The news last week was that BMW is working on a 2 Series Gran Coupe scheduled to arrive in 2019. According to German media, BMW’s Chief Development Officer, Klaus Fröhlich, is advocating for the rear-wheel drive Gran Coupe to join the coupe and convertible, but the project has yet to be approved.

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.

The 2 Series Gran Coupe was said to sport short overhangs at the front and rear with a coupe-like profile all around. Because of the stretch to accommodate a slightly lengthened platform, the elongated roofline is lower, more rounded. The rendering seen here was created by auto motor und sport and uses current design cues from other BMW cars. The actual model is likely to have a modern look based on a new design language which will debut with the next X3.

The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is said to be a rear-wheel drive four-door coupe as a competitor to the Mercedes-Benz CLA.
