Coupe could debut later this year

The 2014 BMW 2-Series Coupe and Convertible have been spied undergoing cold weather testing in Northern Europe.

Designed to replace the 1-Series Coupe and Convertible, the 2-Series variants have an evolutionary design which is heavily influenced by the 1-Series hatchback. Despite the similarities, the coupe and convertible could have a unique front fascia with slimmer headlights.

Engine options will likely carryover from the 1-Series, so expect a variety of four-cylinder petrol and diesel power plants. There could also be an M235i variant that features a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with 320 HP (235 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. Regardless of which engine is selected, it can be paired to a six-speed manual or an eight-speed automatic. Rear-wheel drive will be standard, but all-wheel drive should be optional.

The 2-Series Coupe is expected to go on sale later this year, while the Convertible will likely follow in early 2014.

With so many small BMWs coming out, one has to wonder why they bothered updating the trademarks to Triumph cars. There is no compelling reason to pursue a Triumph revival to go along with Mini when BMW is going downmarket under their own marque.

hahaha. It is funny how BMW is making so many new models just to be 'the best' in terms of sales.

Keep in mind that most of the "new" models are simply separating the coupe/cabrio and sedan/wagon versions of the same car. 1 coupe=2, 3 coupe=4. That said, the 3 GT sucks.

you're right but until the model separation clarifies, they all seem a blur of look alike models.

BMW competitor is mercedes which make more different models than BMW. And the is nothing wrong in giving people bigger choice which car they want to buy.

Well actualy Audi is what they should worry about. Audi sold more vehicles in 2012 than MB did, which puts them in 2nd place behind BMW. And in January they sold more cars than MB or BMW. MB is out of the game ;)
