Expert Review

By Kelley Blue Book Editorial Staff

Editor's Overview

After its introduction last year, the BMW 2 Series is better equipped to compete against the likes of the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLA sedans with the new BMW 228i xDrive and M235i xDrive all-wheel-drive coupes. However, if you're looking for a 4-door, you're out of luck with the 2 Series, as it's coupe and convertible only.

It's fun to drive because it accelerates quickly and is easy to maneuver.

I like the power it has, the ride, and the appearance. I also like the big trunk. I would rather have a 4 door than a 2 door car. I wish it didn't require premium gas and got better mileage.

- Juanita T

The windows and mirrors and great, you can see clearly.

I like my vehicle, it does not give me trouble and it has nice comfortable seats the car is not too big or too small it has room for when I go shopping and it is just a nice car to have.

- Kayla H

A great car all around I'm so glad that my wife and I bought it

There great Vehicles all the way around the only problem is is trying to get the oil change which can sometimes be a big problem because a lot of garages around do not want to touch it
