New pictures of the BMW 2-series coupé have leaked online.

These new images show the production-ready 220d, in beige paint and reportedly riding on wheels belonging to BMW's Urban pack. Other options include Sport and Comfort packages.

The 220d coupé is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine producing 181bhp and 280lb ft. The car can cover the 0-62mph sprint in 7.1sec, rising to 7.2sec for the automatic version. Top speed is 143mph.

The 220d is one of the cleanest models in the 2-series rangereturning a claimed 63mpg on the combined cycle and emitting 119g/km of CO2. It has a kerb weight of 1375kg.

Other models set to launch as part of the initial 2-series line-up include the 220i coupé and the performance-based M235i coupé – pictures of which have already leaked online following a dealer presentation.

BMW 2 Series Coupé

The BMW 2 Series Coupé marks a successful return of the 1 Series Coupé. Overall it is a more compelling package than before but can it drive buyers away from the Audi TT and conventional hatchbacks?

Leaky BMWs. You'd think

Leaky BMWs.

You'd think they'd fix that.

Another dull German

It's much better looking than the 1-Series Coupe, but it's yet another staid, sobre looking German car. I really hope Jaguar launch a 1-Series rival in the future as they'll show the Germans how it's done, introducing style, flair and desirability in to the class, something the A3, Golf, 1-Series and A-Class fail to do constantly. And yet for some strange reason we buy them by the bucket load, and it can't be for the reasons of reliability either.

Having all the style, flair and desirability of a house brick, I wonder how many sleepless nights the X-type caused in Munich, Ingostadt, Wolfsburg and Stuttgart?

How many years did it take Jaguar to realise they were out of their depth?

Who do you think you are kidding etc

Nice unbiased headline there, from the Germans. Apparently this car is already a classic.

Makes Autocar's (alleged) over-enthusiasm for all things JLR seem rather tame.

Indeed. Autocar's favourable reports on Jaguar and Land Rovers are not down to bias, they're based on facts and the fact is every car they make are superb with every model they make either being class leading (often by miles) or close to the top. There's not one, even, average model they make. It's just a shame we don't support, or buy their, cars as much as we should do, instead plumping for the, often inferior and less stylish, German option more or less all the time.
