There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that likely won’t arrive till 2020. For 2019, however, we anticipate no major changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we anticipate the whole 2-Series lineup to stay unchanged visually, so we expect the exact same sharp looks as previously, particularly in the M240 model. That said, among the best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is stylish enough for those who like that and shy enough for the daily buyer. The lack of change will likely continue within, where its styling takes a little a hit due to some more affordable plastics and other less-than-ideal products.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We likewise expect the list of standard features to stay the same when the 2019 2-Series strikes display rooms. If this proves to be the case, try to find it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automated environment control, a 6.5-inch display 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 stay a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. This engine will likely continue to couple with an eight-speed automatic and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive.
Also look for 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 automated transmission will most likely remain basic in the M240, it’s worth noting that a no-cost optional six-speed manual is likewise available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a small coupe, security is excellent in the present BMW 2-Series, as it received a Top Safety Pick ranking from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” score in the headlight test and its lack of a passenger-side small-overlap test. Without any changes on the horizon, we expect this to remain the exact same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is nothing official yet, we expect to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in display rooms in late summer season of 2018. With no changes coming, we anticipate pricing to remain similar to the existing model, which starts from $34,945 for the 230 and tops out at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (location charges consisted of). Competition for the 2019 2-Series will consist of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
