The BMW 2-Series Coupe was unveiled in October 2013, which means it was time for a small update. As a result, the Bavarian manufacturer introduced today an updated 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine on the 220d Coupe, delivering 190 hp (140 kW) and 400 Nm of torque. If you don’t remember, the current version of the engine delivers 184 hp (135 kW) and 380 Nm of torque.

Bolted to the standard 6-speed manual transmission, the new diesel engine offers an average fuel consumption of 4.4 to 4.1 l/100 km, while CO2 emissions are 115 to 107 g/km.

As an option, the 2015 BMW 220d Coupe is available with an 8-speed automatic Steptronic transmission that makes the vehicle even more fuel-efficient because it needs between 4.1 to 3.8 l/100 km, with CO2 emissions between 107 and 99 grams per km.

The BMW 220d Coupe is also faster than the previous version and when equipped with the six-speed manual gearbox it accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.1 seconds (0.1 seconds faster), while the 8-speed automatic transmission drops the acceleration time to 7.0 seconds.

Thanks to the power increase, the maximum trailer load of the BMW 220d Coupe increases by 300 kg to 1,500 kg.
