Brutal performance cars get a power boost: 2025 BMW M2 gets more power to combat the influx of fast EVs like the Tesla Model 3 Performance, Polestar 2 Performance and BYD Seal Performance – Automotive News

BMW has unveiled its updated 2 Series Coupe range with higher prices and new equipment.

The 2 Series range remains unchanged, with the 230i starting at $76,900, followed by the M240i ($99,900) and the hot M2 ($123,900, all before on-road costs).

The new prices represent a price increase of between $2,200 and $3,900 depending on the variant.

The most significant changes concern the hero M2 car.

It now produces 353kW and 600Nm from its 3.0-litre turbo-petrol six-cylinder engine, a jump of 15kW and 50Nm.

The bad news is that this only applies to examples equipped with an eight-speed automatic. If you want to change gear yourself, torque remains the same at 550Nm, but you get the extra kW.

BMW has made changes to the throttle response in the selectable driving modes that help it accelerate quicker than before.

Both the manual and automatic versions are 0.1 seconds quicker to 100 km/h, completing the benchmark sprint in 4.2 seconds and 4.0 seconds respectively.

The changes are more minor elsewhere.

A new flat-bottomed M leather steering wheel is now standard and there is a choice of new M light alloy wheels, as well as a redesigned instrument cluster.

BMW has made a series of minor changes to the styling and equipment of the 2 Series Coupe, including synthetic leather upholstery, heated front seats, a tire pressure monitor and the enhancement of the M Sport package.

M240i models benefit from upgraded exterior features, M sport seats, a heated steering wheel and a tire pressure monitor.

Both use the same engine as before.

The 230i uses a 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine developing 190kW and 400Nm and mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission driving the rear wheels.

M240i buyers can expect a powerful 3.0-litre turbocharged six-cylinder engine developing 285kW and 500Nm with an eight-speed automatic transmission driving all four wheels.
