The BMW 2 Series Gran coupe has been launched. The two-series Gran coupe is the first four-door coupe introduced by BMW in a compact segment, featuring sporty and glossy designs plus practicality. In particular, it is equipped with dynamic driving performance, a driving aid system and state-of-the-art connectivity technology to give high satisfaction to young people seeking stylish lifestyles. The new 220d Gran coupe with four-cylinder diesel engines will be the first to be introduced in Korea, with a total of two trims, Advantage and Luxury, depending on design and convenience specifications.
Appearance design with dynamic silhouettes and details
The BMW 2 Series Gran coupe has perfectly shifted the aesthetic beauty unique to the compact segment. With 4,525mm of battlefield, 1,800mm of overall width and 1,420mm of electric power, it boasts a low and wide ratio unique to the BMW coupe model, completing its dynamic appearance with bold and emotional lines applied throughout the vehicle.
The front part is equipped with a new Kiddney grille finished with aluminum satin and full LED headlights featuring four eyes, giving a strong impression. The glazed roof line and framing door on the side produce a dynamic silhouette, and the striking shoulder line conveys sporty charm. The new LED rear light on the rear and the character line in the black highlass that connects it make the car look wider and the chrome-processed exhaust pipe emphasizes the sporty characteristics of the 2 Series Gran coupe.
Sporty sense and convenience, wide interior space
The two-series Gran coupe offers a wide and pleasant interior space that is suitable not only for urban driving but also for long-distance driving. Compared to the previous 2 Series coupe, rear-seat knee space increased by 33 millimeters and seat height increased by 12 millimeters, making the entry and exit easier. In addition, panoramic glass roof is installed in all models to provide a good sense of openness. The trunk capacity is a basic 430 liters, up 40 liters from the existing two-door coupe model, and the rear seat back can be folded in a 40:20:40 ratio to allow for additional space.
The Illuminated Interior Trim Finisher is also applied to all models except the New 220d Advantage. The new interior trim creates a luxurious interior atmosphere through the embient light that emits subtle lighting, and allows users to choose one of six colors in total depending on the driver’s mood or mood.
The driver’s seat was completely centered on the driver. The engine start button and electronic parking brake were installed in the center console for easier operation. The BMW Live Cofit Professional continuously provides the information needed while driving through its 10.25-inch control display and high-resolution instrument panel, and the 9.2-inch full-color BMW head-up display, which offers optional specifications, projects driving-related information onto the windshield of the vehicle to help it focus on driving.
Innovative driving aid systems and state-of-the-art digital assist systems
The 2 Series Gran coupe has been equipped with various driver assistance systems that were only applied to top models such as cruise control and parking aid parking distance control systems to maximize convenience. Park assist not only helps with precise parallel or perpendicular parking with automatic parking aid, but also has a new reverse assist function. With limited space, such as a dead end, or a driver’s visibility difficult, a useful reverse assist system can automatically reverse up to 50 meters along the road that has been driven forward less than 36 km/h.
The new infotainment system provides a variety of driving information while also helping to easily operate vehicle functions. The navigation will be built into all models of the 2 Series Gran coupe, while the BMW Live Cofit Professional provides various vehicle information needed for driving via a 10.25-inch control display and high-resolution instrument panel.
BMW Connected Package Professional supports services such as remote control of vehicles with smartphone apps, oil/wireless Apple carplay and real-time traffic information services. In particular, the real-time traffic information service, which incorporates technologies from SK Telecom’s navigation service T-map, provides more accurate traffic information and optimized route guidance by receiving real-time traffic information from the T-map updated every three minutes through SIM cards mounted on the vehicle.
Leading Agility and Dynamic Performance from BMW
The 2 Series Gran coupe is equipped with an Actuator Wheel Sleep Limiter (ARB) that helps dynamic driving. ARB controls wheel slip quickly and sensitively in any driving situation, and understeer is controlled as much as possible through its link with Dynamic Stability Control.
In addition, ARB will assist the BMW performance control system to control the turning characteristics of the vehicle. When a vehicle enters a corner at high speed, the cornering centripetal force increases, making the vehicle more inclined to get out of the road, and to minimize this, appropriate braking is applied to the inside wheels to prevent accidents.
Efficient and Robust Modern Powertrain
The 2 Series Gran Coupe 220d is equipped with a BMW twin-power turbo four-cylinder diesel engine that produces a maximum power of 190 horsepower and maximum torque of 40.8 kilogram-meters. On top of that, 220d Advanced and Luxury models are equipped with the latest eight-speed step-tronic automatic transmission to enable agile and efficient driving. The acceleration time from standstill to 100 km/h is 7.5 seconds and the combined fuel economy is 13.9 km/l.
Meanwhile, the new 2 Series Gran coupe is priced at 44.9 million won for 220d Advantage and 47.6 million won for 220d luxury.
