Built on a built on a front-wheel-drive platform, the 2 Series Gran Coupe has a styling that’s typically new-age BMW with a large kidney grille and aggressive LED headlamps. This four-door sedan has a low-slung look with a good balance of aggressive contours and clean lines, and you get a very attractive looking car.
The front and rear bumpers on the car are also very aggressively styled. The dual-tone alloy wheels and dual exhausts further add to the sporty quotient. The side profile is also characterized by a beautifully sloping roofline that ends in fastback like rear section. The pillar-less doors look extremely attractive, and it must be mentioned that no other car in this price point has this feature. The well sculped boot lied with slim LED tail lamps round off the look at the rear.
BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Interiors
On the inside, the dashboard layout is pretty familiar with most modern BMWs and in fact, most of it has been carried over from the 3-series sedan. The ergonomics are spot on and BMW’s i-drive system controlled by a swivel wheel on the center console remains one of the best in the business. The center console also gets the typical BMW gear lever but other elements inside the cabin are quite familiar. This might be an entry-level BMW but quality of materials and fit and finish are still very high.
