BMW has introduced an entry-level coupe with the BMW 2 Series. It is front-wheel drive and blends perfectly with the comfort of a sedan and sportiness of a coupe. It’s pricing starts at ₹ 41.50 lakhs (ex-showroom). Here are 10 things to know about the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe.
1) BMW 2 Series is available in three variants – Sportline in diesel and Sport and M sport in petrol .
2) The design aesthetics are taken from their previous coupe.
3) It’s a four-door coupe which makes it more practical in terms of space. It also has fairly good boot space. So perfect for the occasional long-distance drive.
4) It’s a typically new-age BMW with a large kidney grille and aggressive LED headlamps. The roofline is low and rounded, which stands out from the crowd. The clean design of the four frameless doors puts a modern spin on classic coupé style.

6) The Sports line gets 17 inches alloy wheels whereas the M Sport gets 18 inches alloy wheels.

9) It is powered by a 2-liter engine which produces good 190 horsepower and 400nm which is the same output as the diesel 3 Series. The only difference is, it’s much lighter than the 3 Series, which makes 2 Series Gran Coupe even more responsive.
