There is nothing like owning a convertible on a sunny day. Roof down, sun beating down and the wind in your hair. Having a car that is actually half decent beneath you amplifies this great sensation dramatically and the BMW 1 Series Convertible ticked the boxes. It was one of the best compact convertibles but has now been replaced by the BMW 2 Series Convertible, one of the final pieces to the new German number game.
As BMW finishes its rebranding of coupes, convertibles and saloons we find ourselves with this, the 2015 BMW 2 Series Convertible. Making its debut at the Paris motor show, this sleek drop-top inherits the handsome flowing lines of the coupe but adds a folding fabric roof. Said roof can complete the cars transformation in 20 seconds and can be operated at speeds of up to 30MPH. Prices will start from £29,180 and before you ask, yes there will be an M235i variant. That top spec car will push out 322BHP and 332b ft of torque from its inline six cylinder turbocharged engine. 0-62MPH takes just 5.2 seconds and an electronically limited top speed of 155MPH is also possible. 218i, 220i and 220d models are also on offer.
Deliveries start February 2015.
