BMW M240i.

This vehicle gets started where others stop: the turbocharged inline 6-cylinder petrol engine with 250 kW (340 hp) lends it record-worthy sprint qualities with maximum efficiency. The M Aerodynamics package, the rear spoiler lip and the M chassis result in an extremely athletic look, more contact pressure and optimal driving behaviour in every situation. And even the interior of the BMW M240i, with its Sport seats for the driver and front passenger, M leather steering wheel with multifunction and many more options, takes on the atmosphere of a world that revolves around racing. And offers high performance like it should be experienced: breathtakingly.

  • Exterior

    With its special inline 6-cylinder engine and sporty engine sound, the M Performance is the sportiest of the 2 Series models. Even at first glance, its 18" M light alloy wheels with specially developed mixed tyres, Xenon Headlights and M Sport brakes in Dark Blue metallic with the "M" logo are indicative of the vehicle's dedication to outstanding sportiness. The specially aligned M Sport suspension, lowered by 10 mm, and variable sport steering incl. Servotronic, give the vehicle improved agility and driving dynamics. More safety, more driving dynamics: The optional all-wheel drive system BMW xDrive distributes power flexibly between the two axles, thus ensuring optimum traction and agility even in difficult driving conditions.
    The M Aerodynamics package with a special front apron and rear diffuser, along with the rear spoiler on the luggage compartment, ensure better aerodynamics and downforce behaviour. Exterior mirror caps in Ferric Grey, along with the two tailpipes in black chrome, perfectly round off the vehicle's sporty look. Any remaining doubts about this model's unique performance are immediately dispelled by the sight of the "M235i" model name in dark chrome on the rear.

  • Interior

    The interior of the M Performance model exudes extraordinary sportiness with door sill finishers with the "M235i" logo, sport seats for the driver and front passenger with classic M-style upholstery seams and the M leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons. The appropriate atmosphere is generated by the M interior trims in sporty Aluminium Hexagon and the instrument cluster with a specific dial design and fine chronoscales, as well as by the instrument cluster with extended functionality complete with "M235i" logo. The optional Dakota leather Oyster with Oyster dark highlights in the light interior world creates a particularly elegant contrast to the sporty presence. The M Performance model also comes with an M driver footrest. The interior lighting can be set to the exclusive colours orange-red or white. The BMW Individual headliner in Anthracite above complements the dynamic look. The Radio Professional adds a melodious final touch to the interior.

Launch Control

LAUNCH CONTROL.

LAUNCH CONTROL.

The BMW 2 Series Coupé impresses from the word go; even when it’s standing still. The key word is one that gets all sporty drivers excited: maximum acceleration. This is made possible by a function of the 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, called Launch Control. One short press of the DSC button, slide the gear lever into ‘S’, set the brakes and activate the kick-down function with the accelerator – now release the brakes and find out what torque means.

Adaptive M Suspension

ADAPTIVE M SUSPENSION.

The Adaptive M suspension is set ten millimetres lower, further increasing the vehicle's full dynamic potential. The driver can adjust the driving characteristics via the Driving Experience Control to enable whichever driving style is most appealing at the time – from comfortable to extremely athletic. Whichever setting is chosen, the Adaptive M suspension's electrically controlled dampers calibrate to suit the road conditions within fractions of a second. The system also uses numerous sensors that measure wheel vibrations, as well as vehicle speed, in order to achieve optimal damping and vehicle safety.

COMFORT mode can be selected for relaxed travelling. SPORT mode enables a distinctly athletic suspension setting with noticeably tighter damper settings. For extremely dynamic driving, SPORT+ mode is the best choice: the DTC function (Dynamic Traction Control) is activated, which allows more wheel-slip on the drive wheels, for athletic driving that pushes the limits of the car's dynamics. However, the DSC function is not completely disabled; rather it intervenes much later – within the limits of what is physically possible and safe – in order to stabilise the vehicle.

Variable sport steering

VARIABLE SPORT STEERING.

Variable sport steering with Servotronic allows for direct and agile driving characteristics with minimal steering effort. It reacts by varying the steering ratio independently of the current speed. In doing so, it reduces the necessary steering movement to achieve a particularly tight steering angle. This greatly improves agility, particularly when driving dynamically around tight bends and curves or when swerving to avoid an obstacle. It also enhances comfort when parking, turning and manoeuvring. For small steering angles, the system provides excellent directional stability and a very high degree of steering precision.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE CONTROL.

DRIVING EXPERIENCE CONTROL.

Comfort Mode, ECO PRO Mode and Sport Mode.

Driving Experience Control lets the driver choose between the Comfort Mode, the ECO PRO Mode, geared towards efficiency, and the Sport Mode, which enables even more dynamic driving.

Efficiency with ECO PRO Mode.

The fuel-efficient ECO PRO Mode intelligently adapts the characteristics of the accelerator pedal and transmission, as well as the heating/air conditioning settings. The ECO PRO Mode reduces fuel consumption by up to 20 per cent. The "Coasting" function, Route-Ahead Assistant and ECO PRO Route (only available with Navigation System Professional) further help to conserve fuel. The Route-Ahead Assistant uses the navigation system to assess local road conditions and give tips in advance. If there is a speed limit change around the next curve, the system advises the driver to slow down before turning.
ECO PRO Route also helps to ensure efficient use of fuel. It suggests an efficiency-optimised route that takes into account the volume of traffic, individual driving style and local conditions. The coasting function allows the vehicle to glide along the road at up to 160 km/h when the driver takes his or her foot from the gas without braking. In Sport Mode, the car responds more directly, allowing for a sportier driving style.

HANDLING.

The BMW 2 Series Coupé isn’t just tailor-made to its driver’s needs with regards to design and functionality. Even its technology is all about creating a machine that offers true driving pleasure. And it achieves this goal! Thanks to BMW rear drive, Driving Experience Control, variable sport steering and – unique in its class – perfectly-balanced 50:50 weight distribution, this sports coupé thrills with extraordinarily agile, precise handling. Or as we call it: unbridled driving pleasure.
