BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe was initially launched in India on October 2020 in diesel-powered variants only
BMW India has finally launched a petrol-powered version of its entry-level sedan 2 Series Gran Coupe in the country. Pegged at an introductory price of Rs 40.90 lakh, the 220i M Sport variant will be positioned above the base-spec diesel-powered trim 220d Sportline which is priced at Rs 40.40 lakh (all prices ex-showroom).
The petrol-powered 2 Series Gran Coupe will be available in a solitary trim and will be locally produced at BMW’s manufacturing facility in Chennai. It is available for sale from BMW dealerships with immediate effect. Apart from the petrol powertrain, there is no such change in its design or styling.
Powertrain & Transmission
The 220i M Sport is powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder turbo petrol engine which kicks out 190 bhp at 5,000rpm and a peak torque of 280 Nm at 1350-4600 rpm. This powertrain is paired with the same 8-speed Steptronic automatic gearbox as standard with paddle shifters behind the steering wheels.
The German carmaker says that the quick shift controls have been updated for a quicker and smoother manual gear shifting. The car is claimed to do a 0-100 kmph in just 7.1 seconds. It is offered with three driving modes- ECO PRO, Comfort and Sport.
To keep fuel consumption in check, the gearbox has been provided with a long seventh gear in order to keep the engine in low revs. The transmission also allows the car to coast in neutral in certain conditions whereas a specific low-viscosity oil further brings down CO2 emission levels. The brand is also offering a number of service plans according to duration and mileage ranging from 3 yrs / 40,000 kms to 10 yrs / 2,00,000 kms. These packages cover maintenance work and Condition Based Service (CBS).
Design-wise, it still features a signature BMW kidney grille giving it a classic look. Thr front end looks premium thanks to slightly angular full-LED headlights which form BMW’s four-eyed face. It features all-new LED taillights at rear which forms a typical BMW ‘L’ shape with a single slim light element.
2 Series Gran Coupe are offered in four exterior colour options including Black Sapphire, Storm Bay, Melbourne Red and Alpine White (non-metallic). M Sport variants are offered with two exclusive options namely Misano Blue and Snapper Rocks. Customers also get to choose from two interior upholstery colours- Sensatec Oyster Black and Sensatec Black.
Features on offer
Like most other offerings from the German marque, 2 Series Gran Coupe comes with a plethora of features onboard. This includes a modern cockpit concept which features a 12.3-inch digital instrument display, 10.25-inch touchscreen infotainment system, 3D Navigation, powered front seats, ambient lighting and a panoramic sunroof.
