2015 BMW 2 SERIES COUPE: On display at the 107th edition of the Chicago Auto Show, Feb. 14-22, 2015, will be the successor to the successful BMW 1 Series sub-compact coupe. It’s the new ’15 BMW 2 Series, with even more eye-catching styling than before. The 2 Series Coupe continues BMW design elements, including the three-box body with clearly defined trunk and low-slung silhouette, a long hood, doors with frameless windows and a dynamically stretched roofline flowing smoothly into the tail. The numeral ‘2’ has denoted the presence of a sporting driving experience in BMW sub-compact two-door cars for 45 years – ever since the introduction of the BMW 2002. With this in mind, the 2 series is offered as a coupe in 228i and M235i series. A four-cylinder 2.0-liter gasoline engine with 240 horsepower is standard on the BMW 228i, with an inline six-cylinder engine developing 322 hp, in the M235i. Both models come standard with an eight-speed sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters, which uses ultra-fast gear changes to underline the dynamic character of the Coupes. The 2 Series is significantly larger than its predecessor in headroom in the front seats, rear-seat legroom, access space through to the rear is larger. The standard equipment list for the BMW 2 Series Coupe starts with the iDrive Controller and screen as well as Bluetooth hands-free and USB port. Standard equipment for the BMW 2 Series Coupe also includes Driving Experience Control – which allows the driver to adjust the suspension set-up as desired – and dual zone automatic climate control. Trunk capacity increases to 13.8 cu.ft.
