2019 BMW 2-Series
There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, however that likely won’t show up till 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we anticipate no major changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we expect the entire 2-Series lineup to stay the same aesthetically, so we anticipate the very same sharp looks as in the past, specifically in the M240 model. That said, one of the very best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is sporty enough for those who like that and timid enough for the daily purchaser. The absence of change will likely continue within, where its styling takes a little a hit due to some more affordable plastics and other less-than-ideal materials.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We likewise anticipate the list of standard features to remain the same when the 2019 2-Series hits display rooms. If this proves to be the case, look for it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automatic climate control, a 6.5-inch screen, and a rearview camera.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another area where we expect no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We anticipate the base engine in the 230 to remain a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. This engine will likely continue to pair with an eight-speed automatic and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive.
Also look for the M240’s 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine’s power to stay at 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. While the eight-speed automated transmission will most likely remain basic in the M240, it’s worth keeping in mind that a no-cost optional six-speed manual is likewise readily available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a small coupe, security is top notch in the current BMW 2-Series, as it got a Top Safety Pick ranking from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” rating in the headlight test and its lack of a passenger-side small-overlap test. With no changes on the horizon, we anticipate this to remain the same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is absolutely nothing main yet, we anticipate to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in showrooms in late summertime of 2018. Without any changes coming, we expect pricing to stay similar to the present model, which begins with $34,945 for the 230 and peaks at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (location fees included). Competition for the 2019 2-Series will consist of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
