2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe pricing and specs

BMW has announced pricing for its first-ever 2 Series Gran Coupe, a style-focused four-door rival to the Mercedes-Benz CLA. The range will kick off with the 218i, priced from $47,990 before on-road costs. Power comes from a three-cylinder making 103kW and 220Nm, hooked up to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. That makes it a whopping $11,600 cheaper than the base Mercedes-Benz CLA, although the CLA 200 does offer 17kW and 30Nm more from its four-cylinder engine.

BMW i3 Urban Suite revealed

BMW has revealed the i3 Urban Suite ahead of its debut at the 2020 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. Although it shares its exterior and powertrain with the mould-breaking i3 electric vehicle, the Urban Suite subs its four-seat interior for a two-seat setup designed to evoke "the relaxed feel of a boutique hotel". The rear passenger sits in a large, business class seat with a footrest, a screen that flips down from the roof lining, and a 'personal sound zone'.
