BMW has just launched its most affordable sedan offering in the Indian market. It is the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe. While this car was touted to be the entry-level BMW in India, it sadly isn’t. With prices starting at Rs 39.90 lakh, the 2 Series is expensive than the Rs 35.90 lakh BMW X1.

There are two variants – 220d Sportline and 220d MSport. The latter model costs Rs 41.40 lakh, ex-showroom. BMW had an offer for early bird bookings and this included spa vouchers at Taj properties and more. So, what does this BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe bring to the table and will it appeal to you as a buyer?
