2020 BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe Teased Ahead Of Tomorrow’s Debut

BMW has released new pictures of the 2-Series Gran Coupe, ahead of its debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Set to battle the Mercedes CLA, the 2-Series Gran Coupe will slot beneath the 3-Series when it is launched next spring. However, unlike the 1-Series Sedan, the model will be offered in a variety of markets including the United States.

Full details will be announced shortly, but the 2-Series Gran Coupe will ride on the company’s front-wheel drive UKL platform. Critics might scoff at this decision, but the automaker has previously said the car will deliver “hallmark BMW driving pleasure.”

Getting back to the teaser images, they show the car will have a prominent grille which is flanked by slender headlights. We can also see an aggressive front bumper with large air intakes.

The sporty styling continues further back as the 2-Series Gran Coupe has a dynamic greenhouse, a sloping roofline and a stylish rear end with an integrated spoiler. We can also see prominent character lines, slim taillights and a ventilated rear fascia on what’s presumably the M235i.

An assortment of engines will be available and US customers can look forward to 228i and M235i variants. The former will have a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces around 228 hp (170 kW / 231 PS) and 258 lb-ft (349 Nm) of torque. It will be connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to a standard all-wheel drive system.

The M235i also has a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine, but it should have 302 hp (225 kW / 306 PS) and 332 lb-ft (450 Nm) of torque. Like its mainstream counterpart, the model will also have all-wheel drive and an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
