There are reports of a new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that likely will not arrive till 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we expect no major changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we expect the entire 2-Series lineup to stay unchanged visually, so we prepare for the same sharp looks as previously, particularly in the M240 model. That stated, one of the very best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is stylish enough for those who like that and shy enough for the daily purchaser. The lack of change will likely continue inside, where its styling takes a little a hit due to some more affordable plastics and other less-than-ideal products.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We likewise expect the list of basic features to stay the exact same when the 2019 2-Series strikes display rooms. If this shows to be the case, look for 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 location where we expect no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We anticipate 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 automatic and will have optional xDrive all-wheel drive.
Also 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 remain standard in the M240, it’s worth keeping in mind that a no-cost optional six-speed manual is likewise readily available.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a small coupe, security is excellent in the current BMW 2-Series, as it got a Top Safety Pick score from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” ranking 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 exact same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is nothing official yet, we anticipate to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in display rooms in late summertime of 2018. Without any 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 fees included). Competitors for the 2019 2-Series will include the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
