BMW has announced a plethora of updates to its range for spring 2022.
Kicking things off will be the availability of the 2-Series Coupe with a new 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that’s good for 245 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque. This engine will be offered in the 230i Coupe variant and is paired with an eight-speed Steptronic transmission and all-wheel drive. It can hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.9 seconds.
Elsewhere, BMW has confirmed that from March 2022, a new 223i xDrive variant of the 2-Series Active Tourer will launch. It pairs the intelligent all-wheel drive system with a four-cylinder engine with 48-volt mild-hybrid technology to produce 218 hp and hit 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.9 seconds. Sticking with the 2-Series Active Tourer, it will also be available in a new shade dubbed Piedmont Red and has been updated with a new Driving Assistant Plus package that includes Steering and Lane Guidance Assist.
BMW is also expanding the number of driver assistance systems available with the X3 and X4, adding Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go functionality.
Updates have also been made to the 4-Series family. For example, a new variant dubbed the 430i xDrive Gran Coupe will launch with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder delivering 245 hp and 295 lb-ft (400 Nm) of torque sent to all four wheels. It also sports an 8-speed automatic transmission and hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.1 seconds. Moreover, 4-Series and i4 owners will also be offered more scope for customization from March 2022.
For example, the German automaker has added a handful of new colors, including Brilliant White metallic and Frozen Dark Grey. A new M Carbon exterior package will also be introduced while updated interior spec includes extended BMW Individual Merino leather options. Also new for March 2022 is the availability of Parking Assistant Professional in the iX and an updated My BMW app with expanded functionality that makes it easier to find and use public charging points.
Rounding out BMW’s updates for 2022 are a number of new paint options for the M5, including Sophistco Grey Brilliant Effect metallic, San Remo Green metallic, Skyscraper Grey metallic, and Frozen Deep Grey Metallic. As we covered recently, BMW is also introducing a historic logo to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the M division.
