Should I Buy the 2021 BMW 2 Series?
As BMW’s lineup expands and becomes more technologically complex, the 2 Series coupe and convertible offer the well-balanced, sporty driving experience upon which the brand built its reputation. The 2 Series also has a surprising amount of interior and trunk room for its size. The Gran Coupe, however, uses a front-wheel-drive platform, and the car’s driving experience doesn’t measure up to BMW standards.
I recently bought a new car from BMW of Bridgeport. My convertible is both a high performance car but a beautiful car as well. I'm very happy with it. Read full review
