The BMW 228i is simply put, a very good car that looks great and does great across a wide range of driving conditions. The base model is incredibly affordable and even without all the costly add-ons, is still a very capable machine. The ride is characteristic of what I expect from a BMW, which is the solid and sturdy body feel of a slightly heavier vehicle. It is this, combined with the harmonious combination of suspension and steering feel that makes driving this car so great.
