F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

The upcoming 2 series (F22/F23) is RWD. The F20 1 series replacement is rumored to share an architecture with mini and that's one of the reasons for the move to FWD. That and 80% of 1er hatch drivers didn't know their vehicle was RWD to begin with.

I wouldn't worry about it, BMW hasn't made the decision on future 2 series yet I'm sure.

The F22 is going to be rear wheel drive, just like the 1 series F20. The 1 series sedan coming soon will be based on the F20 technology so that will also be RWD. When they're talking about a 1 series replacement that is about 6 years out. The F20 was just released.

There will not be a new engine in the 1 series sedan or the 2 series coupe. It will be the N20 for the 228i and the turbo I6 from the M135 (can't remember the engine code) in the M235i. At LCI the 1/2 will get a 3 cylinder but that won't be until around 2016. I think we will get it in the US but that is of course not confirmed.
