2015 BMW 2 Series 228i Owners Manual – Extraordinary vehicles don’t generally appreciate a ton of show, and the 2015 BMW 2 Series represents the point. Before the 2 Series’ introduction a year ago, we realized it would supplant the section level 1 Series – however, besides its smoother styling, it just resembled a minor departure from a similar energetic topic.
2015 BMW 2 Series models
The 2015 BMW 2 Series is a two-entryway car or convertible with seating for four. There are two trim levels: 228i and M235i. The convertibles are prepared also to the cars, aside from they highlight programmed spring up to move bands and a force worked texture rooftop that is dark of course, with two discretionary hues (Anthracite and Brown) upgraded by a metallic weave.
Performance and mpg
The 2015 BMW 2 Series is back wheel drive as a matter of course, yet all-wheel drive (“xDrive”) is discretionary on each model aside from the M235i convertible. An eight-speed programmed transmission is standard, with a six-speed manual offered as a no-cost alternative on RWD models as it were.
The 228i has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-chamber motor that produces 240 drive and 255 pound-feet of force. In Edmunds testing, an RWD 228i with the programmed ran from zero to 60 mph in simply 5.1 seconds.

The 2015 BMW 2 Series is astoundingly cultivated for a superior machine. Street and wind clamor levels are sumptuously low in the car, however, the convertible’s interior is somewhat stronger than we’d like. In any case, the ride is firm however never unforgiving, even with the suspension alignments at their sportiest. Driven typically, the 2 Series could trick you into believing it’s an individual extravagance vehicle. In any case, on the off chance that you want to assault a few corners, the 2 reacts with superb body control, exact directing, and unflappable balance – particularly with the M235i’s (or Track Handling package’s) updates. Hardly any vehicles at any cost are this made at the two finishes out of the range.
Inside, the 2 Series utilizes a downplayed, driver-driven control design that will be right away natural to BMW fans. Materials quality is awesome for a passage level extravagance vehicle, surrendering little to the apparently fancier 4 Series. BMW’s iDrive infotainment framework controls one of two accessible presentations: the base 6.5-inch rendition or the Technology bundle’s crisper 8.8-inch widescreen. While the iDrive framework looks great and reacts rapidly to orders, we’ve discovered it regularly requires a couple of more snaps and spins of the dial to get to wanted capacities when contrasted with Audi’s MMI or Mercedes’ COMAND interfaces.
