think this is a massive improvement.

As an M440i owner, I'm offended that this X2 gets M compound breaks and quad pipes that were not an option when I ordered my car a year ago..

This actually doesn’t look horrible in pictures so it’ll probably look great in real life.

BMWs are some of the least photogenic cars out there.

Comply to average standard? Consume brand momentum? You live in haters’ bubble.

BMW has never been this good in terms of critical acclaim, customer satisfaction, reliability and sales. So they’re not consuming their brand momentum, they’re building it now…

I love all the hate from all the purists lmfaooo. Same bunch of narrow headed idiots that talked trash about the design of the g8x. This thread is full of negative people. Even more of the same trash talk about the m235i GC. When I owned one I never had a single dislike from anyone that saw it. “Its not a bmw it’s a mini” “its not a real M car” bla bla BS. Guess what, no one in here or this forum decides what BMW puts the M badge on. Only BMW does. It’s really pathetic to see all the hate especially when the push for full electric numb garbage is knocking at the door.
