2 or 4 wheel drive
Thermal sports cars are disappearing as brands are heavily fined based on taxes (CAFE taxes, bonus / penalty system). Some manufacturers are very much in tune with their past in competitive release, with the Swan song being the ultimate sporty version before switching to all electric or hybrids. This is the caseAudi With recently RS3, Mercedes with theA45 AMG Or with the Force Cayman GT4RS
Today, the death knell of this era is the BMW Parish. The Bavarian company used the update of its coupe Series 2 To satisfy his fans, last. In fact, this version, which is considered to be the derivative coupe of the Series 1, must have logically followed a small technological path, relying on the new UKL operating system designed to accommodate cross-level and traction or all-wheel drive engines.
No, the engineers decided to play the game card fully by providing the impulse configuration to the small coupe. Technically, the new 2 Series Coupe is based on the CLAR operating system (3 Series and 4 Series), designed to receive engines in a longer position, including a 6-cylinder line and a transmission to the rear wheels, which is BMW’s hallmark.
Switching to this site creates a significant increase in coupe. It is now 4.54 meters long, which is 10.5 cm longer than the old model. The width was reduced to 6cm (at 1.84m) and the height to 1.39m.
BMW put the model codes, i.e. the notchback silhouette, but made use of them. The look is further enhanced by the headlights indicating the bumper, including a reasonably sized grille (fitted with active air flaps) and 3 large air intakes. Wide tracks and curves abound on the wheel arches and hood. Also, single post exterior mirrors come straight from the M line.
Our trial version of the M240i XDrive is a perfect example of this excitement with the 19-inch rims, M Performance Aerodynamic Pack, Dual Exhaust Pipes, and brakes M Sport in the M Performance finish for 59,900 (excluding fines). , Sports seats and this “Thundernight” purple 890 bill. During our test, which took place in the suburbs of Munich (BMW head office), residents there became accustomed to seeing many of the brand new products, with the 2 Series coupe systematically turning heads.
On board, we did not find the Series 1’s dashboard (derived from it) but the Series 4’s very low driving position, ambient sports seats and a three-spoke steering wheel with paddles and paddles. . This Series 2 sports sport but not extremism, leaving this functionality to the next M2. Here, the presentation is neat in the latest BMW Mainstream standard with a 12.3-inch central touch screen as in this M performance version. Air conditioning controls are related to central ventilators and have many physical touches compared to the competition.
Increasing the length is more beneficial for passengers than suitcases. The 2 Series is a truly antique coupe that you will need to ambush to get into, especially in the rear where only two seats are available. The foot, elbow and head space is minimal, but adequate for children or small adults, and glass surfaces are not subject to claustrophobia as they are small. The trunk does not move an Iota available at 390 liters. However, folding a 40/20/40 split bench seat can accommodate longer items.
