Meet The All-New BMW 2-Series
The entire BMW range has been on the receiving end of a dramatic transformation of late with new models sporting the German marques new design language and the latest model in the BMW portfolio to receive the new design treatment is the BMW 2 Series.
If there was anything to be said about the design direction of Germany’s three largest carmakers, BMW, Audi and Mercedes-Benz it would be that the design language of all three had started to converge and ultimately look very similar.
Maybe that was the result of intentional design or safety regulation, either way, each marques model portfolio was starting to become very Russian doll, essentially the same design applied to a larger or smaller model in the range, delete as applicable.
It is perhaps bold then that BMW has broken from the mould and rolled out a bold new styling direction. One of the first cars to receive this new design expression was the BMW X5 and it debuted to divided opinion.
The BMW dual kidney grille has become the defacto statement piece on any BMW and as part of the design overhaul, this element has been significantly enlarged and now features prominently across the BMW portfolio.
Whilst the X5 received a lukewarm reception, the revamped BMW 3-Series was received to critical acclaim.
With the all-new BMW 2-Series, BMW will be desperately hoping to recreate that initial 3-Series impact. A direct competitor to the likes of Audi’s A3 and Mercedes-Benz’s CLA the 2-Series is pitched up against some tough competition in what is a very competitive marketplace, so let’s take a look at its credentials.
Upon casting your eyes over the new ‘2’ it’s clear that everything here is new. Gone are those boxy front and rear ends and in are more clearly defined areas. Most prominent of which is the new BMW statement grille. This is sat above a more heavily profiled front apron and this style is reflected at the rear where brand new light clusters merge effortlessly into the rear quarter panels in an almost X6 esque fashion.
Inside, the new 2-Series sports the also new BMW interior. A lavish and comfortable place to be, the upgrades on the inside are just as far-reaching as the outside and everything inside is a considerable step up to what went before.
It’s clear that BMW have taken their time with this car and the resulting advances in design are a testament to this. With engines coming from the acclaimed 1-Series, the new 2-Series has set itself off on a strong footing to be a strong sales success.
