The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 2-Series may be an entry-level model in BMW's lineup, but it builds on a rich lineage, as a well-rounded luxury sports coupe with all the looks, handling and features that you might expect. The 2016 Buick Cascada is built for days when the best driving is done with the top down.
