Edmunds' Expert Review
Providing generous helpings of performance and refinement in an exceptionally well-executed package, the 2015 BMW 2 Series is a top choice among entry-level luxury cars.
Great cars don't always enjoy a lot of fanfare, and the 2015 BMW 2 Series illustrates the point. Before the 2 Series' debut last year, we knew it would be replacing the entry-level 1 Series -- but aside from its smoother styling, it just looked like a variation on the same sporty theme. Once you've driven the 2 Series, though, you'll likely wonder why there isn't more fuss about this attainably priced all-star. Its engines are relentlessly capable, its interior is much nicer than that of its predecessor and its superb handling makes it perhaps the purest driver's car in BMW's lineup.
Taking center stage for 2015 is the new 2 Series convertible, equipped with a fabric roof that powers up or down in 20 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. If you opt for Comfort Access (BMW's version of keyless ignition and entry), you can even operate the top remotely using the key fob. Also new this year -- and a significant departure from the strictly rear-wheel-drive 1 Series -- is xDrive all-wheel drive, offered on the coupes as well as the 228i convertible. If you want AWD in your two-door BMW, the case for buying the larger, pricier 4 Series just got a lot harder to make.
Indeed, it's easy to make the case that the Edmunds "A" rated 2 Series is one of the best values on the market. The "base" four-cylinder 228i hits 60 mph in about 5 seconds flat, yet it returns highway mpg in the mid-30s. The six-cylinder M235i, meanwhile, cranks out 20 more horsepower than the mechanically similar 435i, and its standard sport steering, adaptive dampers and big brakes (all available on the 228i via the Track Handling package) take this already superb two-door to a new level. Either way, the interior is worthy of BMW's reputation for high quality, and iDrive comes standard, too. What more could you ask for in this price range?
Well, OK, you might like an extra set of doors, which brings the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class and the 2015 Audi A3 and S3 into play. Connoisseurs tend to prefer BMW's rear-wheel-drive dynamics, but these front-drive-based alternatives handle very well in their own right, and their four-door designs make them more versatile. We also recommend the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang, as its newfound refinement makes it a more plausible BMW substitute than ever before. But if you're looking for all-around excellence, it's tough to avoid the conclusion that the 2015 BMW 2 Series is the car to beat.
trim levels & features
The 2015 BMW 2 Series is a two-door coupe or convertible with seating for four. There are two trim levels: 228i and M235i. The convertibles are equipped similarly to the coupes, except they feature automatic pop-up roll hoops and a power-operated fabric roof that's black by default, with two optional colors (Anthracite and Brown) enhanced by a metallic weave.
The 228i comes standard with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding heated side mirrors, cruise control, automatic dual-zone climate control, leatherette (premium vinyl) upholstery, a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel (with paddle shifters on automatic-transmission models), eight-way manual front seats and 60/40-split folding rear seatbacks. The standard electronics array includes Bluetooth connectivity, BMW's iDrive electronics interface with a 6.5-inch display and a 10-speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio and a USB/iPod interface.
Aside from its more powerful six-cylinder engine, the M235i adds 18-inch wheels, summer performance tires, adaptive suspension dampers, sportier variable-ratio steering, upgraded brakes, adaptive xenon headlights with LED accent lights, a sport exhaust system, gray exterior mirror caps, an aerodynamic body kit, dark ("Shadowline") exterior trim, a rear spoiler and a sunroof. Inside, you'll find 10-way power front sport seats, driver memory functions, upgraded aluminum trim and an M Sport steering wheel. The M235i also comes standard with exterior and interior ambient lighting.
Options on the 228i include the M235i's xenon headlights and the somewhat confusing trio of the Sport Line, M Sport and Track Handling packages. The Sport Line package adds 18-inch wheels with a few different tire options, a non-adaptive sport-tuned suspension, eight-way manual front sport seats and a smattering of aesthetic upgrades (including black exterior mirror caps and red upholstery stitching).
The M Sport package is a pricier alternative to the Sport Line package that features the sport seats plus 18-inch M wheels (with similar tire options) and the M235i's adaptive suspension dampers, exterior upgrades (except the xenon headlights) and M Sport steering wheel.
The Track Handling package can be ordered either separately or in conjunction with the Sport Line or M Sport package. It adds the M235i's sportier steering and brakes, as well as -- if not already specified -- the adaptive dampersand a set of 18-inch wheels with summer tires.
In other words, if you want a 228i with the M235i's suspension bits, the Track Handling package will suffice on its own. But if you want the sport seats and styling enhancements, you'll need one of the other packages, too.
