BMW reveals the new 2 Series Coupe


The replacement of the 1 Series Coupe is here and is now called 2 Series Coupe. BMW already used the "2" as a model designation for the 1966 BMW 1600-2. Unlike its predecessor, this new model moves away from the 1 Series and becomes a standalone car that is also larger in size and features a new design.

This new model is 26 millimeters wider than its predecessor (at 1,774 millimeters), 72 millimeters longer (4,432 millimeters), has a 30-millimeter longer wheelbase (2,690 millimeters) and wider tracks (front: 1,521 millimeters, +41 millimeters; rear: 1,556 millimeters, +43 millimeters). On the other hand, the height decreases by 5mm to 1,418 millimeters.

This all means that there is now more interior room and that the volume of the trunk increased by 20 liters to 390 liters. The aerodynamic of the 2 Series was also improved and now features a Cd of 0.29 for the BMW 220i Coupe.
