BMW has announced the official launch of the M235i Convertible in Australia, which will be setting you back for 85, 800 AUD.
The range-topping version of the 2-Series Convertible is the M235i, that is until an M2 will be introduced, and this has been launched recently in the Pacific country. The model in question is carrying a starting price of 85,800 AUD and for the money you will get the M Sport brakes, the 18-inch BMW M light-alloy wheels, M aerodynamics package, Adaptive M suspension, 8-speed sport automatic transmission, Driving Experience Control, auto start / stop, variable sport steering, adaptive cruise control with braking function, bi-xenon headlights, rearview camera, front and rear parking sensors, seat heating, interior lights package, M leather steering wheel, sat-nav, hiFi system, Bluetooth, automatic electric folding soft top roof and more.
The electric soft top found on the BMW M235i Convertible can be operated at speeds up to 50 km/h. Under its hood, we can find the same engine as the one of its solid roof brother, the 3.0 liter inline six-cylinder TwinPower Turbo unit, producing a total of 326 HP (240 kW) and 450 Nm (322 lb-ft) of torque. From 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph), this needs just 5.0 seconds with the eight-speed automatic transmission. BMW says that the new M235i convertible is already available in the company’s dealerships, nationwide. Its pricing does not include the on-road costs and it is 5,900 AUD more expensive than the M235i Coupe.
