Don't be misled into thinking the 2 Series Gran Coupe is simply a four-door version of the 2 Series.
The Gran Coupe rides on a completely different, less performance-oriented platform that it shares with the X1 and X2 small SUVs.
Nonetheless, it packs a healthy level of BMW DNA and will put a grin on a driver's face when the road gets twisty.
The Gran Coupe's front-wheel-drive-based platform shows its limitations only when the car is pushed to its limits.
The standard 228-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder delivers eager power through a responsive transmission.
Ride comfort is on the stiff side.
The rear seat is cramped, and access is awkward.
FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, and BSW are standard.
