This summer is going to be extremely hot for BMW which has prepared an entire new fleet for launch, including the long-expected 1-Series, 3-Series and the recently previewed 2018 2-Series, coming both in the Coupe and Cabriolet.
The new philosophy that BMW has designed its models around is building bigger and more aerodynamics products, coming with the latest technology onboard and plenty of performance under the hood.
Scheduled to arrive in June, the all-new 2018 BMW 2-Series Coupe and Convertible follow the same line, both coming with updated design, the latest high-tech gadgetries and improved mechanics.
As we can see in the video presentation below, the all-new 2-Series is now coming with updated front-end with bi-LED headlights, wider kidney grille and more rounded air intakes, all increasing the aggressive look. Also, the rear end is highlighted by the single-piece rear lights with hallmark L-shape flowing into the flanks.
Also, the exterior colour palette includes Seaside Blue, Sunset Orange or Mediterranean Blue. You can find further details in the media gallery below.
The details inside are also more impressive, the cabin of the Coupe and Cabrio now coming with a more elegant yet sporty approach, highlighted by contrast stitching, high-gloss black surface for the center stack, leather seat upholstery, interior strips in aluminum or fine wood, high-gloss black panels with chrome accents and much more. The instrument panel is also tweaked with the latest onboard technology and “significantly enhances the cockpit’s quality feel.”
Under the hood, the 2018 BMW 2-Series is fitted with a wide range of three-, four- and six-cylinder engines, ranging from the 220i with 181 horsepower to the top of the line M2 Coupe with the same 375 horsepower and 500 Nm of torque.
