Munich. BMW consistently continues to pursue the brand’s current model offensive whilst developing an innovative vehicle concept for the premium compact segment. During the annual results press conference, BMW AG CEO Harald Krüger will announce the presentation of the first BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. With the sporty and elegant four-door coupe, the premium automobile manufacturer is adding to its range in the compact segment a particularly designoriented model for modern, urban target groups. The concept of a four-door coupe, already successful in higher vehicle classes, will in future combine a dynamic charisma and an expressive design with a high degree of everyday suitability also in the premium compact segment. The first BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will make its word debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019, with the worldwide market launch beginning in the spring of 2020. 
 
The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe sets new accents in individuality, aesthetics and emotion in the premium compact segment. It combines an emotive design with sportiness and the latest innovations in operation and connectivity technology. Therefore, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe offers the ideal prerequisites to attract new target groups to hallmark BMW driving pleasure. BMW already offers a unique range of compact models for various different requirements and target groups that is unmatched within the competitive environment. The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will once again create fresh impulses in this class. It builds on the latest BMW front-wheel drive architecture and shares a multitude of technological developments with the new BMW 1 Series, which will also be presented during the course of 2019.
 
The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has been conceived as a global offering that constitutes an attractive enrichment, especially for markets in which car buyers show a strong affinity for notchbacks. As an exclusive alternative to the classic saloon, the four-door coupe addresses all target groups that prefer a sophisticated design and a self-assured look in the compact segment as well.

somehow buying BMW have to have 3 things

 

1. Rear wheel drive 

 

2. 6 cylinder

 

3. handling of UDM

 

 

 

The gran coup is front wheel drive

 

3 cylinders or 4 cylinders. not sure if 6 cylinders will be available

 

Handling for front wheel drive may not be the same push that you desire

BMW cars in SG are heavily marked up by AD. An example, they actually make more than $100k for a mid range 5 series.

Official debut scheduled on 24 July. Stay tuned for 1st hand info. [flowerface]  [flowerface]

 

The first ever such model will be based on the FWD/AWD platform that also underpins the recently-unveiled new 1-Series hatchback. In keeping with BMW’s nomenclature, the model will be called the 2-Series Gran Coupe and will represent the Bavarians’ answer to the 2019 Mercedes-Benz CLA.

Shld be a 4 seater like the 4series GC?
CLA can sit 3 at the back so it would be a bonus if this 2GC is the same but I suppose coupes are meant to be 2 or 4seaters not 5 but in our local environment, think a 5seater would do better?

The hump in the middle is normally quite high as it was for RWD but with this car being FWD, it should be not so high? Just speculating on my part, need to see the car in the flesh. As long as it’s a bench rear seat, can squeeze in a 3rd person albeit cramp but if the design is like the 4GC then it would be strictly 4 seater.

can reference the new m135i, it's awd, so quite likely to have a hump in middle

 

ya should be a rear bench, at this price point, if they make it an exclusive 2+2, hard to sell.

 

i did sit in the 4gc. can sit 5.....just that the person in the middle open leg wide wide, haha
