However, a recent report finds the Munich-based company is preparing to take on the Mercedes-Benz CLA at home and on our shores with a second compact sedan based either on the sporty 2 Series (pictured) or on a new modular platform. Tentatively called 2 Series Gran Coupe, BMWs upcoming sedan will essentially be a more spacious version of the aforementioned 2 Series fitted with four doors. It is expected tostretch much longer than its two-door counterpartin order to offer a more spacious interior with an acceptable amount of head room for the passengers riding in the back. The Gran Coupe moniker suggests it will boast a sleek, coupe-like roof lineinstead of a more traditional design likeBMWs bread-and-butter 3 Series sedan. Power will be provided by the same four- and six-cylinder engines used by the 2 Series. Buyers in Europe will have access to at least one diesel-burning mill, but its too early to tell if BMW will take on the 381-horsepower Mercedes-AMG CLA45 with a hot-rodded sedan powered by the M2s 365-horsepower, 3.0-liter straight-six . The Gran Coupe willship with rear-wheel drive, unlike the CLA, and select models will benefit fromBMWs xDrive all-wheel drive system.

If that time frame is accurate, the sedans life cycle will be unusually short because a brand new 2 Series is set to make its debut in 2021.
