New BMW 2 Series Coupe And 2 Series Convertible Announced

Earlier this year, we spotted a BMW 8 Series mule at the Nrburgring showing off its sloped roofline and high beltline.

The new 2 Series is likely to get a list prices similar to those of the current model, which start at around £25,000 and go up to £35,000. They feature sharper front-end styling, LED headlights fitted as standard, further interior upgrades and new connectivity services.

Five new wheel designs in both 17-inch and 18-inch sizes complement the two new exterior colors, one of which is called Sunset Orange and the other one Seaside Blue.

After turning its attention toupdating the 1 Series, BMW has seen fit to freshen up its 2 Series range for 2017 as well. In the range of versions appear not only two-door coupe, but kupeobrazny sedan and convertible.

BMW has announced minor updates and special editions for its 2018 3 Series sedan and Touring wagon, including the Edition Sport and Edition Luxury packs. The first all wheel drive variants of the 6 Series were the 650iX coupe and convertible.

The concept vehicle will preview the 8 Series Coupe and from the looks of it, it will be a head turner.

All three bodystyles -Coupe, Convertible and Gran Coupe- now come with new twin LED headlights that feature a different layout along with a redesigned front bumper which gets an unbroken central air intake with an aperture that increases in size towards the outer edges. Standard wheels are 19-inch M light-alloy double-spoke units, which can be painted Orbit Grey as an option.

Inside, you'll discover similarly modest revisions, with metallic looking surrounds to air vents, classy double stitching over the instrument panel and glossy black cover panel on the centre console. The Bavarian carmaker also dropped a teaser to a "design study" for the new BMW luxury coupe. The Luxury Line, now available with the Luxury package, adds Fineline Stream Wood or Fineline Pure Wood trims with Pearl Chrome highlights.
