In 2015, a new variant will join the upcoming BMW 2 Series family. The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will come to market as a competitor to the Mercedes-Benz CLA and the A3 Sedan.

The 2 Series Gran Coupe will offer to customers the sleekness and design of a coupe with the practicality of a small sedan. BMW will place greater emphasis on the dynamics and typical BMW DNA when it comes to the design of the four-door coupe.

The exterior design is based on the 2 Series Coupe and Convertible models, but with a slightly longer platform to accommodate the sleek roof line and increased size, while the elongated roofline is lower, more rounded.

Rear-wheel drive is the platform of choice for the 2 Series models and the 2 Series Gran Coupe will make use of it as well. Under the hood, the 2 Series Gran Coupe will use the same powerplants as the coupe and convertible variants, a combination of four-cylinders in diesel and petrol. A high-end six-cylinder engine might be used for the 235i Gran Coupe. Or M235i Gran Coupe if BMW chooses to replace the 35i models with the M Performance Automobiles variant.

A choice between a six-speed or eight-speed automatic transmissions will be offered to customers.

    So is a 4 Series Gran Coupe next? What about an i8 Series Gran Coupe? I am really confused about BMWs model schemes these days. I understood when they said they were making all of the two door models even numbers and all of the odd number models 4 doors. Then they go and make all of these 4 door Gran Coupe models based on even number series? Kinda kills the need to rename the M3 Coupe the M4….should have just left it alone and called the M3 sedan the Gran Coupe…

    WTF? I thought the 2 series was a coupe and convertible only hence the even number?? Man its all fucked!!
