Ten prosperous, revolutionary years had passed since BMW had showcased the first of its Neue Klasse sedans, the storied 1500 model. A great deal had happened since then; sales had been very respectable, designs had continued to improve one upon the other, and BMW was continuing to reshape the automotive industry in ways unimaginable prior to 1961. A decade later, the 1971 BMW 2000 Sedan was running with the torch firmly and proudly in hand. While early New Class iterations had been met with favorable reviews, the driving public quickly developed a taste for more power, better handling, et cetera. The consumer-oriented BMW engineers and leadership responded effectively and year over year continued to exceed expectations. For its part, the 1971 BMW 2000 Sedan was a reflection of the companys commitment to doing right by the public.
The 1800 models, which immediately preceded the 2000s, had been BMWs best-selling and most popular of New Class entries, but the 1971 BMW 2000 Sedan came about at a time when the 1800s were in sales decline. This was in part due to a conscious effort on part of BMW to displace the 1800 and to reinvent itself as a manufacturer of high-end classy cars with sporty offerings under the hood. Though the 1800 was suitable in many respects, it was categorically outclassed by the 2000 which offered greater power and a touch more in the way of trim for the discerning eyes amongst us. Work with a skilled and connected dealer to identify your own BMW 2000 and experience the high class first-hand.
