The Bavarian Auto Group (BAG), the sole assembler of the German brand BMW, announced the launch of BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé in Egypt. The brilliant new addition to the Bavarian manufacturer’s line-up was the first four-door Gran Coupé released last November.
The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé is a continuation of the Grand Coupé concept which has already achieved success in the premium compact vehicle class.

The exterior also features frameless doors, slightly sloping roof line, sporty rear with LED tail lights, and dual exhaust pipes.
The 2 Series Gran Coupé is designed to be the dynamic scale for cars in its class, offering a front-wheel-drive layout that will enable a more spacious cabin.
