BMW EfficientDynamics technology.

The innovative new generation BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol and diesel engines from the BMW EfficientDynamics engine family boast remarkably agile performance and excellent responsiveness, even at low rpms. At the same time they are incredibly efficient, with fewer emissions and lower fuel consumption, guaranteeing maximum driving pleasure.
The petrol engines feature innovative turbocharger technology, completely variable Valvetronic valve control including Double-VANOS variable camshaft control and High Precision Injection. Together, this sophisticated combination of components provides tremendous power delivery and improved efficiency. The diesel engines also feature turbochargers with variable turbine geometry and the newest generation of CommonRail direct injection. Optimised combustion further contributes to lower fuel consumption and emissions.

Dynamic drive system.

High performance, low consumption – those are the goals behind the dynamic drive system in the BMW 2 Series Convertible. Sophisticated TwinPower Turbo petrol and diesel engines from the BMW EfficientDynamics engine family have won the “Engine of the Year Award” several times. They continue to impress combining low emissions, smooth running, outstanding dynamics and, thanks to the eight-speed Steptronic transmission, breathtaking, virtually interruption-free acceleration.
  • The latest generation BMW TwinPower Turbo petrol engines feature remarkably agile power delivery and excellent responsiveness, even at low engine speeds. At the same time they are far more efficient, with fewer emissions and better performance than their predecessors. These innovative engines combine the latest fuel injection technology and fully variable valve control including Double-VANOS with state-of-the-art turbocharger engineering, representing a milestone in the BMW EfficientDynamics development strategy. The result is a particularly efficient drive train, emphasising the renowned BMW engine prowess. The BMW TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder petrol engine has been awarded many times with the “Engine of the Year Award”, bolstering its worldwide reputation for dynamic power delivery, extremely smooth running characteristics and overall efficiency. The engines from the BMW EfficientDynamics range feature a technology concept that has proven highly successful and is implemented in nearly all petrol engines.
  • The new generation of BMW TwinPower Turbo diesel engines is testament to the rigorous application of the BMW EfficientDynamics philosophy, combining top marks in power generation and performance with low fuel consumption.  The diesel engines are notable for their excellent responsiveness and agile power delivery at all engine speeds, as well as for their low fuel consumption. They are renowned for their outstanding efficiency and dynamics, producing fewer emissions and friction in order to guarantee maximum driving pleasure. The new diesel engines in the BMW EfficientDynamics range feature lightweight aluminium construction and one, two or three turbochargers with variable turbine geometry. They also come with the very latest CommonRail direct injection, which guarantees optimum combustion to further reduce fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
  • The eight-speed Steptronic transmission sets new standards in comfort and dynamic performance and is a key element of BMW EfficientDynamics. The unusually fine increments between gears facilitate optimum power delivery at all speeds. This reduces fuel consumption significantly, while allowing the driver to enjoy increased sportiness and dynamic performance. The engine speed is reduced, particularly at high speeds, which in turn reduces both fuel consumption and engine noise. The converter clutch also helps – even if the car is changed to the manual mode. In combination with the fast engine speed transitions and the precise transmission tuning, it provides very smooth gear changes and reduces noise considerably.
    The fast engine speed transitions and precise transmission tuning guarantee incredibly smooth gear shifting. Integrated functions such as predictive drivetrain, driver recognition and the constant monitoring of the vehicle's movements and the traffic situation considerably affect the way the transmission shifts gears. Regardless of the current driving mode, the system always selects the most suitable gear – even in manual. Want even more dynamic driving? In Sport mode, more responsive engine settings and a series of integrated functions that use data from the navigation system further boost the dynamics. Want to cruise? The Comfort mode has more comfort-oriented transmission settings and ensures fewer gear shifts.

ECO PRO mode.

Depending on driving style, ECO PRO mode can help reduce fuel consumption by up to 20 percent, according to an internal BMW fuel consumption study. And the route-ahead assistant makes it possible to save a further five percent.
The coasting function (only available in conjunction with eight-speed Steptronic transmission) decouples the drive train from the engine and the vehicle rolls (or "coasts") without any propulsion when the driver takes the foot from the gas at speeds of between 50 and 160 km/h, does not apply the brakes, and the route-ahead assistant does not adjust the speed.
Based on data from the navigation system, the route-ahead assistant (only available in conjunction with Professional Navigation System) recognises curves, built-up areas, speed limits and motorway exits, and gives the driver tips in advance about when to stop accelerating.
ECO PRO route (only available in conjunction with Professional Navigation System or Business Navigation System) calculates the most efficient route based on the traffic situation, driving style and road conditions. The on-board computer displays the percentage of fuel that can be saved by driving along the route selected by ECO PRO route.


Confident, energetic and sporty through and through. One touch of the start button is all it takes to experience the strength that lies behind the self-assured appearance of the BMW 2 Series Convertible. Its performance, perfect 50:50 weight distribution and subsequent agile handling are unique in its vehicle class – and are realised to perfection in the form of the BMW M235i.
  • When the turbocharged 326 hp inline six-cylinder petrol engine rouses the powerful side of the BMW 2 Series Convertible into action, driving pleasure is guaranteed. Motorsport technologies such as the Adaptive M Suspension, the M brakes and the M aerodynamics package turn the BMW 2 Series Convertible into a robust, athletic machine. M wheels, the M leather steering wheel, sport seats and the specially attuned sport steering round off this dashing figure. It’s clear for all to see: This convertible is at one with the wind.
  • The BMW 2 Series Convertible glides majestically across the asphalt – whatever the weather. Thanks to BMW rear-wheel drive technology, Drive Performance Control and Variable Sport Steering as well as 50:50 weight distribution that is unique in its class, it never fails to impress with exceptional agility, top-class manoeuvrability and ultra-precise handling.
  • The ideal suspension for even more dynamic handling, the electronically controlled dampers in the Adaptive M Suspension adapt to suit the driving style and road conditions. The driver can modify the damper characteristics using the Drive Performance Control. The suspension has also been lowered by 10 mm, which increases agility even further. A noticeably firmer damper setting is activated when the Sport mode is selected via the Drive Performance Control. In Sport+ mode, the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is replaced by the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), which allows for even more dynamic driving by permitting more flexibility before the DSC kicks in.
  • Here’s a feature destined to delight drivers with extra dynamic, sporty ambitions. Launch Control is a function included in the eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission that enables maximum acceleration from a standing started. Just activate DTC (Dynamic Traction Control) by briefly pushing the DSC button (Dynamic Stability Control), move the gear lever to the “S” position, firmly hold down the brake and press the accelerator pedal to kickdown. Release the brake while maintaining kickdown and the vehicle will accelerate to the maximum until the accelerator is released. Excitement guaranteed.
