There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that likely won’t 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 remain the same visually, so we anticipate the very same sharp appearances as before, specifically in the M240 model. That said, one of the very best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is sporty enough for those who like that and shy enough for the daily buyer. The absence of change will likely continue inside, where its styling takes a little bit of a hit due to some more affordable plastics and other less-than-ideal products.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We also expect the list of standard features to stay the exact same when the 2019 2-Series hits display rooms. If this proves to be the case, try to find it to come basic with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automatic environment control, a 6.5-inch display, and a rearview video camera.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another area where we anticipate no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We expect the base engine in the 230 to remain a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder with 248 horse power 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.
Likewise 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 stay standard in the M240, it’s worth keeping in mind that a no-cost optional six-speed handbook is also available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a small coupe, security is excellent in the present BMW 2-Series, as it got a Top Safety Pick rating from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” rating 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 same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is absolutely nothing main yet, we expect to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in display rooms in late summer of 2018. With no changes coming, we expect pricing to stay similar to the present model, which begins with $34,945 for the 230 and tops out at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (location charges consisted of). Competitors for the 2019 2-Series will include the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
