BMW is throwing the automotive world for a loop in the coming years as a few of their models will be getting name changes to make room for a denser lineup. We already know the future 3-Series Coupe and Convertible will be sold as a 4-Series and now the future generation 1-Series Coupe and Convertible will also be getting a name change: They will adopt the 2-Series nomenclature. The future 2-Series Coupe has already been rendered so it was high time for us to get the 2-Series Convertible a little attention.
The BMW 2-Series Convertible will arrive a few months after its coupe brother and will be sportier than the current 1-Series. Under the hood, there will only be four-cylinder engines: a 2.0 petrol with either 150 HP, 177 HP, or 218 HP and a 2.0 turbodiesel with 214 HP. These engines will be combined with either a six-speed manual transmission or an optional eight-speed automatic transmission. An xDrive system will also be offered to make the car even more fuel efficient.
Expect to see the new BMW 2-Series Convertible launched in late 2013.
