BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe: Lease deals now available
Having celebrated its world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019, lease deals are now available on the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe.
Completing BMW’s 2 Series line-up, two petrol versions, including range-topping M235i, plus a 2.0-litre diesel are available to order.
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe styling
Though it takes inspiration from other Gran Coupe’s in the BMW stable, the 2 Series Gran Coupe is a standalone model with exclusive exterior design details.
These include slightly angled headlights which draw attention to the familiar BMW kidney grille, a mesh grille for the flagship BMW M235i xDrive M Performance model, and a new rear-light design which extend towards the centre of the rear.
The 2 Series Gran Coupe is 4,526mm long and 1,800mm wide, but stands just 1,420mm tall. Despite its low-slung appearance, passengers are well catered for thanks to the 2,670mm wheelbase and the 430-litre boot.
The entry level Sport model will be fitted with 17-inch light-alloy wheels while the M-Sport and BMW M235i xDrive M Performance models will run on polished 18-inch light-alloy wheels. 19-inch rims will be available as an option for both the M Sport and M235i models.
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe interior
The Sport model features sport seats, upholstered in Nivala Cloth/Sensatec with orange or silver contrast stitching. The M Sport gets sports seats in Dakota leather, while the M235i adds the M Seats with integrated headrests upholstered in cloth Alcantara.
Thanks to the car’s front-wheel-drive architecture with transverse-mounted engines and a lower centre tunnel, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe offers generous levels of cabin space. Rear passengers get 33mm of extra knee room over the BMW 2 Series Coupe, while the seating position is 12mm higher with 14mm more headroom when the optional panoramic roof is specified.
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe infotainment
The BMW Live Cockpit Plus is standard on Sport models and features a Touch Controller, navigation system, two USB ports and a WiFi interface. The 8.8-inch control display features a touchscreen, whilst the instrument cluster has a 5.1-inch colour display.
The BMW Live Cockpit Professional is standard on M Sport and M235i models. This includes a fully digital, customisable 10.25 inch instrument display behind the steering wheel coupled with a 10.25-inch Central Information Display.
All models feature the iDrive Controller as standard, including a touchpad for character and numerical entry. Central information displays are also offered with touchscreen functionality.
Optional gesture control is also available and includes seven different gestures, two of which can be assigned to functions of the driver’s choosing.
In addition a number of voice control systems with online speech processing are included, enabling the driver to control a number of functions and features.
The new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe also offers an optional 9.2 inch Head-up Display.
