Hyderabad: The long-awaited BMW India flagship launch is finally here.
BMW India has commenced the pre-launch bookings for the first-ever BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe.

The M Sport trim, meanwhile, gets 18-inch alloys, ‘Illuminated Boston’ interior trim and the choice of six exterior colours. As is the case with all M Sport models, the 2 Series Gran Coupe M Sport gets a number of M-specific tweaks inside and out.
Outside, it features an M Sport body kit with sportier bumpers and side aprons, ‘M’ badges on the front fenders, a chrome embellished front grille and gloss black trim around the windows.
Inside, it gets an M Sport steering wheel and sporty aluminium pedals.
Both, the Sportline and M Sport, feature digital dials and the option to choose between an all-black or a dual-tone beige-and-black interior scheme.
