BMW launched its third model in the 2 Series range yesterday, the 2 Series Convertible. Following in the footsteps of the Coupe model and replacing the E88 1 Series Convertible, this car is supposed to be the cheapest drop top you can get from the Germans, its pricing starting at $33,850 in the US.

The North American market will get the same two models as the Coupe: the entry-level 228i and the M235i. The 228i uses a 2-liter 4-cylinder turbocharged engine making 245 HP and 350 Nm (255 lb-ft) of torque and can be hooked up to a manual 6-speed or 8-speed automatic gearbox.

On the other hand, we have the M235i model fitted with the same 3-liter inline 6-cylinder engine making 326 HP and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque that can also be equipped with either a manual or an automatic gearbox.

The difference is that the 228i will be available with the xDrive all-wheel-drive system from the launch while the M235i will get it later on. However, the price you’ll have to pay for AWD on the 228i is pretty steep.

The rear-wheel drive 228i starts at $33,850 including destination and handling while the xDrive model will have a starting price of $40,650. Of course, for that premium you’ll also get plenty of standard kit. The M235i, on the other hand, starts at $48,650.

Compared to their Coupe alternatives you’ll be paying $800 more for the 228i droptop, $5,800 more for the 228i xDrive model and $4,600 more for the M235i. The 228i still remains the pick of the range.
