Regulars here would remember that we posted in detail when it emerged that the BMW 2 Series Coupe would make its debut on October 25. The 2 Series is all set to become the next model in the car maker’s ‘even numbered’ Series of cars . As we have been telling, BMW has devised a new nomenclature system under which all the sedans and hatchbacks would get ‘odd numbered’ Series names and all the coupes, convertibles and gran coupes will get ‘even numbered’ Series names.
Seen here are some images of the BMW M235i, which reveal a lot about how the upcoming 2 Series would look like. As can be seen, the car looks a lot more appealing than the 1 Series hatchback and unlike what was being speculated, the car doesn’t get a 3’er like front fascia. Overall, the car looks much more proportional than the 1 Series hatchback and looks every bit a Bimmer should.
The 2 Series Coupe will borrow its underpinnings from the 1 series hatchback and will go on sale in three four variants- 218i, 225i, 220d and M235i.
- Powering the 228i will be a 2.0 litre turbo petrol engine that has a max power of 240 bhp.
- Powering the 220d will be a 2.0 litre turbo diesel motorthat has a max power of 181 bhp.
- The M235i would be powered by a 3.0 litres turbocharged 6 cylinder engine that has a max power of 320 bhp. The M235i is expected to have a 0-100 kmph sprint of 4.9 seconds. This is the same engine that will also power the M2 and will have a higher output of 350 bhp.
