Arriving in 2014

Ealier today we showed you first photos of the BMW 2-Series Coupe. Now the Convertible has been spied for the first time as well.

The 2-Series family will make its debut late next year when the Coupe will be introduced, followed in 2014 by the Convertible. The 2-Series will contain the coupe and cabriolet versions of the 1-Series hatchback, along with a potential GranCoupe version coming in the next few years.

A prototype of the 2-Series Convertible was spied by our photographers during some testing on public roads. It will look sportier than current 1-Series Cabrio and will be powered exclusively by 4-cylinder engines. The gasoline family will include a 2.0-liter offered with 150 hp (112 kW), 177 hp (132 kW) and 218 hp (163 kW). These will be joined by a 2.0-liter turbocharged diesel generating 214 hp (160 kW).

As standard, all power units will be mated to a six-speed manual gearbox or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission. BMW's xDrive AWD system will be offered.

Soo... what IS the premium nowadays by changeing the nomenclature on a type (1 becomes 2, 3 becomes 4)? The cars run from the same conveyor belt use the same components, mechanics, dash etc. But, pardon me: you, you, YOU are driving a higher up number (muted applause) What is it worth to you? A 15% premium over the previously available type? (More muted applause) Great marketing trick, with no, absolutely no extra cost to the manufacturer.

Looks like the head lamps are way better than the new 1-series
