There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that likely won’t get here till 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we anticipate no major changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we expect the whole 2-Series lineup to remain unchanged visually, so we expect the exact same sharp appearances as before, specifically in the M240 model. That stated, among the very best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is stylish enough for those who like that and timid enough for the daily buyer. The lack of change will likely continue within, where its styling takes a little a hit due to some cheaper plastics and other less-than-ideal materials.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We likewise expect the list of standard features to remain the exact same when the 2019 2-Series hits display rooms. If this proves to be the case, search for it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automated environment control, a 6.5-inch screen, and a rearview camera.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another area where we anticipate no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We expect the base engine in the 230 to remain a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. This engine will likely continue to couple with an eight-speed automatic and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive.
Likewise try to find the M240’s 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine’s power to remain at 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. While the eight-speed automated transmission will most likely stay basic in the M240, it’s worth keeping in mind that a no-cost optional six-speed handbook is likewise readily available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a small coupe, safety is excellent in the existing BMW 2-Series, as it received a Top Safety Pick ranking from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” ranking in the headlight test and its absence of a passenger-side small-overlap test. Without any changes on the horizon, we anticipate this to remain the same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is absolutely nothing main yet, we expect to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in display rooms in late summer of 2018. With no changes coming, we anticipate pricing to remain similar to the current model, which begins with $34,945 for the 230 and tops out at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (destination charges consisted of). Competitors for the 2019 2-Series will consist of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
