Introducing the newest, and one of the most seductive, additions to the BMW lineup, the 2014 BMW 228i Coupe. An alluring exterior design highlights its sporting prowess, muscular agility, and most importantly, makes it stand out from its rivals. Once you take the wheel in its driver-focused cockpit, you’ll experience what one can only describe as pure euphoria.
The all-new 2014 BMW 2 Series embodies this less-is-more trend, as it’s the smallest coupe in BMW’s 2014 lineup. There are two trim levels: 228i and M235i. The 228i comes equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, rain-sensing wipers, cruise control, automatic dual-zone climate control, leatherette (premium vinyl) upholstery, a tilt-and-telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel with paddle shifters, eight-way manual front seats, and a 60/40-split-folding rear seat. The standard electronics array includes Bluetooth phone connectivity, BMW’s iDrive infotainment interface with a 6.5-inch display and a 10-speaker sound system with a CD player, HD radio, a USB/iPod interface and an auxiliary audio jack.
The rear-wheel-drive 2014 BMW 2 Series offers a choice of two engines. An eight speed automatic transmission is standard with both, while a six speed manual is a no-cost option. The base BMW 228i has a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 240 hp and 255 pound-feet of torque. EPA-estimated fuel economy for the 228i with the automatic transmission is 28 mpg combined (23 city/36 highway).
