BMW 2-Series Convertible

The BMW 2-Series Convertible replaced the first generation 1-Series. The name is new, but the concept is the same; it is based on the same platform as the contemporary 1-Series hatchback, but both 2-Series coupe and convertible have enough changes to justify the new title. There are many improvements over the older car including a slick new interior, however, the BMW 2-Series Convertible has more competition than ever, not least from the excellent Audi A3 Cabriolet.

In comparison, the BMW provides the most responsive drive with great feedback from the electric power steering, but it is a closer call to decide which is a more capable car. Either way the German brands offer some formidable driving machines that are also stylish and practical for everyday use.

The range of engines includes petrol and diesel alternatives with both power and economy.
