For customers at the sporty end of the driving spectrum seeking an emotionally rich experience in a premium compact car, the BMW brand’s model line-up will be an obvious first port of call. A fresh, youthful and extrovert aura is complemented by thoroughly engineered and perfectly balanced driving attributes. With a vehicle concept geared squarely to offering agile and precisely controllable handling in highly dynamic situations, the new BMW 2-Series Coupé sets the sporting benchmark in its segment more emphatically than ever. The new BMW 2-Series Coupé wraps the driving pleasure for which the Bavarian carmaker is renowned in a particularly concentrated package. The new edition of the two-door model excites with dynamic performance that comfortably outstrips that of its predecessor and is vividly expressed by a further example of the new and extremely clear BMW design language at work. Inside the new BMW 2-Series Coupé, the sense of driving pleasure is fuelled by a modern sports car aura and significantly enhanced premium feel. The 2-Series Coupé underscores its leading position most strikingly with its classical rear-wheel drive, the offer – unmatched by any rival – of a six-cylinder in-line engine, and new equipment features that likewise help to give the car its standout sporting characteristics.
Driving pleasure in its modern guise arrived in the premium compact segment in 2004. As the only model in its class to offer rear-wheel drive, and featuring exceptionally sophisticated engine and chassis technology, the BMW 1-Series range became a byword for sporting prowess – a status further reinforced by the coupé variant that joined the range in 2007. An undeniably unique design, exclusive new additions to the engine lineup and bespoke chassis tuning imbued the first generation of the BMW 2-Series Coupé presented in 2014 with its distinctive character. And now the new edition of the compact two-door model goes a step further still. Its standalone vehicle concept puts clear water between it and the BMW 1-Series models (based on an advanced front-wheeldrive architecture) and borrows extensively from the technology used in the BMW 3-Series and BMW 4-Series. As a result, the new BMW 2-Series Coupé occupies a defiantly niche position in both the brand’s model portfolio and among its rivals.
Developed using the motor-racing expertise of BMW M GmbH, the engine features an aluminium crankcase with a closed-deck construction and a likewise alloy cylinder head. Internal engine efficiency is increased by weight-optimised pistons and con rods and a crankshaft made from forged steel. Power development and efficiency also benefit from the latest BMW M Twin Power Turbo technology. This comprises twin-scroll turbocharging with indirect charge air cooling integrated into the intake system, High Precision Injection petrol direct injection (which now works at maximum pressure of 350 bar), plus VALVETRONIC fully variable valve timing and Double-VANOS variable camshaft timing for the intake and exhaust sides. Power delivery of rare intensity marks out the engine in the new BMW M240i xDrive Coupé. The flagship model in the 2-Series Coupé range is equipped with the most powerful six-cylinder in-line petrol engine in the BMW engine portfolio. With maximum output of 275 kW/374 hp, the 3.0-litre unit develops 25 kW/34 hp more than the engine in its predecessor. Its peak torque of 500 Nm (369 lb-ft) is on tap across a broad rev range of 1,900 – 5,000 rpm.
An extremely effective cooling system ensures ideal operating temperatures are maintained – both in everyday use and when a supersporty driving style is employed. A split-cooling valve makes it possible to temporarily shut off crankcase cooling, thereby optimising warm-up behaviour. With its full power mobilised, the six-cylinder in-line engine accelerates the new BMW M240i xDrive Coupé from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.3 seconds. The standard M Sport exhaust system provides an authentic mouthpiece for the engine’s spirited power delivery with its emotionally stirring soundtrack. Combined fuel consumption for the BMW M model in the WLTP test cycle is 8.8 – 8.1 litres per 100 kilometres (32.1 – 34.9 mpg imp), with CO2 emissions coming in at 200 -185 grams per kilometre. The latest generation of BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and – in the BMW 220d Coupé – the use of 48V mild-hybrid technology provide instantaneous power delivery and minimise fuel consumption and emissions. Their advanced engine technology (which in the four-cylinder power unit powering the BMW 220i Coupé includes an exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head for the first time) and sophisticated exhaust treatment system enable all model variants to meet the Euro 6d emission standard. All of the engines available for the new BMW 2-Series Coupé team up with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission as standard.
An ongoing process of development sees the four-cylinder diesel engine in the new BMW 220d Coupé providing a clear upgrade over its predecessor in terms of power and efficiency. The 2.0-litre power unit develops maximum output of 140 kW/190 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft). It now features two-stage turbocharging and further developed common rail direct injection. Added to which, mild-hybrid technology supports or eases the burden on the diesel engine, as the situation demands. To this end, a 48V starter generator takes the role of an electric drive system, providing an extra 8 kW/11 hp of power. This electric boost enhances dynamic response when accelerating off the line and putting in mid-range bursts of speed. The new BMW 220d Coupé sprints from rest to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.9 seconds. The mild-hybrid system allows the electric power recuperated via Brake Energy Regeneration and stored in an additional battery to be used extremely intensively. This power is used for the auxiliary electric drive system and to enable the electric consumers on board the new BMW 220d Coupé to work particularly efficiently. The power unit’s combined fuel consumption and CO2 values in the WLTP test cycle are 5.1 – 4.7 litres per 100 kilometres (55.4 – 60.1 mpg imp) and 132 – 122 grams per kilometre.
As well as the latest version of BMW TwinPower Turbo technology with twin-scroll turbocharging and High Precision Injection (which sends fuel into the combustion chambers at up to 350 bar), the four-cylinder petrol engine of the new BMW 220i Coupé also has a cylinder head with integrated exhaust manifold. Making its debut in the 135 kW/184 hp unit, this design enables particularly effective exhaust gas cooling, which helps to minimise emissions. The four-cylinder petrol engine also has a split-cooling system for the crankcase. The 2.0-litre engine generates maximum torque of 300 Nm (221 lb-ft), enabling acceleration of 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.5 seconds. The new BMW 220i Coupé returns average fuel consumption figures of 6.8 – 6.3 litres per 100 kilometres (41.5 – 44.8 mpg imp) with CO2 emissions of 155 – 144 grams per kilometre in the WLTP cycle. In summer 2022 the new BMW 230i Coupé will be added to the range. This model variant will also be powered by a four-cylinder petrol engine with the exhaust manifold integrated into the cylinder head. This exceptionally powerful four-cylinder unit produces maximum output of 180 kW/245 hp and peak torque of 400 Nm (295 lb-ft).
