BMW has embarked on a new chapter with the launch of their all-new 2 Series Coupe. This model embodies the sporting prowess in a particularly concentrated form, with a concept that is focused on dynamic excellence, athletic design, powerful engines and sophisticated chassis design.

 

A standalone appearance, six-cylinder in-line petrol engine at the sharp end of the line-up, rear-wheel drive and chassis components inherited from the 4 Series substantially differentiate this model from the compact 1 Series while also laying the foundations for performance models in future.

 

As well as noticeable gains in dynamic ability, the new 2 Series Coupe offers a premium classy cabin ambience, cutting edge innovations in terms of operation and connectivity as well as a wide range of driver assistance systems.

 

Powerful design

Powerful proportions set within the classical three-box design of bonnet, passenger compartment and boot embody the dynamic potential of the new 2 Series Coupe. Athletically sculpted surfaces and dynamic lines represent an expression of pure driving pleasure.

 

Three-dimensional surfaces, triangular forms and diagonal lines shape the striking front end while prominently flared wheel arches and a muscular power dome at the centre of the bonnet add to the dynamic character. The BMW kidney grille is horizontal in design and features vertically arranged air flaps that open electrically when the engine develops an increased need for cooling air.

 

A long bonnet, short overhangs and a setback passenger compartment headline the side view.

 

Inside story

The driver-focused cockpit design and modern control panel on the centre console accentuate the sporty aura while creating a cocooning feel around the driver. Sport seats and a sporty leather steering wheel add to the engaging nature of the driving experience. High quality materials and precise workmanship create a premium ambience above and beyond that of the predecessor model.

 

Under the bonnet

The BMW 240i xDrive Coupe is fitted with a 285kW and 500Nm six-cylinder in-line engine and intelligent all-wheel drive that is sure to reward drivers with an emotionally rich driving experience. Customers can also choose from four-cylinder petrol or diesel variants that channel their power to the road via the rear wheels.

 

The BMW 220i Coupe is powered by a new four-cylinder petrol engine that offers 135kW and 300Nm, allowing it to complete the 0-100km/h sprint in 7.5 seconds.

 

Two-stage turbocharging and 48V mild-hybrid technology sees the four-cylinder diesel engine fitted to the 220d Coupe produce 140kW and 400Nm, enough to sprint to 100km/h in 7.0 seconds.

 

All engine options are paired with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission, which includes steering wheel paddles, Launch Control and the Sprint function.

 

Broader selection of driver assistance systems

Safety and comfort are enhanced with a significantly expanded selection of driver assistance systems including Driving Assistant with Lane Change Warning, Rear Collision Prevention and rear crossing traffic warning, Active Cruise Control with Stop&Go function, Park Distance Control, Reversing Assistant, Reversing assist Camera, Surround View and Remote 3D view.

 

Advanced Connectivity

Connectivity and digital services have been expanded thanks to the fitment of BMW Operating System 7. The system can be controlled via a variety of interfaces including the control display touchscreen, BMW Controller, multifunction buttons on the steering wheel or voice control. Customers also have on board access to a range of advanced digital services including the BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant, BMW Digital Key, Connected Music and Remote Software Upgrades.

 

The standard BMW Live Cockpit Professional features a fully digital screen grouping. It includes a high-resolution instrument cluster behind the steering wheel featuring a combination of 12.3-inch screen and a 10.25-inch control display.
