Nice BMW convertible. Fun to ride, excellent car.
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.
The 2.0-liter turbo engine gets the 2 Series up to 60 mph quicker than pretty much all of its rivals. Whether storming onto highways or just commuting, shifts from the eight-speed automatic transmission are quick and smooth.
With the optional M Sport brakes and summer tires, our test vehicle stopped from 60 mph in only 111 feet. During these panic stops, distances were consistent, and the car remained composed and controllable.
The 2 Series is very responsive. Effort is light at slow speeds and weights up appropriately when going faster. Feedback is a little lacking, but the M steering wheel feels great in your hands.
It's an absolute joy to toss the small 2 Series into a series of sharp bends. In Sport Plus mode, the stiffer suspension settings relay all vital information to the driver, and the stability control allows for some thrills.
In Comfort or Eco Pro modes, the softer suspension settings and dialed-back throttle response make the 2 Series well-mannered for everyday driving. The engine stop-start feature is quick to respond and requires no forethought from the driver.
