The 2022 BMW 2 Series Coupé focuses on driving dynamics


BMW wants the world to know that its 2022 2 Series Coupé is a driver's car. It said the 2 Series Coupé possesses "dynamic excellence, an athletic design, powerful engine options, and sophisticated chassis technology."

That dynamism comes from the car's balanced 50:50 weight distribution and a low center of gravity. 

Compared to the old car, the new 2 Series Coupé has a 55-millimeter-longer wheelbase, while the front and rear tracks have been increased by 54mm and 31mm, respectively. The ride height is lowered by 28mm. 

For better turn-in ability, BMW said the car's negative camber has been upped to 30 degrees on its front axle. 


At launch, the 2 Series Coupé will come in three flavors: 220i, 220d, which are both rear-wheel drive, and the all-wheel drive M240i xDrive

The 220i's two-liter turbo-gasoline four-cylinder nets 184hp and 300Nm of torque. The 220d's two-liter diesel features a mild-hybrid system, and 190hp and 400Nm. An eight-speed auto is paired to both the 220i and 220d. 

The same transmission is also used in the M240i xDrive, which also retains the three-liter straight-six engine that BMW is known for. The 2 Series Coupé xDrive's engine makes 374hp and 500Nm, which results in a zero-to-100kph time of 4.3 seconds. 

While the M240i xDrive is AWD, BMW said that the majority of the power is sent to the rear wheels

2022-bmw-2 seriesExterior-wise, the 2 Series Coupé's kidney grille has active air flaps to help it slip through the air better, while LED lights front and back are standard fitments. BMW also described the styling as a homage to its classic 02 models

Inside, the BMW Operating System 7 will be found in the 8.8-inch infotainment, while the instrument cluster with 5.1-inch color display is part of the standard BMW Live Cockpit.


Optional BMW Live Cockpit Professional comes with a fully digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster and 10.25-inch control display. BMW said it's an intuitive system, which allows for multimodal operation using the touchscreen display, BMW Controller, steering wheel buttons, or voice control.

The 2 Series Coupé will be built at the BMW Group’s San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico. Market launch will commence in 2022, BMW said.
