Updated BMW 2 Series and M2 Coupe prices announced

Updated BMW 2 Series and M2 Coupe prices announced

BMW Australia has announced prices for its updated 2 Series and M2 Coupe versions, which are expected to be on sale in local showrooms before the end of the year.

In the 2 Series range, we see the entry-level 220i dropped from the range, with the range now starting with the 230i, priced from $76,900, plus a modest $100 increase on-road costs.

The sportier M240i xDrive sees a $650 increase in price to $99,900, excluding on-road costs.

As noted The recently updated BMW 1 SeriesThe 2 Series range adds features such as heated front seats with lumbar support, parking assistance technology and tyre pressure monitoring.

The M Sport Package now adopts contrasting black hues instead of body colour. Black elements are also found on the mirror caps of the M240i xDrive, which also add an ‘M’ emblem to the lower grille.

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

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

The BMW 230i continues to offer a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine producing 190 kW of power and 400 Nm of torque, driving 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 285 kW and 500 Nm, again paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The all-wheel-drive variant can accelerate from standstill to 100 km/h in 4.3 seconds, 1.5 seconds quicker than the 230i.

Moving up to the exciting M2 Coupe (now starting at $123,900+ORC) we see a 353kW and 600Nm increase in power and torque, which is a gain of 15kW and 50Nm respectively (torque gains for the automatic transmission only).

Both the six-speed manual and eight-speed automatic versions offer faster acceleration times than before – down 0.1 seconds to 4.2 seconds – thanks to the sharper throttle response of the retuned M TwinPower turbocharged six-cylinder petrol engine.

The changes under the bonnet are complemented by changes elsewhere, including a new colour palette, optional alloy wheel designs, a red/black leather upholstery option and an M flat-bottomed steering wheel.

Additionally, lightweight M Carbon bucket seats can be specified as options ($12,000) and an M Alcantara steering wheel ($1,000) is also available.

Like the 2 Series Coupe, the M2 Coupe is equipped with the latest OS 8.5 software and features a redesigned instrument cluster that BMW says improves functionality. The cabin also features new adjustments for the air vents, which now use swiveling and tilting movements.

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