BMW has unveiled the carmaker's first ever 2 Series Gran Coupe in Philippines through a digital launch event. Priced at PhP 2,990,000 (around 45.30 lakh), the 2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe happens to be one of the smallest and most affordable 4-door vehicles.

The new 2 Series Gran Coupe has several changes, both in styling cues and technology, compared to its predecessors. The new 2 Series Gran Coupe is now a rear-wheel drive and is based on BMW's new UKL platform.

The 2 Series Gran Coupe is powered by a 1.5-litre TwinPower Turbo three-cylinder engine, mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch gearbox, that can produce 140 PS of power along with 220 Nm of torque. The 17-inch double-spoke alloy wheels now sits on a 2670mm wheelbase.

The design of the new 2 Series Gran Coupe borrows some styling cues from both the new 1 Series launched earlier and the recently launched 8 Series. The signature twin kidney front grille and a sporty-looking bumper dominates the front face of the vehicle along with LED headlights with DRL cluster. At the rear, the swept-back LED taillights and a sculpted bumper completes the key design highlights of the new 2 Series Gran Coupe.
