This is the new 2 Series, I swear.
I’m assertive that there’s some array of BMW analysis centermost abreast my accommodation in West Hollywood, as I frequently see buried prototypes aback I’m out for a walk. Typically, the cars are things that accept already been apparent like the new M3 or Rolls-Royce Ghost, but afresh I was afraid by some prototypes of the 2022 BMW 2 Series Coupe. Don’t get this abashed with BMW’s new four-door, front-wheel-drive 2 Series Gran Coupe, admitting — this is a absolute backup for the absolute two-door 2 Series and it will thankfully abide rear-wheel drive.
First of all, amuse absolve these awfully bleared iPhone photos. The cars bent me off bouncer and I wasn’t able to appropriately adapt to accurately abduction them. While the prototypes I saw were covered in a arced camo blanket and affected panels, I still got a appealing acceptable attending at the new 2 Series. The all-embracing accommodation are agnate to the accepted car, but the greenhouse looks alike added acceptable and upright, and cartel I say 2002-esque. It looked a little best and added than the accepted model, but still nice and compact.

Luckily, to accomplish up for my abominable photography, photos of an apparent 2 Series leaked out a few months ago, as you can see above. Thankfully there are no huge vertical kidneys like on the new 4 Series, but the new 2 does accept big, affiliated grilles. The bonanza designs are cool angular and the headlights are absurd while the taillights are blockier. All-embracing it’s not a massive change from the accepted model, but it is a lot added circuitous and busy.
The aboriginal ancestor I saw had ellipsoidal bankrupt tips, pointing to it actuality an agnate to the accepted M240i, which could be renamed M235i to fit aback in with BMW’s ambagious allotment strategy. Apprehend a turbocharged inline-six authoritative abutting to 350 horsepower, with an eight-speed automated chiral as a audible and a six-speed chiral as a possibility. All-wheel drive will be optional. The abject archetypal (potentially badged 228i) gets annular bankrupt pipes and will acceptable use a turbocharged four-cylinder with about 250 hp.
We haven’t been able to attending at the autogenous yet, but apprehend a ashen bottomward 4 Series vibe with two big screens and angular architecture elements. The 2 Series should abide a four-seater with a bound bank in the rear. It’s cryptic if there will abide to be a convertible archetypal as well; it wouldn’t be hasty if the droptop gets dead off, as that articulation is rapidly shrinking.
The new 2 Series could admission as anon as the end of the year afore activity on auction at some point in 2021. Pricing will acceptable break abutting to the accepted model’s abject amount of about $37,000 for the four-cylinder, with the six-cylinder costing about $10,000 more. Oh, and don’t worry, there will be a new M2. Our accompany at Autoblog got spy photos of it beforehand this anniversary (and they’re abundant nicer than mine).
