Press release

Munich. BMW consistently continues to pursue the brand’s current model offensive whilst developing an innovative vehicle concept for the premium compact segment. During the annual results press conference, BMW AG CEO Harald Krüger will announce the presentation of the first BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. With the sporty and elegant four-door coupe, the premium automobile manufacturer is adding to its range in the compact segment a particularly designoriented model for modern, urban target groups. The concept of a four-door coupe, already successful in higher vehicle classes, will in future combine a dynamic charisma and an expressive design with a high degree of everyday suitability also in the premium compact segment. The first BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will make its word debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019, with the worldwide market launch beginning in the spring of 2020.

The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe sets new accents in individuality, aesthetics and emotion in the premium compact segment. It combines an emotive design with sportiness and the latest innovations in operation and connectivity technology. Therefore, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe offers the ideal prerequisites to attract new target groups to hallmark BMW driving pleasure. BMW already offers a unique range of compact models for various different requirements and target groups that is unmatched within the competitive environment. The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will once again create fresh impulses in this class. It builds on the latest BMW front-wheel drive architecture and shares a multitude of technological developments with the new BMW 1 Series, which will also be presented during the course of 2019.

The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has been conceived as a global offering that constitutes an attractive enrichment, especially for markets in which car buyers show a strong affinity for notchbacks. As an exclusive alternative to the classic saloon, the four-door coupe addresses all target groups that prefer a sophisticated design and a self-assured look in the compact segment as well.

Looks good in my opinion. Is the car going to come in this light blue color (long beach blue maybe?? Isn't that also coming to the regular 2 coupe) or is it just the editing of the photo?

Sorry BMW ... you took far too long to come to market, and now that you have, it's a copycat that has no identity.

Small tail lights to compensate for huge front grills?

About time they fixed the ugly tailights! One of the main reasons I never considered a 2 series.

No kidding. I'd honestly go out and buy one as a DD if they had come to their senses and gone this route. Not a chance in hell now.

*edit* What the... my first post above was deleted? I guess we are not allowed to voice our opinion on new styling cues. Not like I used profanity or anything that was even borderline inappropriate. What gives, moderators?

*edit #2* I'm a idiot. My other post was in the duplicate thread in the 2-series sub-forum. Doh!*

I don't believe BMW offers Gran Coupe versions of the M4 so I wouldn't expect them to make a M2 Gran Coupe either.
