There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, however that most likely will not get here up until 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we anticipate no significant changes to the 2-Series lineup.
As a carryover, we anticipate the whole 2-Series lineup to stay the same aesthetically, so we expect the very same sharp appearances as in the past, specifically in the M240 model. That stated, among the very best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is stylish enough for those who like that and shy enough for the daily purchaser. The absence of change will likely continue within, where its styling takes a little bit of a hit due to some more affordable plastics and other less-than-ideal products.
We likewise anticipate the list of basic features to stay the very same when the 2019 2-Series strikes display rooms. If this shows to be the case, try to find it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automated environment control, a 6.5-inch display screen, and a rearview video camera.
Under its hood is another location where we expect no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We anticipate the base engine in the 230 to stay a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horse power and 290 pound-feet of torque. This engine will likely continue to couple with an eight-speed automated and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive.
Likewise search for the M240’s 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine’s power to stay at 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. While the eight-speed automated transmission will most likely stay basic in the M240, it’s worth keeping in mind that a no-cost optional six-speed handbook is likewise offered.
For such a little coupe, security is excellent in the existing BMW 2-Series, as it got a Top Safety Pick ranking from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” score in the headlight test and its absence of a passenger-side small-overlap test. Without any changes on the horizon, we anticipate this to stay the very same.
Though there is absolutely nothing main yet, we anticipate to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in display rooms in late summer season of 2018. Without any changes coming, we anticipate pricing to stay just like the existing model, which begins with $34,945 for the 230 and peaks at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (location charges consisted of). Competitors for the 2019 2-Series will consist of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
