2021 BMW 230 Review 

The 2021 BMW 230 is a beautiful beast that exudes driver confidence and performance from any angle.

While the 2021 BMW 230 Coupe is the last of its generation and will be replaced shortly, it is far from being written off as a subcompact rear-wheel-drive luxury coupe.

The BMW 230 for 2021 offers a great driving experience with class-leading comfort and technology. Show us a coupe in this class that isn’t congested in the back. Aside from that, this car is fun to drive and worthy of your time.

The long hood and short, muscular rear end of the BMW 230 coupe symbolize classic M cars like the E46 M3.

The BMW 230i for 2021 is fitted with a high-gloss black kidney frame, 17-inch double-spoke wheels, and chrome-line exterior trim. Moreover,  LED headlights and taillights are available on all models.

The BMW 230i is the entry-level model, but it nevertheless accelerates to 60 mph in 5.3 seconds and has a top speed of 130 mph. 

The BMW 230i’s turbocharged 2.0-liter engine provides powerful pull across the range, allowing it to feel on point and ready to go whenever the need arises.

The BMW 230i car is a good puller on the highway, and it can quickly overtake without breaking a step.

2021 BMW 230 Interior

The cabin of the 2021 BMW 230 is well-designed, with comfortable front bucket seats and plenty of room for front-seat passengers. On the other hand, adults would have a rough time riding back there for long periods due to the lack of legroom. Meanwhile, necessary gauges and an instrument panel reflect the car’s sporty intentions, but some materials are unimpressive for vehicles in this price range.

The BMW 230 has a large trunk for a small sedan, but its limited back-seat area leaves little room for additional cargo. Furthermore, there isn’t enough cubby room, and the center console bin is too small.

The BMW 230’s standard infotainment system has a well-organized menu layout and an easy-to-use rotary knob for simple operation. 

However, with just one USB port available, this isn’t the ideal configuration. While in-dash navigation is an option, SiriusXM satellite radio, real-time traffic, and the Apple CarPlay interface come standard. At the same time, The option to use Android Auto is not available.

The interior trim on the BMW 230i is High-gloss Black with Pearl Gloss Chrome highlights and an Anthracite headliner.

Aluminum Hexagon interior trim with Estoril Blue highlights gives the sportier BMW 230i a more performance-oriented look.

The BMW 230i’s standard seats are available in Oyster and black, or all black with or without red stitching, and Dakota leather is available in black, Coral Red, Oyster, Cognac, and black with red highlights.