A number of packages are available on both the 228i and M235i. The Cold Weather package includes headlight washers, heated front seats and a heated steering wheel. The Driver Assistance package throws in front and rear parking sensors and a rearview camera. The Technology package adds a higher-resolution 8.8-inch display screen, an upgraded iDrive controller with a touchpad (allowing freehand text entry), an enhanced driver information display, a navigation system, real-time traffic, BMW Apps (including Pandora and Facebook integration) and BMW Remote Services (allowing smartphone control of remote start and climate settings, among others). The Driver Assistance Plus package requires the Driver Assistance and Technology packages and adds a lane departure warning system and a forward collision mitigation system with automatic braking and pedestrian detection.
Also offered on both models is the Premium package, which features a universal garage door opener, auto-dimming mirrors, keyless ignition and entry, leather upholstery and satellite radio. The 228i's version additionally includes a sunroof, eight-way power front seats (with power lumbar support) and ambient lighting.
Stand-alone options include some of the above items plus automatic high beams, a self-parking system, enhanced USB and Bluetooth connectivity) and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. A mechanical limited-slip differential is available exclusively on the M235i.
performance & mpg
The 2015 BMW 2 Series is rear-wheel drive by default, but all-wheel drive ("xDrive") is optional on every model except the M235i convertible. An eight speed automatic transmission is standard, with a six speed manual offered as a no-cost option on RWD models only.
The 228i has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. In Edmunds testing, a RWD 228i with the automatic ran from zero to 60 mph in just 5.1 seconds.
The M235i steps up to a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that pumps out 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. We hustled a rear-wheel-drive M235i automatic to 60 mph in a blistering 4.5 seconds (4.8 seconds for the convertible).
EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 2 Series depends on which engine you choose and whether you prefer a coupe or convertible. On the rear-wheel-drive 228i coupe with the automatic transmission it is 28 mpg combined (23 city/36 highway) and 27 mpg combined (23/35) with all-wheel drive. The RWD 228i manual drops to 26 mpg combined (22/34). The convertible 228i gets an estimate of 27 mpg combined (23/34) with RWD and 26 mpg combined (22/33) with AWD.
Fuel economy estimates for the M235i automatic stand at 25 mpg combined (21 city/32 highway) with RWD, and 24 mpg combined (20 city/30 highway) with AWD. The RWD M235i manual drops to 22 mpg combined (19 city/28 highway).
All 2 Series models have an automatic stop-start function, which shuts off the engine when you're stopped to save fuel. Automatic-transmission cars also have a launch control feature.
Standard safety equipment on the 2015 BMW 2 Series includes four-wheel antilock disc brakes (with brake-drying and fading-compensation features), traction and stability control, and hill-start assist for manual-transmission cars. Front-seat side airbags, front knee airbags and (on the coupe) full-length side curtain airbags are also standard.
Optional safety equipment includes front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, a lane-departure warning system and a frontal collision mitigation system with automatic braking.
During Edmunds testing, a 228i M Sport came to a stop from 60 mph in 111 feet, a better than average performance. The M235i was even more impressive, performing the same task in only 106 feet (104 feet for the convertible).
The independent Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2 Series its top rating of "Good" in the small-overlap frontal offset, moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side impact and roof-strength tests. The 2 Series' seat and head restraint design was also rated "Good" for whiplash protection in rear impacts.
The 2015 BMW 2 Series is exceptionally civilized for a high-performance machine. Road and wind noise levels are luxuriously low in the coupe, though the convertible's interior is a bit louder than we'd like. Either way, the ride is firm but never harsh, even with the suspension calibrations at their sportiest. Driven normally, the 2 Series could fool you into thinking it's a personal luxury car. But if you feel like attacking some corners, the 2 responds with excellent body control, precise steering and unflappable poise -- especially with the M235i's (or Track Handling package's) upgrades. Few cars at any price are this composed at both ends of the spectrum.
In the engine room, the base 228i hardly feels like settling. Punching far above its nominal 240-hp rating, with superior fuel economy to boot, the 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder is good enough to make you question the need for the M235i's 3.0-liter six-cylinder. But then you drive the exquisitely refined, astonishingly quick M235i, and you're quickly reminded why BMW's inline-6 engines are among the all-time greats. You really can't go wrong either way. The eight-speed automatic transmission is another highlight, responding smoothly and quickly to commands. It's heartening to see the sweet six-speed manual soldiering on as a no-cost option, at least for now.
Inside, the 2 Series employs an understated, driver-centric control layout that will be instantly familiar to BMW fans. Materials quality is very good for an entry-level luxury vehicle, giving up little to the ostensibly fancier 4 Series. BMW's iDrive infotainment system controls one of two available displays: the base 6.5-inch version or the Technology package's crisper 8.8-inch widescreen. While the iDrive system looks good and responds quickly to commands, we've found it often requires a few more clicks and whirls of the dial to access desired functions as compared to Audi's MMI or Mercedes' COMAND interfaces.
