Say goodbye to the traditional H/K upgrade and hello to a BMW Sonos partnership. We’ve heard from two sources that BMW is planning on introducing an optional Sonos Audio System to small BMWs replacing the traditional Harman Kardon brand.
Not much is known about the move but we’d expect to see this change filter through all the U06 front wheel drive BMWs from the X1 and X2 to the 1 and 2 series. The rear wheel drive 2 series models will likely stay connected the 3 and 4 series options which could mean H/K will stay in those vehicles.
It’s likely this change will filter into the larger MINI vehicles as they move to the updated UKL platform in 2022 and 2023.
