Introducing the 2-Series family

Our photographers were able to take a few pictures of the upcoming BMW 2-Series Coupe.

2013 is an important year for BMW as they will make some modifications in the naming system. The coupe and convertible versions of the 1-Series will get the 2-Series moniker. The same rule will be applied for the 3-Series which will spawn into a 4-Series Coupe and Convertible. These will probably be joined in the future by GranCoupe versions.

These are the first photos of the 2-Series Coupe which will be based on the 1-Series hatchback so it will borrow its engine lineup and most of the tech. BMW said it will be sportier than the current 1-Series Coupe, but under its hood it will get the same four-cylinder engines. The 2.0-liter gasoline unit will be offered with 150 hp (112 kW), 177 hp (132 kW) and 218 hp (163 kW), along with a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel producing 214 hp (160 kW).

These engines will be connected as standard to a 6-speed manual gearbox or an optional 8-speed automatic. BMW plans on offering its xDrive all-wheel drive system for the upcoming 2-Series lineup.

The 2-Series Coupe will be revealed in late 2013, followed by its Convertible counterpart sometime in 2014.

I like the shape of the frond of the car and headlights. M2 could be an interesting car, similar to 1M

One of BMW's most important models. BMW has just announced a deal with Boeing on carbon fibre tech so i would sleep soundly knowing these two giants are working on carbon fibre technology. The future is light.

The BMW 1-series and probably the 2-series (based on 1-series) will urgently need some efforts for weight reduction...difference to 3-series is moderate and the Audi A3 and Golf VII are much lighter!
