SPIED: 2022 BMW 2 Series Coupé

A couple of revealing spy photos of the upcoming G42 BMW 2 Series Coupé has been leaked online over the weekend.

Posted by a member of 2addict forums on a Facebook group, the photos show the 2 Series inside what appears to be a vehicle lift in Germany.

Significantly, what’s immediately obvious – and possibly to the relief of many – is the absence of BMW’s gigantic grille that is quickly becoming commonplace in its new range. Instead, the two-door model sports a stubbier evolution of the current car’s double kidney grille flanked by a pair of deeply set concave headlights.

Around the back, the rear fascia is more squared-off than before and features a set of smoked taillights, chunky black diffuser and accentuated lip spoiler.

The car shown is also likely sporting a M Sports bodykit, if not the sports-oriented M240i; thanks to the ‘M’ badges lurking on the front and rear of the car.

Unlike the front- and all-wheel drive 2 Series Gran Coupe range which shares it name, the G24 will retain its rear-wheel drive layout and the availability of straight-six engines. It is expected to be based on the same CLAR platform as the latest 3 Series, making it the only compact-sized RWD BMW.

The new 2 Series Coupé is expected to be revealed in 2021, followed by an M2 flagship further down the track.
