The BMW 2 Series Convertible's small stature hides a treasure trove of fun and luxury. Aside from offering a feisty performance model in the M240i that produces 335 horsepower and 368 lb-ft of torque from a turbocharged inline-six, this is one of the most economical and luxurious convertibles in the US. Of course, owning a convertible isn't always rainbows and roses. The cabins can be slightly noisy, they cost far more than their fixed-roof counterparts and their handling abilities usually suffer because of the structural change. The 2 Series suffers minimally in these areas, though, and as a compact rear-wheel-drive drop-top (with AWD optional), it's a joy to pilot. With sales of compact coupes and convertibles dwindling, however, the soft-top 2 Series may have a limited future, and we may not see an all-new version when the next-gen 2 Series debuts for 2022. With no direct rivals, the 2er goes up against the Audi TT
Roadstar, vying for a spot in the hearts of open-air driving enthusiasts.
