Recent BMW spyshots

Post by Jeroen » Wed Oct 16, 2019 11:53 pm

At our annual Eifel tour we try to catch a good moment to see BMW testing at the Ring, and again we managed. A few sneak peeks of what we can expect in 2020:

2-series Gran Coupe

I can't help but think "Where did it all go wrong!".

I'm certainly not a fan of the brand these days, bring back the Sharks.

Fully agree buddy, looks like they see Kia as their main competitor these days with the FWD 2-series Gran Coupe as all time low

100% agree. This grand coupe thing is a NON coupe with a large house radiator (instead of nice kidney grilles) to the front
BMW in urgent need to hire a more inspired design team.

It is so sad...

I understand that wind tunnels hold the baton nowadays, however, how did Alfa Romeo managed to find their way ? (because they also passed from an ugly era, but, imho they are producing nice designs again)

(plus to the above: Do BMW seem to be switching eventually to 1) fwd and 2) electric engines??? Even sadder)
