The new 2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe is very disappointing. It's the worst thing about the ugly European hatchback and the 2-seater sports coupe, which are bundled in a sedan that looks somehow worse than a Ford Focus. It turns out that you can not hide ugly even with BMW M Performance parts.
The M Performance parts catalog for the new 2 Series Gran Coupe, which is not a coupe and barely deserves to share a title with the gorgeous 6 Series sedan, is mostly cosmetic, but there's an option that should really improve performance, according to Motor1 .
There is an optional sport brake system upgraded to larger "vented" perforated red surface discs Fits well with three new wheel options, including a matte black 18-inch Y-spoke design, also available as a complete winter wheelset, an 18-inch Cerium Gray wheel, also available as a winter gear set, and a 19-inch dual-spoke, two-color wheel.
Inside there is a new Alcantara steering wheel with optional carbon fabric sheathing for the shift paddles. Of course, there are other carbon fiber accents in the entire cabin, which are rounded off with special floor mats in the M colors.
And for cosmetic foreign waste, there are a lot of contrasting parts that are mostly carbon fiber, with the exception of the optional glossy black tailgate spoiler, from the BMW claims that it "effectively reduces the lift". This is a nice deception that is technically probably at an almost immeasurably small level.
There's also a sleek black grille, carbon fiber exterior mirrors and carbon-fiber-wrapped titanium tailpipes that are terrible.
None of these cosmetic enhancements can hide the fact that this car has the rear of a congested BMW crossover. For some reason a Lexus in a blind man, and I can not help but laugh at how horrible it is that the car was accepted by a fan base that has already written off this car when it was supposedly built for the first time.
But in the end the car is fine. I do not think it's as bad as everyone says, at least from scratch. BMW has been selling such cars in Europe and China for some time now, and it's damn hard these days to make a small car look good if you want it to be safe. Mazda still manages, but that's about it.
I think the only thing an M version of this car could save is when all are sold in a tailgate body which will never happen. Well, minis are also fun to drive.
