BMW has added to its premium compact sedan segment with the introduction of a 220i Gran Coupé. It joins the 218i and M235i xDrive that arrived in Australia in February.

It uses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder BMW TwinPower turbo-petrol engine with 141kW and 280Nm powering through a seven-speed double-clutch Steptronic Sport transmission. Further control is offered by way of steering wheel mounted shift paddles.

BMW’s M Sport Package is standard. BMW Oz feels many buyers will opt for the added driving dynamics Adaptive Suspension system.

The BMW 220i Gran Coupé will be priced from $53,990 and available for Australian deliveries late in the third quarter of 2020.


We will borrow a BMW 220i Gran Coupé once they hit our shores and publish our road test impressions shortly afterwards.
