The worst model, the M240i xDrive, has 370 horsepower and everything you could possibly need – except for one important detail.

Fundamentalists can breathe a sigh of relief – Not affiliated with the BMW 2 Series Coupe (G42) Regular 2-Series Gran Coupe Footprints become front wheel drive. Instead, classic rear-wheel drive is offered with straight drive, except for the top model M240i xDrive that drives all four.

In terms of chassis, the new G42 2 Series offers an “ideally balanced 50/50 weight distribution,” according to BMW.
