Can't see the logic there. Wait till this thing is your loaner car...
BMW finally has a competitor to the Golf R, CLA and A3/S3, BMW is going to sell a crap load of them to recent grads on short term leases.

I'd buy a G60 or a Stinger before I would buy any of these.

I see dozens of CLA and A3 every day. I have seen two Stinger, ever. There is a big market for the 2GC. Same reason we sell crap loads of X1.

There is nothing "gran coupe" about the design and would have saved the confusion of offering two different 2-series variants with different engines, drivetrain layouts and nomenclature.
Agreed ‼️

It will be in the 2er forums once they find time to add it in.

Not a joke. A co-worker is considering a 330i lease, but the lease payment is considerably more than she wants to pay. I suggested a 228 and showed her the photos of the car since the 228 is right in her price range. Her initial reaction was that the 228 looked a lot like a Toyota/Kia/Hyundai and, for 40k, she would rather buy a Toyota and save 15k. Since this lady is the prime target market for the 2GC (single, young and professional with decent disposable income) her statements do not bode well for BMW's goals of bringing newcomers into the brand with the 2GC.

Couple questions, why does a small sedan look like a crossover/x6, and why do all euro m sports have the micro "m" decals on driver/passenger side and not US?

on a positive note that transmission sounded like it is dialed in
with cheap leases , BMW will move a bunch of these as the German competitors like Audi and MB don't lease well

It certainly can. Is your point then that you agree with me? I'll assume so
