In 2013, BMW will launch a new family, the 2 Series. A spin-off from the new 1 Series, the 2 Series family will include the coupe and convertible variants.

Built on the F20 platform, the new 1 Series Coupe will move up in class and be sold under the 2 Series badge. The car will share some design cues with the recently unveiled 1er Hatchback, a controversial model that received mixed reviews.

At the front, the new 2 Series Coupe will feature a similar headlight design as the hatchback model. The front bumper is expected to have a more aggressive look and a lower stance.

At the rear, the taillights will receive the LED treatment and will continue to be designed with the usual BMW L-shape approach.

Engines will be shared with the 1 Series, and will include the 1.6-litre TwinPower turbocharged four-cylinder petrol unit, which currently offers up to 170 hp in the 118i. Among the diesel options will be a revised 2.0 liter, delivering up to 181 hp

The engine offerings for the US will include the new four-cylinder turbo engines, along with a higher-end six-cylinder engine.

By positioning the new coupe and convertible as 2 Series products, BMW will be able to sell them at a premium price while including some of the options featured in higher-end models, like the 3 or 5 Series.

    so you are saying this car is ugly due to the rear lights that you can hardly see lol. why hate, it looks like a mini 6 er. this car is a good rendering but it wont look like this which is  a shame the m sport version would look even better,

    Hmm, keep in mind that recent renderings are so close to the real product, I have a feeling the 2er will look just like this

    A 2-series M Coupe would be amazing!

      today M3 E92 is soo big and heavy it could be mini M6, M3 E90 is soo big and heavy it’s M5 while M5 is something like M7…new m3 will be even bigger…

      imagine this: M2 normal today M car (read, for losers)
      while M2 Sport Evolution (successor to M3 Sport Evo)
      enlarge N43 engine to 2.5 L and 250-280 hp (of course naturally aspirated high rev – something like 7500 rpm, no air con, radio and other stupid stuff, manual gearbox – weight around 1200 kg! I would buy it any time over any modern M3.
      E46 M3 CSL was the last true M3

        oh yeah, and how many people would buy such a car like that?

        • Mateo

          as i said, M2 as normal M car (air con, navigation, mp3, luxury seats etc.) and as CSL for enthusiasts!

  • Buckeye

    This car really appeals to me aesthetically.  I think it looks much nicer than the current 1 series and agree that a flared out M2 would look fantastic.   I’m an E90 hater, I never really got used to the Camry-esque-ness of it.  I’m glad to see a more aggressive looking car.  The F30 3 series looks really similar so far.

  • Slomonov

    These are not real BMWs, I’m sticking to my E90 and looking forward to the F30!

  • Manchester Man

    i wonder how the 1 M will look like in that model.

    I have been a fan of the marque for decades. I had at least a dozen BMWs and still own 3. This is the ugliest rendering, and to be honest, the ugliest design language from BMW in a long time. I realize this is a rendering by an artist, but new cars are no better. WTF are you doing, BMW?

    If it would looks pretty, the 1-series will be a truly disaster from looks and sales, so the 2 can’t be pretty!

    Regarding the endless conflict between Audi and BMW on BMW Blog, I always considered it could be a good idea to do something on it…Here is my action:
    I conducted an academic research on the use of “comparative ads” in premium car segment. I highly appreciate the value of your voice, please let me know your stand on the war between Audi and BMW!

    This is my questionnaire: https://www.isurvey.soton.ac.uk/3063
    Short! and easy!
    Contact me on Facebook: Mark Chen —if you want to express more!

    btw, apparently BMW can’t afford the danger of a big move on design for best-selling 3-series, it’s not the same business as 1-series, which is just receiving a bold redesign from a crazy designer!

    I love everything about this… EXCEPT the headlights. I just can’t get past the ugly pointed slant towards the kidney grilles, and for me it kills the look of the car. From every other angle though, it’s a sweet little ride. Hopefully BMW will fix this in the 2014 M.Y.

    A little confusing — if the new 1 series coupe will be a 2 series, will there be such a thing as a 1 series coupe anymore?

    Just a sloppy rendering.  Can beat the real thing.
