2015 BMW 2-Series Review
Bavarian Motor Works has done it again, rolling out thier 2015 2-Series to the showroom floor last week at the North American International Auto Show. This stylish new bimmer has a new front end, larger air intakes and wider rear fenders.
Keeping its heritage as a powerful rear-wheel-drive compact coupe with manual transmission, you can expect a powertrain of twin-turbo N54 3.0-liter with a thundering 240 horses or single-turbo N55 3.0-liter engines both with six cylinders, with an HP output upwards of 360. The engines will be paired with the six-speed manual transmission with a seven-speed dual clutch automatic transmission option. On the road you'll be governed at a brisk 155 mph, but on the track, top speeds are suggested to reach 180 mph. Zero to sixty, you'll be there in about 4.5 seconds or less. For those of you sporting the 4-cylinder model, the car is rumored to output 184 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque.
The 2-Series is said to be a major upgrade from the original BMW 1-Series, with huge improvements in steering and handling, as well as the comfort and sport of its updated cabin. We can expect the 2-Series in dealerships late 2014 with an anticipated $45,000 price tag.
