BMW 2 Series

The BMW 2 Series is a subcompact executive car produced by BMW. The 2 Series has several different body styles. It is available as a compact coupe that replaced the 1 Series coupe, or as a convertible model that replaces the 1 Series convertible in the BMW lineup. There is also a new compact MPV body style, which BMW refers to as an Active Tourer.

The 2 Series Active Tourer mechanicals are unrelated to the coupe and convertible models. While it shares the 2 Series name, it is built on a totally different front wheel drive platform that is shared with the third generation MINI Cooper, dubbed UKL2.

The 2 Series currently competes with new models from Audi and Mercedes-Benz, the A3 Sedan and the CLA Class. In June 2015, BMW also released a seven seater 2 Series Gran Tourer.

The 2 Series Gran Coupe was introduced in October 2019; it is front wheel drive and related to the F40 1 Series.
