BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe derives power from a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine producing 190 hp; available in Sportline and M Sport trims
BMW India commenced reservations for the 2 Series Gran Coupe a few weeks ago and the highly anticipated model has entered the domestic markets today at a price tag of Rs. 39.30 lakh for the Sportline and Rs. 41.40 lakh for the M Sport trims (ex-showroom, pan India). It can be booked for an initial token amount of Rs. 50,000 across dealerships and also online.
The BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe has become the least expensive sedan from the luxury car manufacturer and is underpinned by the FAAR architecture in contrary to the CLAR platform used by 3-Series G20. The flexible platform is utilised across the BMW Group and it enables a front-wheel-drive configuration.
On the upside, the FWD architecture helps in a roomier cabin. The 2 Series Gran Coupe made its world debut late last year and its design has been influenced heavily by the 8-Series with the presence of sporty front kidney grille, sharp headlamp cluster and bold bumper section with horizontal fog lamps, sculpted boot lid and dual exhaust pipes.
