The BMW 2 Series is a fun and stylish alternative to the likes of the Audi A3 saloon and the Mercedes A-Class hatchback.
The 218i’s interior is sensibly laid out and everything’s easy to use and there’s plenty of head and legroom in the front seats for you to get comfortable if you’re very tall while there's a generous amount of head and legroom in the back.
The 218i petrol is ideally suited to pottering around town. The drive is rather smooth - you won’t hear too much wind or tyre noise in the 2 Series at motorway speeds and the standard suspension does a good job ironing out bumps and potholes. Its direct steering and responsive handling will put a much bigger smile on your face on a winding country road than the Audi A3 saloon or Mercedes A-Class.
That being said, if you’re looking for a comfortable compact coupe that’s very good fun to drive and relatively cheap to run, the BMW 2 Series makes a very good choice indeed.
