56k Icon My car of the day, new BMW 2 series Grand Coupe.

BMW's highly anticipated 2 series Grand Coupe has been revealed which will do battle with the Mercedes CLA and it does show a distinct visual difference to the larger 3 series and new 1 series. Looking at the rear end of the car, the shape appears to be inspired by the firms latest 1 series and X4 with similar taillights and tail-gate shape. No images are available of the interior but it will have an all new layout that will also be adopted by the next 2 series Coupe and convertible which are due in late 2020. A plug-in hybrid is also on the cards and is expected to use BMW's turbocharged 1.5 litre three cylinder petrol engine and an electric motor mounted within the forward section of an eight speed gearbox. The lithium battery will provide up to 31 miles in electric only driving.


Like it?

Not sure I like the look of that. Looks to me like a squashed 3 series with the rear end of the new 5 series. Don't think the choice of colour helps that either though.

I imagine if the engine choices are decent that it may actually sell quite well.
