With the BMW 2 Series finally being revealed just before its big Detroit Motor Show debut in January 2014, a lot of interest was centered on the Convertible version, which as we know will follow after the release of the Coupe.
This kind of reminded me of the 2014 Corvette Stingray because while there was huge attention for the Coupe, many of us seemed more interested in the Convertible version, which made a showing at Geneva this year.
We can tell you that the soft-top BMW 2 Series Convertible version will be released around 6 months after the Coupe. Not all will want the soft-top and would love to see a hardtop Convertible, but as yet there is no news on this.
Back to the Coupe model; we can see with these official images that the new BMW 2 Series will go head-to-head with the Audi TT and Peugeot RCZ, and we should not take it for granted that BMW will have it all its own way, as some would say some of the models are a bit on the boring side.
However, looking at some of the new design features of the 2 Series, it does look as though BMW is on the right track, but we will have to wait and see if it is enough. Let us hope they sort the interior out, as BMW is notorious for its bland cabins.
The price for the BMW 2 Series will start from £24,000, but there is an M version, and an even more powerful M2 version costing around £45,000. Will you be more than happy with the standard Coupe version of the new BMW 2 Series, or would you rather hold out for the M Sport or Convertible?
Thanks to BMW.
