BMW 2002: Get Ready For A Compact Car
The BMW New Class series lineup included coupes and compact sedans produced by the automaker since the year 1962. New Class was revealed in the year 1950 after establishing an identity of BMW as sports sedans, and it included models powered by 1.5L and 2.0L engines.
New Class vehicles were produced in the year 1962 with BMW 1500 being a prominent new car that flaunted a fresh power-train; these cars had –
- fully independent suspension,
- unified body,
- front disc brakes,
- semi-trailing arms at the rear, and
- a 4-cylinder M10 front-mounted engine.
The company introduced a series of 4-door sedans, and the whole line was broadened by including new models like 2000C and 2000CS 2-door coupes in the year 1965 and 2-door 1600 economy sedan in the year 1966.
