BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe review

£28,460 - £34,480
Published: 18 Feb 2020


What is it like on the inside?

Does it feel like a coupe? Hmmm. It uses exactly the 1 Series's driving position and dash – a blocky and upright edifice. But you do feel a little more cocooned thanks to the faster rake of the A-pillars.

In the back, legroom isn't at all bad, but anyone anywhere near average-man height is going to be wedging their skull into the headlining. The boot's got a handy double-floor, for a total of 430 litres.

Most versions have BMW's biggest touchscreen, but you hardly need to touch it because there's an unmatched number of hard keys all over the dash (many of them configurable to your fave shortcuts) and around the iDrive wheel. Yes, we still love that wheel. The industry-best for zooming or scrolling through lists while you drive.

The presence of all these buttons doesn't visually jar, because the cabin design is busy. Everywhere you look are ledges and channels and polygons and changes of texture.
