The spy photos show pre-production prototype “for the first time”, covered with a cover, but the pictures allow us to estimate the exterior and the front and rear of the body, as well as to draw conclusions about the modification of the test “two”.
Unlike the new BMW 4-Series, which will surely get a massive grille with a huge “nostrils”, the design of “two” is not so extravagant, and some features unusual for a modern BMW.
The “younger” coupe original optics, similar in pattern to other models, as well as the unusual triangular air intakes in the bumpers. Custom labels allow us to conclude that the spies got “heated” version M240i, but the location of the M logo on the front surprises: analogues of such a decision no.
The rear of the more traditional, but with a sporty diffuser combined single trapezoidal pipe exhaust system, while other compact models M-Performance mufflers removed in pairs and usually have a round shape. Tail lights configuration similar to the optics of the BMW 3-Series E90 in the back of the sample 2005.
Unlike the family of 2-Series Gran Coupe, developed on a front-drive platform FAAR, “deuce” coupe will retain the base rear-wheel drive architecture. It can be assumed that the range of engines will consist of modular engines of 1.5 and 2.0 liters, and the “charged” version M240i xDrive and M2 will retain the six-cylinder 3.0-liter turbo engine and 8-speed “automatic”.
More details about the “deuce” coupe will be available closer to the premiere, which will take place in late 2020 or 2021, the year. Insiders suggest that the new 2 series will not be the version in the back of a convertible.
