Performance Capabilities

Without a powerful engine you won’t be cruising around town. Luckily for you, both the BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe and Mercedes A-Class are offered with powerful engines. In fact, you’ll find a 2.0L turbo engine standard on both vehicles. Although, you’ll find the Gran Coupe packs more power in its punch as it delivers 228 horsepower compared the 188 horsepower of the Mercedes-Benz A-Class.

Those who choose BMW will have the option of equipping your coupe with more power thanks to the optional 2.0L BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo engine. With this, you’ll be leaving Mercedes-Benz drivers in your dust as you cruise around the city with 301 horsepower fueling your ride.
