LA marks the first appearance of the new BMW 2-Series Convertible on North American soil. The 2-Series Convertible sticks with a soft-top which allows it to be stowed away or put back up in 20 seconds. The roof can also be put up or down up to 30 MPH. Like the 2-Series Coupe, the Convertible comes available with either a turbocharged 2.0L four producing 240 horsepower or a turbocharged 3.0L inline-six with 320 horsepower. The four-cylinder comes with an eight-speed automatic only, but features the option of BMW's xDrive all-wheel drive. The inline-six gets the choice of either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic. Pricing for the new 2-Series Convertible starts at $38,850 for the base 228i.
