the first info and photos

BMW unveils the first information and images of the new generation of the 2 Series, which will start production this summer 2021.

Launched in 2014 on the basis of the Coupé and Cabriolet versions of the 1 Series, the BMW 2 Series is about to benefit from a whole new generation, which will be launched this year. The Bavarian firm has just unveiled a first teaser of the model, with first official information as well as photos on which we discover the future Series 2 Coupé still camouflaged, under development and dynamic tuning, on the road and on the racetrack.

BMW 2 Series Coupé (2021): true to rear-wheel drive and in-line 6 cylinders

May the brand’s aficionados be reassured: unlike the new generation of BMW 1 Series, criticized for having gone to front-wheel drive and four cylinders, the new 2 Series will remain true to propulsion, as well as the six-cylinder in-line engine. In addition, load distribution will be close to 50:50, its chassis will be stiffened by 12%, and its technology will be optimized for more sportiness.

The M240i xDrive version will crown the range: it will be powered by a gasoline engine turbocharged inline six, developing a power of 374 horses, transmitted to the four-wheel drive by means of a 8-speed automatic transmission. An electronic differential will optimize traction and cornering stability, distributing power between the rear wheels automatically: according to BMW, “The transmission of power to the rear wheels is ideally suited to sporty and demanding turns, including easily controllable drift maneuvers. “

A new progressive damping system will be there, and an electronically controlled SelectDrive M suspension will be offered as an option. DirectDrive steering, more precise and requiring less effort when maneuvering, will also be offered as an option: BMW is already announcing a “Sporty driving pleasure in the tradition of the BMW 2002, perfectly controllable handling in all situations, fascinating cornering dynamics, optimized traction in all weather and road conditions, and perfectly balanced ride comfort”… Time will tell if all these promises will be there!

Production of the new BMW 2 Series Coupé will start at end of summer 2021, and its prices will be revealed later.
