BMW’s 2 Series family will get a newborn in the near future. After the Coupe and Convertible, a Gran Coupe model is in works and it was spotted on video for the first time. An pre-FEP (pre-final evaluation prototype) 2 Series Gran Coupe went out on the Nurburgring for some hot laps.

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.

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 will sport short overhangs at the front and a rear-end 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 engine lineup is expected to comprise of 3- and 4-bangers petrol and diesel units, along with a PHEV version. An M2 Gran Coupe is also said to be in works.

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.
