Just after the 2015 BMW 2-Series Convertible was launched, the German sports car manufacturer has unveiled the M Sport package for the car.
The M Sport package is available for all 2-Series Convertible variants excluding the M235i for now with the kit seeing the addition of tweaked bumpers up front and at the rear, as well as a new rear diffuser and modified side sills. Interior wise, Estoril Blue accents are present with the stitching and dash as well as a plethora of M badges.
Beyond the visual tweaks, the M Sport package sees the addition of tweaked suspension, chrome exhaust tips as well as 17-inch alloy wheels.
As a reminder, the 2015 BMW 2-Series Convertible is available in the same 220d, 220i, 228i, 228i xDrive and most importantly, M235i specifications as the coupe with all (except for the 220 variants) set to arrive in the U.S. next year. As a result, the convertible models remain essentially mechanically identical to the coupes.
As a result, the BMW 228i Convertible delivers 240 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque from its small turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder. Consequently, it can reach 96 km/h (60 mph) in a mere 5.7 seconds and comes standard with an eight-speed automatic gearbox. When equipped with the optional all-wheel drive system as the 228i xDrive, the 0-96 km/h sprint will drop to 5.6 seconds with 70 per cent of the power going to the rear and the remaining 30 per cent being sent through the front wheels.
As for the 2015 BMW M235i Convertible, it delivers an identical 320 hp and 330 lb-ft of torque to the coupe. Unlike the 228i Convertible models however, it is available with a six-speed manual transmission in addition to the eight-speed auto. With the latter transmission, it hits 96 km/h in just 4.8 seconds as well as an electronically limited top speed of 250 km/h. When ordered with the manual, that sprint time increases slightly to 5.0 seconds flat.
