BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe
Predicted Cost: $39,000
BMWs 2020 2-Series Gran Coupe is going to be a major shift for the company in a few key aspects. First thing you should know about the new car is that it will be a front based sedan. This is a big deal because it’s the first time that BMW has ever sold a front-drive car of that kind in the United States. You can get the new 2 Series Gran Coupe in its 218i version, which includes a 138bhp 1.5-liter turbo three-cylinder motor, and a diesel-engined 220d xDrive with 187bhp. Another option is the premium M235i model that packs a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol motor developing that outputs 302 horsepower.
The two models, which are mostly different in their engines, will go for $38,000 for the 228i xDrive and $48,000 for the M235i xDrive. You should expect great performance from the basic 228i engine, but nobody buys a BMW to compromise anyway. In-terms of features, you should expect the same great new tech that is introduced in the various 2020 BMW models such as lane departure warning, adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning and mitigation, blind-spot monitoring, and pedestrian detection with automatic braking.’
