Are you ready to experience the thrill of driving a BMW for the first time but not sure where to start? Every BMW is a dream, but if you’re looking for BMW models that are more modest in price for your first luxury car purchase, you certainly have options. The 2017 BMW lineup has more affordable models than ever, and they’re filled with luxury features. Consider these 3 BMW models below for your first luxury purchase.
Drive in Style With the BMW 2 Series
Serving up a mix of strong performance and luxury features, the BMW 2 Series has a starting MSRP of $33,150. The 2 Series is offered as a lean Coupe or as a snazzy Covertible.
With the 2 Series coupe, interior features include imitation leather seating, automatic dual-zone climate control, and manually adjustable front seats. The Convertible has an optional cold weather package that adds heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, so you can stay warm even with the top down. In terms of technology, the 2 Series comes with Bluetooth for phone and audio streaming, a USB port, a 6.5-inch display with BMW’s iDrive platform already loaded, and a seven-speaker audio system.
The standard turbo two-liter four-cylinder engine provides 248 horsepower, enough power to allow strong acceleration. Confident handling and a comfortable ride make the 2 Series an excellent choice.
Enjoy More Room With the BMW X1 SUV
If space is something your looking for, or if you have a family, consider the 2017 BMW X1 SUV. Skillfully blending the drivability of a sedan with the spaciousness of an SUV, the X1 is a great choice for any shopper who wants a compact crossover from a luxury brand. Thanks to its BMW hardware and engineering, the X1 beats many competitors with its superior performance, roomy cabin, and high-tech features.
Enjoy upscale touches inside the X1 such as premium vinyl seating, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, a touchpad controller and 6.5-inch touchscreen outfitted with iDrive, and Bluetooth technology. If you do want to spend a little more, you can get extras such as a panoramic sunroof, keyless entry and ignition, and interior ambient lighting.
Under the hood, a turbocharged two-liter four-cylinder powertrain kicks out 228 horsepower. Thanks to the engine, the X1 has a peppy feel, smooth gear shifts, and athletic handling.
Go Far in the BMW 3 Series
As a compact luxury sport sedan, the 2017 BMW 3 Series stands out in a crowded field of similar vehicles. First, its price starts at $33,450, making it an affordable option for shoppers looking for their first luxury vehicle. Second, the interior brings together attractive amenities including dual-zone climate control, push-button start, a nine-speaker sound system, and a 6.5-inch display that serves as the gateway to the iDrive system.
