BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Spotted Testing In Germany For The Very First Time – Audi A3 and CLA Beware!
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Spotted Testing is clearly aiming to go against its rival such as Audi and Mercedes who are doing well around the world with these models
After the debut of the 6 Series Gran coupe and 4 Series Coupe, BMW is now moving towards testing the all new 2 series Gran Coupe. Compared to the larger 4 Series and 6 Series Gran Coupe models, the 2 Series Gran Coupe has shorter front and rear overhangs and the car now appears more upended. A prototype has been spotted testing on public roads and it looks like the 2 series Gran Coup is directly aiming at the Mercedes Benz CLA-Class for rivalry. The car was spied in Germany and is based on the new generation 2 series platform.
The 2 series Gran Coupe looks a bit more practical than the current generation 2 series Coupe and Covertible. The newer generation model will likely have a rear hatch. The prototype that was recently spotted appear to be an M Sport variant as the latest model was witnessed with blue brake calipers and a lower front fascia with larger air intakes upfront. The car is about the same length as the the current 2 series Gran Tourer hatchback.
The all new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is said to be a front wheel drive car, with an option for BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system. The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe has been heavily covered with camouflage and stick-on material which helps in hiding the details of the car in public. This 2 series model will sit between the global-market 1 series and the 3 series in size. The two clues we get about the Coupe’s overall styling and shape comes at the rear with dual exit exhaust and a small ducktail spoiler crawling out of the camouflaged trunk.
Thus far, it is not clear whether the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will be based on the same underpinnings as the outgoing Coupe and Convertible. The two clues spotted give us a clear hint of the Gran Coupe being quite sporty and snazzy. The 2 series Gran Coupe will apparently debut next year, and production of the 2 series derivative will likely begin tin early 2019 as a 2020 model year. The car is surely is India material and is most likely to make it as it can rival the Audi A3 and CLA class.
