2016 BMW 2 Series Driving Impressions


Acceleration is brisk with the 228i, and fast with the M235i; zero to 60 in 5.4 seconds and 4.8 seconds, respectively. And AWD is actually quicker, despite its weight, because it gets away from zero with better traction.

The handling is more engaging than a base BMW 3 Series or 4 Series, and that’s a great compliment for any car. The 2 Series is in its element, during quick changes of direction and even hard braking. We credit the M Sport suspension that’s standard equipment. Meanwhile, the ride is as supple as it needs to be.

Or, you can trade some of that supple ride for more performance, with the ZTR package, for the track, available with either rear-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive 228i models. It adds adaptive M suspension, variable sport steering, M Sport Brakes, Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires, 18-inch wheels, and revised springs that reduce ride height by 10 mm.
