EXCLUSIVE: BMW’s Topless Two

2013-02-15 10:10

IT TAKES TWO TO TANGO: BMW’s 2 Series cabriolet (top) and coupe will make their global debut in 2014.

BERLIN, Germany - BMW will shuffle around its model line-up as it plans to add two numbers to its range – namely 2 and 4.

The 3 Series coupe and convertible will be sold as the 4 Series and the 1 Series coupe and convertible will become the 2 Series.

In 2012 our spies captured the new 4 Series undergoing testing. In 2013 they’ve managed to brave frigid conditions to bring us images of the 2 Series cabriolet and coupe.

XDRIVE SYSTEM FOR 2

The models will be based on the 1 Series from which it will borrow its technology and engine line-up. As for the design, BMW has promised to make its 2 Series a little sportier. The model will only receive four-cylinder engines for now.

The engine line-up will consist of a two-litre petrol tuned to 111kW, 131kW or 162kW. There’s also a two-litre turbocharged diesel capable of 160kW.

Engines will drive through either a six-speed manual or eight-speed auto. BMW’s xDrive system will be available as an option on the 2 Series.

The BMW 2 Series cabriolet and coupe is set to be unveiled in 2014.
