Earlier today we revealed you the all-new 2015 BMW 2-Series Convertible (F23) but we didn’t tell you anything about the most interesting addition of the lineup: the M235i Convertible. That’s right, the sporty coupe just received a convertible version and can be yours for a price of $48,650 including the $950 destination charges.
Just like the M235i Coupe, the 2015 BMW M235i Convertible (F23) is powered by the same 3.0-liter six-cylinder petrol engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology that pumps out 326 hp (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.
The engine pushes the vehicle from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.2 seconds when equipped with a manual transmission and in 5.0 seconds when using the automatic transmission, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.
Fuel consumption is 8.5 l/100 km with the manual transmission and 7.9 l/100 km with the automatic transmission, while CO2 emissions are 199 g/km (184 g/km - automatic). Just like the standard model, the M235i Convertible uses a new electrically powered fabric top that opens and closes in 20 seconds and at speeds of up to 50 km/h or 30 mph.
As standard, the fabric top is offered in black, while as an option the vehicle can receive a new one in Anthracite with silver effect or Brown with silver effect.
When it comes to design, there is nothing changed and the M235i Convertible features the stylish muscular design lines as well as the sporty interior. The new vehicle will make its world debut next month at the 2014 Paris Motor Show, while the first deliveries are expected to reach the dealerships later this year.
