BMW 2-Series Coupe and Convertible Rumored with FWD

The BMW German based automaker is still unsure whether to use a front-wheel drive layout or not for the upcoming 2-Series Coupe and Convertible versions.

We are talking about some rumors coming from the already famous BMW insider Scott26/27, who has found out that the carmaker is somehow determined to put the 2-Series on a FWD platform.

To be a reminder, the BMW carmaker launched the first 2-Series lineup with a rear-wheel drive system, with the 2-Series Active Tourer car family to be the first model using the new UKL platform, meaning a front-wheel drive layout.

Decisively, the BMW automaker might be somehow inclined of moving forward with a future generation 2-Series lineup, both convertible and coupe, that would stay on the same FWD platform.

The BMW board will soon have to decide on this awkward situation, especially since other rumors also mentions the possibility of the 1-Series lineup to be standing on the carmaker`s new UKL platform in the near future as well.
