What's New for the 2018 BMW 2 Series?

To begin with, on the exterior, BMW has added three new metallic colored paint schemes to the lineup. Four new wheel designs were also added to make the car look that much sharper from the outside. High-gloss black trim and chrome on the switches on the interior bring new life to the already stunning 2 Series on the interior heading into 2018.

Trim Differences

The BMW 2 Series of cars comes available in two basic models: the 230i and the M240i models. Both basic models in the 2 Series offer further customization with both being offered in coupe or convertible options. On top of that, both lines of cars are offered in sport, luxury or M sport body designs to suit the needs of the owner. The third option that each of the basic models offers to consumers is the addition of the xDrive option. The xDrive packages on the 230i and M240i models add a sport exhaust system, wheel-mounted paddle shifters and launch control on the automatic transmissions, making this added package an even greater experience from behind the wheel.

The 230i models give drivers the ultimate experience behind the wheel with Servotronic power-steering assist, dynamic stability control, gas-pressurized shock absorbers and spring and strut-type front suspension. The outside of the 230i shines with 17" bi-colored alloy wheels, LED headlights and fog lights, chrome-line exterior trim and a sport style grille. The interior features 10-way power front seats, SensaTec upholstery, floor mats and a high-gloss black trim with chrome accents. A premium sound system with seven speakers and a 205-watt amplifier boost the listening experience with HD Radio. An onboard iDrive system includes a computer, 6.5" screen with a controller and programmable memory buttons. A rear-view camera is also available to the driver.
