BMW 2-series facelift revealed

14th May 2017 12:00 pm

The 2-series Coupé and Cabriolet models receive subtle design changes; more powerful engines get optional xDrive four-wheel-drive system.


The updated BMW 2-series Coupé and 2-series Cabriolet models have been revealed with a fresh look.

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

Inside, the Coupé and Cabriolet also get a lightly altered dashboard with redesigned instruments and an updated 8.8-inch 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 136hp in the base 218i to 340hp in the top-of-the-line M240i, while the diesels extend from 150hp in the 218d to 224hp in the 225d.

Buyers can choose between a standard six-speed manual and an optional eight-speed automatic gearbox in most models. Alongside standard rear-wheel drive, the more powerful engines can also be paired to an optional xDrive four-wheel-drive system.
