All-New BMW 2 Series Coupe Premieres At The 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed

The BMW 2 Series Coupe is a favorite among true BMW fans for its impeccable driving abilities

  • The official reveal takes place on July 8th.

  • The new Coupe will tackle the famed 1.16-mile hill course.

  • Unlike the Gran Coupé, the Coupe will continue to offer RWD performance.

It’s very fitting that BMW will take advantage of the global stage provided by the 2021 Goodwood Festival of Speed to introduce its all-new 2 Series Coupe. The Festival of Speed is dedicated to the automobile and the art of driving. And for many, the 2 Series is currently the most engaging BMW to drive.

As BMW puts it themselves, the next-generation “2 Series Coupé will continue the long tradition of BMW’s driver-oriented, compact and powerful two-door models and represents the most modern interpretation of the legendary BMW 2002.”

This will be true as the new 2 Series will once again be offered with RWD and an optional 6-cylinder engine. This is contrary to the current 2 Serie Gran Coupé which starts out life as a FWD vehicle with available xDrive AWD (which is standard in Canada).

Those lucky enough to be in attendance will also get to see the new M5 CS, along with the iX electric SUV, and the new i4 electric sedan, among other vehicles.
