Editor's Overview

BMW’s 2 Series for 2016 takes us back to the days when BMW coupes were small, light and efficient machines, fun to drive and not too pricey. With no sedan in the lineup, the 2 Series can’t match the versatility of the Audi A3 or Mercedes-Benz CLA. Then again, these rivals can’t match the satisfaction of driving a hardtop coupe.

The several driving functions from eco to sports plus.

The 2 series is a step up from the 1 series. The drive is pure comfort and luxury while still getting the sport functions. When changing driving functions the car quickly changes with no issues compare to the 1 series. Some features that are great is the sport seats, emergency calling, 7 gears when driving as manual. Great car.

- April B

This car is all class and will hold resale value when the time comes to upgrade.

Love this car, its a two door, but 4 seater. The trunk has good room for a small car. Lots of power and good gas mileage. Has run flat tires that eliminates a blow out at high mph and can drive to get repair. The convertible is electric and easily operated. Corners exceptionally and holds cruising speed well.

- Gretchen C

My BMW 2016 2-series car is very cozy.

I really love my car. It may not be the best out there, or the most expensive, but it is really comfortable and it does its job very well. The seats are super comfortable and make me feel very relaxed. It is an amazing feeling after a stressful day at work. I would definitely recommend it to anyone.
