2021 BMW 4 Series Coupé - Everything You Need to Know
This is it, ladies and gentlemen: the new 2021 BMW 4 Series Coupé, scheduled to make its market debut in October 2020. And here’s all the essential info about it because, let’s face it, there’s more to it than that gaping front grille we’ve seen in so many leaks prior to this official unveil.
The 2021 BMW X2 Goes Hybrid With 35 Miles of EV Range, But There Is a Trade-Off
Unveiled in 2017 as a slightly smaller and sportier alternative to the X1, the X2 was well received and sold more than 120,000 units in its first two years on the market. Come 2020, and BMW is introducing the first hybrid drivetrain for the subcompact SUV. The new trim is called the xDrive25e and combines the 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine in the base model with an electric motor. Launched in Europe for now, the hybrid should join the sDrive28i and the M35i models in the United States soon. Let’s see what it has to offer.
The 2021 BMW 6 Series Gran Turismo Is Still Ugly, But It’s Now a Mild Hybrid
Although the 6 Series is no longer in production, having been replaced by the 8 Series, BMW continues to offer the oddly shaped Gran Turismo (GT) model in Europe. The five-door hatchback was introduced in 2017, and it was just revamped for the 2020 model year. Featuring styling cues from the most recent 5 Series model, the 6 Series GT looks crisper and sportier. More importantly, it now packs mild hybrid drivetrains across the lineup.
Breaking: Watch the BMW Concept i4 Debut and See the Leaked Photos Here
The BMW i4 has been in the works for quite a while. One could even argue that the very first teaser was launched in the form of the I Vision Dynamics Concept at the 2017 Frankfurt Motor Show. We’ve even seen a number of spy shots surface of real-life prototypes being put through the paces. The truth is that the model isn’t coming to the market until sometime in 2021, but BMW wants to showcase exactly what we can expect with the Concept i4.
It was originally set to debut at the 2020 Geneva Motor Show but, since that has been canceled, we all get to enjoy the live debut right here in this official stream. So far, we know that the production version will deliver some 523 horsepwoer and up to 373 miles of range on a good day thanks to its 80 kWh battery pack – something that is said to way about 1,212 pounds. We’re expected a 60-mph sprint of around four seconds and a top speed in the area of 124 mph. BMW promises a charging time of 35 minutes for an 80-percent charge which should be sufficient enough as long as there are enough charging stations.
Along with the Concpet i4, we’ere expecting to see BMW show up the new BMW 330e and 330e xDrive wagons and the not-coming-to-the-U.S. M340d as a sedan and wagon. The live stream officially kicks of at 7:15 AM GMT or 2:15 AM EST for those of you burning the midnight oil just a little further down this page. Until then, check out the gallery of leaked photos below!
2020 BMW iX3
Like most automakers out there, BMW announced plans to add a large number of electrified models, but while some companies are already offering a handful of EVs and hybrids, BMW doesn’t have much to offer beyond the i3 electric hatchback and the i8 hybrid sports car. But that’s about to change soon, as BMW developed a new-generation eDrive platform that will underpin a number of vehicles in the future. The new drivetrain made its debut in the iX3 Concept, which previews a production model based on the familiar X3 crossover.
Showcased at the 2018 Beijing Motor Show, the iX3 is a mildly revised X3 on the outside. This is a sign that BMW wants its electric lineup to be familiar to company enthusiasts and it’s a hint that upcoming EVs will share design cues with the conventional Bimmers instead of getting their own unique styling, like the i3. Specs and performance details are slim as of this writing, but BMW promises an innovative drivetrain layout, an output of at least 270 horsepower, and mileage of at least 400 km (249 miles). A prototype of the production model was already spotted in the wild, so it may be unveiled early next year. Let’s find out more in the speculative review below.
Update 2/28/2020: The BMW iX3 prototype has been spotted doing some cold-weather testing with little camo. Does this mean that a debut is imminent.
2020 BMW X6 M
The 2020 BMW X6 M is the high-performance version of the third-generation coupe-style SUV. Just like the X5 M, it features a more aggressive exterior design with new options and a lot more technology inside the cabin. Thanks to new driver assist tech, the X6 M is a semi-autonomous vehicle in certain scenarios and it can park by itself. The really big news is the beefed-up engine, now capable of 600 horsepower. But BMW also offers a more powerful variant with the Competition badge that generates 617 horsepower. The new two-model lineup goes right after the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63 Coupe, also available in two flavors. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.
