BMW has recently launched their two new coupés via an online conference. The BMW 2 Series Coupé and 4 Series Gran Coupé will be available for deliveries from Q4 2021 and Q1 2022 respectively.

The new models are geared mainly at enthusiasts, offering fun and dynamic driving experiences coupled with elegance and premium comfort, traits which the famed German marque is known for.

Compact, Powerful 2 Series Coupe

The new BMW 2 Series Coupé embodies sporting prowess in a particularly concentrated form, with a vehicle concept focused squarely on dynamic excellence and sophisticated chassis technology. It follows in the tyre tracks of the legendary BMW 02, which 55 years ago lit the fuse for the brand’s recent history of compact and irresistibly sporty two-door models.

As well as noticeable gains in dynamic ability, the new BMW 2 Series Coupé also offers a premium cabin ambience and cutting-edge innovations.

Three variants will be offered for the BMW 2 Series Coupé. The base 220i will be powered by a new 4-cylinder petrol engine producing 184 hp and 300 Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque, enabling it to sprint from 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds.

For customers wanting more performance, a 6-cylinder 3.0-litre engine now exists in the new BMW M240i xDrive Coupé. Churning out a healthy 374 hp and with 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque, the M240i accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in a blistering 4.3 seconds.

For the diesel variant, the new BMW 220d Coupé comes with a 4-cylinder engine coupled with two-stage turbocharging and 48V mild-hybrid technology. The 2.0-litre unit develops a maximum output of 190 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). It slots in-between the other two models with a 0 to 100 km/h time of 6.9 seconds.

All models will come with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard. An optional eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission boasts even sharper gearshifts and is standard in the BMW M240i xDrive Coupé.

The new BMW 2 Series Coupé enhances safety and comfort with a wide selection of driver assistance systems. Standard equipment includes front-collision warning, Speed Limit Info, Lane Departure Warning and Cruise Control with brake function.

Elegant and Dynamic 4 Series

The new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé is set to impress customers with its noticeably enhanced driving dynamics, a sharper design in line with BMW’s new design language, a refined premium feel for its interior and new cutting edge innovations.

The model will come in a variety of trim levels. The entry-level 420i Gran Coupé comes with a four-cylinder petrol engine producing 184 hp and 300Nm (221 lb-ft) of torque and can perform the century sprint in 7.9 seconds.

The range-topping M440i xDrive Gran Coupé is the powerhouse of the group, powered by a 374 hp six-cylinder in-line petrol engine with 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) of torque, and can sprint from 0-100km/h in just 4.7 seconds.

Alternatively, a 190 hp four-cylinder diesel engine with 400Nm (295 lb-ft) of torque can be found under the bonnet of both the BMW 420d Gran Coupé and BMW 420d xDrive Gran Coupé.

In the BMW M440i xDrive Gran Coupé and diesel variants of the new car, mild hybrid technology further increases dynamism and efficiency with a 48V starter-generator. This provides an extra 11 hp when accelerating or when a quick burst of speed is needed.

All models are paired with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard, with the M440i receiving an improved eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission.

The sporting characteristics of the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé are also well served by a low centre of gravity and almost 50:50 weight distribution. An active air flap control system comprising flaps at the top and bottom, plus air curtains and an almost completely sealed underbody help to optimise the car’s aerodynamics.

40 assistance functions designed to enable safe driving and parking will be available as standard or options for the new BMW 4 Series Gran Coupé. All models will come with front collision warning, Speed Limit Info, Lane Departure Warning, Park Distance Control, the Reversing Assist Camera and Parking Assistant with Reversing Assistant.

With global sales for the 4 Series Gran Coupé slated to begin in end 2021, followed by the BMW 2 Series Coupé in Q1 of 2022, prospective customers would not have to wait long before these new coupés become available on our shores.
