BMW has unveiled the all-new M235i Convertible which blends the dynamic driving character of the 2 Series Coupe with the open-air pleasure of a folding soft-top.

The 2015 2 Series Convertible will be available in the US as the M235i, 228i as well as the 228i xDrive. Other parts of the world will also receive the 220i and the diesel-powered 220d.

As the first open-top M Performance Automobile, the M235i Convertible has all the elements to maximize the performance potential of the 2 Series Convertible. Like the coupe, it features a higher-output M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline six, mated to either a standard 8-speed sport automatic or an optional six-speed manual transmission. Aerodynamically optimized body features and custom chassis components are matched with typical M precision to the engine performance characteristics, ensuring a perfect blend of agility and precise handle.

The all-new 2015 BMW M235i Convertible will make its North American debut at the 2014 Los Angeles International Auto Show and arrive in US showrooms in early 2015.

M235i Convertible's Exterior: Open-Top Sportiness and Elegance

Aerodynamically styled body parts, which include an M-style front apron, are a hallmark of the 2015 BMW M235i Convertible's design. The large air intakes in this apron, with flaps adapted from racing car design, extend into the area which on the other versions of the BMW 2 Series Convertible is reserved for the fog lamps. The exterior mirror caps are finished in Ferric Grey metallic. Further exterior design features include the striking side sill contouring and a rear apron whose lower section, in Shadowline metallic, also incorporates the twin tailpipes in black chrome.

Sports Car Flavor in Cockpit

The 2015 M235i Convertible features a specially "tuned" interior that features sports seats for the driver and front passenger, an M leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons, Aluminum Hexagon interior trim with accent strips in matt Estoril Blue or high-gloss black, leather trim for the gearshift lever/selector lever and handbrake lever gaiter, and an M driver's footrest.

The custom instrument cluster features red markings and numbers for the speedometer and tachometer, while the instrument cluster with extended features additionally has a digitally produced model designation. Rounding off the interior specifications of the BMW M235i Convertible are variable-color interior lighting and blue detailing for the car key.
