The specific proportions of the BMW 2-Series Coupe are contained within a body measuring 4,432 millimeters in length. The two-door model is therefore 108 millimeters longer than the BMW 1-Series and 72 millimeters longer than the outgoing BMW 1-Series Coupe. 

The new compact Coupe is also 32 millimeters wider than its predecessor (at 1,774 millimeters), and has a 30-millimetre longer wheelbase (2,690 millimeters) and wider tracks (front: 1,521 millimeters, +41 millimeters; rear: 1,556 millimeters, +43 millimeters). At the same time the vehicle height has been lowered by 5 millimeters to 1,418 millimeters. 

The result is an increase in interior space and 20 liters of extra boot capacity (now 390 liters). Added to which, the BMW 2-Series Coupe also boasts more efficient aerodynamics than both the BMW 1-Series and its predecessor, as reflected in a Cd of 0.29 for the BMW 220i Coupe.

The dominant themes of the BMW 2-Series Coupe's interior are the driver-focused design of the cockpit, contemporary functionality and high-quality materials. An Easy Entry function for the front seats facilitates access to the two rear seats, which offer 21 millimeters more legroom than the outgoing Coupe, while headroom for the driver and front passenger has grown by a similar extent. 

Functionality levels are raised another notch by features including large storage compartments in the doors. The structure of the surfaces for the instrument panel, center console and door trim is dominated by the "layering" effect created by various overlapping surfaces. The length of the doors is emphasized by the converging lines of the door trim elements.

If the BMW 2-Series Coupe is fitted with an optional navigation system or the BMW Professional radio, it will also feature the BMW iDrive operating system, which includes a freestanding onboard monitor in flatscreen design. 

The Control Display comes in 6.5 or 8.8-inch form, depending on the version specified, while the Controller on the center console has a touch-sensitive surface which allows the driver to input characters (if the Navigation system Professional is fitted).


One four-cylinder petrol engine and one four-cylinder diesel unit are available from launch, putting 135 kW/184 hp at the disposal of the BMW 220i Coupe and BMW 220d Coupe. Joining them center stage, with a six-cylinder in-line engine developing 240 kW/326 hp, is the BMW M235i Coupe. And following hot on the heels of that trio are two more four-cylinder diesel models in the form of the BMW 218d Coupe (105 kW/143 hp) and BMW 225d Coupe (160 kW/218 hp). 

All the engines can be combined with an eight-speed automatic gearbox (standard in the BMW 225d Coupe) for fuel consumption and emissions figures that are even lower than those achieved with the standard six-speed manual gearbox. All model variants come with extensive BMW Efficient Dynamics technology as standard and meet the stipulations of the EU6 exhaust standard.

BMW 220i Coupe

The engine powering the BMW 220i Coupe sources significantly higher output from its 2.0-litre displacement than the four-cylinder petrol units available for the BMW 1-Series range. The driver can rely on the services of 135 kW/184 hp between 5,000 and 6,250 rpm and peak torque of 270 Newton meters (199 lb-ft), which is on tap between 1,250 and 4,500 rpm. 

The engine makes for a compelling proposition thanks to a familiar BMW appetite for revs, an impressive level of efficiency and - courtesy of a modified piston construction - optimized acoustic properties. Its BMW TwinPower Turbo technology package comprises a twin-scroll turbocharging system, High Precision Direct Injection, VALVETRONIC fully variable valve timing and Double-Vanos variable camshaft control.

The BMW 220i Coupe sprints from 0 to 100 km/h / 62 mph in 7.0 seconds on the way to a top speed of 235 km/h / 146 mph (automatic: 230 km/h / 143 mph). The average fuel consumption of the BMW 220i Coupe stands at between 6.1 and 6.3 liters per 100 kilometers / 46.3 - 44.8 mpg imp (automatic: 5.7 - 6.0 litres / 49.6 - 47.1 mpg imp), while its CO2 emissions come in at between 142 and 148 grams per kilometer (134 - 139 g/km; figures are calculated according to the EU test cycle and may vary depending on the tyre format specified). As these figures confirm, the BMW 220i Coupe's 10 kW increase in output over its predecessor has been complemented by a drop in fuel consumption of up to 14 per cent.

