The new 228i Convertible joins the 235i in the BMW range as the smallest and most affordable ragtop BMWs since the first-gen Z3 of the 1990s.
We're excited to report that the style of the new 2 series convertible really looks fantastic. The car's distinctive nose and new kidney design is ultra subtle, but very new actually versus cars like the current 5 series.
As evidence of BMW's utter brilliance in product variations: this new ragtop even offers xDrive AWD. No demerits in ride height, either. Clever stuff -- and the xDrive 228i has an extra 60 pound-feet of torque versus the rear-drive 228i, so that they are equal in approximately 6.0-second sprint times to 60-mph.
