The BMW 2 Series Coupe will soon be joined by the highly anticipated BMW 2 Series Convertible. To be sold in the United States as the 228i and M235i, the 2 Series Convertible brings the exciting option of being able to feel the breeze while driving with the style and dynamism of the 2 Series Coupe.

To be unfurled for the world at the Paris Motor Show, the MY2015 M235i, the 228i and the 228i xDrive are set to arrive in showrooms across the US in early 2015. Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Prices are set at $38,850 for the 228i, $40,650 for the 228i xDrive, and $48,650 for the M235i.

The price tag already includes $950 destination and handling costs. With the 2 Series Convertible, BMW is trying is emulate the success and sales dominance of the BMW 1 Series Convertible, which was the first open-top premium model in the sub-compact segment. The BMW 1 Series Convertible has been able to thwart various challengers and has already reached sales of over 130,000 units worldwide.

As for the new BMW 2 Series Convertible, its development team focused on building on the strengths proven to be the main factors to the success of the series -- athleticism, design quality, performance, efficiency, driving comfort, functionality and innovative equipment features. Since its introduction in 1966, the 02 series has become a buzzword in the luxury car class for sporty, agile handling – something that became more enjoyable with the top down since 1967.

In fact, specialist coachbuilder Baur also developed a pair of soft-top variants based on the BMW 02 range and produced them until 1975. Back to the present, the 2 Series Convertible displays an exterior typical of an open-top four-seater from BMW -- low-slung silhouette, stretched lines, compact proportions and contoured surfaces.

Just like the 2 Series Coupe, the 2 Series Convertible’s unique design highlights its standalone status in the BMW’s model line-up. Likewise, the convertible’s design promises to fulfill the open-top dreams of luxury car drivers.
