2015 BMW 228i Coupe Adds Track Handling Package
Starting this July, BMW will offer a performance-boosting Track Handling Package on the 228i Coupe. The package brings an Adaptive M Suspension, which improves responsiveness by allowing all four corners of the vehicle to road conditions instantly. With this feature, drivers can set their own suspension settings through a switch on the center console. BMW has also lowered the car's stance by 0.39 inches with this package, providing for a sporty drive feel. Other upgrades include sport steering, M Sport Brakes, and high-grip Michelin Pilot Super Sport tires on 18-inch alloy wheels. BMW has not yet announced pricing on this package. The package is available on 228i coupes with either the six-speed manual transmission or eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2 Series effectively replaces the 1 Series as BMW's entry level lineup. The 2015 BMW 228i Coupe starts at $32,100 and comes equipped with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder good for 240 horsepower. Standard features include start-stop, HD Radio, keyless ignition, leather-wrapped steering wheel, iDrive color display, and more. Buyers who may not want to go all-out with the Track Handling package may want to consider the Dynamic Handling Package, which includes just the Adaptive M Suspension and variable sport steering for a total of $1,000.
