BMW’s sturdy image takes a bit of a pounding here, as the manufacturer managed only 25st place in our Driver Power 2019 satisfaction survey. The 2 Series itself failed to chart.

When it comes to safety, things are a little different. Euro NCAP hasn’t crash tested this model, but its sister car – the 1 Series – was awarded a full five-star rating. The 2 Series also gets pop-up rollover hoops that emerge from behind the rear seats if the car should turn over, as well as an SOS emergency call function.

Warranty

Every new BMW comes with a three-year, unlimited mileage warranty, which beats Audi's 60,000-mile capped guarantee. 

Servicing

When you need to service your 2 Series will depend on how often you drive it. The service intervals are variable but BMW offers a range of packages to cover routine maintenance.
