In this review, we are going to take a closer look at the BMW 2 Series. We will examine the details about the BMW 2 Series under three main categories such as The Features of the BMW 2 Series, The Fuel Consumption of the BMW 2 Series and Basic Characteristics of BMW 2 Series. These categories prepared for explaining the vehicle from any perspective. Before beginning the review, I would like to share some general information about the history of the BMW 2 Series. The 2 Series is a Subcompact Executive car manufactured by the German automaker BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke AG) since 2013. BMW first introduced the 2 Series to the public at the 2014 North American Auto Show and in the following years the new generation was presented to the public at the 2019 LA Auto Show. The new generation 2 Series, called the F44, is assembled at BMW's Leipzig factory in Germany.
The Features of the BMW 2 Series
In this part of the review, we are going to focus on the features of the BMW 2 Series. We can start with the exterior design of the BMW 2 Series. When we look at the exterior design of the car, we can say that it looks much more powerful and sporty than the previous generation. The car, which has grown considerably with the new generation in terms of design, now looks like an ambitious sedan rather than an intermediate model. The iconic BMW kidney grille at the front has grown considerably with the new generation. When looking at the rear, the taillights have designed in a much narrower and sporty way. We can say that this is an aesthetically positive move. Also, the sharp lines on the body reflect the characteristic feature of the car very successfully. Now, we are moving on to the interior design of the BMW 2 Series. When we look at the interior design of the BMW 2 Series, unfortunately, we cannot see too many radical details. The standard design lines used by BMW, in general, are also valid in this vehicle. A very sporty steering wheel stands out as the first striking point. While the ambient lighting brings the cabin atmosphere of the car to a different point, the minimal layout of the control mechanisms on the centre console looks very aesthetic. As always, the multimedia screen is in the middle. The digital instrument panel, on the other hand, allows the driver to focus on the road and ensure a safe driving experience. Apart from this, the 2 series is highly competent in the field of technology compared to the cars in its class with many technological features such as the voice control system.
The Fuel Consumption of the BMW 2 Series
Now, we are going to focus on the fuel consumption of the BMW 2 Series. We usually work on popular engine types and making analyses on them by checking details for an efficient fuel consumption analysis. While choosing the right car, you need specific and simple information. That is why we are using this distinction method to make things easier for you. We use two main categories to make a useful distinction such as The Most Economical One and The Most Powerful One. BMW 2 Series has got four standard engine varieties such as 2.18d, 2.18i, 2.20d and M235i. We are going to analyse two of them as the most economical and the most powerful one. We can start with the most economical one which is 2.18d. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1995 cm3 size. It is using a Diesel feed fuel system so we can say that it is a Diesel type engine. It can produce 150 HP and 4000 RPM Torque. According to the official factory data, 2.18d has got a 5,0lt/100km (which refers to 56 MPG in the UK) mpg performance in Urban usage. However, this fuel consumption rate decreasing to 3,0lt/100km (which refers to 94 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage such as Highways or Long-Distance Trip. When we combine these mpg data, we get a 4,0lt/100km (which refers to 71 MPG in the UK) average mpg performance. Now we will focus on the most powerful engine, which is M235i. It has got a four cylindered engine structure with a 1998 cm3 size. It is a Petrol Type Engine which produces 306 Horsepower and 5000 RPM Torque. M235i has got an 8,0lt/100km (which refers to 35 MPG in the UK) fuel consumption in Urban usage. On the other hand, this MPG rate decreasing to 5,0lt/100km (which refers to 56 MPG in the UK) in Extra Urban usage. When we gather these two fuel consumption data, we get a 6,0lt/100km (which refers to 47 MPG in the UK) average fuel consumption data.
