BMW’s new 2-Series Convertible (F23) had its world premiere at the 2014 Paris Motor Show and showed its sporty and elegant design lines. For those who don’t know, the 2-Series Convertible is the successor to the BMW 1-Series Convertible and follows the same recipe as its predecessor, featuring an electrically operated soft-top that can be “hidden” in just 20 seconds and while travelling at speeds of up to 50 km or 31 miles.

Moreover, the 2-Series Convertible is the first model to offer the new-generation Navigation system Professional that allows data to be updated “over the air” using the embedded SIM card. The German carmaker will offer the 2-series Convertible with one petrol engine and a diesel powerplant.

The 2015 BMW 228i Convertible uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder in-line petrol engine that generates 245 hp (180 kW) and 350 Nm (258 lb-ft). This model accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 6.0 seconds, while top speed is limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The 2015 BMW 220i Convertible uses the same engine, detuned to 184 hp (135 kW) and 270 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque, enough to push it from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.6 seconds while offering a top speed of 231 km/h or 144 mph.

For diesel fans, the 2015 BMW 220d Convertible uses a 2.0-liter four-cylinder in-line diesel engine that generates 190 hp (140 kW) and 400 Nm (199 lb-ft) of torque. As a result, this model sprints from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 7.6 seconds, while top speed is 225 km/h or 140 mph.
