Awesome! Looks great, though a bit soft compared to the 1M.
So what I said is indeed true. The 1M will remain as a limited edition stunner

Even if they come up with proper M based on the current 1-series, it will be a hatchback.

The 2-series headlights look like a nice compromise between the 1-series and 3-series, quite rightly so!

I was expecting a connecting line between the headlight & the grille like in the new 3 series but instead BMW has just teased the headlights a bit & left them halfway, looks sharp

A very unfortunate incident occurred on the German Autobahn during testing of the 2 coupe;

Although pictures show we are dealing with a serious crash, the good news is the driver escaped with only minor injuries

M235i spotted again this time testing on the Nurburgring



The car that is supposed to hit the markets somewhere next year & surely has to be a worthy replacement for the incredible 1M Coupe.

BMW 2 Series Coupe Specs Leaked: 220i, 220d and M235i.

The base model at launch (in Europe) will be the 220i, equipped with a 2-liter N20 four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine that delivers 184 PS and 270 Nm (200 lb-ft) of torque. This car will do .1 l/100 km (38.5 mpg) for the manual gearbox and 5.7 l/100 km (41.2 mpg) for the automatic, while returning excellent performance off the line: 0 to 100 km/h in exactly 7 seconds.

For those wanting a little bit of extra frugalness, a 220d model will also be available, powered by the now familiar N47 unit with 184 HP and 380 Nm (280 lb-ft). This can return as little as 4.2 l/100km combined.

Perhaps the most exciting part of the 2 Series lineup, in the absence of a true M model, will be the M235i coupe. The leaked data appears to be for the rear-wheel drive model only, which gets from 0 to 100 km/h in 4.8 second with the automatic and 5 seconds with the manual gearbox.

Still not a proper M right? Looks extremely good though!
The headlight design is much better than the 1 and 3.

>>>

Whereas the inline four will be introduced in India for both petrol & diesels is a foregone conclusion, I have some doubts as to whether BMW will bring the inline six.

The argument may run like this :

1. This is an opportunity for many to buy into the brand, which they might have been hesitant because of the pricing of the X1/320d/328i...
2. Quite a few of these (first time) buyers will not prioritise driving dynamics over snob value, or comfort
3. The potential community of inline six buyers of the 2 might be miniscule, for drivers already using the brand might opt for the 3/4/5 for inline six options

Nightmarish for some of us!

Drive safe
