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.

Photo Comparison: BMW 2 Series vs. Audi A3 Sedan

I'm on a photo comparison roll here! Audi released the details of their 2015 A3 Sedan last night as well, so lets give these two a side by side look.

Both nice but 2 Series (especially M-sport versions) look much more aggressive than A3.
I wonder if M235i will have AWD like S3 or CLA45

I don't know that comparing the M235i to the standard A3 is really a valid comparison.

I think the 2 series interior is a total mess.

The A3 series interior is clean and neat.

I drive BMW's, not Audi's, by the way.

Reasonable minds can differ on this.

Yes, so nice to see the color in the Audi. I love Audi interiors and just tolerate BMW interiors. Not only are the BMW materials cheaper feeling, the color choices are totally uninspired, boring, dull, & etc. Have you built an A-6 on-line with the brown and black leather and walnut trim? Or the red (real red, not pink coral) in the A-5? Those are my target interiors for BMW to copy. I bought my 4 series only because it is a total hoot to drive, reminding me of my old '88 535 iS. But, no sane person would buy a 5 series after sitting in a new A-6. I am considering a 2 series or an A-3 to replace my Volt when the lease is up. It will be fun figuring this one out...
