The 228i may be the cheapest car in the BMW lineup, but itís also one of the most authentic. Itís the one that reminds us of older BMWs rather than newer niche vehicles like the X4 and four-door ďcoupes.Ē
Replacing the old 1 Series, the 2 Series is about three inches longer, more than an inch wider and features a wheelbase that is 1.3 inches longer. It also looks better than the oddly proportioned 1 thanks to smoother lines. The complete look is less busy than any other BMWs or even the Mercedes CLA: the 228iís main competitor.
But while itís clear that the Mercedes CLA is for customers looking to buy a badge, the 2 Series actually delivers on what its brand stands for. This is a no-frills BMW coupe, one that looks back to the BMW heritage of fun, engaging, rear-wheel drive cars that get the basics right.
