2014 BMW 2 Series Pricing and Features Leaked
Someone let the cat out of the bag about a month before the 2014 BMW 2 Series is set to debut at the Detroit auto show. A document sent to BMW dealers (and leaked over the Internet) reveals information on pricing, options, and more for the all-new 2 Series Coupe. The 228i will be available for $33,025 when a destination charge is figured in to the total. Meanwhile, the high-performance M235i will sell for a base price of $44,025. Based on the leaked BMW 2 Series pricing information, it is clear that the car will cost significantly more than the Mercedes-Benz CLA-Class, which is priced under $30,000 MSRP. However, the 2 Series is very similarly priced to the 3 Series from which it spawned. Also leaked is a full set of standard and optional features for the upcoming BMW 2 Series. On the 228i Coupe, standard features include stop/start technology, leather steering wheel, automatic climate control, BMW Assist eCall, hands-free Bluetooth, and in BMW tradition, not too much more than that. Options include a $550 metallic paint fee, $1,450 for leather upholstery, $700 for a cold weather package, and $3,000 for a sporty M Sport package. The Premium package, which includes a moonroof, power front seat with lumbar support, leather upholstery, and keyless entry, costs $4,050. The Technology package, including navigation, real time traffic, and BMW Apps, requires an extra $2,150. Standalone options include $875 for a Harman/Kardon audio system and $250 for automatic high beams. The M version also gets a number of options, but most are priced less than if buyers were to tack them onto the lower 228i model. Standard features on the BMW M235i include M sport brakes, sport seats, Adaptive M Suspension, and more. Source: 2Series.org
In a letter to dealers, Mercedes-Benz says the 2014 CLA supply may be tight as demand remains high.
