BMW released the Compact Sedan Concept at the 2015 Guangzhou Auto Show, the concept leading the way to the future 1-Series and 2-Series models.
A recent report released by some unknown sources has indicated that the German based carmaker is planning the introduction of a long-wheelbase 2-Series Gran Coupe, which would emerge on the market somewhere in 2019. The model is also rumored to come with a rear-wheel drive layout.
The problem is that BMW has already announced its intention of introducing the all-new 2-Series Gran Coupe somewhere in 2021, the model thus joining the rest of the lineup and sitting next to the 2-Series Coupe and Convertible.
In case it would come up in 2019, the new BMW 1-Series Gran Coupe might feature rather the same characteristics found on the newly unveiled BMW Compact Sedan Concept.
This means that we might see an evolutionary body style, with aggressive front fascia with twin kidney grille, new LED headlights, flared wheel arches, aluminum window surrounds, soft-touch handles and so on.
Apart the new BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe, the German based carmaker is also working on a future X2 crossover as well as a top of the line SUV which will sit above the X5 and X6. We might be looking here at a future X7 flagship.
