Intended as an upgrade to the 1800 sedan, the 1965 BMW 2000 made its debut. Utilizing the two-liter engine of the 2000C coupe, the 2000 sedan was party to several exterior design changes to reflect its difference from the 1800, such as more exterior trim, new, wider tail lights, and rectangular headlights made an appearance on the new 2000. Due to a regulation in place in America during that time, a second variant had to be made, which featured a modified grill and four round headlights instead of rectangular ones, which North America simply couldnt handle. The 2000 sedan, due to its use of the 2000C coupes large engine and carburetor, could achieve 101 horsepower, making the 2000 sedan feel rather very sporty. It was designed to be a more expensive and luxurious version of the 1800, on the whole, and despite the larger price tag, it was popular and spawned a variety of model variants in subsequent production years.
