The new 2 Series Coupe will be on the roads this summer and even boasts four-wheel drive and a straight-six engine via the M240i.

We’re excited about the 2 series here at Regit. The previous guise was enough for most motorists. Compact, sporty, driveable. It was a little light on space, as can be expected from a coupe, but it put a smile on your face every time you got behind the wheel.

And as the specs are revealed for the second edit of BMW’s 2 Series Coupe, it looks like this will go at least one step further. 

The M240i model will be pushed along by the same turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine found in the BMW M440i, you can see what we thought of that here. It will have an identical 369bhp and will no doubt feel more racey given its lighter weight. 

On the weight, BMW has stuck to its tradition and split distribution evenly 50:50 and there will of course be rear-wheel drive on all models but the M240i.

The press release which is packed full of all of these details seemed to go out of its way to focus on driveability, too. 

From stating the new coupe would have “effortlessly controllable handling” to “easily controllable drift manoeuvres” – if that’s your thing – it’s clear that BMW think this 2 Series edit will really be great fun to drive, and we don’t doubt that for a second. 

In terms of how it will look, as you can see in the pictures, those details are deliberately more hazy. BMW has plumped for a more square grille on a whole host of recent models. The camouflage cover shown on the model in this article would suggest that won’t be the case here – but come June / July when further details are released, it still wouldn’t surprise us to see something more akin to what’s now found across the 4 Series range.

We can tell that the new 2 Series has a longer bonnet than its predecessor and a lower roof which only furthers the belief that BMW are really hammering home the sports message here. 

When the new 2 Series Coupe goes on sale later this year, prices should start from around £30,000. We’ll let you know what we think when we’re able to get in one.
