BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe features
The new BMW Series 2 Gran Coupe design won’t bring major improvements but as it is based on the UKL platform with front-wheel drive, the new BMW will come with an engine which will range from 102 to 224 hp. It is believed that the new model will be powered by a 2.0-Liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 8 automatic speeds. However, according to some rumors, the future BMW 2 Serie will also come with a 3.0-Liter 3-cylinder engine which will be available on the European market, only.
The front-wheel-drive concept offers not only a better space economy but also cost advantages. Thus, the more spacious future BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe can be offered at prices starting from an estimated of 24,000 euros, lower than the prices of the 3 Series which come with a rear-wheel drive.
For the more sophisticated buyers, the Bavarians will also offer the option of the xDrive four-wheel drive.
