Thank you to our personal lease customer, from Woodford Green (Essex), for sending through pictures of their new car – the BMW 2 Series Coupe.
The 2 series has become one of the more popular small coupe options, as customers now move towards prestige German brands. With little competition from VW or Mercedes, even Audi and BMW have a quality, but affordable, product which is available to the general populous. In our recent 2 series leasing deals, we have seen higher mileage customers take the 218d and 220d options whereas those covering low mileages are content with the 218i, or, if they need something a little bit more punchy – the M240i!
Gone are the days where customers are priced out of the premium brands; many 2 series customers are paying a similar monthly rental to what they could expect from a Ford, Vauxhall or Peugeot equivalent.
In terms of the car shown here, the BMW 2 SERIES COUPE 218i M Sport 2dr [Nav] Manual Petrol, this is based on the configuration below:
· Sapphire Black Metallic Paint
· Hexagon Cloth/Alcantara – Anthracite/Blue
· Aluminium hexagon interior trim with estoril blue finish
· 18″ light alloy wheels – M Double spoke style 461M in ferric grey
As standard the car includes rear parking distance control, BMW navigation, 60/40 split folding seats, front sports seats, 18” alloy wheels, M Sport suspension, LED headlights, air conditioning, intermittent wipers, green tinted glazing, rain sensor with automatic headlight activation, ADB, brake energy regeneration, hill start assist, DTC, velour mats, auto start stop, electrically adjustable and heated mirrors, DAB radio, chrome kidney grille, automatic headlights, LED rear lights, LED welcome home lights, multifunction nappa leather wheel welcome lighting, warning triangle and first aid kit, Thatcham category 1 alarm and immobiliser. As for additional factory options consider – sun protection glass, front parking distance control and BMW advanced loudspeaker system.
In terms of technical info, company car and business users can note the P11d at £28,540.00 and CO2 at 140g/km. The 1499CC 6 speed petrol engine delivers 45.6 combined MPG (EC rules), 37.2 MPG (WLTP), 136ps and 0-62 times of 8.8 seconds. Service intervals on a petrol 2 series are every 24 months or 18,000 miles, whichever lands sooner.
So would the 2 Series be your select leasing option or might the VW Scirocco, Vauxhall GTC, Infinity Q60 or Toyota GT86 be more your kind of coupe…
