For the US-market X2 Edition GoldPlay, say goodbye to the gold trimmings on the grille and mirrors, along with the X2’s gold side graphics.

The BMW X2 Edition GoldPlay is also coming to the United States, but with a few minor differences. What’s missing in the American press release are the gold trimmings on the grille and mirrors, along with the X2’s gold side graphics. However, you’ll be able to get the X2 Edition GoldPlay in Sapphire, Skyscraper Grey, Alpine White, or BMW Individual Storm Bay. The interior design is unchanged from the European model, but the touch screen for the iDrive 6 is just 8.8-inches instead of 10.25-inches.

The US-market X2 Edition GoldPlay will come in either front-wheel drive (FWD) sDrive28i or all-wheel drive (AWD) xDrive28i, which means both are powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engine that produces 228 hp and 258 pound-feet of torque.

Production for the BMW X2 Edition GoldPlay will commence this March. More details such as pricing and availability will be announced soon.
