Current Model
    The redesigned 2 Series Coupe is a thoroughbred BMW. Not to be confused with the less performance-oriented four-door 2 Series Gran Coupe, this car comes either as the 230i with a 255-hp turbo four-cylinder or the M240i with a 382-hp turbo inline-six.
    Rear- or all-wheel drive is available. The eight-speed automatic is smooth and quick; a manual is no longer offered. Even with the base engine the car pulls strongly and the engine sounds lovely, and manages a commendable 31 mpg overall. Handling is agile and the ride is very taut. The cabin is nicely finished and the front seats are comfortable. Though the rear seat is quite tight, the front seats power forward to clear a path. FCW, AEB with pedestrian detection, BSW, RCTW, LDW, and LKA are standard.

    2014 Redesign Year
    The small 2 Series coupe and convertible has razor-sharp handling and a sense of immediacy that is unlike other recent BMWs, which seem to focus more on luxury and comfort. The 228i comes with a 240-hp 2.0-liter four-cylinder while the up-level M235i we tested has a terrific 320-hp, 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder.
    Transmission choices are a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. The excellent front seats are surrounded with ample space, but the rear seats remain very cramped. Interior appointments are first rate but the iDrive unified control system remains a bit of a pain to learn and use. . A sportier, more-powerful M2 version arrived in 2016. Updates for 2017 brought a change in nomenclature, with the base 228i becoming the 230i and powered by a 248-hp, 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. The 2020 introduced Gran Coupe 4-door versions, 228i xDrive and M235i xDrive, were based on a different, less performance-oriented platform.
