BMW 2 Series Coupe

Previously known as the 1 series Coupe, the 2 series Coupe is built up from the BMW 1 series. The current 2 Series better looking than the 1 Series Coupe, it’s also longer, wider and more practical than before. It feels like a standalone model in its own right, rather than simply a two-door version of the 1 Series. In fact, it looks and feels like a junior 4 Series. BMW facelifted the 2 Series in 2017, fitting new air intakes, a larger radiator grille and LED lights as standard. Only the 218 is avaialble as a 1.5 litre 3 cylinder 134 bhp petrol hitting 62mph in 8.8 seconds and returning up to 52.3 miles per gallon or a 1.5 litre diesel that can reach 62 mph in 8.5 seconds and return a claimed 61.4 mpg. The petrol engine suits the sports car perfectly and the 3 cylinder engine makes an nice noise when pushed.

 

The base SE spec includes: 17-inch alloy wheels with run-flat tyres, climate control, bluetooth phone connectivity with USB connectivity, BMW Professional radio, with DAB and single CD player, 6.5-inch infotainment screen with BMW ConnectedDrive Services, including BMW Emergency Call, BMW Navigation System (with Real Time Traffic Information), BMW Online Services and BMW Teleservices, drive modes – Eco Pro, Comfort and Sport, multi-function sports steering wheel, Rear parking sensors, automatic LED headlights and automatic windscreen wipers. Upgrade to mid-range Sport trim you get, switchable ambient interior lighting, Drive Performance Control including Sport+ mode, sports front seats, chrome exhaust tailpipes. Opt for the M-Sport trim you’ll get 18-inch alloy wheels with run flat tyres, headlight wash, hexagon cloth/alcantara upholstery, M exterior styling with M designation badges, M Sport multifunction steering wheel and M Sport suspension.

BMW 2 Series Convertible

The fabric roof folds neatly into the boot in around 20 seconds at speeds up to 30mph. The rear two seats are small – adults will struggle for knee room and, if the roof is up, head room is restrictive too. The 2 Series Convertible is more about style and enjoyment for two, and it delivers the goods, with a classy, high quality finish and thoroughly enjoyable, yet still very comfortable driving experience. Trims avaialble are the SE and Sport paired to the 1.5 litre 3 cylinder 134 bhp petrol, 0-62 is a respectable 8.8 seconds.
