There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that likely will not show up until 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we expect no significant changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we anticipate the whole 2-Series lineup to stay unchanged visually, so we prepare for the very same sharp appearances as before, especially 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 timid enough for the everyday buyer. 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 materials.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We likewise anticipate the list of basic features to stay the exact same when the 2019 2-Series strikes showrooms. If this proves to be the case, try to find it to come standard with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automatic climate control, a 6.5-inch display screen, and a rearview video camera.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another area where we expect 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 pair with an eight-speed automated and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive.
Likewise search 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 most likely stay basic in the M240, it’s worth noting that a no-cost optional six-speed handbook is also readily available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a small coupe, safety is top notch in the existing BMW 2-Series, as it got a Top Safety Pick ranking 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. With no changes on the horizon, we anticipate this to remain the same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is absolutely nothing official yet, we anticipate to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in showrooms in late summer season of 2018. With no changes coming, we expect pricing to stay similar to the existing model, which begins with $34,945 for the 230 and tops out at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (location costs included). Competitors for the 2019 2-Series will include the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
