The BMW 2 Series Coupe is now cheaper and better equipped than before thanks to an update to the brand’s compact two-door range.
The BMW 2 Series Convertible line-up benefits from similar specification enhancements, though prices of the soft-top models have either increased or remained the same.
Every variant across the 2 Series Coupe and Convertible family gains a trio of features from the BMW ConnectedDrive technology suite, including real-time traffic information, in-car services and remote services.
Every 2 Series Coupe picks up a reverse-view camera, while 228i and M235i variants (both hard- and soft-top) also gain DAB+ digital radio.
The biggest winner is the 228i Coupe, which scores all of the equipment listed above and a $4500 reduction, cutting its price to $59,900 plus on-road costs.
The entry 220i and 220d Coupes are down $2100 to $48,900 and $50,900 respectively, while a $2040 reduction lowers the price of the high-performance M235i Coupe to $77,500.
There’s now a bigger jump from the Coupe to the Convertible. The 220i Convertible is up $1000 to $55,900, making it $7K more than the equivalent hardtop.
The price of the 228i Convertible is unchanged at $68,900, though the Coupe’s price cut means there’s now a $9K difference between those variants.
The M235i Convertible is now also $9K more than its Coupe sibling at $86,500, following a $1090 increase.
