New BMW 2 Series Coupé and Convertible.
July 2017 sees the arrival of the new BMW 2 Series Coupé and Convertible, with interior and exterior changes, plus specification upgrades.
The BMW 2 Series Coupé was launched in 2014, with the 2 Series Convertible following in early 2015. Both have proved extremely successful models, offering customers a unique-in-class rear-wheel drive platform, dynamic BMW styling, plus a wide range of engines and models.
Building on this success, the 2 Series Coupé and Convertible now feature an updated exterior design, an all-new dashboard and instrument cluster, along with enhanced specification on all models.
Exterior changes include new LED headlights as standard, with the hallmark four corona ring LED daytime running lights. With LEDs emitting a whiter light that is closer to daylight this represents a step change in lightning technology for owners. In addition, all models (excluding the M240i and M2) will receive LED front fog lights as standard.
The front bumper of the SE and Sport models are redesigned and feature a new air-intake design, while all models gain enlarged kidney grilles with a more prominent chrome surround. These changes, along with the new standard LED headlights subtly enhance the exterior design of the new 2 Series Coupé and Convertible models.
The rear of the new 2 Series Coupé and Convertible models now feature new LED tail lights with redesigned LED light bars. The rear of Sport models also features a new bumper with sculpted design and high-gloss black trim.
New standard alloy wheels are now available with Sport and M Sport models. Sport models gain the new double-spoke 17-inch light alloy wheels, burnished and finished in Orbit Grey. M Sport cars receive Ferric Grey double-spoke 18-inch M light-alloy wheels, which were previously a £175 option. Customers can also choose from new exterior colours Seaside Blue metallic, Sunset Orange metallic and Mediterranean Blue metallic.
The cabin of the new 2 Series Coupé and Convertible now feature an all-new instrument panel, centre console with sliding cup holder cover and pearl chrome accents. The new interior features a premium decorative stitching line on Sport and M Sport models along the top of the instrument panel and the new instrument cluster features a Black Optic display with 3D effect dials, which is standard on M Sport and M240i models, but an option with other cars in the line-up.
The new interior also comes with the latest-generation iDrive software on the standard BMW Navigation and BMW Professional Navigation. The large 8.8-inch screen on the latter navigation system is also equipped with BMW Touch Control for the first time, offering drivers the choice of iDrive with Touch pad, voice control and touchscreen to interact with the system.
The standard specification of all new 2 Series Coupé and Convertible models also includes Servotronic steering, which enhances the driving experience at all speeds, while Active Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop&Go function is now available as an option with most engines.
To complete the new interior, a range of new interior trims and upholsteries is now available, including Corner Sport cloth and Cognac Dakota leather upholstery.
The new BMW M2 has also been updated, with LED headlights as standard, a full LED rear light cluster with new sculpted design, the all-new dashboard from the BMW 2 Series Coupé, Black Optic display instrument cluster, plus Professional Navigation with a new interface, BMW Touch control, faster loading speeds and Live Tiles on the main menu.

BMW 1 Series updated with new interior details.
The BMW 1 Series Sports Hatch receives updates to the model range in July 2017, including a redesigned interior.
Enhancements include a completely redesigned dashboard with Sport and M Sport models, featuring a decorative stitching line that, along with new trims, adds to the premium feel of the cabin.

The new 1 Series also features the latest indicator and wiper stalks, with revised functions and design, in line with the new BMW 5 and 7 Series models.
All new 1 Series models are also now fitted with the latest
generation of BMW’s ID6 Navigation which features Live Tiles and
enhanced graphics. On models fitted with Professional Navigation (as
part of Professional Media package), the larger 8.8-inch display also
features BMW Touch functionality and, with the optional Full Black
panel display (standard on M140i models and the Professional Media
package), the dials now feature a new Black Optic display with
Servotronic steering is now fitted as standard. This adjusts the amount of steering assistance to suit the speed the car is travelling at, enhancing driver comfort at low speeds and improving vehicle stability at higher speeds.
