Next Generation 1 Series Coupe & Convertible to Become 2 Series?

P90070253

It ‘s a rumor that ‘s been around for years and now it looks like it may become reality for at least one BMW model line. According to a report in Autobild BMW will rename the 1 Series Coupe and Convertible the ‘2 Series ‘.The idea is that it would help the F22 and F23 avoid confusion with the new family of FWD models also marketed under the 1 Series brand. It would also help in moving the cars slightly upmarket to correspond with a much higher level of premium options that will be available (similar to what BMW has done with the X6 over the X5).

What does this mean for the 1M? Get ready for the 2M or maybe even a M2.

    Its feels odd. I don’t think it matters all that much, but there is an order to their models 1-3-5-7 all odd number series, all front engine rwd. They have a precedent for models that are outside the sedan series being the even numbers – 6 series, X6, Z4, Z8, etc. Doesn’t it make more sense for the fwd platform to be an even number?

      its not about the size – the 6series is smaller than the 5; and the Z4 is smaller than the 3 (and the 1).

      I think the FWD should be the 2 series.
