With a powerful engine package, and a sporty, sleek look that awakens our inner wanderlust, the 2016 BMW 2 Series coupe might just be your first step into the BMW lifestyle. And now you are able to find this new BMW model in all its incarnations at Auto West BMW in Richmond, British Columbia.
Gone is the BMW 1 Series. What has now taken its place in Canada is a BMW offering that is more fashionable, yet also more mature, dense with shining features and interior lavishness. This is a BMW not for the taking the whole family out on a road trip, but rather one for both the young and the young at heart. Your choice of 241 or 322 horsepower provides plenty of pump for passing on the highway, while the 2 Series' incredibly nimble and responsive size and handling lets you take it almost anywhere. Add to that a safety system that most larger cars would be envious of, and you have quite the bold offering coming from BMW's most affordable new vehicle. And new for 2016 is the 2 Series Cabriolet for a reimagining of what driving pleasure truly is.
If you want to buckle in behind the wheel of BMW's new 2016 2 Series, then please feel free to come on down to our dealership for a test drive. We're located just a convenient short distance away from the Metro Vancouver area, including Burnaby, White Rock, and North Vancouver, BC.
But for now, please read on to discover more about the 2016 2 Series.
Unlike the 3 Series and 5 Series, the 2016 BMW 2 Series limits its engine selection to a mere two. But what an exceptional two engines they are. Both operate within a 8-speed automatic transmission, but with optional 6-speed manual models at no cost difference. And new for 2016 is the option to order BMW's world-class xDrive AWD on either 2 Series model. The standard engine is a 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder that cranks out a more than reasonable 241 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. With BMW's new start-stop engine function, the engine temporarily shuts down to conserve fuel each time the car stops, allowing this base engine to boast a 33 miles per gallon fuel efficiency, or 7.5L/100km. But if you desire a sporty coupe, you might not be able to resist the 3.0L inline six-cylinder engine in the M235i model, that roars down roads with 320/330 hp-torque rating.
With the 2016 BMW 2 Series recently reining in a Top Safety Pick designation from the IIHS, it's only natural to want to learn more about what makes this new offering stand above its top competitors. Within the cabin, the driver and passenger are safely enveloped between front-seat side, full-length side curtain, and driver and passenger knee airbags. Advanced, self-refreshing ABS, stability and traction control, and the collision warning system that actively and automatically applies the brakes if something comes into the cars path are just some of the many safety features that BMW 2 Series buyers can look forward investing their safety into.
With multiple packages available, including the Luxury Line, Sport Line, and M Sport packages, as well as a ton of optional Original BMW Accessories, this Cabriolet is truly your own, customized to your personality. The M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine speeds up airstream to give you the kind of ride you'll get only from a high-calibre Cabriolet.
You might not always be trying to fit four adults into the 2016 BMW 2 Series coupe, but you'll be able to. Most likely, you'll use the back seat as extra storage space to complement the 13 cubic feet of trunk space in this compact, tightly wound spring of an automobile. What you can come to enjoy in this smooth ride, is an available 8.8-inch high resolution media screen, the hub spot of your 10-speaker stereo console, navigation system, Bluetooth audio connector, and more. And with BMW Remote Services, the technology apps continue to evolve, starting with keyless entry and remote climate control, and evolving to what? Who knows!
