Here is what we found when we pitted the 2020 BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe against three competitors.


 

2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe vs. 2020 Audi A3 Sport

For starters, the 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe packs a lot more muscle under the engine. The 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe churns 228 horsepower out of the 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine, while the 2020 Audi A3 Sport lags well behind with 184 horsepower from its 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder motor. The 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe is also a bigger vehicle with a 105.1-inch wheelbase to 103.8 for the 2020 Audi A3 Sport. The standard stereo for the 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe also provides more oomph than that of the Audi counterpart, funneling 10 speakers through 205 watts, while the 2020 Audi A3 Sport does so with a 180-watt amplifier.


  

2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe vs. 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250

The 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine in the 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe again wins the horsepower battle, its 228 horsepower outpacing the 221 in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Coupe. The all-new 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe also benefits from all-wheel-drive for increased grip during those frigid Pennsylvania winters, while the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 sends power to only the front wheels. The transmission is also beefier on the 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe, as the 8-speed Sport Automatic transmission allows for better cruising and efficiency at highway speeds than the 7-speed gearbox in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250. 


 

2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe vs. 2020 Lexus IS 300

Much like the 2020 Mercedes-Benz CLA 250 Coupe, the 2020 Lexus IS 300 also sends power to only two wheels, giving the 2020 AWD 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe the leg up in extreme weather. The 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe also reaches 60 MPH at a much brisker pace than the 2020 Lexus IS 300, needing only 6 seconds compared to 6.9 seconds for the Japanese luxury sedan model. When it comes to convenience, the 2020 BMW 228i xDrive Gran Coupe is a slam dunk choice over the 2020 Lexus IS300, as this new-for-2020 BMW model boasts 15.9 cubic feet of trunk space thanks to the sportback design, while the Lexus foe only fits 10.8 cubic feet of space.
