Full Edmunds Review: 2018 BMW 2 Series Coupe
Acceleration, braking and handling all combine to make the BMW 2 Series an inspiring performer. With the available M Sport adaptive suspension, the poised handling doesn't come at the expense of comfort. There's a great seat-of-the-pants feel, which instills confidence.
Even though the BMW 2 Series is sport-focused, its ride quality can still be adjusted to a compliant level. And at least for the front passengers, the level of comfort is exactly what you'd expect from a luxury brand.
The 2 Series uses interior components from larger and more expensive models in the BMW lineup. The design and quality of materials are close to identical, and as a result the car exceeds entry-level expectations.
There are plenty of pockets and bins in the cabin to hold your small items, and the trunk is bigger than those of most competitors. There are few sacrifices considering the car's small size.
