Here we have the first cold weather testing pictures of the BMW 2 Series Coupe (F22) and Convertible (F23) caught near the Arctic Circle in Sweden. In the gallery below you get to see both BMW 2 Series prototypes with M-package, showing bigger air intakes in the front bumper. The 2 Series Coupe prototype also has double exhaust tips, while the 2 Series Convertible has a single exhaust tip on the left. The new 2 Series does certainly look sportier than the current model.
The new BMW 2 Series will be built on the same RWD platform as the current 1 Series hatchbacks and is basically just a new name for the 1 Series Coupe and Convertible. Rumour is that a 2 Series Gran Coupe and 2 Series Gran Sports Tourer are also planned.
The 2 Series will be offered with both three and four cylinder engines. Rumoured models for Europe include: 220i manual, 225i manual, 225i auto, M235i manual, M235i auto, M235i Xdrive auto, 220d auto, 225d manual and 225d auto.
