The 2022 BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe continues with navigation and fully digital instrumentation as standard. The four-door Gran Coupe body style debuted just last year, though its platform dates back to 2014.
The two-door 2022 2-Series Coupe will debut this fall in an all-new form. This entry will be updated to include the two-door once information becomes available. The Gran Coupe is scheduled to receive the same redesign for the 2023 model year.
Choosing Your BMW 2-SERIES
The BMW 2-Series is offered in two trim levels: 228i and M235i. The 228i starts at $36,695 including destination, and the M235i is priced at $46,495.
The 228i is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder, and the M235 gets a high-output version of the same engine. Both models have similar fuel efficiency, as well.
|Trim and Engine Type||Horsepower||Torque||Fuel Economy (Combined)|
|228i / 2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder||228 hp||258 lb-ft||27 mpg|
|M235i / 2.0L Turbo 4-Cylinder||301 hp||331 lb-ft||26 mpg|
All-wheel drive is optional ($2,000) on the 228i and standard on the M235i. Both models use an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Passenger and Cargo Capacity
The 2-Series is BMW's smallest car line, which becomes evident in the rear seat. The Gran Coupe can seat five, though four is really the limit. However, the trunk is surprisingly spacious at 15.1 cubic feet.
The 2-Series Gran Coupe offers a nice bundle of standard driver assistance features. Each model gets blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and front and rear parking sensors.
The $950 Driving Assistance Package adds adaptive cruise control and an automatic parking system. BMW's Surround View camera isn't offered for the 2-Series.
The sole infotainment system offers an 8.8-inch touchscreen, navigation, 10 speakers, four USB ports, satellite and HD radio, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. Gesture control for the touchscreen is available for $190.
The 228i starts out with simulated leather upholstery, 10-way power front seats with driver memory, illuminated interior trim, automatic wipers, heated power-folding side mirrors, and 17-inch wheels.
The Convenience Package ($1,470) adds a panoramic sunroof, proximity key access, and power lumbar controls for the front seats. These items are also available in the $3,770 Premium Package, along with heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, adaptive full LED headlights, a head-up display, a universal home remote, and ambient interior lighting. Remote start is a $350 standalone option.
Buyers with a sporting side have two choices. The M Sport Package ($3,950) offers a sport-tuned suspension, 18-inch wheels, and gloss black exterior trim. The M Sport with Dynamic Handling Package ($4,950) also furnishes adaptive suspension dampers, upgraded brakes, special transmission tuning, an aerodynamic body kit, and a sport steering wheel.
The M235i packs the 301-hp engine, AWD, and the M Sport equipment as standard. The Convenience Package is also included, and the front M Sport seat can be added for $750. Others options are shared with the 228i.
The 2022 BMW 2-Series in the 228i trim should satisfy the typical luxury car buyer in every way. For those who buy a BMW for its performance potential, only the M35i will do.
