BMW 228i: Compact Style with Refined Elegance
The luxury vehicle segment has recognized the increasingly popular compact design trends. And for BMW, the end result is the BMW 228i. This car represents style, opulence, and class in a smaller and more manageable size. Although the exterior may be considered compact, the interior space and cargo capacity are generous; and most importantly the 228i does not compromise performance.
Anyone looking for excitement on the road will appreciate the BMW 228i. The car is estimated to go from 0 to 60 mph in 5.4 seconds and reach top speeds of 130 mph - not too shabby for a 2 Series. The base 228i coupe comes with a strong turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This makes fuel economy attractive, especially for avid travelers. With the eight-speed automatic transmission, it is easy to achieve 23/26 mpg while on the move. Besides the practicality, it will be nice to feel the power of 240 horsepower at 6,500 rpms.
Thanks to the ideal 50/50 weight distribution, performance is amazing. Come around any corner with confidence and never worry about stopping with the legendary M Sport brakes. The vehicle will come to a standstill from 60 mph in 111 feet.
The 228i comes standard with automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers, cruise control, automatic dual-zone climate control, and numerous technological features. Nothing is more convenient than the Bluetooth connectivity. There is also a 10-speaker sound system and BMW's iDrive infotainment interface with an easy-to-read 6.5 inch display. Although the exterior of the 228i will turn heads, the interior is designed to be simple with high-end materials and user friendly controls. Drivers of all heights will appreciate the adjustable eight position seat. Trunk capacity is generous at 13.8 cubic feet, and the rear seats can be folded for even more room.
Safety is a top concern for BMW, so the manufacturer has gone to great lengths to provide as much standard equipment as possible. Each vehicle comes with stability and traction control, four-wheel antilock brakes, and numerous airbags. For access to help at all times, the 228i includes a 10-year subscription to BMW's Assist eCall with Emergency Request and Automatic Collision Notification. All of these features will provide peace of mind during any trip.
This vehicle is perfect for anyone who enjoys the finer things in life and likes being surrounded by luxury. Its performance is extremely impressive, and the comfortable interior will attract the avid traveler. The 228i continues the legacy of what BMW does best, which is creating sporty and appealing cars.
