KBB Expert Review

KBB Editors' Overview

By Zach Vlasuk - Updated Date: 3/13/2014


A spiritual successor to BMW's legendary 2002 coupe, the all-new 2 Series is a fresh face in the burgeoning field of entry-level luxury cars.

Taking the place last year's 1 Series line, the 2014 BMW 2 Series embodies a more sophisticated demeanor while holding true to BMW's established brand pillars of safety, efficiency, and dynamism without compromise. The standard 228i strikes a satisfying balance between handling prowess and price, while the sport-oriented M 235i crams big performance numbers into a compact package. Until the next-generation 1 Series sedan arrives sometime in 2017, direct competition for the BMW 2 Series consists of similarly-sized 4-door rivals like the well-rounded Audi A3, stylish Mercedes-Benz CLA, and value-driven Acura ILX.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you're in the market for an agile handling, premium sports coupe with striking good looks and efficient performance, the 2014 BMW 2 Series deserves a test drive. The upscale nature of 2 Series also makes it a viable alternative to current 4 Series shoppers who would gladly sacrifice some interior space for a near-$10,000 savings.

You May Not Like This Car If...

The Audi A3 and Acura ILX offer the flexibility of four doors as well as seating for five. In addition, comparably-equipped versions of the A3, ILX and CLA 250 undercut the 2 Series by a few thousand dollars.

What's New for 2014

The 2014 BMW 2 Series is 4-seat, 2-door coupe and an all-new nameplate for the U.S. market.

Driving It Driving Impressions

As the only rear-drive car in its class, it should come as little surprise that the BMW 2 Series coupe reigns supreme in the fun-to-drive department.

This spirited driving experience isn't reserved exclusively for the range-topping M 235i either, as the 240-horsepower 228i and its available 6-speed manual gearbox are more than capable of giving dedicated sports cars a run for their money. The combination of tidy dimensions and a tight turning circle make the 2 Series easy to park and maneuver as well. At highway speeds, the cabin is less immune to wind noise than the Audi A3 and Mercedes-Benz CLA, though neither of which can match the BMW when it comes to stability and overall ride compliance. Despite the fact that 228i models fitted with an automatic transmission earn an EPA-estimated 36 mpg highway rating, we managed to exceed that figure by nearly four marks in real world testing. This places the 2014 228i on the same efficiency plane as the less-powerful CLA 250.

BMW APPS
With BMW Apps, iPhone users can browse their Twitter and Facebook feeds as well as listen to streaming music services like Pandora, MOG and TuneIn Radio all through the optional navigation system display.

PARKING ASSISTANT
It's no secret that parallel parking is one of the most frustrating aspects of driving. Thankfully, the BMW 2 Series offers a feature called Parking Assistant that can seek out available parking spaces and automatically steer the coupe into a designated spot. Next stop: fully autonomous driving.
