Exterior of BMW 2 series Coupe
Compared to previous model, the grille on this one looks a bit smaller, although the corner on the front of the car seems a bit bigger. The aerodynamic of the front fascia is improved with angling the horizontal louver in the air dam upward.
The area around grille and headlight was covered, which indicates some changes, probably in the positioning of the headlights and their size in a way that would make it appear sleeker.
There are no changes made on the sides, but the rear face of the car passed through slight changing.The bodyline is a bit toned down, and the lower area looks smaller. A dual exhaust exit is the integral part of the rear of the car.
Since the dash was covered up, a little was seen of the car interior. This could mean some interesting changes in the inside.
Of course, the whole look won’t be changed completely, but new instrument cluster and updated infotainment system are expected.
