The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is a four-door version of a two-door coupe that promises sporty dynamics and premium luxury appointments within compact dimensions. The evolution of the 2 Series, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe make for a more practical choice for those seeking a smaller car with a huge sporty quotient. Positioned below the 3 Series, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is built on a front-wheel drive platform; while still making for engaging driving dynamics. The interior features quality appointments with up-to-date connectivity and vibrant displays. The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe offers features such as a panorama glass sunroof, Parking Assist with Reverse Assist, an illuminated interior trim, BMW Live Cockpit Professional, Gesture Control, wireless charging and even BMW Virtual Assistant among several others.

The powertrains on offer with the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe are quite a few. For now just the 20d turbo-diesel iteration makes it here: the 220d Gran Coupe. It features the familiar 2.0-litre four-cylinder, TwinPower Turbo engine with 190 hp and 400 Nm. The 220d Gran Coupe is available as standard with the 8-speed automatic in two variants: the Sport Line that is at Rs 39.30 lakh, and the M Sport priced at Rs 41.40 lakh (ex-showroom).

There will be a new, higher-performance petrol version of the 2 Series Gran Coupe as well: the M235i xDrive Gran Coupe. This is the most potent four-cylinder powertrain on offer, and sits below the straight-6 M2, the Competition model of which we drove earlier. It packs a 2.0-litre, four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo-petrol engine with 306 hp and 450 Nm. An 8-speed automatic delivers the power to the xDrive all-wheel-drive system. Weighing in at 1,570 kg, it promises a power-to-weight ratio of 194.9 hp/tonne.
