The new BMW 2 Series Convertible M235i
Sporty, elegant lines, an ultra-intense open-top driving experience and dynamic ability outstripping that of its premium compact rivals are the standout characteristics of the BMW 2 Series Convertible, which will celebrate its world premiere at the 2014 Paris Motor Show. The BMW 2 Series Convertible takes driving pleasure into a new dimension for a drop-top model in this class. The four-seater is the successor to the BMW 1 Series Convertible and builds wholeheartedly on the strengths of the most successful premium car in its class. Eye-catching, graceful design and a low waistline – which emphasises the car’s “boat deck” character with the roof down – serve up a distinctive appearance and a refreshing brand of open-air driving pleasure. The electrically operated soft-top optimises acoustic comfort and can be opened or closed in 20 seconds when travelling at up to 50 km/h (31 mph). The impressive torsional stiffness of the body structure and further developed chassis technology deliver a noticeable increase in agility, while the new engine line-up combines enhanced sporting ability with outstanding efficiency.
The BMW 2 Series Convertible also offers innovative equipment features as well as increased space, comfort and functionality and a more premium character for the interior. The range of BMW ConnectedDrive features also includes an exclusive new addition: the BMW 2 Series Convertible is the first model to offer the new-generation Navigation system Professional, which allows navigation data to be updated “over the air” via the embedded SIM card.
