The rumormill churns out that a BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will arrive in 2019, but what remains unclear is whether the compact four-door coupe will run on the current platform or on the second generation 2 Series.

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.

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.

The car not only speaks to the customers’ needs, but also to the economies of scale because the rear-wheel drive architecture is shared with the future 3, 5 and 7, each with different wheelbase and track width.

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.

If it arrives in 2019, the lifecycle of the 2 Series Gran Coupe will be a fairly short one since the second generation 2 Series will be out in 2021.

    F52 UKL 1 series sedan based on the Concept Compact Sedan, AND 2 series based RWD Gran Coupe for the rest of the world? That’d make 8 potential variants of the 1/2 series, vs 7 variants of the 3/4 series. BMW’s new product development team must be paid by the hour!

  2. Antonio Bošković says:

    i hope it will be a hatchback like the 4 series gc
