There are reports of a brand-new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that most likely won’t arrive until 2020. For 2019, however, we anticipate no major changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we expect the whole 2-Series lineup to stay the same visually, so we expect the same sharp appearances as before, especially in the M240 model. That stated, one of the 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 everyday buyer. The lack of change will likely continue inside, where its styling takes a little a hit due to some more affordable plastics and other less-than-ideal materials.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We likewise expect the list of basic features to remain the exact same when the 2019 2-Series hits showrooms. If this shows to be the case, look for it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automated environment 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 couple with an eight-speed automated and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive. Also search 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 automatic transmission will most likely stay standard in the M240, it’s worth noting that a no-cost optional six-speed handbook is likewise available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a small coupe, safety is top notch in the existing BMW 2-Series, as it received 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 very same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is nothing main yet, we expect to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in showrooms in late summer season of 2018. With no changes coming, we expect pricing to stay similar to the existing model, which starts from $34,945 for the 230 and peaks at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (location charges consisted of). Competitors for the 2019 2-Series will include the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
