Among the subtle exterior changes to BMW’s entry level two-door models is a re-profiled front bumper with reshaped air ducts, standard bi-LED headlamps, LED tail lamps with an altered lens graphic and new alloy wheels ranging in diameter from 16- to 18-inches.
Combining the coupe’s driving dynamics with the option of open-air pleasure, the BMW 2 Series Convertible will be available as a 230i and M240i models, also available with BMW’s Intelligent All-Wheel Drive System. Short overhangs, a long trunk a set-back passenger compartment, a long wheelbase and a wide track produce the classical proportions of a BMW convertible. The electrically operated fabric soft-top slips down into the body to create a boat-deck look and offers excellent acoustic comfort when closed thanks to additional insulation. The roof can be opened while driving – at speeds of up to 30 mph.
Four new light-alloy wheels also contribute to the fresh look, like the 18-inch wheels in the style 719 M Jet Black. The same design is also available in a bicolor variant, which is only partially black lacquered. For models with the Sport Line, the 725 style wheel is available in 17 inches. For the Luxury Line, the 17-inch double-spoked wheel style 724 is also available from the facelift.
