BMW Teases 2 Series Gran Coupe

P90340876 HighRes The All New Bmw 2 Se

BMW is set to introduce an all-new 2 Series Gran Coupe. Here's what we currently know about it.

BMW CEO Harold Kruger announced plans are afoot to release a BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe to the market in early 2020. The car will officially make its debut at the Los Angeles Motor show in November 2019. Fans of the 2 Series architecture may be a little upset to find that this model will be based on the 1 Series platform, which in tandem with Mini, only produces front-driven and all-wheel-drive cars. The 1 Series itself has not yet been shown but should make an official appearance any day now. 

Obviously, the engine lineup is yet to be confirmed but in line with BMW's current models, it's likely to have a 1.5-litre 3-pot turbo and a 2.0-litre turbopetrol model. The M-Performance models will no doubt join the fray too with the 225 kW and 450 Nm turbocharged 2.0-litre unit.

The teaser image shown doesn't give much away other than the sloping C-pillar and lengthy taillight design that similar to the new 3 Series.
