Let’s compare the prices of the BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe with its closest competitors. What is more profitable to choose?

The basic version of the 228i xDrive is offered at a cost of $ 38,495. It is equipped with all-wheel drive and a 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder turbocharged engine under the hood with a capacity of 228 horsepower.

The car is available at a price of $ 46,495

The price of the car almost completely corresponds to the level of the main competitor of the Gran Coupe 2-series – the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, whose base cost is slightly less – $ 37,645, but this is for a model with a front-wheel drive system. The all-wheel drive version of the CLA 250 will cost $ 39,645. Mercedes has not yet published prices for its closest competitor M235i – AMG CLA 35. Mercedes has an even more powerful AMG CLA 45, issuing 375 horsepower. Its cost starts at $ 54,095

Also in the same segment with BMW is the Audi A3. The basic version is available from $ 34,295, which is slightly cheaper than the 2-Series, but with front-wheel drive and less power at 184 horsepower. The cost for the all-wheel drive version starts at $ 37,495. Audi all-wheel drive is also the closest competitor to the BMW 228i. The Audi S3 competes with the M235i, and starts at a lower price of $ 43,995, but its power is only 288 horsepower.
