The G42 may in all likelihood have a longer hood and overhang, but the perspective of the camera shot likely has something to do with it.

I am more interested in the trunk line. It looks raised and more like the 1 series did and less like the flat version on the F87.

Unfortunately, with the 4-series now becoming a mini 8er instead of a sportier 3er, I feel like the 2er is going to become much longer and wider.

Yeah that other dude was using incorrect angles in his comparison. This is more accurate. Surprising how similar the profile of the car is to the outgoing model. There appears to be a bit more rake on the new model but that's likely camera angle once again.

In the F series there was a definite step up in interior quality in the 4 compared to the 2 which helped in the price delta.
It will certainly cost less, but I hope that doesn't mean downgrades on the inside. I would pay up to M440i prices for an equal car in smaller package. Just don't tell BMW that.

The sides are too flat. The actual car is more athletic in classic BMW stance.

I don't think anyone knows what the rear quarter window is going to look like. There is a hard piece of plastic covered in camo covering up the area where the kink would be.

Interesting that the C-pillar is camouflaged: is BMW M toying with the Hofmeister kink or considering the idea to affix a BMW logo (as on the BMW 3.0 CSL and 3.0 CS and CSL Hommage) ?

Recently the X2 also got this feature as a change for the sake of change ("For true distinction, the BMW emblem has been repositioned next to the Hofmeister kink on the C pillar. Just another case of breaking the rules.").

Just remember that it is scheduled to go into production in December 2022. Still a long road ahead to a final version.

What do you consider ‘angel eyes’ anymore. Do the new ‘hockey stick’ eyes on the 5 series make the cut?

Now single headlight is a different story.

Anyone know if they lengthened the wheelbase to make it longer?

Actually I just saw this..

https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a3...pecs-revealed/

This 2-series is set to be larger than the outgoing model. The standard 230i (pictured in white) is 4.3 inches longer than its predecessor, it's 2.6 inches wider, and its wheelbase is stretched by 2.0 inches. Front and rear track widths have also increased, by 2.8 inches at the front and 1.9 inches at the rear on the 230i and by 2.5 inches at the front and 2.4 inches at the rear for the more powerful M240i model (pictured in purple).

and this..


https://www.motortrend.com/news/2022...t-look-review/

While looking like a modern (and less attractive) take on a classic Bimmer, the new 2 Series is bigger than the car it replaces. Track widths are up for the base 230i models (2.8-inches front, 1.9-inches in the rear) and the M240i xDrive (2.5-inches front, 2.4-inches out back), and the car rides on a two-inch-longer wheelbase than the previous car. That should pay dividends for backseat passengers, as the last 2 Series was cramped if you weren't driving or riding shotgun; as a bonus, the longer wheelbase should strengthen the 2's high speed stability.
