The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is now available in a new entry level 220i Sport petrol trim. Priced at Rs 37.90 lakh (ex-showroom), the 220i Sport costs about Rs 3 lakh less than the fully-loaded 220i M Sport but misses out on some of the equipment.
220i Sport misses out on digital instrument cluster, gesture control and more
Sits on smaller 17-inch alloy wheels
Costs about Rs 3 lakh less than the 220i M Sport and Rs 2.5 lakh less than the 220d Sportline
BMW 220i Sport: What’s different?
Starting with the exterior, the 220i Sport lacks the sportier design bits available on the 220i M Sport variant and sits on smaller 17-inch alloy wheels compared to the latter’s 18-inchers.
Inside, a notable absence is the 10.25-inch digital instrument cluster and touchscreen. Unlike the petrol 220i M Sport, the 220i Sport gets conventional analogue dials in place of a digital display and a smaller 8.8-inch touchscreen though it retains the voice assistant. The smaller touchscreen also misses out on the 3D maps function available with the navigation system on the 10.25-inch unit. An interesting point to note is that the entry-level diesel 220d Sportline does get the twin 10.25-inch displays. The 220i Sport also gets a unique trim insert on the dashboard and a different steering wheel from the M Sport variant.
The 220i Sport also misses out on bits such as LED foglamps, a wireless phone charger, 205W Hi-Fi audio system and gesture control available on the 220i M Sport though it does get kit such as a panoramic sunroof, dual-zone climate control, LED headlamps, ambient lighting, cruise control, paddle shifters, powered front seats, rear view camera, six airbags, ABS, ESC and traction control.
BMW 220i Sport: Engine and Gearbox
Like with the 220i M Sport that launched earlier this year, the 220i Sport is powered by a 190hp, 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine paired with a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic gearbox. BMW claims a 0-100kph sprint time of 7.1 seconds for the petrol four-door coupe.
