BMW 2-Series
0 Comments

With an engaging ride and spritely feel, the 2-Series is BMW’s answer to those seeking the full BMW experience in a small package. The 2-Series comes in many different forms, though the one variable that doesn’t change is the fact that they are each ultimate driving machines.  

A Look Back At the Beginnings of the BMW 2-Series

The first BMW 2-Series came out in 2014 as a way for the company to fill a subcompact void in their lineup. The 2-Series coupe was meant to replace the 1-Series coupe, while the 2-Series convertible was meant to replace the 1-Series convertible. Beyond that, they created an MPV and Gran Tourer to also be apart of the 2-Series lineup. 

Exhilarating Performance – The BMW 2-Series

The BMW 2-Series has two different engines in the two different models that are present for 2019. The 230i comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine that puts out 248 horsepower and gives drivers a 0-60 time of 5.3 seconds. On the other hand, the M240i has a turbocharged 3.0L inline-six engine with a 0-60 time of 4.3 seconds. 

Each model in the 2-Series is adequately roomy and comfortable with a standard instrument panel and an easy-to-use infotainment system. In terms of safety features, the 2-Series comes with standard forward-collision warning, standard lane-departure warning, and standard front and rear parking sensors. 

The 2-Series can be purchased in coupe, convertible, or competition coupe models. 

A Short Timeline of the BMW 2-Series (2014-Present)

The 2-Series first hit the market in 2014 with an eight-speed automatic transmission and a four-cylinder turbocharged engine. That year was also the first release of the Active Tourer, which was the very first front-wheel-drive car that BMW ever made. 

After seeing the success of the Active Tourer, the company decided to go even bigger with the 2-Series Gran Tourer in 2015. This was the only three-seater model in the lineup at the time. The cars received a refresh in 2018with LED headlights and technological upgrades in the inside. 

The BMW 2-Series In the News

In recent an unfortunate BMW news, the company is set to cancel a few models in the next year, including the convertible model from their 2-Series, as the car overlaps the Z4 and the market is shrinking. BMW will also get rid of the 2-Series Active Tourer in the next phase of cars as well.  

Celebrity Endorsements of the BMW 2-Series

Though there are a ton of celebrities that drive BMWs, we have been unable to find any 2-Series celebrity drivers. We believe that it is most likely because 2-Series vehicles are near the bottom of the BMW hierarchy, and most celebrities opt for higher-level BMWs, such as “X” models or “i” models.
