BMW Asia and Performance Motors Limited today announced the availability of the BMW 216i Gran Coupé, the newest addition to the BMW 2 Series line-up in Singapore. This model joins the existing BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé range, giving motorists in Singapore a choice among three drivetrain options of the four-door Coupé model – BMW 216i, BMW 218i, and BMW M235i.
“The BMW 2 Series houses the most versatile line-up in our model portfolio, ranging from sporty two-door or four-door Coupés, to compact crossovers, and spacious people movers. With such a wide breadth of models, it’s no wonder the 2 Series is a favourite among customers in Singapore,” said Mr. Lars Nielsen, Managing Director, BMW Group Asia. “The BMW 216i Gran Coupé we’re launching today adds further versatility to the premium compact segment by maintaining all the qualities that customers love while packing even more value for money.”
Efficiency on the go.
Powered by a compact 1.5-litre engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and a 7-speed Steptronic dual-clutch transmission, the BMW 216i Gran Coupé delivers a sprightly performance of 109 hp and a class-leading fuel economy of 5.5 L/100km. With 190 Nm of torque available from 1,380 rpm to 3,800 rpm, the engine pulls strongly and provides drivers with plenty of verve on the road. BMW’s sophisticated front-wheel-drive architecture is employed here, imbuing the four-door Coupé with exceptional agility.
The car accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 10.8 seconds, and is capable reaching 200 km/h. With its fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions of only 125 g/km, the BMW 216i Gran Coupé qualifies for a S$15,000 VES rebate.
A standout offering in the compact class.
The BMW 216i Gran Coupé is offered in the Sport Line – it sees design elements in Sensatec as standard, with interior trim finishers in the ‘Illuminated Berlin’ style. The interior ambient lighting can be switched between 6 colours with adjustable brightness. Other luxurious touches include electrically-adjustable sports seats at the front and a sport leather steering wheel. The M high-gloss Shadowline adds a further touch of sophistication with elements such as the window frame surround and C-pillars in black high-gloss. The sporty look is rounded off with 17” light-alloy wheels with a double-spoke design.
As with all BMW 2 Series Gran Coupé models, the BMW 216i Gran Coupé is fitted with the BMW Live Cockpit Professional system as standard. Access to the infotainment offering provided by the BMW Operating System 7 is via a display grouping with two large 10.25-inch screens. The high-resolution Control Display is centrally mounted, touch-sensitive, and angled towards the driver in customary BMW fashion – drivers can configure this large screen combination to their individual preference. Standout features on the BMW Live Cockpit Professional system include an adaptive navigation system and a hard-drive-based multimedia system. In addition to the usual buttons on the centre console and steering wheel, other frontline control elements include the iDrive Controller for ease of use.
The Driving Assistant package is also fitted as standard – this comprises of the Lane Change Warning system, which prompts the driver to guide the car back onto the correct lane by means of a visual warning and, if necessary, a steering input. Other functions include the route-ahead assistant, rear collision warning and crossing traffic warning, which reduces the risk of a collision when reversing into roads obstructed from the driver’s view. Also available is the Lane Departure Warning system with active lane return, which is operational from 70 km/h.

The Parking Assistant provides extensive assistance with parking and manoeuvring, and the Reversing Assistant stores the steering movements for any section the car has just driven forward along at no more than 36 km/h – all the driver has to do is to operate the accelerator and brake pedals and monitor the vehicle’s surroundings. The system is then able to steer the vehicle in reverse – for distances of up to 50 metres at a maximum 9 km/h – along exactly the same line it took when moving forward.
The BMW 216i Gran Coupé is now available for viewing at the Performance Motors Limited showroom.
