BMW 2 Series and M2 Coupe priced



BMW Australia has announced pricing for its updated 2 Series and M2 Coupe variants, which will arrive in local showrooms before the end of the year.

As for the 2 Series line-up, we found the entry-grade 220i has been dropped from the range, with pricing now limited to the 230i, which starts at $76,900, plus on-road costs, a slight increase of $100.

Pricing for the sportier M240i xDrive rises by $650 to $99,900, excluding on-road costs.

As mentioned Recently Updated BMW 1 SeriesThe 2 Series range includes equipment such as heated front seats with lumbar support, parking assist technology and tyre pressure monitoring.

The M Sport package now adopts contrasting black colourways instead of body colouring. Black elements are also found on the mirror caps of the M240i xDrive, which further accentuate the 'M' badge on the lower grille.

Moving inside we find the latest BMW Operating System 8.5 software, LED ambient cabin lighting and a flat-bottom M steering wheel (M240i xDrive only).

There are also upholstery, trim, paint and alloy wheel options available.

The BMW 230i is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine that develops 190kW of power and 400Nm of torque and powers the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission.

For the M240i xDrive, BMW's powerful 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine delivers 285kW and 500Nm, again paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel drive variant can accelerate to 100km/h in 4.3 seconds – 1.5 seconds faster than the 230i.

Moving up to the exhilarating M2 Coupe (now from $123,900 + ORCs) we find its power and torque have increased to 353kW and 600Nm, gains of 15kW and 50Nm respectively (the torque increase is for the auto only).

Both the six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic versions offer quicker acceleration than before – down by 0.1 seconds to 4.2 seconds – with sharper throttle response from the remapped M TwinPower turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine.

There are changes elsewhere under the bonnet too, including a new paint palette, optional alloy wheel designs, red/black leather upholstery option and an M flat-bottom steering wheel.

In addition, lightweight M Carbon bucket seats ($12,000) can also be optionally specified, as can an M Alcantara steering wheel ($1000).

Like the 2 Series Coupe, the M2 Coupe also features the latest OS 8.5 software and a redesigned instrument panel that BMW says enhances functionality. The cabin also has new adjustments for the air ventilation outlets, which now use rotating and tilting movements.

BMW Australia says the 2 Series Coupe and M2 Coupe ranges will begin arriving in local dealerships from the fourth quarter of this year (2024).
