2022 BMW 2-Series vs. Its Competition

2022 BMW 2-Series
Brian Wong Brian Wong West Coast Editor

The 2-Series lineup offers an interesting foil to the Mercedes-Benz CLA and A-Class ranges.

The Gran Coupe is slightly more spacious than a CLA and slightly more stylish than an A-Class, and you’ll spend a lot more to buy a C-Class convertible or coupe.

Audi’s A3 range is buttoned down and full of tech, though there’s no convertible or coupe to tempt.

The Cadillac CT4 is stylish outside and priced right—don’t leave it off your shopping list.

Lexus also offers a performance-oriented coupe of its own, the RC.
