Although it was finally just confirmed that the last of the BMW 1 Series coupes and convertibles went out of production months ago, we won't have to wait very long to see this model's replacement, the all-new 2 Series. BMW released a teaser video for its new coupe today and also announced that the 2 Series will officially debut on October 25.

We may still have to wait until the Detroit Auto Show to see it up close and in person, even though both the Los Angeles Auto Show and Tokyo Motor Show are nearly upon us. Either way, it's not clear when the 2 Series will roll into dealerships. Considering we've already seen the coupe sitting out mostly undisguised for a photo shoot, there really isn't much to see in terms of styling of the car in this sun-drenched, dirt-slinging teaser. BMW does say that this is the first trailer ahead of the 2 Series' unveiling, so there are likely to be more to follow the video seen below.

      I agree with those in the recent 1-series thread that the old 128i was the car to buy before production ended. Does anyone know if the new 2-series does away with the hydraulic steering in favor of electric? I recently rented a 330d from SIXT and while the Diesel motor was brilliant, the steering was numb and lifeless. My memory of the glory days of BMW are of the E36/E46 NA I6 motors and their heavy, communicative steering. If the new 2 uses an electric setup, then I think BMW is dead for me. If they keep hydraulic, then perhaps the 128i with the 2.0T motor will be interesting. The BMW NA I6 was the best motor in the world and now that it is gone is a travesty indeed.
        whatever

        The last "new" BMW to have hydraulic steering is the X1. The 2-series will have the numb, lifeless steering you refer to.

        Yes! But calling it the 2 series is important, and not just because it has two doors. The new 1 series is now FWD...

          the new 1 series is not FWD yet. the F20 in europe just wont come here and is RWD. the FWD 1 series probably wont be released until 2018 or so.

      I like it better than the 4 series, but how about just bring over the M135i?

      This teaser makes me wonder if BMW is reviving their "The Driver" mini-movie advertising campaign in some form with a new "Driver". I remember how memorable the original Clive Owen "The Driver" ads were and wished BMW made more of them when they first aired. Who knows? A lot of the movies in theaters now are remakes or sequels, so why not commercials?

      Looks promising. The front kinda reminds me of the E46 "facelift". Can't wait.

      Im excited about the 2 series and all (especially if it really drops weight as predicted) but i really want a 135 5dr. I dont care if it looks awkward, i would love to have a 300hp rwd 5dr. Hopefully the US will once day get a 1 or 2 series 5dr
