The whole BMW 2-Series lineup will receive a series of little updates for 2018 that consists of brand-new wheels, and revised exterior and interior looks. This will include the entry-level BMW 230.
2018 BMW 230 Design
The 2018 BMW 230’s updates are will not be simple to spot, but a close look at it side by side with the current model will make them much easier to identify. They will include brand-new standard bi-LED headlights with flat-bottomed headlights tubes surrounded by daytime running light halos, standard LED taillights, 3 new color options, and brand-new 17-inch Double-Spoke Bi-Color wheels. The upgrading will make its method to the interior too, where BMW will add a redesigned and more driver-focused instrument panel, a high-gloss-black-finished center stack, covered cup holders in the center storage compartment, and revamped air conditioner vents.
Besides its new-for-2018 basic wheels, the remainder of the 230’s basic features must stay the same in the new model year. If this proves true, expect the 230 to come basic with automatic headlights, automated dual-zone environment control, leatherette upholstery, a leather-wrapped and tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a 6.5-inch display screen, and a seven-speaker audio system.
2018 BMW 230 Engine
The 2018 BMW 230 powertrain will stay completely the same. It will include a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that will produce 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. This power will head through an eight-speed Steptronic transmission that will provide it to the rear wheels as standard– buyers can add an optional six-speed manual transmission at no cost. Optionally, purchasers can add xDrive all-wheel drive.
2018 BMW 230 Safety
The current 2-Series is an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus, thanks to its good scores in all the significant crash tests and its advanced forward-collision mitigation system. The collision-mitigation system is, of course, a choice. Likewise included in the optional safety devices list are front and rear parking sensors, a rearview video camera, and lane-departure caution. These rankings and features must continue the same in 2018.
