One of the nicer cars to drive in open-top form is the BMW 2 Convertible. Classy looks and superb build quality equip this small convertible with loads of appeal. And with BMW at the forefront of driving pleasure, this is a car that deals a great hand.
All the power is fed to the rear wheels, and this provides plenty of grip and controlled handling. The new BMW 2 Convertible is fun to drive and provides excellent feedback for the driver. If you like a quick squirt along your favourite piece of road, then the BMW 2-Series has the performance to satisfy most driving enthusiasts. One of the biggest improvements for the new 2 Series Convertible is the body shell that is now 20% more rigid than the older 1-Series Convertible.
If you opt for the high performance M235i engine, then hang on to your hat because this model is super swift indeed. BMW claim a 0-100 km/h sprint time of just 5 seconds! Next quickest is the 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol, and this is a nice motor that eats away the miles with ease. BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engines feature responsive power delivery and excellent fuel efficiency. They also promise much better emission rates. Double-VANOS and fuel injection technology combined with turbocharging equals superior performance. These engines are winning awards.
For dynamic and frugal diesel performance, the 220d is simply superb. It’s as quick as the 220i petrol, but will return around 4.5 litres/100 km. The new diesel engines employed by BMW are labelled the BMW EfficientDynamics range, and they feature a lightweight aluminium construction and one, two or three turbochargers with variable turbine geometry. Boating the very latest CommonRail direct injection technology, optimum combustion to further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions is guaranteed.
Models for the 2-series convertible include Sport, M Sport and Luxury. The Luxury Line models boast plenty of sparkling chrome, nice 17-inch Y-Spoke alloys or 18-inch V-Spoke alloys, and chromed tailpipes. Inside the Luxury 2-Series Convertible, there are numerous Dakota leather styles and colouring to make your interior space something very special. Aluminium or fine-wood trim finishes off the impeccable appearance. Sport models still have elegant interiors, but do boast racier overtones.
The new BMW 2 Convertible models boast the very latest in LED headlight technology. The L-shape tail-light looks striking in the dark – unmistakably BMW, and a real head-turner. Another nice touch for design appeal is the optional contrast colour soft-top. The electronically operated soft-top can be open and closed at speeds up to 50 km/h. Chrome exhausts, gorgeous alloys and a low-slung exterior make this the perfect way for starting off the New Year. Design lines have captured a low centre of gravity giving the 2 Convertible an athletic, compact stance.
Slip inside any of the BMW 2 Series Convertibles, and the intentions are made quite clear that the wrap around dash is exclusively for driver enjoyment. Plenty of chrome trim provides a premium look and feel, while the optional sport seats ensure unsullied driving delights. If you are into music in a big way, then the sound systems in any of the BMW 2 Convertibles are top notch. The rear speakers are cleverly integrated into the side panelling.
Open the soft-top and experience the road in the all new BMW 2 Convertible. A real pleasure to drive and cleverly priced.
