The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé tests continue
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe as part of its final testing phase. And the pre-production models of new four-door coupe for the premium compact segment has engaged in a spot of self-promotion on its calibration drives around the Munich area. Adding an extra level of intrigue to the eye-catching multi-coloured camouflage of the test cars is a large QR code on the front doors directing curious eyes to www.bmw.com/2-series-gran-coupe.
Ahead of the 2 Series Gran Coupe’s world premiere at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November 2019, this homepage will keep visitors supplied with bulletins of new information on this extravagant and innovative vehicle concept.
This spin-off from the classical sedan format is underpinned by BMW’s cutting-edge front-wheel-drive architecture shared with the recently unveiled new BMW 1 Series. Like its premium-compact stablemate, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe employs groudbreaking chassis technology and innovative control systems to raise the bar in terms of dynamics and agility.
One feature of the new car’s technical armoury is the traction control ARB technology featured in the BMW i3s. ARB uses a slip controller positioned directly in the engine control unit rather than in the control unit for the Dynamic Stability Control system. This innovative traction control technology teams up with the likewise standard BMW Performance Control to deliver a direct and intense driving experience with both front-wheel drive and the BMW xDrive intelligent all-wheel drive of the BMW M235i xDrive.
The sporty range-topping model is fitted with the most powerful four-cylinder engine in the BMW Group line-up, producing 306 hp. It also comes as standard with the newly developed mechanical Torsen limited-slip differential, which gives the car an even sportier edge by creating a locking effect between the front wheels.
The worldwide market launch of the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe will get underway in spring 2020.
