A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE BMW 2 SERIES MODELS.

THE FIRST GENERATION OF THE 2 SERIES.

BMW 2 Series Coupé (F22).

The successor to the BMW 1 Series Coupé set its own visual accents in 2013 and emphasized the vehicle's sporty character even more clearly with its flared rear wheel arches, athletic rear end and striking silhouette with sloping roofline. Following the model update in 2017, new front and rear lights ensured an even more commanding appearance. The front headlights featured LED technology as standard.

Agile engines delivered dynamic propulsion across the range, whether with a three-cylinder gasoline engine with a displacement of 1.5 liters or the M models, whose CS variant produced a brawny 450 hp (331 kW). The chassis quickly showed that these compact vehicles also carried the BMW DNA, with precise, clearly defined steering that ensured control in every situation.

Inside, the driver was supported by a wide range of assistance systems, such as active cruise control, which reacts to the speed of the traffic in front of the vehicle. In addition, infotainment systems able to stream music from the leading online libraries promised pure entertainment while on the road.

Production period: 2013 – 2021

Engines: 1.5 – 3.0 liters (100 – 331 kW, 136 – 450 hp), 3 & 6-cylinder

Length/width/height: 4,432 – 4,468 mm/1,774 mm/1,390 – 1,418 mm

BMW 2 Series Convertible (F23).

The BMW 2 Series Convertible replaced its predecessor, the BMW 1 Series Convertible, in 2015. As with the Coupé, the sporty accents were now much more apparent, for example in the Convertible's shoulder line, which extended from the hood over the side beading to the vehicle's muscular rear. The fabric roof could be opened and closed at speeds of up to 50 km/h. Combined with the BMW 2 Series Convertible's agile steering, this ensured an even more direct connection to the road.

The same engines found in the Coupé enabled this compact, soft-top car to deliver a unique form of driving pleasure. The Convertible made no compromises – either in terms of aesthetics or driving performance.

Production period: 2015 – 2021

Engines: 1.5 – 3.0 liters (100 – 331 kW, 136 – 450 hp), 3 & 6-cylinder

Length/width/height: 4,432 – 4,468 mm/1,774 mm/1,390 – 1,418 mm

BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé (F44).

In 2020, the BMW 2 Series welcomed a new addition with no direct predecessor: the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé. Exceptional through and through, it simply exudes confidence down to the last detail – from the BMW kidney grille with mesh design and an elaborate, three-dimensional structure, to the frameless doors and the sideline, which is raised towards the rear and creates a striking contrast with the sloping roof. Performance-oriented aesthetics meet individuality and extravagance!
This concept continues inside the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé, where the optional fully digital BMW Live Cockpit Professional with two optional 10.25" screens and heads-up display shows the driver all relevant information in every situation.

In addition to the 3 and 4-cylinder turbocharged engines, some of which feature adjustable charge vanes, optional 7 or 8-speed Steptronic transmissions also ensure peerless driving performance.

Production period: 2020 – present

Engines: 1.5 - 2.0 liters (85 – 225 kW, 116 – 306 hp), 3 & 4-cylinder

Length/width/height: 4,526 mm/1,800 mm/1,420 mm

BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer (F46).

The perfect combination of dynamics and flexibility: With an optional third row of seats, the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer can accommodate up to seven people. However, thanks to the 3 and 4-cylinder TwinPower turbo engines and the characteristic front with impressive double kidney grille, it remains every bit as athletic as its smaller stable mates. Additional practicality is ensured by the large doors, long wheelbase and short overhangs. Optimum road holding is a given thanks to the single-joint strut-type axles at the front and the use of lightweight, high-strength materials in the chassis, which endows the BMW 2 Series Gran Tourer with agile and precise steering. Optionally available: BMW xDrive all-wheel drive and dual-clutch Steptronic sports transmission for even faster, smoother gear changes.

In 2018, the legendary BMW kidney grille grew even bigger as the result of the model update – and is now flanked by all-new LED headlights. The new front apron also lends the entire vehicle an even more charismatic appearance.

Production period: 2015 – present

Engines: 1.5 – 2.0 liters (75 – 141 kW, 102 – 192 hp), 3 & 4-cylinder

Length/width/height: 4,556 – 4,568 mm/1,800 mm/1,641 mm

THE SECOND GENERATION OF THE 2 SERIES.

BMW 2 SERIES COUPÉ (G42).

The BMW 2 Series Coupé, released in 2021, continues the tradition of sportive, compact but powerful vehicles: an emotional driving experience thanks to the rear drive unit and agile handling. The highly efficient, high-performance engines enable powerful acceleration in all driving conditions. And the optional adjustable sport steering ensures immediate response, minimal steering effort and precision when driving. With a 31 mm wider track compared to its predecessor, the vehicle boasts a superior visual appearance. Likewise, the new single-frame double kidney in which, instead of bars, kidney flaps open or close depending on the cooling demand required. The bi-LED single headlights are reminiscent of coupé legends such as the BMW 2002, and under the lights, triangular air intakes create a sporty appearance. Triangles are often repeated in the BMW 2 Series’ Coupé design – as embossing in the inner door panels for example.

With the BMW Digital Key your smartphone will be able to open and lock the vehicle or even start up the engine. And if you are ever unsure whether you have locked your car – you can do so at any time while on the road via the MyBMW app.

Production period: 2021 – today

Engines: 2.0 – 3.0 liters (135 – 275 kW, 184 – 374 hp), 4- & 6-cylinder

Length/width/height: 4537 mm/1838 mm/1390 mm

FUEL CONSUMPTION AND CO2 EMISSIONS.

  • BMW 2 Series Coupé:
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 8.0–4.8
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 185–125

    BMW 2 Series Coupé M Automobile:
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 8.0
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 185

    BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé:
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 7.6–4.5
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 173–119

    BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé M Automobile:
    Fuel consumption in l/100 km (combined): 7.6–7.5
    CO2 emissions in g/km (combined): 173–172


    The values of fuel consumptions, CO2 emissions and energy consumptions shown were determined according to the European Regulation (EC) 715/2007 in the version applicable at the time of type approval. The figures refer to a vehicle with basic configuration in Germany and the range shown considers optional equipment and the different size of wheels and tires available on the selected model.

    The CO2 efficiency specifications are determined according to Directive 1999/94/EC and the European Regulation in its current version applicable. The values shown are based on the fuel consumption, CO2 values and energy consumptions according to the NEDC cycle for the classification.

    When charging times are shown they can be affected by a number of factors such as type of charger, voltage supplied to the charger/car and type of current (AC or DC) supplied to the charger/car. The car also plays a role in charging times as it can be set by the driver to accept various different amperage and should preconditioning be used to heat or cool the vehicle while charging this will also affect the charging time.

    The basis for the calculation of the charging times for 100 km range is the electric consumption of the vehicle based on the use of a high-Powered Charging station (HPC) or charging type and current as indicted in the literature above. The testing procedure measures are based on a 23 degrees Celsius battery start and ambient temperature with certification values excluding additional auxiliary consuming devices and systems within the vehicle such as seat heating, displays, air conditioning.

    Individual consumption (fuel economy) may differ due to driving profile, vehicle load profile, auxiliary consumer usage, temperature, and ambient conditions. Consumption is based on WLTP or NEDC (whichever is indicated) best case conditions and is independently tested for BMW Group. If you are comparing this range with other models or brands make sure they are stating the same WLTP or NEDC testing regime. These results can be used to compare vehicles on a close to “like for like” basis but are unlikely to be achieved in real world conditions for reasons including temperature variation, driving conditions and the use of the auxiliary systems referred to above.
