BMW Australia has announced details of its second even digit model, the BMW 2 Series Coupé. The successor to the 1 Series Coupé promises to deliver an even higher level of dynamics and improved occupant comfort.
Three models are available from launch – the 220i, 220d and M235i.
Priced from $50,500 plus on-roads, the entry-level 220i Coupé sports a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine developing 135kW of power and 270Nm of peak torque from 1,250rpm. This is enough to propel the two-door coupé from 0-100km/h in 7.0 seconds whilst consuming just 6.0L/100km.
Next up is the 220d Coupé that is priced from $52,500. It’s 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbodiesel engine produces 135kW of power and 380Nm of torque. It sends the car 100km/h from a standstill in 7.1 seconds while returning 4.4L/100km.
At $79,900, the M235i Coupé is equipped with a 3.0-litre twin-turbo straight six that churns out 240kW of power and 450Nm of torque – 5kW more than the highly popular M135i it replaces. It will sprint from 0-100km/h in just 4.8 seconds.
All models come standard with the 8-speed sports automatic transmission which includes gear shift paddles and launch control function.
According to Phil Horton, Managing Director for BMW Group Australia, the new 2 Series Coupé is sure to get your heart racing.
“The 2 Series Coupé blends stunning good looks with the kind of incredible dynamic talent that can only be delivered by a rear wheel drive car,” he said.
“Add to this the generous specification loaded with the latest in innovative technology, and we are very confident that we have another winner!” said Mr Horton.
The BMW 2 Series will be available in Australian showrooms from March. Full specification will be announced closer to launch.
