Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive – the official importer for BMW Group vehicles in Kuwait – has further diversified its range in the premium compact segment with the introduction of the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé.
Offering a combination of unbeatable driving dynamics and appealing aesthetics, the BMW 2 Series Coupé is in a league of its own. Replacing the BMW 1 Series, the nifty new coupé will offer customer’s BMW’s signature driving experience through a range of innovative driver assistance systems and BMW ConnectedDrive infotainment features.
Commenting on the vehicles arrival in Kuwait, Yousef Al-Qatami, General Manager, Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive, said: “2014 promises to be another exciting year for Ali Alghanim & Sons Automotive and BMW, and we are extremely excited and thrilled to start the year by launching the all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé in Kuwait. This vehicle will certainly redefine the premium compact segment and help us provide an exceptional option for Kuwait’s discerning automotive market.”
The individual vehicle concept is underlined by its specific front and rear end design, dynamically stretched lines and an almost 11-centimetre increase in body length over the BMW 1 Series. Lines tapering down dynamically towards the BMW kidney grille lend the front end of the BMW 2 Series Coupé a forward-surging presence. The modified contours of the headlight units narrow at their inner extremes, while a standard accent strip – or, if the optional bi-xenon lights are fitted, an LED accent light – cuts across the top of the hallmark BMW twin circular lights.
The side view of the BMW 2 Series Coupé sees signature brand features like a long bonnet, short overhangs, set-back passenger compartment and Hofmeister kink. The rear of the BMW 2 Series Coupé is a broad and powerful affair, an impression reinforced by the single-piece light units reaching far into the car’s flanks in the L-shape familiar from other BMW models. An unmistakable night design is provided by the likewise L-shaped LED rear light strips within the units.
Lines that speak volumes: BMW Sport Line, BMW Modern Line and the M Sport package
Available as an alternative to standard specification for the BMW 2 Series Coupé, BMW Lines offer harmoniously coordinated exterior and interior design and equipment features. Both lines include 17-inch light-alloy wheels in exclusive designs, ambient lighting with variable use of colours and special seat upholstery, interior trim strip and car key designs.
Once chosen, the BMW Sport Line brings a high-gloss black finish for the outer air intake surrounds, the front of the kidney grille bars, the cross rib in the centre air intake and the rear apron, emphasising the dynamic credentials of this two-door newcomer. When the BMW Modern Line is selected it serves the cause of progressive elegance through the use of matt aluminium for the design elements mentioned above and a body-coloured paint finish for the cross rib in the centre air intake.
Also available from the launch of the BMW 2 Series Coupé is the M Sport package which has been developed specially for the model. This option comprises bespoke suspension tuning, optional 18-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design, aerodynamically optimised body elements, plus a special design for the BMW kidney grille and an exhaust tailpipe embellisher in high-gloss chrome.
BMW Connected Drive: Connectivity with added variety
With the BMW 2 Series Coupé’s ConnectedDrive functionality, drivers can travel better, arrive more relaxed and take advantage of an on-board mobile office, infotainment systems and get connected through social media functionality.
Special driving features include a rain sensor with automatic headlight activation, Adaptive Headlights including cornering light, variable headlight distribution and adaptive headlight range control for city and motorway driving. This model can also be equipped with anti-dazzle High Beam Assistant, Cruise Control, Park Assistant and the innovative Driving Assistant option which comprises the camera-based Lane Departure Warning and Collision Warning systems.
BMW performance: Power to suit individual needs
The all-new BMW 2 Series Coupé will be launched with two powerful engine variants with BMW TwinPower technology. Topping the range will be the M235i Coupe, a BMW M Performance model with a 3.0 litre six-cylinder engine, 326hp andpushing 240 kW between 580 and 6000 rpm. It will be complemented by the BMW 220i Coupé four-cylinder engine with 135 kW/184 hp.
