BMW Australia has announced details of its newest performance two-door model, the BMW 2 Series Coupé, which the company says is set to raise the bar in the premium compact segment in terms of dynamic ability, aesthetic appeal and emotional allure. The successor to the extremely popular 1 Series Coupé improves in all facets by delivering a higher level of thrilling dynamics, improved occupant comfort coupled with the latest in innovative technology.

According to Phil Horton, Managing Director for BMW Group Australia, the new 2 Series Coupé will get attention: “The 2 Series Coupé blends stunning good looks with the kind of incredible dynamic talent that can only be delivered by a rear wheel drive car. Add to this the generous specification loaded with the latest in innovative technology, and we are very confident that we have another winner!”

Initially there will be three model variants that make up the BMW 2 Series Coupé range, all equipped with the latest BMW TwinPower turbo engines boasting exhilarating power and torque figures. Priced from $50,500 the entry point BMW 220i Coupé develops 135 kW of power and 270 Nm of peak torque which is delivered as early as 1,250 rpm. This is enough to propel the BMW 220i Coupé from 0-100 km/h in 7.0 seconds whilst consuming a mere 6.0 l/100 km’s on the combined cycle.

The BMW 220d Coupé likewise produces 135 kW from its four-cylinder TwinPower turbo diesel engine boasting a substantial 380 Nm of torque. And while it consumes 4.4 l/100 km’s the BMW 220d Coupé sprints from standstill to 100 km/h in 7.1 seconds. The entry diesel variant is available from $52,500.

$79,900 will get a buyer into BMWs newest and most powerful petrol powered M Performance Automobile, the BMW M235i Coupé. Claiming an extra 5 kW of power over the BMW M135i it develops 240 kW and 450 Nm of torque enabling a 4.8 seconds sprint to 100 km/h.
