That's likely to irk numerous BMW faithful, as it marks the first time one of its sedans will sit in BMW showrooms on front-wheel-drive bones.

The exterior does its best to hide the fact this isn't a rear-wheel-drive car. But every 2 Series Gran Coupe comes standard with all-wheel drive.

I have a feeling this will be a car that needs an in-person look. Then again, most recent BMWs have gone in this direction. If you don't like the 3 Series, the 2 Series Gran Coupe likely isn't your cup of tea, either.

Frameless doors add to the whole "four-door coupe" look.

We'll certainly take a closer look at the BMW's latest sedan when it makes its debut in the sheet metal at the 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show. Production is set to kick off next month before the car trickles into US dealers next March.