In typical BMW fashion, there are multiple front seat designs to choose from. Our preference is for the ultra-supportive sport seats, whether you get the 228i's optional manual chairs or the M235i's standard power thrones. As for rear passenger space, the 2 Series is a compact car, and adults won't fit comfortably unless they're compact themselves. That's not unusual for the segment, though, and the backseat works nicely as a parcel shelf or a place to buckle in small children.
Trunk capacity in the coupe is a respectable 13.8 cubic feet, and the rear seatbacks fold down to allow transport of longer items. In the convertible, BMW projects a 7 percent improvement over the 1 Series convertible's 8.5-cubic-foot cargo hold with the top down.

More About This Model
The 2015 BMW 2 Series Convertible is the drop-top version of the 2 Series coupe, BMW's entry-level model in the U.S. The 2 Series convertible offers the fun, precise steering and handling we expect from BMW, along with a choice of two eager-yet-efficient turbocharged engines. It's small, light and nimble, and believe it or not actually offers good value when you take into account the sporty driving experience, high build quality and BMW's free maintenance plan.
What Is It?
The 2 Series convertible takes over for the car previously known as the 1 Series, but there's more going on here than just a number upgrade. The car has been extensively redesigned with a more visually pleasing, less compact body, along with a reworked interior. This four-seat convertible comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available in the form of the 228i xDrive model.
For the change from 1 Series to 2 Series the wheelbase was extended by 1.2 inches, the overall length increased by 2.8 inches (to 174.7 inches) and width increased by an inch. Those dimensions make it quite similar in size to the 2015 Audi A3 Convertible, but it's more than 8 inches shorter than the Infiniti Q60 convertible.
Two turbocharged engines are available in the 2 Series convertible. The 228i model comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder rated at 240 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. The M235i features a 3.0-liter inline-6 with 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque. The 228i and 228i xDrive (all-wheel-drive) models come only with an eight-speed automatic transmission with standard paddle shifters, while the M235i comes with either the eight-speed automatic or a six-speed manual, at no extra cost.
The 2015 BMW 228i Convertible starts at $38,850, with the 228i xDrive at $40,650 and the M235i beginning at $48,650. Our test car, a 228i Sport Line with numerous option packages, including the $3,400 Premium package (power front seats, Dakota leather, satellite radio, ambience lighting, Comfort Access keyless entry) and the $2,200 Track Handling package (18-inch wheels with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, adaptive M suspension, M Sport brakes, variable sport steering) was $53,825 as tested.
How Does It Drive?
It drives like a small, lightweight BMW, if there's anyone out there who can still remember what that's like. We were only able to test out the base 228i model, but that was just fine with us. The 2 Series is the perfect size for BMW's turbocharged four-cylinder. There's plenty of punch to thrust this 3,625-pound car forward with verve; the bundles of midrange torque getting us around semis on two-lane roads with ease.
It's so quick and feels so spritely, it makes the case for the considerably more expensive M235i a difficult one. Sure, the extra power from the turbo inline-6 would be nice, but we definitely can't complain about how well the revvy four-cylinder and quick-but-smooth-shifting eight-speed automatic transmission work in concert.
BMW says the 228i convertible will hit 60 mph in 5.7 seconds. Since we managed 5.1 seconds to 60 mph in a 2014 BMW 228i Coupe, that's probably a conservative figure. Of note, BMW claims the 228i xDrive is a tenth quicker, while the M235i convertible will do zero to 60 mph in a scintillating 4.8 seconds.
Thanks to a well-balanced chassis, the 228i feels great on the road. Even better if that road has twisty bits, since a small rear-wheel-drive car is a sure recipe for enthusiastic driving. The electric-assist steering feels spot-on, with levels of effort just on the heavy side. Grip is plentiful, and the car tracks through corners with ease.
Our test car's optional adaptive M suspension lets you adjust the dampers between softer and stiffer settings. Sport and Sport Plus are definitely stiffer (though never harsh) and can get jittery over bumps, but you'll appreciate the precision they give when you take turns at speed. The Comfort setting is supple, more than soft enough to soak up any and all bumps we came across, and eliminates the Sport setting's occasional bumpiness.
The Track Handling package's larger, upgraded M Sport brakes felt powerful without being touchy around town. The pedal has a firm, positive feel.
The power soft top opens or closes in 20 seconds, which isn't exactly quick. The process is rather elaborate, and the pieces move slowly. On the bright side, it can be opened or closed at speeds up to 30 mph. Wind is managed well with the top and windows down and the standard wind deflector (situated in the rear seat area) in place. With the top down, windows up and deflector in place, wind rustling is kept so low that you can carry on a normal conversation without having to raise your voice.
What's the Interior Like?
We weren't able to sample the 228i convertible's standard seats, but we can tell you the optional leather sport seats are incredible, with enveloping cushions along with generous lateral support to hold you in place through corners.
