What’s New?

In a clear incidence of having your cake and actually eating it, too, one of the most affordable models by BMW is also one of the best to drive. There is even a cherry on top in the form of highway fuel economy of 36 mpg. This luxury car has a surprisingly small price tag and customers are being rewarded with even more standard features in the 2016 model.

Exterior Features

Available in an incredible array of colors the 2016 2 Series has not lost its nimble abilities. The design is as sleek as ever and the wide stance is both aggressive and agile. The 228i Coupe is the most basic of the 2 series lineup but don’t let that fool you. It comes as standard with 17″ y-spoke alloy wheels and a sport kidney grille. BMW don’t ever compromise style and design even on their lower priced luxury cars.
