There are reports of a brand-new four-door 2-Series Gran Coupe coming, but that most likely will not get here until 2020. For 2019, nevertheless, we expect no major changes to the 2-Series lineup.
2019 BMW 2-Series Design
As a carryover, we anticipate the whole 2-Series lineup to stay the same visually, so we prepare for the same sharp looks as before, especially in the M240 model. That stated, among the best parts about the 2-Series is its Goldilocks styling, as it is sporty enough for those who like that and shy enough for the daily buyer. The absence of change will likely continue inside, where its styling takes a bit of a hit due to some cheaper plastics and other less-than-ideal materials.
2019 BMW 2-Series Features
We also anticipate the list of basic features to stay the same when the 2019 2-Series hits showrooms. If this proves to be the case, look for it to come standard with leatherette upholstery, 17-inch wheels, automatic environment control, a 6.5-inch screen, and a rearview cam.
2019 BMW 2-Series Engine
Under its hood is another location where we prepare for no changes when the 2019 2-Series debuts. We anticipate the base engine in the 230 to stay 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 automated transmission will probably remain standard in the M240, it’s worth keeping in mind that a no-cost optional six-speed manual is also offered.
2019 BMW 2-Series Safety
For such a little coupe, security is top notch in the current BMW 2-Series, as it received a Top Safety Pick score from the IIHS. The only tests keeping it from Top Safety Pick+ status is its “Acceptable” score in the headlight test and its lack of a passenger-side small-overlap test. Without any changes on the horizon, we anticipate this to stay the same.
2019 BMW 2-Series Pricing & Release Date
Though there is nothing main yet, we anticipate to see the 2019 BMW 2-Series in display rooms in late summer of 2018. Without any changes coming, we expect pricing to stay much like the current model, which begins with $34,945 for the 230 and peaks at $53,045 for the M240 xDrive (location costs consisted of). Competition for the 2019 2-Series will include the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, the Audi A3, and the Cadillac ATS.
