But noticeably outgrew its predecessor, the BMW 1-Series convertible – by as much as 2.8″ in length, by 1″ in width, by 0.27″ in height, the distance between the axles became 1.1″ larger.

New Design With Removable Top

I think that does not make sense for a long time and effectively describe the appearance of auto news BMW 2-Series Convertible. First, the official photos and video materials presented in the review, fully reveal the stylish appearance of the Bavarian compact gig. And secondly, the exterior design of the open version of the 2-series from BMW exactly repeats the exterior design of the hardtop version of the BMW 2-series coupe.

… But of course, one very big difference – it is a convertible design and shape of the roof. No matter how the German designers and designers tried to create an attractive soft dome of the roof, but the coupe did not work out an ideal dome. It pleases the fact that with the roof stowed convertible BMW 2-Series looks amazing.
