Updated 2022 BMW 2 Series coupe spotted in tests

August 6, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

Journalists published photos from tests of a camouflaged prototype of the lordly coupe. The new 2021 model year, which will only get rear-wheel drive, will be shown next year.

At the disposal of our publication there are so-called “spy” photos from tests of the updated 2 Series coupe. It is known that despite the transition of the rest of the family (the 2 Series Active Tourer minivan and the large 2 Series Gran Coupe) to the front-wheel drive architecture, the two-door 2 Series coupe will be equipped with rear-wheel drive only.

We tend to believe that BMW was testing a more powerful version of the updated model.

Judging by the large wheels, the boot lid spoiler and the thick exhaust tips, there is a chance that we are dealing with some kind of M Performance model. Whether this car is called the M240i or not is unknown, but there’s a pretty good chance that under this camouflaged bonnet, which appears to have a slight bulge, is a powerful inline-six.

While we have seen spy shots of this car before, this is our first glimpse into the interior of the 2021 BMW 2 Series. It looks like the novelty will largely inherit the dashboard design from the 2 Series Gran Coupe and the 1 Series hatchback. It is important to understand that we have a prototype, so it is quite possible that in the production version of the model there may be some changes in relation to what we see here.

While the interior of the car will have much in common with BMW’s front-wheel drive cars, the new two-door 2 Series will be closely related to the 3 Series – both based on the CLAR platform. Of course, buyers will be offered the high-performance version of the M2, which is expected to receive the same S58 engine as the next M3 and M4, as well as the X3 M and X4 M crossovers already on sale.

The official presentation of the updated 2 Series should take place next year, and the debut of the “charged” M2 coupe will take place no earlier than 2022.

Not so long ago, our publication wrote that the updated BMW X3 2022 crossover was first seen on tests. Western journalists published photos from tests of the updated BMW X3 crossover. Despite the disguise, you can easily see some changes in the appearance of the new item.
