The revised BMW 2 Series Coupé and 2 Series Cabriolet models have been revealed ahead of UK sales starting this spring.

Among the subtle exterior design changes to BMW’s entry-level two-door models are a wider kidney grille, new LED headlights, revised tail-light lens graphics and redesigned alloy wheels ranging from 16 to 18in.

Inside, the Coupé and Cabriolet also get a lightly altered dashboard with redesigned instruments and an updated 8.8in touch-operated display supporting a revised operating system for the iDrive infotainment system. 

The subtlety of the facelift is reflected in the engine line-up, which remains the same as before; the petrol units range from a 134bhp in the base 218i to 335bhp in the top of the line M240i, while the diesels extend from 148bhp in the 218d to 221bhp in the 225d. 

Buyers can choose between a standard six-speed manual or an optional eight-speed automatic gearbox in most models. 

Alongside standard rear-wheel drive, the more powerful engines can also be allied to an optional xDrive four-wheel drive system.

Car review

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?

Back to top

At the top of the line-up is the facelifted M2. It benefits from the detailed design revisions brought to the exterior and interior of less powerful versions of the 2-series Coupe, while retaining the same 365bhp turbocharged 3.0-litre in-line six-cylinder petrol engine as before.

Prices for the various 2018-model-year 2 Series Coupé and 2-series Cabriolet models are yet to be made official, though BMW officials suggest they will remain close to the current prices, which start at £23,530 for the 218i SE Coupé and rise to £35,865 for the M240i.

The car series of this brand

The car series of this brand is going famous all over the world. At the same time, the assignment help uk review explains it is the most expensive one right now. But when you pay you to get that.

4wd - but for which engines?

Interesting. I'd like a high output 4wd petrol variant. I appreciate I'm likely in the minority, but other markets get the 3 and 4 series with big petrol engines.

Pricing

I assume the new range will share the current model's high pricing along with ~25% discounts via. popular car brokering websites?
