The colored quadrants of the BMW logo is synonymous with innovation, elegance, a bold dash of debonair, and above all, a dedication to luxury vehicles. The Germany-grown automobile brand is continuing its patrimony of producing the most coveted sports cars through its latest creation, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé. As the first of its kind, BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé takes all the best features and functions of the brand and embodies the aesthetic-oriented, function-focused lifestyle of young urban-dwellers.
Formidable power in a compact physique
With only one variant available, the 218i Gran Coupé Sport, the new vehicle has set a new bar in its kind. It seamlessly transfers the elegant aesthetic championed by its larger stablemates into the premium compact class. The remarkable underpinnings of this vehicle are provided by the advanced BMW front-wheel-drive mechanism, which it shares with the BMW 1 Series. The Gran Coupé is equipped with state-of-the-art chassis technology and systems technology, making it dynamic and agile with a compact sedan body.
The slightly angled headlights feature full LED technology and form a prominent BMW four-eyed face, drawing attention to the distinguished BMW kidney grille. The kidney grille bars have also received an upgrade with an eye-catching indentation. Exquisite details exclusive to the Gran Coupé include the new design of the rear lights which extend to the center of the rear end. These trail onto a high-gloss black band which runs to the center of the rear, where the prominent BMW badge is located.
Interiors with a sporting flair and an impressive space
The interior of the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé is designed with comfort and refinement in mind. It offers a combination of sport elements, high-quality materials, and modern conveniences to make long distance trips enjoyable. The compact Gran Coupé comes with a surprisingly generous cabin space, welcoming passengers with extra knee room for convenience. BMW’s premium leatherette seating option, Sensatec, ensures comfort and durability. The front seats adjust electronically and come with a memory function for the driver. Interior trim strips are finished in the “Illuminated Berlin” design for a soft luminous glow.
The sleek steering wheel allows access to the many functions that the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé offers. Air conditioning and lighting controls are grouped together and laid out intuitively. The infotainment system can be controlled via the BMW iDrive Controller, and it can also be accessed through the 8.8-inch touchscreen Central Information Display which is part of the seamless BMW Live Cockpit.
The Central Information Display also offers guidance when using BMW’s innovative Parking Assistant, allowing automatic assisted parking in spaces, as well as maneuvering out of them. The Gran Coupé also boasts a Park Distance Control, offering front and rear parking sensors, paired with a rear-view camera.
Dynamic engine strength in a polished shell
The sleek frame of the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé houses a compelling engine that can take you from point A to point B smoothly and swiftly. Under the hood is a 1.5-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo 3-cylinder, paired with a seven-speed dual clutch Steptronic automatic transmission. This mighty machine offers 140 hp and 220 Nm of torque. The glossy exterior of the car comes in captivating colors to suit every taste: Alpine White, Black Sapphire, Melbourne Red, and Mineral Grey.
