Will debut in November at the 2019 L.A. Auto Show
BMW will soon offer a more practical variant of the 2 Series. A four-door version of the small car will make its debut at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show in November, the automaker confirmed today.
Although the current 2 Series coupe and convertible are rear-drive based, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will sit on the automaker’s latest front-drive architecture. We spotted early prototypes driving in the snow, so it’s likely that the model will also offer all-wheel drive. It will ride on the UKL platform like the 1 Series, which will be redesigned later this year but isn’t expected for North America. BMW says the 2 Series Gran Coupe will share “a multitude of technological developments” with the new 1 Series.
BMW showed off the 2 Series Gran Coupe’s back end in a new teaser image. We can’t tell much from the photo, but it looks like it sports a different set of taillights than those on the current 2 Series coupe and convertible. A tasteful spoiler complements the lights.
The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe goes on sale globally in the spring of 2020.
