The new BMW 2 Series Coupé has rear-wheel drive

When the new BMW 2 Series was announced, we thought it would be another front-wheel drive BMW, as it was expected to be constructed on the 1 Series platform, just like the 2 Series Gran Coupe and 2 Series Active Tourer.

However, BMW has announced different plans for the coupe deuce, which has gained more than a great reputation thanks to the current generation until yesterday. For the previous two coupes, the opinion of the biggest fans of sports driving was valid, that it is a car with extremely balanced driving dynamics.

Apparently, the successor is even better, considering that the mechanics are largely repackaged from the 4 Series Coupe. In fact, this is a four, only reduced. The only thing it shares with the Series 1 and other members of the Series 2 is the interior.

The weight distribution is ideal, in a ratio of 50:50, with a very low center of gravity. A high-performance version, the M240i xDrive Coupe, was immediately introduced, powered by the well-known 374-horsepower three-liter in-line six.

Of course, for those who want the top driving characteristics of the coupe but with slightly weaker engines, four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines are reserved, which we also know well from other BMW models. For example, the 220i is powered by a 2.0 turbo-petrol with 245 hp, while the 220d under the hood has a turbo-diesel of 190 hp.

Compared to its predecessor, the new BMW 2 Series Coupé is slightly longer, by 105 millimeters. Of that, the wheelbase has been increased by 51 millimeters, while the car is 64 millimeters wider. It is 28 millimeters lower, with an extended wheelbase of 54 mm forward and 31 mm rear.

A press release states that there are two individual seats in the back, which does not mean that it will not be registered for five people. Compared to its predecessor, the trunk has also been increased. It has 20 liters more, so now it has a total of 390 liters of usable space.

The design is also specific. BMW states that the leitmotif was the 02 series, ie the forerunner of the trio. It will have the ability to unlock and start via a digital key, the traditional M Performance package and many other elements that adorn larger BMW models.
