The car’s desirable coupé look is very much apparent, thanks to a two-door body and swept-back roofline. The vehicle’s artfully contoured bonnet and flanks provide it with subtly muscular looks – and, of course, the iconic kidney radiator grille makes it very clear that it’s a car of distinction.
Unlike some coupés, the BMW Series 2 provides plenty of elbow room in the back, and room for two adult travellers. In the front compartment, even taller travellers will enjoy the generous levels of space – and the cabin has a light and airy feel, thanks to expansive windows all around.
Entry-level SE trims are fitted with a 1.5-litre 136bhp petrol engine, which produces 0-60mph in approximately 8.6 seconds, a maximum speed of 130mph and up to 45.6mpg. For greater efficiency, opt for models that are installed with a 2.0-litre diesel unit, which returns as much as 62.8mpg and produces CO2 emissions from just 122g/km. Offering optimum pace and power is a 3.0-litre petrol engine, which delivers 500Nm of torque, 0-60mph in roughly 4.4 seconds and a top speed of 155mph. All models come with rear-wheel drive, providing enhanced handling – and greater up-hill traction than front-wheel-drive alternatives.
A wide range of infotainment features are included as standard. For instance, SE grades are fitted with a six-speaker sound system, incorporating an MP3-compatible CD player, an FM/AM radio and DAB digital tuner. More listening options are provided by AUX and USB ports – and Bluetooth connectivity, which allows you to stream audio content from your compatible devices, and enables you to enjoy hands-free telephony. With the vehicle’s standard-issue 6.5-inch navigation system, you can plan your journeys with ease. Features include 3D mapping – and real-time traffic updates, which allow you to intuitively make last-minute route changes.
