Future BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe Will Suffer Major Changes!
|   Monday, August 15, 2016
With its future 2-Series Gran Coupe, BMW intends to create a direct competitor against Mercedes CLA and rumors say that, besides the two extra doors, the new model may also have front-wheel drive.

Even if at first rumors indicated that the future BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe will remain rear-wheel drive, the latest post on a forum dedicated to the German manufacturer's cars has destroyed this myth.

In an event organized by the Germans from BMW, participants have been given the chance to test a prototype of the 2-Series Gran Coupe.
The German who posted on that forum, said that the car tested by him and by everyone else actually, had a front-wheel drive.

In addition, he said that the car in question was a bit longer than the BMW 2-Series standard, to make room for two extra doors, and that during that event you could also test a Mercedes Benz CLA and an Audi A3, which would be two direct competitors of Series Gran Coupe.

Given that the two models are also front-wheel drive, we tend to believe the rumors about 2 Series Gran Coupe are very plausible.
Moreover, in the coming years, the German manufacturer will develop more models with front-wheel drive. BMW said some time ago that they will produce 12 models based on UKL platform, currently used for new models of the Mini.

If the rumors indeed prove to be true, the BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe will join the other three current models with front-wheel drive: BMW 2-Series Active Tourer, BMW Gran Tourer and BMW X1.
