The launch line-up will be spearheaded by a high-performance model from BMW M GmbH: the BMW M240i xDrive Coupé with a 374 hp six-cylinder, in-line petrol engine and intelligent all-wheel drive. There will also be a choice of four-cylinder petrol and diesel models whose power is transmitted to the rear wheels.
The new M240i xDrive Coupé develops a maximum output of 25 kW, higher than in the outgoing model and it features a six-cylinder in-line power unit. The engines feature the latest BMW TwinPower Turbo technology.
The model’s exterior length has been increased by 105 millimetres, width by 64 millimetres and wheelbase by 51 millimetres compared to the predecessor model. While the height is lowered by 28 millimetres, tracks widened by 54 millimetres at front and 31 millimetres at the rear.
The M240i xDrive’s front-end design features individual headlights in BMW 02 style and a new-look BMW kidney grille. The grille is vertically arranged with active air flaps instead of bars. Alongside, pronounced wheel arch flaring giving the rear a muscular look. The Coupé has compact rear light units with rearranged LED light functions.
The 2 Series Coupe comes with an optional M Sport package Pro, which can be added on top of the M Sport specification. The package includes: 19-inch M light-alloy wheels, M Sport brakes, the eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, a front spoiler lip and an M rear spoiler.
Model-specific M Performance Parts will also be available for the new BMW 2 Series Coupé from launch.
The new 2 series model will be built at the BMW Group’s San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico.
BMW introduced the 2 Series in India in 2020 as its entry-level sedan in both petrol and diesel options. The M variant, however, didn’t make its way here. The 2 Series takes on the likes of Mercedes-Benz A-Class, Skoda Superb and Toyota Camry in the Indian market.
