2015 BMW 2-Series Convertible (F23) with M Sport Package

Article by Andrew Christian, on September 16, 2014

Last week, BMW introduced the all-new 2015 2-Series Cabriolet (F23) but we didn’t tell you folks anything about the M Sport Pack available for the new vehicle. As you can see from the photos, the new M Sport Pack includes a new front bumper featuring larger air intakes, striking side sills, a rear bumper with integrated air diffuser and a high-gloss chrome twin tailpipe exhaust system.

The exterior design is completed by the 17-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design, while 18-inch are available as an option.

Open the doors and you will see the aluminum door sill strips wearing the M logo, new sport seats for the driver and front passenger, a sliding armrest, Aluminum Hexagon interior trim strips with Estoril Blue accents, an M steering wheel wrapped in leather, a special dial design for the instrument cluster, ambient lightning and M driver’s footrest.

The best model to feature the M Sport Pack would be, in our opinion, the 228i Convertible, which is powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder in-line petrol engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology that produces 245 hp (180 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft) of torque.

This model is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.1 seconds when using the manual transmission and in 6.0 seconds when equipped with the 8-speed automatic transmission. Top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

Sport Line and M Sport provide greater individualization

As the first open-top M Performance Automobile, the M235i Convertible has all the elements to maximize the performance potential of the 2 Series Convertible. Customers of the 228i Convertible tempted to look beyond standard specifications will be able to order one of two lines in the US each of which offer individualization through the use of tailored design and equipment features. Sport Line adds 18-inch light-alloy wheels in their own exclusive design plus sport suspension (not available with xDrive) special door sill strips, seat upholstery, interior trim strips and car key designs. M Sport also comes with its own unique trims, car key, plus an M Sport aerodynamic body kit developed specially for the
BMW 2 Series Convertible.

The surrounds for the outer air intakes, the front of the kidney grille bars, the cross rib in the central air intake and the rear apron all have a high-gloss black finish in the Sport Line. These details join together with a reduction in the number of kidney grille bars from 11 to 8 and exhaust tips in black chrome to highlight the dynamic character of the BMW 2 Series Convertible. Sport seats for the driver and front passenger, a specially styled instrument cluster and a knee pad on the driver's side of the center console heighten the sense of sporting flair in the interior. M Sport, on the otherhand, also comprises sport suspension tuning, including a 10-millimeter drop in ride height (not available on xDrive).

In addition, it features 18-inch M light-alloy wheels in double-spoke design, aerodynamically optimized body elements (including large front air intakes, eye-catching side skirts and a diffuser for the rear apron), as well as a special design for the BMW kidney grille and a exhaust tips in high- gloss chrome. In addition to aluminum door sill strips bearing the M logo, features such as sport seats for the driver and front passenger, Aluminum Hexagon interior trim strips with an accent strip in Estoril Blue, an M leather steering wheel, a special dial design for the instrument cluster, and an M driver's footrest also combine to bring an aura of sporty driving to the interior of the BMW 2 Series Convertible.

The Track Handling Package, which is available on the 2015 228i Coupe, will also be available for the 228i Convertible. Inspired by the original formula of BMW "S-package" vehicles manufactured in the course of the past three decades, the new Track Handling Package embraces the desires of the most enthusiastic BMW drivers. It includes the Adaptive M Suspension, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on unique 18-inch light-alloy wheels, Variable Sport Steering, and M Sport Brakes.
