Which used BMW 2 Series coupe should I buy?

The 134bhp, three-cylinder, 1.5-litre turbocharged petrol engine does a very fine job, so this could be a good bet for those wanting a zesty-feeling petrol motor, and fairly low costs. The 181bhp four-cylinder, 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol in the 220i promises hearty performance, while the 3.0-litre straight-six turbocharged petrol engine gives the M235i and later M240i full-on performance car pace and thrills. It’s a wonderfully smooth, muscular engine. The 218d has a 141bhp 2.0-litre diesel and is a pleasure to drive, and offers really low running costs, making it our pick of the diesels. With the 2.0-litre diesel tuned to 188bhp in the 20d, you get near hot hatch levels of performance and good running costs,while it’s hard to justify the extra cost for this 215bhp version of the 2.0-litre diesel in the 225d.

Our pick of the trims is entry-level SE, and it’s well equipped. 17in alloy wheels, air-con, BMW’s 6.5in colour screen iDrive infotainment system with DAB radio, sat-nav and Bluetooth, LED headlights, rear parking sensors and automatic lights and wipers are all included. It means there’s little point in upgrading to Sport or M Sport, unless you particularly like their styling.
