BMW 2 Series Leasing
The 2 Series; A Punchy Small Coupe
BMW’s serious-looking 2 Series is a step in the direction of thrilling danger, away from the 1 Series. Rear-wheel drive and still a compact car, the 2 Series offers engines familiar to small BMW drivers, with focus on turbocharge and most of the UK models fitted with three- or four-cylinder engines. Recent updates to the 2 Series include sharper styling on the exterior, plus new tech kit including standard LED headlights and improved connectivity options.
Small Coupe Design
The BMW 2 Series could arguably be said to be the older brother of the 1 Series. Adding more muscular tone into the bodywork and a keener eye around the headlights, the 2 has an air of eager independence about its looks. The cabin offers a sense of belonging to seasoned BMW drivers, also adding in some helpful upgrades. The dash mirrors that of the 1 Series, and comes with a newly designed instrument cluster and better quality materials than in earlier models. Adjustability of the steering wheel and seats offers helpful adaptability, and there is space for four people inside. Each model is given an iDrive controller and sat-nav on a 6.5” display.
Varied Number of Trim Levels
Drivers choose their weapon from a selection of four: the SE, Sport, M Sport, and mighty M240i.
SE: a very generous starting base from BMW, the 2 Series SE is bestowed with 17” alloy wheels, air conditioning, an iDrive infotainment system and sat-nav on a 6.5” screen, DAB radio, bluetooth, LED headlights, parking sensors in the rear and automatic lights and wipers.
Sport: there’s something harder about the Sport, with its juiced-up styling inside and out. Details include an alternative 17” alloy wheel design, ambient lighting, and sport-styled steering wheel and sports seats.
M Sport: the M of M Sport comes with added 18” alloy wheels, a dedicated M Sport braking system, sports suspension, an upgraded sound system, and trim in half-cloth, half-leather.
M240i: taking all that is great about the 2 Series and adding on a boosted performance, the M240i delivers a 335bhp twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre petrol engine on top.
A Fun to Drive, Great Handling Car
The standard line-up on the 2 Series includes engines of 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0 litres, with three, four, and six cylinders. There’s also a 2.0-litre diesel. All are turbocharged, and come with a manual or eight-speed automatic gearbox. The steering and handling of the 2 Series ranks amongst the best of its class, delivering accuracy and a snappy response.
- Standard engine size: 2.0-litre diesel
- 0-62mph: 8.50 seconds
- MPG: 61.4
Alternative BMW Leasing Deals
Excellent, clear and responsive service. Everything John told me was accurate and couldn't be happier with the aftercare.
This is the second time that I’ve used Vantage for my personal lease, and they pulled a fantastic deal out of the bag once again. I had a wide range of vehicles to chose from, and the sales specialist fully understood my individual circumstances and matched me to the perfect vehicle. Paperwork was completed from home with no issues, and delivery was quick and hassle-free. I’d definitely recommend Vantage to anyone looking for a cost-effective, convenient and above all professional service.
Vantage Leasing were great from start to finish. Unfortunately my previous Evoque was stolen in December 2021 and I was searching for a replacement immediately. I stumbled across Vantage Leasing whilst obtaining quotes, and I was dealing with John Livesley who was fantastic. John's communication and efficient service made Vantage stand out from the rest, he always responded on the same day and kept me in the loop at all stages. John's knowledge of the car industry is second to none - he was always upfront and honest with me about any potential delays or issues, and he managed to find me a 22 plate Evoque around 12 months faster than other companies could! I would recommend Vantage to everyone, there were no tricks or fibs like I had experienced when obtaining quotes from other companies, just honesty and transparency. I'm now back in my dream car already thanks to John.
i though the service was very professional with a touch of care to there customers. we delt with a guy called John Livesley and he was really good and went and got what we needed with no head aches at all. with his knowledge of cars and the industry he made this a seamless experience
