BMW 2 Series (2022) test drive Car News

Manufacturers’ claims that their car is groundbreaking or completely unique are usually pretty hyperbolic, but in this case, it’s probably true. A relatively compact 2+2 coupe has become a rarity, especially with rear-wheel drive. The Audi TT moves a bit forward and has never been as sporty as it looks. The Ford Mustang is a much larger and more expensive car and the Toyota GR86 is sold out in the UK for the remainder of its production run.

The new BMW 2 Series might be the class leader a priori, but there’s also no shortage of hot four-door coupes and hatchbacks you might get instead. The six-cylinder BMW M240i xDrive already impressed us with its grand touring character; this test drive reveals whether the 220i can retain some of the magic at a lower price.

The BMW 2 Series Coupé range at a glance

The 2 Series shares its mechanicals with the larger 4 Series. That means it gets all the same engines except for the six-cylinder diesels. A 154bhp 118i and rear-drive M240i have been announced for other markets but will not be offered in the UK. A BMW M2, with the twin-turbo six from the M3 and M4, has been confirmed, although exact details have yet to be released. All Series 2s come exclusively with an eight-speed automatic except for the M2, which will likely also have the option of a six-speed manual.
