10 Jul 2020  |  BMW Reviews
The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe delivers coupe-inspired styling while still maintaining reasonable practicality on the inside. But can you live with its styling?

Review
So, while the review on sgCarMart says that the car looks better than in photos. My first thought when I saw the 2 series Gran Coupe in real life is that it looks like an upmarket Attrage... The narrow width of the car and its pudgy stature seriously makes it look more like a budget compact sedan, instead of a graceful coupe that it's suppose to emulate.

Now, looking past the looks and design of the car, the interior is indeed quite nice, it reminds of other more larger BMW like the 3 series, nothing unexpected here. While the coupe inspired roofline doesn't help much with the exterior design, it does take away some rear headroom. The centre seat is pretty much useless for adults, in fact, just keep it to 2 passengers at the rear and you should be fine.

Drive wise, it's quite expectedly good, with nice and nimble handling that BMW is known for. Honestly, it's the exterior design that's the worst for this car, if only it is a little longer and wider, it might look better. But right now, you get a short and tall-looking car, with a front end that reminds of other budget compact sedans.

What I like
- Drives nicely as expected of BMW cars
- Engine has sufficient power even though it's a small 1.5l 3 cyclinder
- Well made interior

What I do not like
- Short and pudgy looking with those big grilles, really looks like a slightly more upmarket Mitsubishi Attrage...
- Headroom compromised, all while not even making the exterior look stunningly good...
