The BMW 2 Series Coupe may be unchanged for 2021, but its drop-top sibling has dropped off the price lists.

BMW Australia has confirmed its entry-level convertible has been discontinued, with the last new stock recently being exhausted.

While we’ve seen plenty of spy photos of the next-generation model, expected to launch in 2022, we notably haven’t seen any shots of a replacement 2 Series convertible.

Pricing for the outgoing model starts at $56,900 before on-road costs for the 220i Luxury Line and tops out at $109,900 before on-roads for the M2 Competition auto.
