What Changed

With the introduction of the second generation models, the BMW 1-Series coupe becomes the 2-Series coupe. Compared to the prior model, the 2-Series has grown significantly larger adding 1-2 inches in length, width and height. Two models were introduced for the US market: the 228i powered by a four-cylinder turbo, and the M235i which equips an inline six-cylinder engine.
