BMW India will be introducing the all-new 2 Series Gran Coupe in the country on October 15, 2020. The all-new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is based on the entry-level 2 Series sedan but takes design cues from the larger Gran Coupe models in the brand's line-up and is high on style. The four-door coupe will also be BMW's new entry-level offering for the Indian market and the second model from the 2 Series family, after the BMW M2 Competition. The model shares its underpinnings with the X1 and is also a front-wheel drive offering.
The new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe stands out with its styling with elements including the massive kidney grille, large air intakes on the bumper and wide headlamps with distinctive LED DRLs. The roofline is low-slung, keeping up with the coupe theme on the model and integrates into the boot that gets a lip spoiler and wraparound LED taillights inspired by the flagship 8 Series. In terms of dimensions, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is fairly large measuring 4526 mm in length, 1800 mm in width and 1420 mm in height. The wheelbase stands at 2670 mm, while the boot space is a surprisingly generous at 430 litres.
The cabin on the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is identical to the one on the 3 Series sedan and comes with a 10.25-inch infotainment system that offers a host of functions. The car also comes with ambient lighting, panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, park assist, electrically-adjustable front seats and the BMW digital key as well. The car also comes with safety aids like lane departure warning, lane change warning, rear collision warning, cross traffic warning, cruise control and more.
Power on the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is likely to come from both petrol and diesel engines. This will include the 2.0-litre turbo petrol that develops 189 bhp and 280 Nm of peak torque. The 2.0-litre turbo diesel develops 187 bhp and 400 Nm of peak torque. Both units are paired with the 8-speed Steptronic automatic transmission.
Prices are expected to start from ₹ 34-38 lakh on the 2 Series Gran Coupe. BMW's most affordable offering will take on the Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine that is likely to go on sale by the end of 2020 and the Audi A3 as well in the future.
