2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe

2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe Review By Auto Critic Steve Hammes.
This is an inarguable truth: BMW’s naming protocols are ridiculous; a bunch of mumbo-jumbo fully understood by only the most ardent Bimmer brain.  But as a general rule of thumb, the higher the number the bigger the body, engine and price. 
When I first heard that BMW was making a 2 Series Gran Coupe I just assumed it was going to be a 4-door version of the current model, much like the 4 Series Gran Coupe. But it isn’t. Unlike the standard Coupe and Convertible, this one is based upon a front-wheel drive car made in the UK. Is this bodystyle going to be a hit for BMW or a one and done? 

MSRP as-tested: $48,195
