BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is set to launch on October 15 in India
BMW 2 Series made its first appearance at the LA Auto Show last year. This model went on sale later in some international markets. However, it is not until this year does this model arrive Indian shore. The 2 Series Gran Coupe is based from a front-wheel-drive platform which also underpins the BMW X1.
BMW 2 Series Coupe reflects BMW’s latest design philosophy. For the exterior, the 2 Series Coupe also strongly manifests the coupe-ish design through its sloping roof and sleek pillar-less door. However, the sloping roof for the rear end will limit the headroom for the rear passengers.
The upcoming 2 Series Coupe is 4,526 mm long, 1,800 mm wide and 1,420 mm high. Compared to the Mercedes-Benz A-class, the 2 Series is shorter but wider. The upcoming coupe features a short wheelbase of 2,670 mm against Mercedes-Benz A-class’ 2,729 mm wheelbase. Moreover, the coupe features a 430-litre boot space, which is quite decent for a car of its type.
