2019 BMW 2 Series Convertible Spotted Testing with Minor Visual Updates. As we know, BMW is currently giving a mid-cycle update (or Life Cycle Impulse (LCI) in the company’s language) to BMW 2 Series, both the coupe and convertible body style. We have seen the spy shots of the coupe prototype, and we definitely like what we saw.
However, it seems like the Bavarian automaker is a little bit more secretive about the drop top model. While the prototype of the coupe has been spotted testing several times, this is the first time we get a glimpse of the 2 Series convertible. Thankfully, just like its coupe sibling, the convertible prototype is very lightly camouflaged so we can clearly see what kind of visual updates the drop top model will get.
2019 BMW 2 Series Convertible Specifications
From the 2019 BMW 2 Series Convertible spy pictures, we can see that the camouflage on the convertible hides the same spots with the coupe prototype we have seen earlier. It means, both body type will get similar visual updates. On the front, the cabriolet gets new headlights with a set of LED day time running lights. Furthermore, the kidney grille is also camouflaged and it seems like the grille is a lot smaller compared to the current model.
Moving to the rear, the updates become even more subtle. The only change we can notice on the back is the tail lights that gets new graphic. Other than that, everything looks just the same with the current mode. In terms of exterior design, the update is indeed very minor. But 2 Class is well-known for its elegant and pretty visual, so it’s not like it will need too many changes to attract new buyers.
The most interesting and noteworthy update actually goes to the cabin. It is not really clear from the spy shots, but according to the spy photographer, the dashboard is fully covered, hence we definitely can expect the most updates there. We don’t know what exactly the new elements are, but probably the convertible will get better infotainment system.
Other than that, let’s not expect something dramatic since the chance is high the interior will only get some small updates, just like the exterior. The same area is also covered in the coupe prototype so it is possible that both body styles will get the same new interior elements. In addition, it is also possible that numerous design lines will be provided and the customers are allowed to choose which one they prefer to have in their car.
Earlier this year, BMW has upgraded the engines for both 2 Series coupe and convertible. So let’s not expect any dramatic changes in the drivetrain department. However, some small tweaks are still possible. We don’t know what BMW has in store for the cabriolet, but it seems like it will receive the same treatment with the coupe.
2019 BMW 2 Series Convertible Release Date and price
Since the convertible only gets minor updates, it definitely won’t take long for the Bavarian automaker to wrap it up and ship it to the dealerships. It has yet to be confirmed, but it seems like the drop top 2-Series will go on sale this summer.
