BMW has expanded its sedan line-up with the new 2 Series Gran Coupé – its first-ever small four-door coupé.
The new Mercedes-Benz CLA rival expands the 2 Series international line-up alongside the existing coupé, convertible and active tourer – although it is built on a different platform from these models.
The range-topping M235i xDrive gains all-wheel drive along with a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder, twin-turbocharged petrol engine which produces 306hp and 450Nm of torque.
The 2 Series Gran Coupé has the same mechanical underpinnings as the 1 Series, with the M235i featuring a Torsen limited-slip differential as well as BMW’s ARB traction control system, M Sport brakes and extra bracing for stiffness.
The 2 Series Gran Coupé gets its own version of BMW’s signature kidney grille, which is wider than the one on the 1 Series and designed to reflect those used on other Gran Coupé models.
Inside, BMW claims the 2 Series Gran Coupé offers an extra 33mm of knee room compared with the 2 Series Coupé, along with increased headroom.
The India-spec 2 Series Gran Coupé is expected to sport a 2.0-litre diesel engine, in either the 218d or 220d form – which produce 140hp and 190 hp respectively.
