2016 BMW 2-Series

The BMW 2 Series is the brand’s entry-level premium compact car, and it offers an impressive level of elegance and a powerful driving experience despite its small size. The convertible and the coupe are the two primary body types available for this vehicle. Both of these designs have just two doors. The BMW 2 Series was first introduced in 2014 and has since replaced various previous models in the company’s inventory, including earlier versions of the 1 Series. This article will focus on the 2016 BMW 2-Series

Overview:

The 2016 BMW 2-Series is offered in 4 trim levels:

  • 228i xDrive Coupe
  • 228i Coupe
  • M235i xDrive Coupe
  • M235i Coupe

Performance and Fuel Economy

A 2.0-liter turbo I-4 makes 240 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque in the 228i, and a 3.0-liter turbo I-6 makes 320 horsepower and 332 pounds-feet of torque in the M235i, both available in the 2016 BMW 2 Series. The M235i and 228i coupes are the only models that may be selected with a six-speed manual transmission as a standard feature.

The 228i coupe gets 23/36 mpg in the city and 22/34 mpg on the highway with the automatic gearbox and manual transmission, respectively. The 228i Coupe’s fuel efficiency is rated as 23/35 mpg when equipped with an all-wheel drive. When equipped with rear-wheel drive, the 228i convertible gets 23/34 miles per gallon; when fitted with all-wheel drive, it gets 23/35. Although the M235i has a lot of power, it gets 20/31mpg with an automatic gearbox and 19/28mpg with a manual transmission. The fuel economy of the all-wheel-drive model is 20/30 mpg. M235i coupe/convertible fuel economy figures are 20/31% when equipped with an automatic and 19/26% when equipped with a manual.

Design, Comfort, and Quality

The 2-Series is connected to the 1-Series, which succeeds, but this particular model is more refined and sharper than its predecessor, and its rear-wheel drive improves its proportions. The 2-Series is much longer, broader, and more spacious in the interior than the 1-Series. As a result of the minor stretch, it now has a curvier appearance, which is more attractive to us in a refined sense. This lends it an air of sophistication. It is a scaled-down version of the 4-Series, which is not always negative, as the 2-Series employs its long hood, stubbed tail, and arched roof as a contemporary take on the old sportscar proportions.

The cabin of the 2016 BMW 2-Series boasts a design that is unmistakably centered on the driver. The dashboard’s instruments and controls are laid out to facilitate quick access, and the arrangement is less horizontal and shelf-like than that of BMW’s bigger vehicles. The inside of the BMW 2 Series may, of course, be upgraded with a broad variety of trim and materials. Still, the car looks and feels best when it is kept straightforward and minimalist to match the concentrated character of the vehicle.

For a compact sports vehicle with just two doors, the 2-Series offers a surprising amount of cargo space. There is sufficient space for people up front, in addition to a broad range of adjustability in a number of different directions. There is sufficient space in the front seats’ tiny storage bins to accommodate small cups and various portable electronic devices. This adds some usefulness to the front seats.

Safety Features

Knee airbags are included in the package for both the driver and front passenger in the 2016 2 Series, in addition to the standard dual front, front-side, and side curtain airbags. The Driver Assistance Plus package is an add-on that can be purchased if the customer desires additional safety and driver assistance features.
