The new F44 BMW 2 Series Gran coup will soon be debuted, but so far, the German carmaker has released some photos of a development machine wrapped in multi-colored camouflage to get us all excited.
Like the F40 1 series, the 2 Series GC will have a front-wheel drive platform, with the range-tapping variant called the M235i xDrive. It is powered by the most powerful four-cylinder engine of the BMW Group, a B48 2.0-liter turbocharger that develops 306 PS (302 HP) and 450 Nm torque.
Although there is no mention of the transmission that will be paired with the mill, it is probably an eight-speed automatic Steptronic Sport automatic unit. BMW notes that a Torsen differential differential is part of the driveway, along with its XDrive all-wheel drive system.
The actuator's continuous relegation technology (ARB) technology (adapted from the Y3's) seen on the 1 will also be present here, and is supported by a standard BMW performance control (yes moment distribution) system.
In terms of styling, the M235i is quite aggressive-looking, with great introductions to the lower apron that are further divided into air when needed. Meanwhile, the upper part of the front of the machine is reminiscent of the last 1 Series, as you will find a conical kidney grille in the front that has a mesh pattern also found on other M performance models.
The bonnet crutches are quite similar to the hatchbacks, but the point of distinction is the shape of the headlamps, which have a small base at their base. On the sides, the roofing is lower than in the 1 series Sedan, and this leads to the rear deck which has a small lip spoiler on the boot.
On the rear, there are L-shaped parts, a boot-mounted size plate and twin trapezoidal exhaust pipes, with a subtle diffuser sandwich between them. There are no pictures of the interior, but the 2 series of green cups should share the same cabin as the 1st series, but we have to wait for an official to confirm this.
Following the 2-series Green Cup online debut, this model will be presented in the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019 before a global market launch begins in spring 2020.
