F22 / F23 2 Series (2014 - Current)
The 2 Series coupe is the replacement for the E82/E88 1 series coupe. Production starts in November 2013 on the 228i (N20) and M235i (N55) coupes. Look for them in dealerships in February 2014. The convertible F23 2 series will follow in the fall of 2014.

2017 BMW 2 Series IIHS Top Safety Pick+

2017 BMW 2 Series Earns IIHS Top Safety Pick+

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety named the 2017 BMW 2 Series Coupe a Top Safety Pick+, continuing the company's long-standing commitment to offer class-leading safety with each new model. In order to earn a 2017 Top Safety Pick +, a vehicle must earn good ratings in the five IIHS crashworthiness tests - small overlap front, moderate overlap front, side, roof strength and head restraints - as well as an advanced or superior rating for front crash prevention and new for 2017, an acceptable or good headlight rating.

2017 BMW 2 Series 230i & M240i - Pricing and ordering guides

Since its introduction in 2014, the BMW 2 Series has been recognized by the IIHS every year for four consecutive appearances. The 2 Series has been praised for its body structure integrity receiving a top rating in all crashworthiness tests. Most recently the 2017 BMW 2 Series Coupe was awarded a "Top Safety Pick" in the 2017 IIHS TSP/TSP+ in early December 2016. BMW then implemented improvements to the 2017 BMW 2 Series Coupe headlights. The IIHS evaluated this vehicle at their proving grounds in late December 2016 and was awarded a "GOOD" rating. With this result the 2017 BMW 2 Series earns once again a "Top Safety Pick +" rating.

2017 BMW 3 Series also Earn IIHS Top Safety Pick+

The 2017 BMW 2 Series Coupe provides a high-level of standard safety features including BMW Assist eCall, BMW TeleService, Dynamic Stability Control, Brake Dry Assist, Cornering Brake Control and Dynamic Traction Control. Optional features such as Lane Departure Warning, Frontal Collision Warning including Pedestrian Warning and City Collision Mitigation are also available.

I am very curious to know exactly what BMW did to get a "good" rating on the 2 Series HID headlights, previously rated "poor." Did they simply adjust them differently? Is there a design difference?
Also, if you look at the IIHS web site detailed information (print report), there is a chart showing how well the lights hit the IIHS target for a "good" rating. On low beam, the 2 Series HID did hit the marks, but was slightly short on high beam. The 3 Series LED was short of the target on low beam but straight ahead high beam hit the target. 3 Series LED got an "acceptable" grade, so not quite as good at 2 Series HID.
