BMW is digging in to make a mark in the entry-level luxury sedan category with the launch of its 2 Series Gran Coupe in India and announced on Tuesday that it had opened its pre-launch bookings. An interested customer will have to pay 50,000 to reserve the car and will be entitled to a number of benefits if such bookings are made before the official launch date of October 15.

BMW, in a press release, announced that the 2 Series Gran Coupe is available for booking on its India website and customers who reserve the car before the official launch will also receive a Taj Experiences Gift Card worth 50,000. This can be redeemed for multiple transactions on stay, holiday packages, dining, spa, among others while customers can choose from Taj, SeleQtions and Vivanta Hotels and Ama Stays & Trails.

The benefit is a smart way to attract prospective customers in the festive period even if the 2 Series Gran Coupe seeks to make a compelling reason for itself.

The 2 Series Gran Coupe is based on the company's modular FAAR platform, and will be driven in with a two-litre four cylinder diesel engine which prdocudes 184 bhp of max power and has 400 Nm of peak torque. There is an eight-speed automatic transmission unit here as well. A two-litre petrol engine will reportedly come here at a later date.

The 2 Series Gran Coupe measures 4,526 mm in length, has a width of 1,800 mm and has a wheelbase of 2,670 mm. It has a boot space of 430 litres.
