Earlier today we showed you the BMW 2-Series Coupe and the M235i Coupe, but we didn’t tell you anything about the 2-Series Coupe with the M Sport Package. This option comprises bespoke suspension tuning such as a 10-millimetre drop in ride height and 17-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design.
The design is also updated as the 2-Series Coupe features aerodynamically optimised body elements such as a new front bumper with large air intakes, new side skirts and an air diffuser for the rear apron. A new design for the BMW kidney grille is also available as well as a exhaust tailpipe embellisher in high-gloss chrome.
Inside, we find aluminum door sill strips bearing the M logo, sports seats for the passenger and the driver, Aluminum Hexagon interior trim strips with accent strip in Estoril Blue, special dial design for the instrument cluster and M driver’s footrest. An M sports leather steering wheel is also available.
The body design of the BMW 2-Series Coupe well reflects the specific vehicle concept behind this new BMW offering. The 2-Series Coupe comes with a number of design elements that identify it as a premium coupe from the BMW brand.
For instance, the BMW 2-Series Coupe features a three-box body with a long bonnet, a clearly defined boot and a low-slung silhouette. This compact premium coupe also features doors with frameless windows and a stretched roofline that flows smoothly to the rear section. Overall, the exterior of the BMW 2-Series Coupe well expresses its ultra-sporty driving attributes, which are in turn made possible by a selection of powerful engines and innovative chassis technology.
Among these powerful engines is the four-cylinder mill fitted in the BMW 220i Coupe, delivering around 135 kW (184 hp) of max output. There is also the six-cylinder in-line engine that delivers 240 kW (326 hp) for the new BMW M235i Coupe, which is considered as the most powerful petrol engine-powered unit of the BMW M Performance Automobile line-up.
In terms of dimensions, the new BMW 2-Series Coupe measures 4,432 mm in length, 1,774 mm in width and 1,418 mm in height, with a wheelbase pegged at 2,690 mm. This means that the new BMW 2-Series Coupe is around 108 mm and 72 mm longer than the BMW 1-Series and the outgoing BMW 1-Series Coupe, respectively. This also means that the new BMW 2-Series Coupe is around 32 mm wider and around 5 mm lower than the previous model.
Aside from having a wheelbase that is longer by 30 mm than its predecessor, the new BMW 2-Series Coupe also has tracks that are wider by 41 mm on the front (at 1,521 mm) and by 43 mm on the rear (at 1,556 mm).
These growths in dimensions allowed the new BMW 2-Series Coupe to offer a more spacious interior as well as around 20 liters of more boot capacity to 390 liters. As designed, the new BMW 2-Series Coupe is more aerodynamically efficient than its predecessor and the BMW 1-Series. In fact, the BMW 220i Coupe features a coefficient of drag value of 0.29 Cd.
