2016 BMW 2 Series Buyer's Guide

After but a few minutes behind the wheel, any driver with any kind of experience at all will quickly come to realize a BMW automobile is easily the smoothest car they’ve ever driven. The refinement, grace and fluidity with which they operate are on a plane well elevated above pretty much all other automobiles. Further, their performance makes them quite exhilarating to drive. For the 2016 model year, BMW is offering its 2 Series models in two-door Coupe and Convertible formats with two different engine offerings, as well as both rear and all-wheel drive. Introduced for the 2014 model year as a Coupe, the Convertible was introduced as a new model for 2015. A strong seller for BMW, the 2 Series has been well received.

What makes it move?

Power, as we mentioned before, comes from a choice of two exceptionally sophisticated engines. The base powerplant is a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder with 240 horsepower and 255 ft-lbs of torque. The upgrade is a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder with 320 horsepower and 330 ft-lbs of torque. An eight-speed automatic comes standard with both engines, while a six-speed manual is a no-cost option for rear-drive models. Both engines can be had with all-wheel drive, unless you go for the six-cylinder convertible, which is rear-drive only.

Why buy the 2016 BMW 2 Series?

While the 2-Series BMW is considered the entry-level model in the USA, it comes with all of the goodness we’ve been conditioned to expect from BMW. The model is solidly constructed, and offers first-class accommodations along with outstanding acceleration, braking, and cornering. Practical for use as a daily driver, it has a roomy trunk for its size (even with the convertible roof retracted on those models). The availability of all-wheel drive across the board makes the 2-Series useful in every part of the country, and you can’t overlook the outstanding style quotient. Sporty enough all on it own in standard trim, with the Track Handling Package the 2 Series BMW becomes even more of a driver’s car, with crisper handling and more aggressive styling cues.
