2015 BMW 2-Series Convertible Spy Shots

Follow Viknesh

BMW’s new 2-Series in coupe form has been on the market for several months and has proven to be a bundle of fun, particularly in M235i guise. But there are plenty of other additions to the 2-Series family on the way. One of these has already been revealed in the form of the 2-Series Active Tourer, and just a few weeks ago we posted some spy shots of a hot M2 model. Now we’ve got our hands on a set of shots showing the upcoming 2-Series Convertible.

The 2-Series Convertible is the replacement for the outgoing 1-Series Convertible and is virtually identical to the 2-Series coupe except for its soft-top roof, which folds away neatly into the trunk.

Expect the engine lineup of the 2-Series Convertible to match that of the 2-Series coupe, meaning a base 228i model powered by a 240-horsepower turbo four and a sporty M235i M Performance model powered by a 322-horsepower turbo six. Both models are featured in the latest round of spy shots, with the M235i identified by its aggressive bumpers and uprated wheels, tires and brakes.

A six-speed manual should be standard and joined by an available eight-speed automatic. Drive will go to the rear wheels only but eventually an xDrive all-wheel-drive option should be offered. The xDrive system has already been announced for the 2-Series coupe.

A debut for the 2-Series Convertible is expected later this year, with sales likely to commence next spring, meaning we’ll see it list as a 2015 model.
