One year after the BMW X2 Concept appeared in Detroit, the all-new BMW X2 will make its world debut at the 2018 North American International Auto Show on Monday, January 15, 2018. The BMW press conference will be held at 9:35 a.m. EST at the BMW stand at COBO Center, One Washington Boulevard Detroit, MI 48226. In addition, the 2019 BMW i8 Coupe will also make its world debut at the show and will be featured alongside a number of electrified BMW vehicles.

The all-new BMW X2 is the latest addition to the BMW X family. The first-ever BMW X2 has a distinctive exterior design that combines the fast-moving body language and low-slung proportions of a coupe with the robust construction of a BMW X model. The cutting-edge 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine together with the 8-speed automatic transmission propel this emotional sports activity coupe from 0-60 mph in just 6.3 seconds, yielding 228 hp and a peak torque of 258 lb-ft. The BMW X2 will arrive in dealerships in spring 2018. Pricing will be announced closer to market launch. Read all about the BMW X2.

The 2019 BMW i8 Coupe also makes its world debut at the North American International Auto Show. The enhanced hybrid 2+2 seater has increased power and range over its predecessor and has been the worlds best-selling hybrid sports car since 2014. Using optimized BMW eDrive technology, and with hybrid-specific all-wheel drive, combustion engine driving the rear wheels and the electric motor driving the front wheels, the BMW i8 Coupe achieves 369 hp (12 hp more than its predecessor), a peak torque of 184 lb-ft, and accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 4.2 seconds (preliminary) with a top speed of 155 mph. The lithium-ion battery, located centrally in the cars underbody, and its cell capacity has been increased from 20 to 34 Ah and a gross energy capacity from 7.1 to 11.6 kilowatt hours. Also showcased alongside the all-new BMW i8 Coupe will be the BMW i8 Roadster, which made its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2017. The BMW i8 Roadster takes the BMW i8s combination of locally emission-free mobility and high-caliber performance and adds a top-down driving experience. The BMW i8 Roadster features a retractable, all-season fabric soft-top which can open and close in less than 16 seconds and while the vehicle is in motion at up to 31 mph. The two-seat BMW i8 Roadster stows its soft-top in the perpendicular position in the rear of the vehicle when opened and takes up very little space, maximizing storage capacity. The new BMW i8 Coupe and BMW i8 Roadster will be available in spring 2018. Pricing will be announced closer to market launch. Read all about the BMW i8 Coupe and BMW i8 Roadster.

The new BMW i3s is a sportier and more powerful variant of the BMW i3, the best-selling compact battery-electric vehicle in the premium compact segment worldwide since it launched in 2014. The first ever BMW i3s provides an even sportier interpretation of silent mobility with zero emissions and features a high output 184 hp electric motor that generates peak torque of 199 lb-ft. The BMW i3s accelerates from 0-60 mph in 6.8 seconds and has a top speed of 100 mph. The BMW i3s uses a lithium-ion high-voltage battery developed by the BMW Group with a cell capacity of 94-ampere hours (Ah). Like the BMW i3, the BMW i3s applies the concept of sustainability throughout the interior and exterior of the vehicle, incorporating recycled plastics, renewable raw materials, natural fibers, and open-pored, unbleached eucalyptus wood in the design. Read all about the BMW i3s.

The BMW X7 iPerformance Concept introduces a new model concept for the premium segment that utilizes BMW eDrive technology with a BMW TwinPower Turbo engine creating an exceptionally efficient and dynamic plug-in hybrid powertrain that excels in all driving situations, including running with zero local emissions. With a generously-sized, six-person interior, the BMW X7 iPerformance Concept offers an interior with a state-of-the-art infotainment system brimming with connectivity that provide an unmatched experience by any BMW past or present. As a result of the interplay between precise, pared-down forms and an open sense of space, the driver and passengers are immersed in a unique, modern setting. The production model of the BMW X7 will debut in 2018. Read all about the BMW X7.

The first-ever BMW M3 CS made its world debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2017. It is a special-edition model and delivers a blend of high performance and complete everyday practicality. The extensive use of carbon fiber-reinforced plastic has kept the BMW M3 CS extremely light and lowered the overall weight by approximately 110 pounds less than a standard BMW M3. The M TwinPower Turbo technology 6-cylinder inline engine produces 453 hp generating a peak torque of 443 lb-ft and accelerates from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, making it the quickest BMW M3 to date. The BMW M3 CS will be available to order in the U.S. starting in May 2018. Read all about the BMW M3 CS.

The BMW M5 has been regarded as the quintessential high performance sports sedan since its initial iteration launched in 1984. The 2018 BMW M5 marks the debut of the first ever M-specific all-wheel drive system, M xDrive, which allows the BMW M5 to reach new heights of dynamic performance and delivers poise in all driving situations. Thanks to a 4.4-liter V8 engine featuring M TwinPower Turbo technology, the BMW M5 produces 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of peak torque, skyrocketing from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, making it the quickest and most agile to date. The 2018 BMW M5 will be available with a MSRP of $102,600 plus $995 Destination and Handling, appearing in U.S. showrooms in spring 2018. Read all about the BMW M5.

The 2018 BMW X3 is the third generation of the pioneering premium compact Sports Activity Vehicle. The dynamic handling qualities of the BMW X3 are linked to its ideal 50:50 weight distribution between the front and rear axles, its meticulously honed chassis, and xDrive, BMWs intelligent all-wheel-drive system which debuted in 2003 in the first generation of the BMW X3. The BMW X3 uses a 2.0 liter TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder inline gasoline engine and an 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission yielding 248 hp and a maximum torque of 258 lb-ft, accelerating from 0-60 in 6.0 seconds with a top speed of 130 mph. The BMW X3 is available in U.S. showrooms with a MSRP of $42,450 plus $995 Destination and Handling. Read all about the BMW X3.

The only true value proposition I see on this very long list is the X3.
How well it's going to sell depends on the market preferences; in Germany the MB GLC is the second/third (depends on the month) best selling car on the whole market. BMW's selling point of the new X3 is that it has a 8cm higher seating position and thus a more "commanding" driving position while the GLC is in BMW's view more of a cross-over (a raised roomy C class).

The X2 is in my opinion a great idea that was really badly executed and that is totally overpriced (considering the hardware).
Audi is probably going to do a better job with the new upcoming Q3 and especially the Q4, while Mercedes plans a cheaper GLA geared towards style and less cargo capability and a boxy GLB with lots of space for a moderately higher sum, to catch as many customers as possible in this fastest growing segment in Europe. And for those seeking something more exotic there is going to be the new Evoque. All in all, I doubt in the X2 once the competition releases their creations.

I want to see the x7 in person. Sometime I have jumped to conclusions then I have seen a car in person and it was a lot better.

What difference does it make? There's no free lunch. If no one wants to own these, the lease residuals would eventually reflect that. Encouraging more people to buy and vice versa.

At least the X7 should appeal to the USA customers it looks imposing, a real truck, it signals far and wide who is coming and that is very important in The States

the X2 should be more Lady Marmalade you know, flashy and chic and something that makes the onlookers squeal from pleasures "Hello, hey Jo, you wanna give it a go?" Oh! uh huh

After taking about 100 looks at this truck, I think it will look the best all blacked out. I could be wrong.

Time will tell.
X7 will sell like hot cakes.

The only lux family carrier is the GLS.

The x7 will cannibalize the caddy space.
