‘Refreshed’ 2025 BMW 2 Series Coupe Arrives in America for Over $52k, Down from $39,200

Adjacent to the $65k (2025 BMW M2 + $1,175 for handling and destination) is the standard 2025 BMW 2 Series, available in 230i and M240i trim levels, both with RWD and xDrive.

With the release of the magnificent M3 and the upgraded 2025 BMW 3 Series, as well as the updated M2 and 2 Series and the useful and adaptable 2025 MINI Cooper 4-Door, BMW AG is having a fresh summer this year.

The M2 has new body colors, an upgraded iDrive 8.5 operating system, 20 horsepower more than the previous model (473), and a starting MSRP of $64,900 plus $1,175 for destination and handling. The standard coupe in the 2025 BMW 2 Series has also been upgraded, so those who aren’t interested in the exotic sports car could want to give it some thought.

In the modern car market, when everything is about the crossover, SUV, and truck gods, these two-door coupe body shapes are rarer than hen’s teeth. BMW believes that a combination of “unreserved sportiness, extraordinary driving dynamics, and premium features” presented in a traditional format will still be enough to draw in customers.

Although the new 2 Series looks almost exactly like the previous model, don’t expect a revolution—in fact, this is a great starting point for those who want to experience classic BMW driving dynamics. We’re not even sure if this is best described as a facelift, or as the Bavarians like to refer to these refreshes, an LCI (Life Cycle Impulse). In any case, the “new” BMW 2 Series Coupe is being produced in the BMW Group factory in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, alongside the M2, and will be available at dealerships across the country in August.

Prices kick off a little higher than before, as the 2024 model year starts from $38,800 (or $40,800 with xDrive) for the 230i, and the M240i is $49,700 or $51,700 with xDrive. Meanwhile, the 2025 BMW 230i is, from now on, $39,200 or $41,200, whereas the M240i starts at $50,100 or $52,100 – and all of them also get a $1,175 destination and handling fee.

The changes include a couple of new metallic or BMW Individual exterior paints – Vegas Red metallic and Skyscraper Grey metallic plus Frozen Pure Grey or Frozen Portimao Blue II. Additionally, Zandvoort Blue comes down from M2 to M240i. New 19-inch alloy wheels are offered alongside a new M Sport Professional Package with M Shadow Line lights, a black M spoiler in the back, Extended Shadowline trim, and M Sport brakes.

Inside, BMW adds BMW iDrive with QuickSelect using the BMW Operating System 8.5 on the BMW Curved Display with a 12.3-inch instrument cluster and 14.9-inch Control Display. The cockpit has fewer buttons and controls, which is not necessarily a good thing, while the central air vents now integrate new waterfall ambient lighting. There are also new steering wheels, seat surfaces, and trims. The engines – with 255 hp and 295 lb-ft or 382 hp and 369 lb-ft remain the same.
