New BMW 2-Series Coupe retains rear-wheel drive

July 5, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

The updated BMW 4-Series Coupe this month has reached the production stage, and now the company has taken up the next generation of the 2-Series coupe. It is expected to be presented next year.

The upgraded model seen in tests in Mexico is heavily disguised, but seems to have a wide grille, on the sides of which are curved headlights. While the grille is covered in camouflage, the wide bottom hole suggests that it will be circumvented by the ambiguous 4-Series design.

The rest of the car looks quite evolutionary, with the possible exception of hidden door handles similar to the upcoming i4. The body also looks a bit more streamlined, albeit with aggressive side skirts. Camouflage carefully conceals the rear, but allows you to consider the double exhaust, a small rear spoiler and taillights, but it is not clear whether they are serial.

BMW prefers not to disclose details of the upcoming coupe, but one thing is certain: it will not be front-wheel drive like the 2-Series Gran Coupe. Instead, the coupe will rely on rear-wheel drive CLAR architecture.

The BMW 2-Series Coupe engine line is still a mystery. The car can be equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which develops power of about 255 hp. It is also possible that BMW will offer a six-cylinder engine, and a revised version of the 3.0-liter engine with two turbines for the M2. According to rumors, its performance will be more than 420 hp.
