BMW 2 Series

Based on current speculation that BMW's sedan and coupe version will NOT share the same Series number after 2013. We are expecting BMW to name their 2-door version of the 1 Series 4-door sedan, as the 2 Series. To backup the speculations, BMW has trademarked the name so we know a model is coming.

A face-lifted 2 Series is set to hit dealers in July of 2017

A few years back, someone at BMW thought it would be fun to place the magical name game. Instead of the 1 Series being sold as a coupe, convertible, three-door, or five-door, BMW decided to take the coupe and convertible models and call them the 2 Series. It was a little confusing at first, but a lot of good came out of it. The 2 Series coupe is larger than the model it replaced and came complete with a four-cylinder that was more powerful and offered better fuel efficiency compared to the V-6 in the old 1 Series coupe. And, of course, don’t forget that we were also blessed with the gorgeous BMW M2. Come the 2018 model year, and the entire 2 Series lineup is due for an update. BMW’s PR talk would leave you to believe that we’re talking about a new generational model, but truth be told, the changes are quite thin for 2018. Exterior changes are limited to new lighting units, while the interior gets a mildly revised dash and updated iDrive infotainment system. As far as motivation goes, you’ll have your choice of three-, four-, and six-cylinder mills (depending on market) that deliver between 136 and 340 horsepower.

Just to be clear, BMW says the 2018 2 Series is a new-gen model, but all evidence points to the contrary. Changes are minimal, and the 2 Series has really only been around since 2014, so it wouldn’t make sense for a new-gen model to be ushered in so quickly. With that said, let’s take a closer look at what the 2018 model will offer when it goes on sale in July of 2017.
