This car is expected to offer competition to the Mercedes-Benz A- class and Audi A3 thus making it a force to reckon with.
To make it stand out from other cars in the market, BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe’s exterior does its best to hide the fact that it is not a rear-wheel-drive car. This is made possible thanks to the inoffensive typical BMW kidney bean grilles in together with par-for-the-course Bimmer headlights. These headlights contain LED accents and a roof line that perfectly flow into a slight integrated trunk spoiler.
Looking at the rear, you will notice a smack-dab that disclose sits most polarizing design trail in the thin LED taillights. Underneath the metal is a 2.0-liter turbo-four engine that is available in two flavors. If you are into 228i model, then you are set to get less powerful tune with 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. On the other hand, the M235i boasts of a 301hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.
As for the speed. The base 2 Series Gran Coupe will sprint to 60 mph in 6 seconds flat. The M235i version is quite different as it achieves the same in 4.7 seconds. This is mainly because of the additional gusto from a reinforced crankshaft, larger turbocharger and modified fuel injectors to mention a few. However, you should not expect to get any of these cars as a front-wheel drive car. The good news is that xDrive is standard on all the 2 Series-Gran Coupes models and works with a wheel-slip limiter. This is a car worth watching out for especially if you are a huge fan of BMWs.
