That is the second time we have seen the upcoming 2 Sequence Coupe on spy photographs, but it surely’s the primary have a look at the inside. A have a look at these photographs exhibits that the inside of the brand new Coupé will look precisely like the inside of the two Sequence Gran Coupé.
For BMW it is smart to desire a comparable inside for the pair of two. Nevertheless, that is exceptional as a result of, regardless of the identical identify, they’re utterly totally different automobiles. The Gran Coupé runs on a front-wheel drive chassis that’s shared with the X1 and X2, whereas this 2-series coupé is used on the CLAR rear-wheel drive platform. Many different BMWs at the moment are utilizing the CLAR platform, together with the brand new three Sequence.
The inside of the two Sequence Gran Coupé is slightly cheaper than dearer BMWs, however the packaging and the expertise provided are an enormous enchancment over the present 2 Sequence. These giant, double digital shows are widespread in all BMWs bought as we speak. The low tunnel additionally offers the cabin an airier really feel. We will see the shift lever for an computerized transmission on this mannequin. BMW as we speak sells the 230i, M240i and M2 fashions with handbook transmission. So we maintain our fingers crossed that this stays the identical for the subsequent era automobile. Not less than we would like a handbook choice within the M240i and M2.
So far as the outside is worried, there’s not a lot to see right here that now we have not but seen. The large brakes of this tester, the vast tires, the aggressive double exhaust, the low skirts and the rear lip spoiler present us that that is the M Sport mannequin. It’s possible that BMW will proceed to make use of the M240i identify when launching this mannequin. We anticipate a daily 230i and a way more excessive M2. The bulging fenders already look nice, and the proportions of this automobile are proper. It is nothing aside from the bulbous Snooze Fest 2-Sequence Gran Coupé, and we’re excited to see it.
Lastly we are going to deal with the elephant (or beaver) who will not be within the room this time. Sure, we reside in fixed concern that BMW will plant a big kidney grille on each new automobile. This 2 Sequence doesn’t seem like it has a big grille, however a smaller nostril as within the present automobile. It’s going to in all probability look nice.
We anticipate this mannequin to fall in 2022, so launch subsequent 12 months is just not out of the query. When the Excessive-Po-M2 will observe is just not but solely sure.
