2019 BMW 2-Series
There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that most likely won’t get here till 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we anticipate no significant changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we expect the entire 2-Series lineup to stay the same visually, so we anticipate the very same sharp appearances as in the past, particularly in the M240 model. That said, one of the very best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is stylish enough for those who like that and timid enough for the daily buyer. The lack of change will likely continue inside, where its styling takes a little a hit due to some less expensive plastics and other less-than-ideal products.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We also anticipate the list of standard features to stay the exact same when the 2019 2-Series hits showrooms. If this proves to be the case, search for it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automated climate control, a 6.5-inch screen, and a rearview camera.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another area where we expect 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 pair with an eight-speed automatic and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive.
Likewise look for the M240’s 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine’s power to stay at 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. While the eight-speed automated transmission will most likely remain standard in the M240, it’s worth noting that a no-cost optional six-speed manual is likewise readily available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a small coupe, safety is excellent in the existing BMW 2-Series, as it got a Top Safety Pick ranking from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” rating in the headlight test and its lack of a passenger-side small-overlap test. Without any changes on the horizon, we anticipate this to remain the exact same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is nothing main yet, we anticipate to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in showrooms in late summer of 2018. Without any changes coming, we expect pricing to remain much like the present model, which starts from $34,945 for the 230 and tops out at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (destination fees included). Competition for the 2019 2-Series will consist of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
