New 2 Series and 4 Series Convertibles Spotted Testing [Video]
Two prototypes have been spotted testing on the Nurburgring in recent days, one for the new F23 2 Series and the other for the F33 4 Series, both convertibles. They both have 3-liter N55 engines and both have clearly been touched by the M division in some way.
However, the 2 Series is simpler, smaller and cheaper. It's the cheeseburger of the BMW range, with a simple fabric roof and a short wheelbase. It's going to be the go-to car for younger buyers who want a convertible but don't need rear passenger space.
The 4 Series convertible on the other hand features a complicated folding metal roof, which offers better soundproofing and weatherproofing. It's wider and longer than the outgoing 3 Series convertible, ideal for longer journeys.
Both will be available with a range of 4- and 6-cylinder engines, manual or automatic, RWD or xDrive and a host of cosmetic packages.