BMW 220d Coupe

A turbocharger with variable inlet geometry and common rail direct injection, whose solenoid valve injectors employ maximum pressure of 1,800 bar, are the key features of the BMW TwinPower Turbo engine technology in the BMW 220d Coupe. 

This enables the 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine to match instantaneous pulling power with extremely efficient combustion. Maximum output of 135 kW/184 hp is available at 4,000 rpm and peak torque of 380 Newton meters (280 lb-ft) comes on stream between 1,750 and 2,750 rpm.

Fitted with the standard manual gearbox, the BMW 220d Coupe dashes from 0 to 100 km/h / 62 mph in 7.2 seconds (7.1 seconds with the optional automatic). Top speed stands at 230 km/h / 143 mph with either gearbox. The output of the BMW 220d Coupe is 5 kW higher than that of its predecessor, yet it records even lower fuel consumption and emissions. 

Average fuel economy stands at 4.5 - 4.8 liters per 100 kilometers / 62.8 - 58.9 mpg imp (automatic: 4.2 - 4.4 liters / 67.3 - 64.2 mpg imp), CO2 emissions are 119-125 grams per kilometer (111 - 117 g/km; figures are calculated according to the EU test cycle and may vary depending on the tire format specified). Cars fitted with the optional eight-speed automatic gearbox achieve the largest reduction in fuel consumption, of around 21 per cent.

Customers can order their BMW 220d Coupe from launch with a BMW M Performance Power Kit from the Original BMW Accessories range. This kit lifts engine output by 12 KW and increases peak torque by 20 Newton meters (15 lb-ft). Fuel consumption and emissions are unaffected by the resultant improvement in sprinting performance.

BMW 218d Coupe

Further additions to the engine line-up include another two 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel units with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. A turbocharger with variable geometry and common rail direct injection, whose solenoid valve injectors fire fuel into the combustion chambers at up to 1,600 bar, endow the engine in the BMW 218d Coupe with peak output of 105 kW/143 hp and maximum torque of 320 Newton meters (236 lb-ft). 

The entry-level diesel model needs 8.9 seconds (automatic: 8.6 seconds) to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h / 62 mph en route to a top speed of 213 km/h / 132 mph (213 km/h / 132 mph). The BMW 218d Coupe posts average fuel consumption of 4.3 - 4.5 liters (4.2 - 4.4 liters) per 100 kilometers / 64.9 - 62.8 (67.3 - 64.2) mpg imp and CO2 emissions of 114 - 119 grams per kilometer (111 - 117 g/km; all data are provisional, fuel consumption and emission figures are calculated according to the EU test cycle and may vary depending on the tyre format specified).

BMW 225d Coupe

Serving up output of 160 kW/218 hp and peak torque of 450 Newton meters (332 lb-ft), the engine in the BMW 225d Coupe is the most powerful diesel variant available for the new two-door model. Its two-stage turbocharging system consists of one large and one small turbocharger, also with variable geometry, whose precisely controlled interplay ensures instantaneous pulling power. 

The piezo injectors of its common rail direct injection system generate maximum pressure of 2,000 bar. The BMW 225d Coupe is fitted as standard with the eight-speed automatic gearbox and sprints from a standstill to 100 km/h / 62 mph in 6.3 seconds. Top speed is 242 km/h / 150 mph. 

With average fuel consumption of 4.7 liters per 100 kilometers / 60.1 mpg imp and CO2 emissions of 124 grams per kilometer, the sportiest diesel model in the line-up also achieves outstanding efficiency (all data are provisional, fuel consumption and emission figures are calculated according to the EU test cycle).
