BMW 2 Series Coupe (2021-present): dimensions and boot space

Boot size, length, width, height and interior dimensions of the BMW 2 Series Coupe – all the measurements you need to know about

With its two-door saloon shape, the BMW 2 Series is very much a traditional sports coupe. And in a world where hatchbacks and SUVs are the norm, its understated style actually helps it stand out from the crowd.

Its engine range offers a compelling combination of great performance and solid fuel economy, whether you opt for the efficient yet flexible 220d diesel or the rather more punchy 374hp four-wheel-drive M240i xDrive.

The version of the BMW 2 Series Coupe launched in late 2021/early 2022 is somewhat larger than the older versions of the same model, but it’s still very much a compact, sporty coupe and significantly smaller than the more expensive 4 Series Coupe, with which it shares many components, including engines and gearboxes.

The available range of the BMW 2 Series Coupe is somewhat limited, however, with only a single trim level - M Sport - and two petrols and one diesel engine to choose from. Read on for more details about its dimensions and boot space.

BMW 2 Series Coupe dimensions

In terms of overall length, the 2 Series Coupe is a little more than 4.5 metres long. As such, it’s marginally longer than a regular family hatchback like the Mercedes A-Class or Volkswagen Golf, albeit only slightly. It’s also family hatch-sized in its width at 1.8m wide - a little more than 2 metres when you count the door mirrors. It is lower than a Golf or BMW 1 Series hatch, however, at just under 1.4 metres, which helps in making it look like a low and sleek sports car.

But even though it takes up about the same amount of space on the road as a regular family hatchback model, the interior delivers less space for passengers. This is because the saloon body shape limits room a little with its sloping roof at the rear, but also because of the way the engine is mounted lengthways. This means the engine bay takes up more of the overall length of the car, limiting passenger space.

With the 2 Series Coupe, that lack of room in the passenger compartment is mostly felt in the rear seats. That said, this model is around 10 centimetres longer than its predecessor and around six centimetres wider, so it won't feel all that restricted in the rear, and front-seat space should be generous.

BMW 2 Series Coupe boot space

Despite the 2 Series Coupe having a less practical format - doing without a hatchback - its boot is actually 10 litres larger than the one you’ll find in the VW Golf hatchback, at 390 litres. While the Golf makes it easier to load large items through the hatchback, and has a taller load space - as you can remove the boot cover - the BMW is still decently practical, being able to carry a good volume of smaller items.

Yet, despite a boot opening that’s a little more awkward than a hatchback’s, the space in the 2 Series Coupe’s boot is still reasonably large - and 85 litres larger than what you’ll find in an Audi TT, though the TT's hatchback and rear seats that fold down mean that it is possible to load large items easily when you need to.

BMW 2 Series Coupe towing capacity

A two-door coupe isn’t likely to be top of the list if you’re planning to do a lot of towing, but the 2 Series Coupe is rated as being able to tow up to 1,600kg for all models. This makes it a perfectly capable tow car for relatively light hauling duties.

That said, if you want a tow car with a BMW badge on the nose and you need to tow heavy trailers or caravans, a BMW X3 or X5 would be a better bet, as these larger SUVs make more stable, capable towing platforms.

BMW 2 Series Coupe weight

If you want to understand the weight of a car, the vital statistic you need to find out is its kerb weight. This is a real-world measure, as it takes into consideration all the fluids in the engine, a tank of fuel and 75kg for the weight of a typical driver.

In the case of the 2022 BMW 2 Series Coupe, that figure comes out at 1,565kg for the 220i, 1,655kg for the 220d model and up to 1,765kg for the M240i xDrive model with its larger engine and four-wheel drive components.