2020 BMW X5 M
The 2020 BMW X5 M is the range-topping version of the fourth-generation X5 SUV. Unveiled in 2019, it’s the most powerful and advanced version of the midsize hauler. Sportier than ever design-wise and fitted with BMW latest tech, including semi-autonomous drive, the 2020 X5 M hides a twin-turbo, 4.4-liter V-8 under the hood. Rated at 600 horsepower, it’s a bit more potent than the old engine. But BMW also offers a 617-horsepower model under the Competition badge. The two-model strategy enables the 2020 X5 M to better compete with the Mercedes-AMG GLE 63. Find out more about the high-performance SUV in the review below.
2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe
The 2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is a four-door coupe version of the second-generation 2 Series. Essentially a smaller alternative to the 4 Series Gran Coupe, the 2020 2 Series Gran Coupe is the very first four-door version of BMW’s smallest two-door coupe yet. It’s also the first four-door model this small that’s available globally, after the release of the China-only 1 Series Sedan in 2017. Although it runs on the same underpinnings as the 1 Series, the 2020 2 Series Gran Coupe sports a unique exterior design that combines a three-box layout with specific details front and rear. Its interior layout and the technology is, however, identical to the 1 Series. The 2020 2 Series Gran Coupe is aimed at the Mercedes-Benz CLA, but it also competes against the Audi A3 Sedan.
The 2020 BMW M2 CS Dethrones the M2 Competition In ALMOST Every Way
The 2020 BMW M2 CS is finally here, and it comes with BMW’s legendary S55, 3.0-liter inline-six, which now boasts 444 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. It’s also gleaming with carbon fiber outside and packed full of Alcantara with contrast stitching inside. It’s certainly lighter and faster than the M2 Competition, but by how much?
2020 BMW M2 CS Picture Gallery
While SUVs seem to be killing off sedans and coupes at an alarming rate, BMW is still launching amazing machines like the 2020 M2 CS that you see here. This is probably the last variation of the M2 that we’ll see before the next generation is ushered onto the market, but it’s also the most important one. Powered by BMW’s S55, 3.0-liter, twin-turbo, inline-six, the M2 CS is good for 444 horsepower and 406 pound-feet of torque. With the manual transmission, it can hit 60 mph in 4.0-seconds flat while the seven-speed dual-clutch transmission will quick-shift you to the same benchmark in 3.8 seconds. There is a ton of extra carbon fiber thrown about inside and out, while adaptive M suspension keeps things level, and the dual-branch exhaust emits a tone like you’ve never heard from and M2 before. We’ll have more news coming on the 2020 M2 CS soon, and we’ll be updating our M2 CS speculative review in due time, but for now, you can enjoy the amazing picture gallery we’ve added below!
2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe with M Performance Parts
The 2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe M Performance Parts is a factory-customized version of the newly unveiled four-door sedan. Just like any BMW model available, the 2020 2 Series Gran Coupe can be customized with a series of design elements crafted by the M division. While most of these parts are supposed to enhance the car’s looks inside and out, the package also includes some elements that improve performance. Let’s find out more about that in the review below.

BMW Just Dropped the M5’s 591-Horsepower V-8 Inside the 2020 X5 M and X6 M
We knew it was bound to happen, and you knew it too. BMW has finally spilled the beans on its range-topping performance SUVs - or SAV and SAC if we are to stay true to the BMW jargon. The 2020 X5 M and 2020 X6 M mark the third-generation of high-riding M-badged models by borrowing the M5’s 591-horsepower V-8 engine to go with a long list of goodies and upgrades, so let’s check them out.
2020 BMW X6
The 2020 BMW X6 is the third-generation version of the coupe-styled crossover. Unveiled less than a year after the fourth-generation, 2019 X5 broke cover, the 2020 X6 shares much of its design with the midsize SUV. Essentially identical to the 2019 X5 up front, the 2020 X6 stands out thanks to its coupe-style roof and hunchback rear section. As before, the 2020 X6 also shares underpinnings with its X5-badged sibling.
A competitor for the Mercedes-Benz GLE Coupe and the Porsche Cayenne Coupe, the 2020 X6 boasts a sportier design, BMW’s latest technology, and a range of upgraded or new engines. Both gasoline and diesel mills are available, but the oil burners won’t make it to the U.S. More about that, as well as all the new features available, in the review below.
