BMW 2 series gran coupe india launch

The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is set to be the smallest Bimmer in the country. It could well also be the most affordable one as well. The name suggests that this is a 5-door version of the 2 Series. BMW has never had launched a 2 Series in India and this is the model debut. It is likely that the car will be produced at the Chennai plant and could have a very competitive base price. Speaking of which, there are no natural rivals at the moment and the car could compete with the Skoda Superb based on its price. We expect the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe to be priced starting from Rs 32 lakh. There will be petrol as well as diesel options with an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Well, all these details we would be updating in the blog below. Here we have the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe live updates. The launch is scheduled for 11am.

    Thoughts on pricing?

    We believe the 2 Series is priced a bit too close to the 3. This might put off prospective customers who might stretch their budget and opt for the 3.

    Parking aids in the BMW 2 Series GC

    The Gran Coupe gets parallel parking as well as reverse parking assist. The car remembers the last 50 metres it traversed and can retract the same path on its own.

    BMW 2 Series design

    There is an elegance to the 2 Series GC design. It has a smaller grille than what we are used to seeing in the other BMWs. The overall silhouette, especially in the communication blue colour is quite fetching.

    Wireless charging is part of the equipment

    Wireless charging is something that BMW used to give optional on many of their modern cars. The 2 Series though gets it as part of the standard affair with the M Sport version.

    Android Auto isn't there

    For some strange reason, BMW India believes that high-end customers might not use android-based phones. Hence only Apple CarPlay is the only connectivity mirroring option available with the 2 Series.

    What features can one expect?

    A lot. There will be LED headlights, 18-inch alloy wheels, 10.25-inch screens, powered front seats, dual-zone climate control, sunroof and more.

    No longer a rear-wheel drive

    Did you know that a majority of the BMW models are rear-wheel drive. This is one of the primary reasons why they are so much fun-to-drive. However, the 2 Series, in the interest of making the model a tad affordable has switched to front-wheel drive. How good is it is something we will tell you once the embargo guidelines are over. Watch this space for more.

    BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe positioning

    It is set to be the entry-level BMW in the country. However, by looking at the spec sheet, it doesn't look at all like an entry-model. There are going to be two trims - Sport Line and M Sport. Both are expected to be feature-packed. The car will be positioned below the 3 Series.

    Difference between coupe and Gran coupe

    Did you know that when BMW calls its cars Gran coupe, it means there are doors at the rear as well. If its a coupe, its supposed to be a 3-door model.
