BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe Cars Do Not Come Cheap!
We have just received new official information revealing the price of the new BMW that will compete specifically against Mercedes CLA.
We are talking about the new BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe that was officially launched last October, a 4-door compact segment car which is smaller than its sister BMW 3 Series. The new Bavarian car is supposed to be offered in worldwide markets in March 2020.
According to the official information, the new BMW price will start in the US market from $ 38,495 (144,356 SAR) for the 228i xDrive with a shipping fee of $ 995, while the 2020 BMW M235i xDrive price will start from $ 46,495 equivalent to 174,356 SAR.
When comparing the price of the new BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe with its usual competitor Mercedes 2020 CLA 250, we note that the latter is cheaper by 850 USD (3,187 SAR).
Just as a reminder these are the mechanical specifications of both versions:
2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe:
The standard model is powered by a 4-liter turbocharged engine generating 228 hp (231 PS) and 350 Nm of torque. It accelerates from zero to a speed of 96 km / h in 6 seconds.
2020 BMW M235i xDrive Gran Coupe:
Although powered by the same engine in the previous version, but it produces 301 horsepower (306 PS) and 450 Nm of torque, and can accelerate from Zero to 96 km / h in 4.7 seconds.
Both versions are connected to an 8-speed automatic transmission with all-wheel-drive system.
We would also like to remind you of our colleague Suhaib Shashaa’s test-drive of the new Mercedes CLA in one of Special Coverage program episodes!
