Real-life photos of the new BMW 2 Series Coupe

The first real-life images of the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupe arrive from Goodwood and Munich. These photos show the 220i/230i in Alpine White, while the M240i Coupe is in Thundernight Metallic. Coming from BMW’s lineup of two-door, four-seater, and small engine vehicles, the 2 Series Coupe is a new addition. As part of the original Neue Klasse, the BMW 1600 is one of the vehicles that got BMW into the market. The legendary BMW 2002 follows the iconic 1600, which established the brand’s reputation. It is now in its second generation, and it may be the last.

The new 2 Series Coupe is now lower than the 2002 model and more extensive. It gains a bit in length, width, wheelbase and wheel track. A 4.3-inch in length, 2.6-inch in width, 2.0-inch in wheelbase, 2.8-inch in front and 1.9-inch in the back are the dimensions for all non-M240i variants. Furthermore, it also measures 1.0-inch lower for a low centre of gravity and sporty appearance. On the other hand, the BMW M240’s proportions are worth noting. Although the front and rear wheel tracks have grown by 2.5-inch and 2.4-inch, it’s 3.5inch longer, 2.6-inch wider, and 1.0-inch lower than the previous M240i. 

Numerous design elements are reminiscent of the classic sports coupe despite being far larger than the original 2002. Like it was in the 2002 model, the Hofmeister kink is back. A single, uninterrupted shoulder line extends from just above the front wheel to just before the taillight. It harkens back to the 2002’s renowned chrome strip, running the length of the car. A fantastic purple exterior paint is the only new colour for the 2 Series Coupe. However, the Jet Black is only available for the non M240i models. Alpine White, Black Sapphire Metallic, Melbourne Red, Mineral White, Portimao Blue, and Brooklyn Grey make up the colour palette. 

The BMW 220i produces 184 horsepower, 300 Nm and can return up to 37 mpg. It is courtesy of the BMW’s standard 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine. A 2.0-litre turbo-diesel engine powers the BMW 220d that generates 190 horsepower and 400 Nm while returning 50 mpg. There is no fuel economy rating for the BMW 230i, but it houses a 2.0-litre turbo-four engine with 255 horsepower and 300 Nm of torque. With a 3.0-litre turbocharged inline-six engine, the BMW M240i delivers 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque while achieving 29 mpg. 

With an additional cost of $995 for the destination, the MSRP for the new BMW 230i Coupe starts at $36,350 and $48,550 for the BMW M240i xDrive Coupe. Its market launch will be in November 2021.
