BMW 2 Series Convertible vs Ford Mustang Convertible
Both muscle cars in spirit, the Ford Mustang has little of any significance when it takes on the German’s BMW 230i. The latter basically thrashes the Mustang on every field, irrespective of the fact its powertrain churns out higher output or how quick it is as in the real world the Beemer is far smoother and responsive. Ride quality on the Mustang is comfortable but the Beemer has excellent balance between comfort and sport. Premium interior quality also triumphs over the Mustang alongside wider tech availability.
Now all the Beemer’s superiority comes at a hefty cost, around 15 grand more than the Mustang. Are all those improvements worth it? Well, at a budget, you should reconsider your options if Mustang is on your list.
BMW 2 Series Convertible vs Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
The Chevrolet Camaro has a mightier powertrain than the BMW 230i but the Bavarian is no less a match in behaving like a maniac. Granted, the American muscle just has that look you’d wish exorcising whereas the Beemer has greater amount of restrained aesthetic yet is deadly on the inside. Both the convertibles face one major flaw – cramped rear seating due to its size and sloping roofline.
Costing a bit more premium than the Chevrolet, that extra cost results in better fuel efficiency, superior cabin material and tech, abundant safety and reliability features, and ahead in terms of practicality. Composed driving with permission to berserk any moment is the Beemer’s forte here while the Camaro is comfortable in itself but not up to the German’s standard. Standing atop the pedestal should be the BMW, and that is only if the 10 grand extra won’t pinch you. Sensibly, you wouldn’t really want to drive a Herculean muscle car if you really were sensible.
BMW 2 series Convertible vs Mercedes C-Class Cabriolet
These Germans have got so much going on inside and outside the car, it becomes a bit too difficult certain times which one’s better than the other. They stand toe-to-toe in few aspects, while trail amongst the rest. Getting out the differences, the BMW 230i has a superior power and frugal powertrain, is commodious, drives sportingly and better tech.
While the Mercedes C300 and BMW 230i ride smooth and are both comfortable, you’d have to wonder – comfort and performance or comfort and laid back driving? Oh, and also the Beemer costs a grand less than the silver arrow. We’re leaning towards the spirited driving and plush ride.
