There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that likely will not show up until 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we anticipate no significant changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we anticipate the entire 2-Series lineup to stay unchanged visually, so we expect the very same sharp looks as previously, especially in the M240 model. That stated, among the best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is stylish enough for those who like that and shy enough for the everyday purchaser. The lack of change will likely continue within, where its styling takes a little bit of a hit due to some less expensive plastics and other less-than-ideal products.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We likewise anticipate the list of basic features to remain the exact same when the 2019 2-Series hits showrooms. If this proves to be the case, try to find it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automatic climate control, a 6.5-inch display, and a rearview video camera.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another location where we prepare for no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We anticipate the base engine in the 230 to remain a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horse power 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.
Also search for 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 probably remain standard in the M240, it’s worth keeping in mind that a no-cost optional six-speed handbook is likewise available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a little coupe, security is top notch in the existing BMW 2-Series, as it got a Top Safety Pick score 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. With no changes on the horizon, we expect this to remain the same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is absolutely nothing official yet, we anticipate to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in showrooms in late summertime of 2018. Without any changes coming, we anticipate pricing to stay similar to the current model, which starts from $34,945 for the 230 and peaks at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (destination fees consisted of). Competitors for the 2019 2-Series will consist of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
