New BMW 2-Series Best in Segment

With a pair of turbocharged engines from which to choose, a specially-tuned chassis and a suspension system that encourages a driver to unleash her or his sporty self, the all-new BMW 2-Series Coupe and Convertible are sure to spark consumer interest. The new 2-Series, winner of the latest J.D. Power “Best in Segment” survey, will be ready for a test drive at Chapman BMW on Camelback sometime in July.

Choose Coupe or Convertible

Whether you like the look of a hard top with a classic design, or a soft top that can let you get your hair in the wind on occasion, the new BMW 2-Series has a car for you. Both the 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder option come with BMW’s TwinPower turbocharger for maximum power and efficiency. The four-cylinder generates a healthy 248 horsepower, more than enough for a dynamic driving experience. If you require a little more oomph, choose the 335-horse six-cylinder engine. Both engines are paired with an eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, which allow you to use paddle shifters to power through the gears when you’re in the mood. Conversely, you can also allow the transmission to use automatic mode for a leisurely drive.

Bi-LED Headlamps Light Up the Night

The BMW 2-Series now comes with standard Bi-LED twin headlights to provide sharp illumination at night. The flat-bottomed tubes are surrounded by daytime running light rings, topped off by the iconic BMW eyebrow. You can also choose adaptive LED lighting as an option, which will turn as you go around corners to illuminate what’s around the bend. The lights are just part of a sporty front end, characterized by the popular BMW kidney grille. You have 11 colors from which to choose when selecting your new 2-Series, including some new flavors on the palette. An enthusiastic Sunset Orange, dark Mediterranean Blue Metallic and light Seaside Blue Metallic are sure to please.

You’ll Always be Connected

With BMW ConnectedDrive, you’ll never be out of touch with the outside world. The new BMW 2-Series offers the very latest interface technology, with a standard 6.5-inch screen and available navigation. Use your iDrive controller, voice command or touch to make a phone call, respond to a text message or plan your next route. An enhanced Voice Recognition System helps you to focus on the road while still taking care of necessary tasks. An optional wireless charging system lets you keep your phone battery full without having to use messy cords. Make sure and take some time to let the pros at Chapman BMW on Camelback explain all the new connectivity functions when you take your test drive this July.

BMW, TED Combine Visionary Forces

Visionaries Encouraged to Submit Ideas

Recognizing the need to continue innovation to solve the problems of mobility that are coming in the next decade, BMW has teamed with the TED non-profit organization to help promote next-level ideas for transportation.

BMW iVentures Promotes Trailblazers

BMW is already working with visionary scientists and tech experts through its “iVenture” initiative that funds and promotes new ideas. “Ever since the founding of project “i” ten years ago, BMW i has been a visionary pioneer. This spirit of visionary thinking and pioneering action unites BMW i and the TED community,” said BMW VP Hildegard Wortmann. “For all pre-thinkers of inspiring and iconic visions around the mobility of tomorrow, we offer a great stage with this unique cooperation.” NextVisionaries is looking for new ideas that solve the problems of future mobility. Concepts can be related to new vehicles, technology, software, hardware or any products that have the potential to improve personal transportation in the future.

Submit Your Vision

Coming up with the vision for next-level transportation may be tough, but submitting it is easy. Simply go to the NextVisionaries website, come up with a catchy explanation, supporting imagery and links, if applicable. Although not required, a pitch video outlining your idea and methodology to success would be helpful in earning a spot speaking at the New York TED conference this fall.

BMW i Focuses on Visionary Vehicles

Styling Tweaked From Front to Rear

Although elements of the 2012 BMW concept vehicle are clearly evident in the 2018 BMW 4-series lineup, features like hexagonally sculpted LED headlights, a larger air intake and LED lights in the rear all add a bit more pizzaz to the current model. The traditional BMW eyebrow is created by cropping off the headlights slightly. The standard fog lights remain standard, adding to the vehicle’s heritage. Move to the rear and you’ll notice bold lines and a longer design of the rear lights to help make the wheel arches pop out. The new rear apron gives the impression of muscle while the outer contour line delivers an air of sophistication.

Upgraded Interior Adds to High-quality Feel

With new upgraded details like electroplating on many of the trim elements, the interior of the BMW 4-Series feels more upscale than ever before. A leather steering wheel provides a better grip as well as a luxury look. Leather offerings come in Midnight Blue Dakota, Cognac Dakota and White Dakota with contrasting stitching to make the upholstery stand out. With additional packages available, you’ll find a large number of possibilities to create your own version of the new 4-Series.

X Drive an Option on All Gas Models

If you want the ultimate in control, consider choosing the X Drive all-wheel drive system that’s available on all gasoline models. Aside from the obvious benefits of providing traction to any wheel that needs it, X Drive also improves handling when you’re out on a performance run. It reduces both oversteer and understeer on tight corners, improving lap times and delivering a dynamic driving performance. You can choose from two different gasoline engines delivering 248 horsepower and 320 horsepower, respectively. The BMW 4-Series comes with a standard eight-speed automatic transmission to deliver the most power and efficiency through the rev range. Take some time to visit Chapman BMW on Camelback where you can appreciate the styling and performance of the 2018 4-Series.

“Automobile” magazine, a trusted consumer advocate in the auto industry, recently added the BMW M2 to its list of all-stars after trial runs at the Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance. The “Automobile” judges loved the latest addition to BMW’s M lineup, praising its power, ability to hug the corners and agility. Powered by the newest version of the M TwinPower Turbo engine, the BMW M2 produces a hefty 365 horsepower and snappy 369 pound-feet of torque. Check in often at Chapman BMW on Camelback to fully appreciate what the new M2 has to offer.

M2 Replaces M1 in BMW Lineup

A product of BMW’s famed Motorsports division, the M2 was first unveiled in late 2015 as a replacement for the 1 M Coupe. The M2 can zip from 0 to 60 mph in just 4.2 seconds with the double clutch transmission and launch control enabled. Top speed is limited to 155 mph. The double clutch transmission is an option that meshes the workings of two different gearboxes to harmoniously get the most out of each performance range. Gear changes are executed in fractions of a second to cut down track time and produce the smoothest drive imaginable.

Electric Power Steering Delivers Precise Feel

Fine tuned on the toughest tracks in Europe, the BMW Motorsports electric power steering provides the M2 with precise feel and important feedback from every turn and bump in the road. The amount of assistance is directly related to the speed, keeping the driver in complete control at all times. Electric power steering is also a benefit to efficiency, adding more than a half-mile per gallon to the EPA estimate.

M2 Design is all BMW

There’s no mistaking what company builds the BMW M2. With an athletic stance and bold elements of design working together with a sophisticated look that will turn heads wherever you go, the M2 earns the title “Ultimate Driving Machine.” The new M2 pays homage to its ancestors with stylistic references to such classic cars as the BMW 2002 turbo and 3.0 CSL. The short front overhang and long wheelbase combine with such classic features as the front gills sitting behind the wheel arches to send a visual statement of excellence. The wide rear of the car is accented by horizontal lines on the trunk and rear apron to emphasize the grip this car has on the asphalt at all times. Take some time to visit Chapman BMW on Camelback and test drive the new M2. You’ll be glad you did.
