By CARSIFU | 30 January 2015

MUNICH: The BMW 2-Series gets a new stablemate with the introduction of a drop-top version, while the German marque’s X5 M and X6 M gets dressed in M Performance parts.

After the introduction of the 1-Series convertible and 130,000 units sold worldwide, BMW will now be using the 2-Series as the successor to the company’s most popular open-top premium model in this vehicle class.

BMW’s entry into the premium compact segment first saw the introduction of the 1-Series and then decided to seal off the two rear doors, stretched it a little more and slapped a 2 Series badge on it.

The German marque says that its 2-Series convertible will have its market launch beginning in February and the variants included will be the BMW M235i, M235i xDrive, 218i, 225d, 220d and 218d.

Boot space in the 2-Series convertible stands at 335 litres or 280 litres in open-top mode.

The powered fabric top takes 20sec to complete its operation at the push of a button – even at speeds of up to 50kph, and comes standard in Black with the option of having it in either Anthracite or Brown with silver effect.

Additionally, depending on the variant, the 2-Series has access to personalisation options via Advantage, Luxury Line, Sport Line and M Sport options, which provides specific exterior, interior and equipment features.

As for BMW’s X5 M and X6 M, the two bruisers from Munich also get access to the M Performance Parts bin that help owners individualise their ride, which includes radiator and side grille ornamental trim with black slats, black frame and M logo.

Furthermore, the handmade carbon fibre caps for the side mirrors are available, along with BMW’s motorsport signature M colours of blue, purple and red stripes for the sides.

Specifically for the X6 M, this SAV can be ordered with high-gloss black rear fins for better aerodynamics,

Inside, battery operated LED-integrated stainless steel door-sill plates with illuminated M Performance lettering is an option, as well as carbon interior trim strips and those bearing the M logo for the eight-speed M Steptronic gearbox selector lever.
