New 2024 BMW 2 Series Coupe: Price, specs and release date

BMW has given its 2 Series Coupe a mid-life refresh, with tweaked looks, a new interior and updated technology. It's available to order now with the first deliveries due in August.

The facelifted BMW 2 Series boasts slightly revised looks, new colour choices and upgraded infotainment software, with other interior improvements, too.

You can choose from three petrol engines, with prices starting at £36,865. The overhaul also encompasses the £63,360 M2 performance model, which now boasts more power at 480PS.

BMW will hope that the refresh keeps the 2 Series competitive against alternatives, although there aren't that many currently on the market. While some traditional coupe alternatives like the Audi TT have been phased out, there's still the Toyota GR86 and other sleek premium cars like the Mercedes-Benz CLA.

The new BMW 2 Series is available to order now with the first customer deliveries due in August.

Prices start at £36,865 for the 220i, rising to £40,320 for the 230i. The M240i xDrive model costs from £46,045, while the performance-focused M2 costs from £63,360.

The interior of the revised 2 Series Coupe features an upgraded infotanment system with BMW's latest Curved Display dominating the dashboard.

BMW has kept exterior revisions to the 2 Series minimal, and they follow the recipe already seen in updates to the larger 4 Series coupe. A few bits have been tweaked, such as with new alloy-wheel designs and a pearlescent chrome finish to the grille, and there are new paint colour option, too – Fire Red metallic and Skyscraper Grey. The M2 gets a new Sao Paulo Yellow paint option.

Most of the big changes can be found inside, chiefly through the upgraded infotainment technology. The 2 Series now boasts the BMW Curved Display screen across the dash, which merges a 12.3-inch driver display behind the steering wheel with a 14.9-inch screen in the centre. The screens run the latest version of BMW's iDrive system and can adjust the air conditioning, (standard) heated seats and steering wheel heating (where fitted). Voice control can also be used. 

Upgraded ambient lighting now includes a waterfall feature with nine colours to choose from, and the steering wheel has been redesigned with a flat bottom and, on the M240i, a red centre marker at the top. New upholstery comes in the form of "M PerformTex" velour, while options include Sensatec synthetic leather and Vernasca leather trim.

Other options for interior trim include Fineline open-pore wood and grey-blue Ash, as well as M Carbon Fibre. You can also add glass to the gear selector, infotainment controller and start/stop button.

New 2024 BMW 2 Series: engines and gearbox

The engines in the BMW 2 Series range remain largely unchanged, save for extra power in the M2.

The petrol-only lineup starts with the 2.0-litre 220i, which has 184PS and 300Nm, reaching 62mph from standstill in 7.5 seconds and promising fuel economy up to 44.1mpg.

Next up is the 230i, which also uses the 2.0-litre engine but now has 245PS and 400Nm, reducing the 0-62mph time to 5.9 seconds and fuel economy up 42.8mpg.

For extra performance, the four-wheel-drive M240i xDrive has 374PS and 500Nm from its three-litre straight-siz engine, which translates to a 0-62mph time of 4.3 seconds. Fuel economy drops to 34.9mpg. The high-performance M2 ups power to 480PS (an increase of 20PS from the pre-facelift M2), which improves the acceleration time to 4.0 seconds from 4.2.

All 2 Series models come with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.

The practicality levels of the refreshed 2 Series are unchanged – there are four seats, the rear two of which are best kept for children. At 390 liotres the boot is a decent size, and you can fold down the back seats in a 40/20/40 split to carry larger loads.

Although BMW makes a number of electric versions of its cars, there's no full-electric 2 Series at present. In fact, BMW doesn't make electric versions of any of its coupe cars.

The revised BMW M2 is quick, hitting 62mph from standstill in 4.0 seconds. However, the BMW M4 is quicker, taking 3.5 seconds to hit the same benchmark speed.
