The future BMW 2 Series will have up to 374 PS and rear-wheel drive
The coupe will enter production this summer
Introduced in 2014, the BMW 2 Series is now seven years old and its replacement is becoming increasingly desired. The good news is that the next model is in the final stages of development and will make its debut this summer. For this final stretch, the German brand has provided additional technical details.
In keeping with BMW tradition, the future model will continue to focus on driving pleasure by retaining the rear-wheel drive architecture coupled with four and six cylinder engines. Chassis rigidity will be improved while weight distribution will be optimized with a perfect 50:50 ratio.
The steering will be recalibrated to offer more precision both in the city and on fast corners. The axles will also undergo significant changes. For the launch, the M240i will be equipped with a 3.0-litre inline-six developing 374 PS. It will be combined with an eight-speed automatic transmission and xDrive all-wheel drive.
