What we like:
pros
Compact dimensions that make it an easy car to drive. Excellent chassis balance and accurate steering. A pliant ride that mimics that of a larger car.
What we dislike:
cons
Engine seems slightly overwhelmed by the added weight over the coupe.

And like the coupe, despite the compact dimensions, the 2,690mm wheelbase feels decent even for large adults like myself. Space is also decent in the back though headroom can be a bit of an issue with the roof up. The rear buckets does come off a bit tight and isn’t recommended for long journeys. While the coupe had 390 litre, the cabriolet still musters up a decent number at 335 litres.

While not an exact topless replication of the coupe, the 220i cabriolet does well as an all-rounder. There’s a decent level of dynamic repertoire to keep you entertained, a comfortable pliant ride to make it suitable as a daily drive and goes topless whenever the mood (or weather) strikes. But for more poke, the 228i with its 245bhp will be up to the task of delivering the same thrills the 220i Coupe offers in spades.
