After the premieres of the new BMW 1 Series and 2 Series Gran Coupé, the range of compact vehicles from the Munich firm awaits the arrival of its other two regular members, the 2 Series Active Tourer minivan that we have already hunted in full swing. test and the BMW 2 Series Coupé, but what about the latter?
Well, everything changed when at the end of April we found some we have found a whole find on the net, some images leaked on Wilcoblock’s Instagram profile that seem to reveal both the front and the back of the new Series 2 Coupé, specifically the future BMW M235i Coupé or at least a new generation 2 Series with pack M. However, not even on the site where the photographs have been published did they dare to ensure that we are really in front of this model.
The images were taken in their day in a facility of the brand in Munich, and just a few weeks ago our spies returned to that place to leave us the first photos of the camouflaged model uploaded to a truck. The first time that it could be seen whole and from all possible angles, to confirm that we are facing the future BMW 2 Series Coupé. Now they have finally spotted it moving again.
In its first appearance with the model completely uncovered, we could already see certain sports elements of the BMW M Performance range such as the specific bumpers, with wide air inlets and black deflectors, the wide front and rear air inlets, the aerodynamic elements such as the front splitter or the rear air diffuser, as well as the M badge on the rear, as well as some trims of the double exhaust outlet with a trapezoidal design that is present in these new images in some of the prototypes.
However, the most striking thing about this new Series 2 Coupe is its newly designed headlights, which are also confirmed in these camouflaged prototypes. Both the front and rear are different from those of the aforementioned Series 1 and Series 2 Gran Coupé, something that will contribute to giving the sportiest model in the brand’s range of compact cars its personality. All this in addition to a double kidney grille that remains horizontal, unlike the new 4 Series.
What the photos of our spies also confirm is that in general lines the new Series 2 Coupé seems to maintain the shapes and proportions of its predecessor, although the longer and the flat hood is revealed. Also, as BMW has been slipped in some media, it will have propulsion instead of the front-wheel-drive that its brothers use in all its variants except those that incorporate the xDrive all-wheel-drive system, which will also be available for this 2 Coupé. This Coupé version will opt for a different platform based on the CLAR architecture.
BMW 2 Series Coupe 2021 Engine
This second-generation 2-Series Coupé will feature exhilarating M versions and a range of gasoline-powered powertrains ranging from 190 to 306 hp. However, our spies speak specifically of a range composed of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that could be around 255 hp, although a more powerful six-cylinder engine would also have to be expected for the future M2, which could be the same block 3.0-liter Biturbo that already use models such as the X3 M or the X4 M and that could exceed 420 hp.
Although with this we could say that we already know the “face” of the new 2 Series Coupe, its premiere is not scheduled until next year, so until then the people of BMW may make changes or at least release new information about it. the most compact sports car from the Bavarian house.
