There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that most likely will not arrive till 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we anticipate no significant changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we expect the whole 2-Series lineup to stay the same visually, so we prepare for the same sharp looks as previously, particularly in the M240 model. That said, one of the very best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is stylish enough for those who like that and timid enough for the everyday purchaser. The absence of change will likely continue within, where its styling takes a bit of a hit due to some more affordable plastics and other less-than-ideal products.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We also anticipate the list of basic features to stay the very same when the 2019 2-Series strikes showrooms. If this shows to be the case, search for it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automatic climate control, a 6.5-inch screen, and a rearview cam.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another location where we prepare for no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We anticipate the base engine in the 230 to remain a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. This engine will likely continue to couple with an eight-speed automated and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive.
Also look for the M240’s 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine’s power to remain at 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. While the eight-speed automatic transmission will probably remain basic in the M240, it’s worth noting that a no-cost optional six-speed manual is likewise readily available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a little coupe, safety is excellent in the existing BMW 2-Series, as it received a Top Safety Pick ranking from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” score in the headlight test and its absence of a passenger-side small-overlap test. Without any changes on the horizon, we expect this to stay the very same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is absolutely nothing main yet, we anticipate to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in showrooms in late summer of 2018. With no changes coming, we anticipate pricing to remain similar to the current model, which starts from $34,945 for the 230 and tops out at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (location costs included). Competition for the 2019 2-Series will consist of the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
