German OEM BMW has revealed that its new 2 Series Gran Coupé will launch with a choice of three engines – one diesel and two gasoline.
A revised 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine will power the entry level BMW 218i. Tech advances mean that this unit has reduced CO2 emissions by 29g/km, and power has been boosted by 4ps to 142ps.
Now 5kg lighter, the 218i will generate peak torque of 220Nm, and features an over-boost function that briefly produces an extra 10Nm in fourth gear or higher. The BMW 218i will accelerate from zero to 100km/h in 8.7 seconds and reach a top speed of 215km/h. The unit will return between 5l/100km and 5.5l/100km (WLTP).
The twin-turbo 2-liter under the hood of the M235i will deliver a maximum output of 310ps. Peak torque is 450Nm, which enables a 4.9 second zero to 100km/h sprint. Top speed is limited to 250km/h. The M235i returns between 6.5l/100km and 6.3l/100km (WLTP).
The diesel offering comes in the form of a 2.0-liter four-cylinder. The 220d generates a maximum power output of 192ps with a peak torque of 400Nm. The sprint from zero to 100km/h takes 7.5 seconds on the way to a top speed of 234km/h. The BMW 220d will deliver between 4.4 and 4l/100km (WLTP) and emit 110g/km of CO2 (NEDC).
