BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe is expected to be launched in the month of August to become the cheapest offering from the Bavarian car manufacturer,
BMW is selling the most beautiful form of automobiles under the Gran Coupe line of models. However, the only Gran Coupe that has ever made its way to India till date was the BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe, which was replaced with the 6-Series GT. Things are, however, about to change, as the manufacturer is planning to launch the new 2-Series Gran Coupe in the country by the end of August 2020. With its launch, it will also become the cheapest offering from the Bavarian carmaker in the Indian car market. It will be placed below the 3-Series, which happens to be the smallest offering from the carmaker in India currently.
BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe will be the cheapest and smallest offering from the BMW.
With the Gran Coupe suffix, the 2-Series is expected to bring in a large amount of enquires to BMW showrooms around the country. The Gran Coupe is a suffix that is used for four-door coupes that the manufacturer sells. Internationally, there’s 8-Series Gran Coupe on sale as well, but in India, the 2-Series is going to revive this name tag.
BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe will have a 140hp turbo-petrol and 190-hp turbo-diesel engine on offer.
The 2-Series Gran Coupe is designed with a fastback-like rear-end. The C-pillar rakes pretty evidently to give it a dynamic stance and a lot of oomph factor. Underpinned by the same UKL-front-wheel-drive platform of the X1, the 2-Series Gran Coupe is a small car. Its dimensions measure at 4526 mm for its length, 1800 mm for its width, and 1420 mm for its overall height making it a little smaller than the A-Class Limousine. The 2-Series will offer more space on the inside than its competitor with a boot space of 430-litres, which is lesser than what A-Class Limousine will offer.
Expected to be launched in August, the 2-Series Gran Coupe will compete with the upcoming Mercedes-Benz A-Class Limousine.
The 2-Series Gran Coupe is going to be priced cheaper than the outgoing 3-Series with a starting price of Rs. 30 Lakhs, while its top-end variant is expected to be priced northwards of Rs. 35 Lakh mark. Being cheaper than the 3-Series, it is not going to be a cut-price compromise from the luxury carmaker, as the car will come all the bells and whistles required.
Powering this 4-door coupe, a set of powerful yet frugal petrol and diesel engines are highly expected. Internationally, it gets 2 engine options, a 140hp 1.5L turbo-petrol and a 190hp 2.0L turb0-diesel, which are also expected to make their way to the India-spec car.
