2021 BMW 2-Series Interior Review

Scorecard

Interior: 6.9

The 2021 BMW 2 Series has an upscale cabin, a straightforward infotainment system, and a surprisingly good amount of cargo space.

  • "Straightforward gauges and a simple instrument panel speak to this car's sporty intentions, but some of the materials are uninspired for a car in this price range." -- Car and Driver
  • "The interior ably flaunts its BMW parentage, with a luxurious, driver-oriented design and nary a trace of cost-cutting." -- Autoblog
  • "There are no surprises when it comes to the Gran Coupe's interior. If you've been in any current BMW, this cabin looks and feels much like the interiors of its more expensive stablemates. The horizontal dash layout and use of above-average materials are right in line with our expectations, not just for the price but for the BMW brand." -- Edmunds

Cargo

The BMW 2 Series coupe has 13.8 cubic feet of trunk space, which is above average for a luxury small car. The Gran Coupe has one of the highest cargo volumes in the class at 15.1 cubic feet. The 2 Series convertible has 11.8 cubic feet of trunk space with the top up and 9.9 cubic feet with the top down.

  • "The 2-series has a relatively large trunk for a compact sedan, but its small back-seat area doesn't leave much space for extra cargo." -- Car and Driver
  • "Despite the fastback profile, the 2 Series Gran Coupe sports a conventional trunk instead of a big hatch. That said, the trunk capacity is large for the class. There is enough interior storage for your personal items too." -- Edmunds (2020)
  • "Further back, the short trunklid is more mail slot than parcel dump. One full-size suitcase will easily fit, and you can probably cram some smaller bags around it. Blame the serious case of 'X6 butt,' coupled with the decision to keep it a traditional trunk and not a hatchback like the larger 4 Series." -- Motor Trend (2020)

Seating

The BMW 2 Series coupe and convertible both seat four people, and the Gran Coupe seats five. All models have comfortable and supportive front seats. The Gran Coupe's second row is much more spacious and adult-friendly than the cramped back seat found in the coupe and convertible.

Standard features include synthetic leather upholstery, 10-way power-adjustable front sport seats, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and driver's seat and sideview mirror memory settings. Options include Dakota leather upholstery, heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, four-way front-seat power lumbar support, a sport steering wheel, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, paddle shifters, and 14-way power-adjustable M front sport seats.

For installing child safety seats, there are two complete sets of LATCH connectors for the rear outboard seats, and Gran Coupe models have a tether anchor for the rear middle seat. This LATCH system is generally easy to use.

  • "The cabin is well designed, with comfortable front buckets with adequate room for front-seat passengers. Legroom in the rear, however, is so cramped that adults will have a hard time riding back there for long." -- Car and Driver
  • "One of the more significant differences between the two-door 2 Series and this Gran Coupe sedan is rear-seat space. … There's plenty of adult-size legroom in the rear outboard spots, and headroom is adequate for passengers who are about 5 feet 9 inches or shorter. The seat cushion is mounted a little low, which reduces thigh support, but it still provides more comfort and space than rivals." -- Edmunds (2020)
  • "The packaging upside includes 34.4 inches of rear legroom, just 0.8-inch fewer than a 3 Series, so it’s eminently comfortable for two largish adults in back." -- Autoblog (2020)

Interior Features

The 2021 2 Series comes standard with BMW's iDrive infotainment system, which is regarded by critics as intuitive and user-friendly once you get past an initial learning curve. Instead of a touch screen, you use a rotary controller on the center console.

Standard features include automatic climate control, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a rearview camera, a 6.5-inch infotainment display, Apple CarPlay, a seven-speaker stereo, HD Radio, satellite radio, a USB port, and Bluetooth. The standard Active Driving Assistant bundle is comprised of forward collision warning, lane departure warning, pedestrian detection, and automatic emergency braking.

Optional features include an 8.8- or 10.25-inch infotainment display, navigation, wireless device charging, Android Auto, a 10-speaker stereo, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound stereo, a 5.1-inch digital instrument cluster display or a 10.25-inch fully digital instrument cluster, and remote start. Proximity keyless entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, ambient interior lighting, a standard-sized or a panoramic moonroof, and a universal garage door opener are also available.

Available active safety technologies include adaptive cruise control, automatic parking assist, adaptive headlights, blind spot monitoring, speed limit recognition, automatic high-beam headlights, and a head-up display.

  • "The standard infotainment system in the 2-series benefits from a well-organized menu structure and an easy-to-use rotary knob for simple operation. With just one available USB port, though, it's not a perfect setup." -- Car and Driver
  • "On board is … BMW’s iDrive system, and at this point pretty much all previous kinks are long-gone. Enhanced by helpful sub-menu buttons arranged around the big rotary controller, the system is easy and intuitive to use." -- Automobile Magazine (2019)
  • "The well-placed and clearly labeled controls simplify operation and are intuitive enough that you don't have to look away from the road to use them. The iDrive interface has a slight learning curve, but it's one of the better systems available." -- Edmunds (2019)
