What is the 2 Series?
The BMW 2 Series is a complicated vehicle to sort out. For years, this pint-sized luxury car was only available as a rear- or all-wheel-drive coupe or convertible. Then, in 2020, the 2 Series Gran Coupe threw BMW's entry-level lineup into chaos. Rather than simply being a four-door version of the base car (don't get us started on BMW's insistence on calling its sedans "Gran Coupe"), the 2 Series Gran Coupe was a completely different vehicle based on front-wheel-drive architecture. It didn't bode well for the aging 2 Series two-door — would its successor switch to FWD as well, or would it simply disappear from the lineup?
