There are reports of a brand-new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that most likely will not show up till 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we expect no significant changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we expect the whole 2-Series lineup to stay unchanged visually, so we prepare for the very same sharp looks as previously, particularly in the M240 model. That said, among the very best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is sporty enough for those who like that and timid enough for the daily purchaser. The absence of change will likely continue within, where its styling takes a little bit of a hit due to some less expensive plastics and other less-than-ideal materials.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We also anticipate the list of standard features to remain the exact same when the 2019 2-Series strikes display rooms. If this shows to be the case, search for it to come standard with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automated climate control, a 6.5-inch display, and a rearview electronic camera.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another area where we prepare for no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We expect the base engine in the 230 to stay a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horsepower 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.
Also try to find the M240’s 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine’s power to remain at 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. While the eight-speed automatic transmission will most likely remain basic in the M240, it’s worth noting that a no-cost optional six-speed handbook is likewise readily available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a little coupe, safety is top notch in the current 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” ranking in the headlight test and its absence of a passenger-side small-overlap test. Without any changes on the horizon, we expect this to stay the very 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. With no changes coming, we anticipate pricing to remain just like the present model, which begins with $34,945 for the 230 and peaks at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (destination costs included). Competition for the 2019 2-Series will consist of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
