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.

  • Meh. It'll have multiple electronic systems filtering what would be a pure driving experience, it'll undoubtedly be very heavy and it'll probably look like the horrific 2 Series Grand Coupe. Ugh. Just get an E46 M3.

  • The underrated sweet spot in the 2 Series was the 230i MSport which could be had as a manual with a factory special order. Probably the most “in spirit” successor to the original M3 in the range really. I’m guessing that manual options will die with the new model.

  • they should offer that kind of design as one of their chassis colours

  • if the 240i has 370bhp then we can maybe expect even more like maybe even 500bhp, i also have a feeling there will be many companies wanting to tune it.
