Engines, M Sport suspension as standard. 
A 3.0-litre straight six-cylinder engine sits at the top of the 2-Series Coupe range, 
coming with intelligent all-wheel drive, the 374 hp engine more than capable of

BMW 2 Series Coupé is available with a choice of two four-cylinder petrol engines. 
The 220i Coupé and the 230i Coupé with a maximum output of 245 hp, should meet 
the demands of ordinary mortals.

is now also visualised by the corresponding graphics on the Information Display.

selectable display on a large portion of the screen. On the driver's side, widgets are 
displayed at the same level in a vertical bar and can be selected directly using the 
QuickSelect shortcut without having to switch to a submenu. The new, flat menu 
structure makes it much easier to navigate between the various functions and helps 
the driver of the new BMW 2 Series Coupé to concentrate on the road ahead.
