Review Says BMW 2-Series Convertible Is A Joy To Drive

No one expects from a convertible model to be practical and to offer space for rear passengers, especially when we’re talking about a compact drop top like the BMW 2-Series. What people want though is driving dynamics as close as possible to the coupe version, and in this respect BMW has done a pretty good job with the 2-Series Convertible.

Carbuyer’s Ginny Buckley took it for a drive and describes it as a joy behind the wheel and a really fun car to drive. She recommends the 220d diesel version over the 220i petrol as the diesel is more responsive and more fuel-efficient. However, if money was not an issue, the BMW M235i Convertible would definitely be the one to have.

Obviously, there are some downsides in terms of practicality compared to the coupe – the boot is smaller and rear passengers must be really small to fit. But the 2-Series Convertible does its main job brilliantly and that’s all that matters.

    I’ve never sat in the new/refreshed 2-series convertible, although I have to say, I’d probably take the hardtop with a panoramic sunroof over the convertible. I think it looks better tbh. This is still a sweet ride though, the 2-series is my favorite BMW.

    This drop top is truly an elegant beast to look at! A well-carved design and an aggressive stance! You have come up with a fantastic review btw. Thank you. But how does it handle the wind and turbulence at high speeds? If the buffeting gets too annoying an additional wind deflector may be inevitable, something like the BackBlade windstop that I mounted lately on my roadster.
