The story to here

July 7: The 2022 BMW 2 Series Coupe has been officially revealed after what feels like an endless supply of leaked and spy photography.

The final product paints a compelling picture, with inimitable styling which both conforms and spearheads aesthetic elements of BMW’s current design language.

Based on a modified version of the CLAR platform currently used by the G20 BMW 3 Series, the new 2 Series sits longer, wider, and lower than the car it replaces.

BMW Australia has confirmed we can expect to see the new coupe land Down Under at the end of 2021.

Wheels understands that, from launch, two model variants will be offered locally – the 220i and the M240i xDrive – and all Australian delivered cars will come with the M Sport pack as standard.

This means, for the first time, Munich’s 2 Series Coupe performance ‘M-light’ option, the M240i, won’t be available with rear-wheel drive.

Nor will the new compact two-door coupe come with a manual gearbox. Presently, it would appear the eight-speed ZF torque converter auto is the only option, and chances are, fans of three pedals will have to wait until the new M2 is unveiled in 2022.

Drivetrains, performance, and fuel economy

The entry-level 220i will be powered by BMW’s turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine, which produces 135kW and 300Nm.

Drive will be sent to the rear wheels through ZF’s aforementioned eight-speed auto, and BMW claims a 0-100km/h time of 7.5 seconds.

Fuel economy on the WLTP combined cycle is rated at 6.3L/100km.

The range-topping M240i xDrive will be powered by the German brand’s familiar and formidable B58 twin-scroll turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder motor.

Power is rated at 285kW (25kW more than the old M240i) and 500Nm, with drive being sent to all four wheels through the same eight-speed auto.

Quoted performance is quite remarkable considering this is BMW’s cheapest ‘M’ coupe, with 0-100km/h said to take just 4.3 seconds.

To put that number in perspective, the last generation F20 BMW M4 Competition is only 0.3 of a second faster.

The M240i xDrive returns a WLTP-certified combined fuel cycle figure of 8.1L/100km.

Dimensions and chassis

Being based on the G20 3 Series’s larger CLAR modular platform, albeit with a fair few modifications, the new two-door coupe is noticeably larger than the car it replaces.

In fact, the new coupe is 105mm longer, 64mm wider, and has a wheelbase measuring 51mm more than the outgoing F22 2 Series.

The new car also sits 28mm lower, and track widths both front and rear have been bumped up too – 54mm front and 31mm rear for the standard car and 63mm front and 35mm rear for the M240i xDrive.

Couple these stats with increased body rigidity and a near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution, and you’ve got the recipe for a car with the potential for a much more dynamic chassis than its predecessor.

The G42 2 Series scores some attractive new LED headlights, as well as a more subtle grille than some of its larger siblings.

There’s a pronounced ‘power bulge’ in the car’s bonnet and box-style flared wheel arches which give the car an aggressive look.

Overall, it appears the new coupe has closed the gap to BMW’s fully fledged 2 Series M-Sport product, the upcoming G87 M2.

For Australia, 18-inch M-Sport alloy wheels will come as standard on the 220i, while larger, lightweight 19-inch alloy wheels wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport tyres will be fitted to the M240i xDrive.

Inside, the coupe is fitted with a familiar, albeit more upmarket, interior we’ve seen on other current BMW models such as the 1 Series hatch and 2 Series Gran Coupe.

All 2 Series Coupes will come with BMW’s Live Cockpit Professional in Australia, which means a 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment display running iDrive System 7, 12.3-inch fully-digital dash, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are all standard.

A head-up digital display will also be available for the first time in the badge’s existence.

Other options include a glass slide/tilt sunroof, Harmon Kardon stereo, a heated steering wheel, and heated seats.

The new 2 Series Coupe will come with a host of standard safety features, including front-collision warning, speed limit info, lane departure warning and cruise control with brake function.

Optional safety equipment includes driving assistant with lane change warning, rear collision prevention and rear crossing traffic warning, active cruise control with stop and go functionality, park distance control, reversing assistant, reversing assist camera, surround view, and remote 3D view.

According to BMW Australia, both the 220i and M240i xDrive will land on Aussie shores before the end of 2021, or at the latest, in January of 2022.
