2022 BMW 2 Series Keeps Classic Proportions, Rear Wheel Drive For P 3.690M (w/ Specs)

To set a new benchmark for driving pleasure in the country, the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé has been introduced by the official importer and distributor of BMW in the Philippines, SMC Asia Car Distributors Corp.

Basically a GR Supra underneath in that they share the same BMW CLAR architecture, the 2 Series Coupé actually undercuts its Japanese “sibling” in terms of pricing.

The exterior dimensions of the new compact sport coupe provide the ideal starting point for excellent driving dynamics. Powerful proportions set within the classical three-box design of hood, passenger compartment, and trunk embody the dynamic potential of the all-new 2 Series Coupé. Athletically sculpted surfaces and dynamic lines following the brand’s new design language represent an expression of pure driving pleasure.

Instead of the “kidney lung” grille prevalent in modern BMWs, the 2 Series Coupé retains the more traditional grille albeit with vertically arranged air flaps in place of the classical grille bars. Other than that, the individual circular headlights are supposed to recall the legendary BMW 02 models. At the back, the predominantly horizontal surfaces and darkened taillights lend it a sense of athleticism.

For the Philippine market, it comes standard with the M Sport package adding the M Aerodynamic Package and comes with the M High Gloss Shadow Line, M Sport Suspension, and an M Rear Spoiler.

Underneath, the 2 Series Coupé features an almost perfect 50/50 front-to-back weight distribution. It’s also 12 percent more rigid than the outgoing model and this should give it enhanced ride and long-distance touring capabilities.

The driver-focused cockpit design and modern control panel on the center console accentuate the sporting aura inside the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé. The standard fitment of Sport Seats and an M leather steering wheel highlighted by the gear shift paddles brought about by the standard 8-speed Steptronic Sport Transmission, also feeds into the engaging nature of the driving experience.

A combination of Alcantara – Sensatec upholstery enhances the M Sport Package experience together with the M headliner in Anthracite.

The all-new BMW 220i M Sport is equipped with a 10.25-inch Widescreen display with BMW iDrive in Operating System 7.0 to experience the best-in-class intuitive infotainment system. It comes with Smartphone Integration—Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as connectivity options to let passengers seamlessly integrate and enjoy their entertainment preferences in the vehicle. For an added enhanced audio experience, the 2 Series Coupe is also equipped with the 10-speaker BMW HiFi Loudspeaker System.

Under the hood, a BMW TwinPower Turbo 2.0-liter inline-4 gasoline engine with a peak torque of 300 Nm and a maximum output of 184 horsepower enough for a 7.5-second 0 to 100 km/h time. The BMW 220i Coupé M Sport retails for P 3,690,000 and comes with a 5-year warranty.
