The 2 Series was the most anticipated coupe when it arrived in early 2014. Now that we have been accustomed to the idea of the 2 Series Coupe, BMW hits us with the 2 Series Convertible to be named the 228i with available xDrive and M235i. The 228i with xDrive featuring BMW’s intelligent all-wheel drive system and the M235i, which is BMW’s first open-air BMW that proudly represents the M badge. They will be priced at $38,850 for the base 228i and $40,650 for the 228i xDrive. While the M235i will be priced at $48,650 including $950 destination and handling fee. The 2 series will make its world debut at the acclaimed Paris Motor Show next month.
The 2 Series follows its little brother the 1 series, which was the industry’s first two-door convertible luxury sports car. The 1 Series held it’s own and proved its worth among pretenders in the market. Yet with the new 2 Series, BMW has focused on even more performance, improved driving comfort, functionality, and innovative state of the art equipment to enhance and pay homage to its predecessor.
So why call it the 2 Series? Well its because in 1966 the BMW 02 was introduced and quickly became known as an exceptional and sporty driving experience. The 02 was known for its agility and handling all while letting the top down. As a result of the success the BMW 2 Series is born.
