2022 BMW 2 Series Coupe Arrives With New Looks

Along with the 3 Series, the 2 Series Coupe has been one of BMW’s few universally attractive vehicles in recent years. It doesn’t have flashy looks, but the driving experience is tactile and enjoyable. The new 2 Series was leaked this week, and the initial question for all BMW enthusiasts was: Has BMW screwed with a successful formula too much, or is the second-generation 2 Series a success? So, here it is, and that is the question we will seek to answer in the next minutes.

Modifications on the 2 series Coupe

It is obvious that first impressions are considerably more optimistic than the most recent 4 Series. Compared to the previous 230i, the new 2 Series in 230i trim is 4.3 inches longer and 2.6 inches wider. It is an inch lower, and on a two-inch larger wheelbase. The tracks on the 230i have been expanded by 2.8 inches in front and 1.9 inches in the rear, and by 2.5/2.4 inches on the M240i xDrive. These modifications give it a broader, more aggressive posture while yet maintaining a sporty, compact appearance. On the plus side, the kidney grille with vertical air flaps looks considerably superior to the grille on the 4 Series. We also appreciate the strong fenders, small overhangs, and the fact that the Hofmeister kink hasn’t vanished.

According to BMW, the smaller headlights got inspiration from BMW 2002 models, so they only feature a single circular full-LED headlamp. Hence, it is a significant divergence from nearly every other current BMW. However, we can’t expect manufacturers to “create something new” while still clinging too firmly to the past. The 2 Series has a cheeky, boldface in this case, which we believe works nicely. Exhaust tips on 230i vehicles are rounded, whereas M240i xDrive versions feature bigger trapezoidal ones.

The new 2 Series is equally as entertaining to drive as its predecessor. This is a rear-wheel-drive vehicle, as opposed to the 2 Series Gran Coupe (or one with a rear-biased AWD system in the case of xDrive variants).

The 230i has a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbocharged engine that produces 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque, increasing seven hp and 37 lb-ft. It will reach 60 mph in 5.5 seconds in RWD form. The basic transmission is an eight-speed automatic with launch control.

M240i xDrive of BMW 2 series

The M240i xDrive is powered by the classic 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbocharged engine. It produces 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft torque. Torque got improvement, while a healthy 47 hp boosts power.

The M240i will reach 60 mph in 4.1 seconds with AWD traction. If fully outfitted, both versions have a peak speed of 155 mph. BMW claims that the new eight-speeder has quicker shift patterns and is more efficient. Shift paddles add to the excitement, and an optional Sprint feature for the 230i shifts the gearbox into the lowest available gear.

The M240i xDrive comes standard with an M Sport rear differential. In most situations, this is an RWD vehicle unless the driving conditions require the extra traction of AWD. The original 2 Series was a delight to drive, but wider tracks, a 12% increase in torsional stiffness, and a near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution should make this one even better.

The M240i xDrive comes standard with model-specific electric power steering, and the M240i xDrive has Variable Sport steering, which makes low-speed movements simpler while firming things up when required.

Further upgrades and prices

The new 2 Series has the iDrive seven operating systems with an 8.8-inch central touchscreen for infotainment. Analog gauges and a 5.1-inch driver information display are standard, while the 12.3-inch digital display of the BMW Live Cockpit Professional is available. In addition, they will include a bigger 10.25-inch center touchscreen in this update. For the first time, BMW’s tiniest coupe features a head-up display, which projected information like speed and alerts. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto come standard, and they may upgrade the base 10-speaker Hi-Fi sound system to a 14-speaker Harman Kardon system.

The 230i Coupe with RWD will start at $36,350, a $450 increase over the similar previous model. The M240i xDrive will set you back $48,550, a $200 premium. These rates do not include a $995 destination fee. The 2022 BMW 2 Series Coupe will hit the market in November 2021. BMW claims 230i xDrive and M240i RWD versions will follow, although they didn’t disclose the pricing announcement for these variations.
