Even as their vehicles get larger and more complex, BMW has made a point of recalling the diminutive and beloved 2002 as a frame of reference for the inspiration behind cars like the new M235i. First sold in 1968, the 2002 was instrumental in establishing BMW's reputation in the realm of compact sports sedans and coupes, and served as the predecessor to the 3-Series.
Today we got a chance to take an in-depth look at this Sahara Beige example, which is equipped with a 98hp, 2.0-liter four cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. First we'll give the 2002 a thorough once-over inside and out, then hit the street to see what it's like at speed:
