The Audi A3 convertible is the closest competitor to the BMW 2-Series and offers a similarly potent turbo-4 that we like.
The M240i has a leg up for performance, but Audi’s infotainment system is easier to use.
The Cadillac ATS isn’t long for lots.
The automaker will discontinue it soon in favor of another model.
Discounts should be plentiful.
The CLA-Class is a four-door, although like the 2-Series, we only consider two seats to be fully useful.
The Cascada may be discontinued next year and is a better pick if your convertible needs only to be a boulevardier.
The Toyota 86 is far less expensive and less luxurious, but offers the same rear-drive layout that makes the 2-Series compelling.
