BMW has recently announced its plans to introduce the 2-Series Convertible to Australia, where the model will be arriving starting this February.
The BMW 2-Series Convertible is getting ready to be introduced onto another market, Australia, as the company has recently announced. The model in question will be offered, in the entry-level version, as the 220i, and this will be setting you back for at least 54,900 AUD, plus the on-road costs, but if it doesn’t seem like just your choice, you can always turn your head towards the 228i, which costs 68,900 AUD, plus on-road costs. The top of the line version, the M235i Convertible, will be setting you back for at least 85,800 AUD, plus costs.
BMW says that 2-Series Convertible isn’t getting a diesel version, unlike the 2-Series Coupe, so if you were hoping of buying such a model, you will be disappointed. The company is offering the 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbo engine on the 220i, with 135 kW And 270 Nm of torque, connected to an 8-speed automatic, allowing it to reach 100 km/h in 7.6s. The 228i is using the same unit but in an upgraded version, rated at 180 kW and 350 Nm of torque, being capable of reaching 100 km/h in 6.1 seconds and the range topping M235i is packing in a 3.0 liter six-cylinder engine, with 240 kW and 450 Nm of torque, enough for a 0 to 100 km/h sprint made in 5.0 seconds, which is 0.2 seconds slower than its solid roof brother.
