Built in Leipzig, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will receive its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019. The newcomer has all the ingredients to fuel the enthusiasm of new, design-led customers in urban areas for BMW’s hallmark driving pleasure. It represents an appealing addition to the model line-up, in particular in markets where the sedan body style enjoys strong popularity. Market launch will get underway in March 2020, with prices in Germany starting at €31,950 for the BMW 218i (fuel consumption combined: 5.7 – 5.0 l/100 km [62.8 – 67.3 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 131 – 114 g/km*), €39,900 for the BMW 220d (fuel consumption combined: 4.5 – 4.2 l/100 km [62.8 – 67.3 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 119 – 110 g/km*) and €51,900 for the range-topping BMW M235i xDrive (fuel consumption combined: 7.1 – 6.7 l/100 km [39.8 – 42.2 mpg imp]; CO2 emissions combined: 162 – 153 g/km*).

Like its four-door coupe siblings from the BMW 6 Series, BMW 4 Series and BMW 8 Series ranges, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe reveals a strong focus on design with bold, sporty and emotionally rich lines, frameless side doors and a highly expressive, flamboyant appearance. And it combines these elements with a high level of everyday practicality, including excellent interior space and a large load compartment.

As its sporting looks imply, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe establishes a new dynamic yardstick in its class. The underpinnings for this potency are provided by the advanced BMW front-wheel-drive architecture, which the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe shares – in addition to an array of other technological developments – with the new BMW 1 Series. Furnished with cutting-edge chassis technology and innovative systems, e.g. in the field of control system technology, the four-door coupe likewise raises the bar in terms of driving dynamics and agility, and is the perfect choice for young, urban customers for whom sportiness, cutting-edge connectivity and ample on-board space rank highly. And in BMW M235i xDrive form, it comes as standard with BMW xDrive all-wheel drive.

Dynamically stretched silhouette with exclusive details.
The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe seamlessly transfers the elegant aesthetic championed by its larger stablemates into the premium compact class. The standout characteristic of the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is its dynamically stretched silhouette which, like the four frameless side doors, is lifted from the classical coupe blueprint. The new Gran Coupe model also adds exclusive details such as contoured kidney grille bars with an eyecatching indentation, a mesh grille for the flagship BMW M235i xDrive and, most strikingly, the all-new design of the rear lights, which extend well into the centre of the rear end. They hand over to a High-gloss Black band, which runs up to and encircles the centrally located BMW badge. This combination of the rear lights and connecting element makes a horizontal statement and accentuates the width of the rear. The 2 Series Gran Coupe measures 4,526 millimetres in length and 1,800 millimetres in width, but stands just 1,420 millimetres tall. Despite its low-slung, sporty appearance, passengers are well catered for space-wise, thanks to the 2,670-millimetre wheelbase. Plus, the 430-litre load compartment can be expanded in various ways. All of which significantly increases the car’s range of applications in daily use.

Really? :oops: I think it's badly overdesigned. Very busy front and rear, quite fat compared to the "real" 2er coupé/cabrio. But I'm sure it will sell anyway. I think we can start a countdown for the end of the RWD 2er…

AFAIK there will be a RWD based 2er Coupe.

It's ugly. It's too tall and it has weird front end plus from the side looks like Renault Megane sedan or Talisman.

On car fan forums it's almost unanimously labelled as an ugly car.

P.S.
I think it was a mistake to make it 4 door and not a 5 door car.
