The front and rear ends of the 2022 BMW 2-Series Coupe were switched off a little over a year ago and we now get an undisguised look at the car’s profile.
Published by Decoches, the image reveals that the upcoming model will have a streamlined body and mounted door handles. We can also see a prominent line of the shoulders and a familiar greenhouse.

The latest image shows only the side of the car, but previous photos have revealed that the front end will have a wider grille, which fortunately avoids the appearance of the “4 teeth” of the 4-Series. The model will also have built-in headlights and corner air intakes with vertical air curtains on the outer edges.
At the rear there will be a highly stylized bumper with vertical reflectors and a prominent diffuser. We can also expect larger taillights and a trunk with an integrated spoiler.
Spy photographers have already taken interior photos and discovered a more modern booth with a digital instrument cluster, as well as a larger infotainment system. They will be joined by switchboards with higher quality, metal accents and more beautiful door panels.
BMW is pressed against the car, but will probably be equipped with a turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces approximately 255 hp. (190 kW / 259 hp). It should be joined by a turbo 3.0-liter in-line six-cylinder engine with about 382 hp. (285 kW / 387 hp). The company is also working on a new M2 and will likely have a detonated version of the twin-turbo straight-six that powers the M3 and M4.
