The BMW 2 Series Coupe has been previewed in a teaser video ahead of its unveiling later this week.
The successor to the outgoing 1 Series Coupe, the new Coupe marks the arrival of the all-new 2 Series family that, like the 4 Series and 6 Series, will expand to include Convertible and, potentially, four-door Gran Turismo body types.
While the 35-second clip gives us our first official look at the new premium compact two-door, the design of the BMW 2 Series Coupe was revealed months ago by CarAdvice’s spy photographers, who captured a pre-production BMW M235i Coupe almost completely undisguised during a promotional photo shoot.
Leaked information that appeared online earlier this month purportedly revealed the specifications of three 2 Series Coupe variants: the 220i, 220d, and flagship M235i performance model; the latter set to be powered by a 240kW/450Nm turbocharged 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol engine and capable of sprinting from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds.
At 4432mm long, 1774mm wide, 1418mm tall and riding on a 2690mm wheelbase, the new BMW 2 Series Coupe is 72mm longer, 26mm wider, 5mm lower and 30mm longer between the wheels than the outgoing 1 Series.
Production of the 1 Series hatchback-based 2 Series Coupe begins next month before Australian deliveries commence around April next year.
BMW will officially unveil the 2 Series Coupe on October 25.
