There is an artfulness to driving that can only be experienced by driving a vehicle manufactured to do the craft justice. As with a work of art, the size of a vehicle is not proportionate to its virtuosity; you need only behold the 2018 BMW 2 Series Coupe to understand this, but it becomes all the more clear when you take your seat behind the wheel.
Among other things, the 2018 BMW 2 Series Coupe is a work of visual art that be enjoyed with the eyes. Its sleek, dynamic coupe proportions speak to poise and fierceness, suggesting movement even while stationary thanks to bold body lines. This personality is brought together at the front, where LED headlights flank the unmistakable kidney grille and fog lights punctuate the aerodynamic lower fascia.
Because you share creatorship with the 2018 BMW 2 Series Coupe, you ultimately decide the finishing strokes of this work. If you want to emphasize the more luxurious aspects of BMW, the Luxury body style adds high-gloss chrome accents for added opulence. To amplify the 2 Series Coupe’s performance notes of the even further, the BMW 2 Series M Sport alters the front fascia, adds a rear spoiler and punctuates its look with Shadowline exterior trim.
To personalize your 2018 BMW 2 Series Coupe so that it is better catered to your personality, finish it off with an exterior hue that speaks to you and for you. Melbourne Red Metallic expresses excitement and boldness, fitting for the vehicle you drive. Seaside Blue Metallic suggest that you are cool, calm and collected; the frequent go-to at the office and the rock of your family. Jet Black or Alpine White speak to a subtle sense of refinement.
Like art from other mediums, the BMW 2 Series Coupe is as definable by the way it makes you feel as the way it looks. What the BMW 2 Series Coupe imparts is a feeling of freedom, delivered by one of two available engines. There is the powerful 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo four-cylinder engine, which is lightweight and responsive, delivering 248 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque for the BMW 230i Coupe.
At the top of the line, the 2018 BMW M240i Coupe is equipped with a 3.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder engine, which generates 335 horsepower and 369 lb.-ft. of maximum torque between 1,520 and 4,500 rpm; this power enables the BMW M240i xDrive Coupe to climb from 0 to 60 mph in as little as 4.2 seconds, making it a pièce de résistance for any performance enthusiast.
Advanced technologies make the performance of the 2018 BMW 2 Series Coupe all the more thrilling. Available Variable sport steering with Servotronic makes the 2 Series Coupe feel more nimble and responsive; an Adaptive M Suspension processes information about the road to make instantaneous damper adjustments, and electronically-controlled shock absorbers can be adjusted as desired to match your preferred experience; and xDrive, BMW’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System, provides power as needed to all four wheels to ensure superlative control and handling.
To call the 2018 BMW 2 Series a mere car is to do it an incredible disservice. It is built to appeal to those with refined palates, delivering an intangible quality of independence that no other vehicle in its class can match. The 2018 BMW 2 Series is indeed a car, but it is also a work of fine art.
