The house of the German double kidney has decided to present the new version of the Series 2 Coupé. Driving pleasure has been redefined within a Premium range for small Coupés.
In the evolution of hybrid engines, BMW also wanted to introduce interesting innovations in the 2 Series Coupé. New technology and engines that reach up to 374 horsepower.
We are talking about the third generation of a Coupé that has managed to pigeonhole important data in a truly competitive market.
To see this car we have to wait until the end of 2021 as it still takes a few months to put it on the road.
A car designed mainly in the sports field also thanks to the perfect 50:50 weight distribution between the two axles.
Prices are certainly not cheap and start at around € 42,000. We are talking about a car 4 meters and 50 cm long, with a lowered suspension of 28 mm and an overall height of almost 140 cm.
In terms of exterior design, a lot has been done by BMW. Although the line is that of a normal Coupe, the hood is now interesting and is really long with a compact tail. Different variations can be chosen by those interested, such as 17 or 18-inch alloy wheels.
As for the exhaust terminal, it is now possible to have a squared double terminal and an accentuated spoiler to allow a better definition of the rear.
Climbing aboard the car we put how the interiors have been designed with a nod to tradition. Obviously there are two screens, namely that of the 10-inch instrument panel and that of the 12-inch dashboard.
We can find all the compatibility of Android auto and Apple carplay as well as a whole series of information on driving aids. The latter have in fact been updated to the latest BMW technologies and therefore allow drivers to be absolutely serene during the driving phase.
As for the engines we have an interesting 48 volt light electrification for the 2,000 turbodiesel capable of delivering up to 190 horsepower and 400 Newtonmeter of torque.
The petrol engines obviously are both with aspirated technology but also with ultra sport technology. The top of the range in fact allows you to shoot from 0 to 100 km per hour in just 4.36 seconds, also thanks to all-wheel drive.
As for consumption, they range from 5 liters per 100 km in the diesel Hybrid up to 8 liters per 100 km in the ultra sports version.
As we have said, the prices are not cheap and start at around € 42,000 for basic petrol, up to the ultra-sporty version of the M series which reaches € 58,000.
