German automaker BMW has just unveiled its first-ever 2 Series Gran Coupe, bringing its four-door coupe design to its more compact range.

The new series will make available two options for the US market: the 228i xDrive and the M235i xDrive. Both equipped with the same turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic gearbox, the former model pushes out 228 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque, while the latter M Sport model produces 301 horsepower and torque of 332 pound-feet. With that levels of power, the 228i xDrive can make 0-60 mph in 6.0 seconds, with the more aggressive M235i xDrive model clocking in at 4.7 seconds.

Both models for the US come standard with all-wheel drive, though the M235i will obviously come with more upgrades, such as additional bracing, a lower ride height via a standard sport suspension system, the option to choose between Comfort and Sport for its dynamic damper control system, and optional 19-inch performance tires (the standard M model comes at 18-inches, while the non-M version comes with 17-inch wheels).

With production being slated to commence next month, the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe models will be available some time in early 2020, though no pricing details have been released yet. To learn more, head over to BMW’s website now.

Elsewhere in the automotive world, you can now own Subaru’s limited-edition 341-horsepower WRX STI S209 for $64,000 USD.
