The most emotive, classy and agile car in its segment
Beirut, Lebanon – Bassoul-Heneine sal, the official BMW Group importer in Lebanon, has announced the arrival of the most emotive, classy and agile car in its segment – the BMW 2 Series Convertible. Taking driving pleasure into a new dimension for a drop-top model in this class, the four-seater is the successor to the BMW 1 Series Convertible and builds on the strengths of the most successful premium car in its class.
The third car in the all-new BMW 2 Series line-up, the Convertible joins the Coupé and Active Tourer models at the importer’s showrooms in Sed El Bauchrieh and Ain El Mreisseh.
With its overall dimensions increased over those of its predecessor, the BMW 2 Series Convertible combines the sporting and athletic shape of the BMW 2 Series with the elegance and aesthetics of an open-top BMW.
Commenting on the arrival of the BMW 2 Series Convertible, said Mr. Nagy Heneine, General Manager for Commercial Affairs at Bassoul-Heneine sal, said: “The BMW 2 Series Convertible has been hotly anticipated by customers here in Lebanon ever since the Coupé arrived in 2014. With even more grace, athleticism and sharpness about its design, clear advances in terms of performance as well as efficiency, and improvements in the driving comfort, functionality and innovative equipment features it offers, the BMW 2 Series Convertible takes the qualities displayed by its predecessor, the BMW 1 Series, to a whole new level. I have no doubt that it will be a popular model with our customers”
Eye-catching, graceful design and a low waistline, which emphasises the car’s “boat deck” character with the roof down, serve up a distinctive appearance and a refreshing brand of open-air driving pleasure. The electrically operated soft-top roof can be opened or closed in 20 seconds when travelling at a speed up to 50 km/h. A new folding mechanism and revised headliner ensure a considerably more elegant, high-quality look from inside and out. Noise insulation has also been significantly improved.
The BMW 2 Series Convertible also offers innovative equipment features as well as increased space, comfort and functionality and a more premium character for the interior; a combination of contemporary aesthetics and sportiness with convertible-specific functionality, high-quality materials and exceptional workmanship. In addition to a multitude of BMW ConnectedDrive features, the BMW 2 Series Convertible includes an exclusive new addition – it is the first model to offer the new-generation Navigation System Professional, which allows navigation data to be updated “over the air” via the embedded SIM card.
The BMW 2 Series Convertible will be available on launch with a choice of three engine variants, all members of the latest BMW Efficient Dynamics generation and with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology. The BMW 220i Convertible 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine has an output of 184 hp and top speed of 231 km/h. Meanwhile, the BMW 228i Convertible 2.0 litre four-cylinder engine with 245 hp has a top speed of 250 km/h. The sportiest and most powerful model variant comes in the shape of the BMW M235i Convertible M Performance featuring a 3.0 litre BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo straight-six engine. With an output of 326 hp to deliver 0 to 100 km/h in just 5.2 seconds and a specially tuned M suspension, it delivers characteristic M dynamism and power.