The steering wheel seems almost too large in diameter for the size of the car, but it's the usual BMW thick-rimmed affair that feels good in your hands. The rear seat has surprising knee room and foot space for a subcompact, and the seat bottoms are plenty comfy. But the car's narrowness in the rear means the outer seatbacks dig into your back a bit. Up front, though, there's enough room that driver and passenger aren't constantly bumping elbows.
The interior controls work with the heft and fluidity of action in knobs, buttons and stalks that we expect from BMW these days. Nothing is striking inside the cabin, styling-wise, with a wide, flat center stack and rather normal-looking gauges. The iDrive infotainment system makes sense with just a bit of familiarity, and the central screen for the navigation system has impressively sharp graphics.
It should be noted the 228i convertible does not come standard with a navigation system, satellite radio, a rearview camera or heated seats. They're all available through option packages at extra cost, of course, but for a luxury convertible nearing $40,000, some shoppers might expect these features to be included.
The trunk is slightly bigger, with a wider pass-through from the passenger compartment. What that means is there's enough space to slide in not just skis, but now also two snowboards or two golf bags from the trunk when you fold the rear seat down.
What Safety Features Does It Offer?
All 2015 BMW 2 Series Convertibles come standard with typical safety systems like traction control, stability control and multiple airbags for the driver and front passenger. Further, the convertible has a rollover protection system which, if the vehicle starts to overturn, activates additional head protection within a fraction of a second. Other standard features include a rain sensor with automatic headlight activation and dynamic cruise control with an automatic braking function.
Optional safety equipment includes front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, a lane departure warning system and a frontal collision mitigation system with automatic braking.
What Kind of Fuel Economy Can You Expect?
The EPA rates the 2015 BMW 228i Convertible at 27 mpg combined (23 city/34 highway) with the eight-speed automatic transmission. The previous car, the 2013 128i convertible (with a naturally aspirated 3.0-liter inline-6 engine and six-speed automatic) was rated at 21 mpg combined (18/27).
The 228i xDrive convertible is rated at 25 mpg combined (22 city/32 highway). The new eight-speed automatic greatly aids the M235i convertible's fuel economy versus the previous 135i's seven-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission. The EPA says the new car will garner 25 mpg combined (21 city/32 highway) in contrast to the 135i's 20 mpg combined (18 city/25 highway).
What Are Its Closest Competitors?
As a subcompact, rear-wheel-drive entry-level luxury convertible, direct competitors for the BMW 2 Series are few. This is a performance-oriented machine, whether in 228i or M235i form, with class-leading acceleration and handling, not to mention German refinement and a solid cabin. The 228i offers strong value, too, when you take into account the level of driving experience on offer here, plus BMW's standard free maintenance plan.
2015 Audi A3 Convertible: The A3 convertible is the 228i's most obvious competitor. Both cars are German, have turbocharged engines and retractable power soft tops, and are of a similar size. But neither of the A3 convertible's turbocharged four-cylinders is as powerful as the BMW's base engine. The A3 convertible also doesn't have a rear-drive option, but it does start a few thousand dollars less than the BMW.
2015 Ford Mustang Convertible: Automotive "purists" might scoff at comparing a Ford Mustang to a BMW. But there are commonalities here. Both are four-seat soft tops, have rear-wheel drive and, if you opt for the Mustang EcoBoost, are powered by turbocharged four-cylinders. Then there's bang-for-the-buck to consider: The six-speed manual 310-hp EcoBoost Mustang convertible starts at $35,495, or you can opt for the V6 at just $29,925. Step up to the Mustang GT convertible and you'll be driving a burly 435-hp 5.0-liter V8 with a starting price of $42,425.
2015 Infiniti Q60 Convertible: With a starting price of $49,455, Infiniti's Q60 convertible is more a competitor to the M235i convertible than the 228i. Like the BMW, the Infiniti sends its power to the rear wheels. But unlike the BMW it has the benefit of a retractable hardtop and is powered by a naturally aspirated 3.7-liter V6 that puts out a muscular 330 hp.
Why Should You Consider This Car?
Because you love driving, sometimes just for the sake of driving. And you want a small convertible. This is a thoroughly capable back-road machine, yet it doesn't constantly remind you of that. It can be quiet and comfortable, or serious and sporty. It's always fun to drive, and the ability to drop the top on a sunny day amplifies the effect.
Why Should You Think Twice About This Car?
It's small; there's no getting around that. While front-seat occupants aren't affected too much by its size, anyone who sits in the rear seat will be. If you need more room, you should think about stepping up to the more expensive BMW 4 Series, or a larger convertible from rivals. Also, while the starting price is reasonable, it gets expensive quickly if you add in some of the option packages.
