Back in early 2020, The BMW 2 Series Gran Coupe was launched in Thailand with only one variant – the fully-imported 218i M Sport. The locally-assembled BMW 220i M Sport arrived towards the end of 2020.

Inside, the 220i Sport features the BMW Live Cockpit Plus system with an 8.8-inch touchscreen infotainment display and a 5.1-inch display flanked by analogue dials. It gets single-zone automatic climate control and powered front seats.
