The new BMW 2 Series is a Great Spin-Off

2014 BMW 2-Series

As a spin-off from the 1-Series, BMW will add a new member to its family in 2014. The 2014 2-Series will be available as a coupe and convertible, and will most certainly be turning heads for all the right reasons. It will use the rear-wheel drive platform of the 1-Series and similar underpinnings of the 3-Series; you really can have the best of both worlds.

Although the 2-Series will be inspired by the design of its 1-Series sibling, it will offer a sportier overall look.


  • Powerful shape with short rear deck
  • L-shaped tail lights with LED light rods
  • Adaptive xenon headlights that can illuminate the most important part of the road for increased visibility and safety
  • Iconic BMW grille


BMW is typically very competitive with rivals, when it comes to design and material quality. This should hold true in the 2-Series.


  • Convertible should have sun-reflective leather
  • Technically a four-passenger vehicle, but rear seat is more practical for small children
  • Suggested to be optional wood or aluminum trims


The engine lineup in the 2-Series should consist of turbocharged gasoline and diesel engines.


  • Choice of a four-cylinder and inline-6, when opting for a gasoline option
  • M Performance model rumors to deliver 360 horsepower
  • Choice of six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmissions, but there may be a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic available
  • Should offer the responsive steering and sporty ride of the 1-Series


Don’t expect BMW to reveal all its secrets quite yet, but there are a few features that are being seen pretty standard across the line.


  • Navigation system should integrate seamlessly with Google™ Services to provide the latest information at all times
  • BMW ConnectedDrive lets you and your passengers surf the internet from your car as it acts as a mobile hotspot
  • BMW Assist gives you an intelligent navigation system, reliable information service and personal emergency switchboard
  • Possible Harman Kardon® sound system


BMW has thought of everything to keep you safe on the road.


  • Pop-up rollover hoops on convertibles
  • Park distance control
  • Self-leveling headlights
  • Emergency interior trunk release


If the 2-Series is not exciting enough for you on its own, there is also rumor that BMW may be planning a Gran Coupe to watch for, with a longer platform and sport-short overhangs in the front and rear.
