When you’re living life to the fullest, you’re not interested in compromises. And neither is the BMW 2 Series Coupé. Its roadholding, 50:50 weight distribution and the sporty performance of its rear drive are unique in its class. Dynamic and vivacious, focused on a single goal: ultimate driving pleasure.

DRIVING DYNAMICS.

DRIVING DYNAMICS.

You can feel its urge to move even when it’s standing still. A promise that the BMW 2 Series Coupé keeps just as soon as you press the start button. Experience it for yourself.

BMW M235i.

This vehicle gets started where others stop: turbocharged straight six-cylinder engine with 322 hp, dynamic braking, a rear spoiler lip for increased surface pressure, an M Sport chassis and lots more – welcome to a world that revolves around racing and offers breathtakingly high performance.

  • Exterior

    With its special six-cylinder in-line engine and sporty engine sound, the M Performance is the sportiest of the 2 Series models. Even at first glance, its 18" M Double Spoke alloy wheels, Bi-Xenon Headlights and M Sport brakes in Dark Blue metallic with the "M" logo are indicative of the vehicle's dedication to outstanding athleticism. The specially-aligned M Sport suspension (lowered by 10 mm) and variable sport steering with Servotronic, give the vehicle improved agility and driving dynamics. The M Aerodynamics package with a special front bumper 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 wrapped in Dakota Leather and the M leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons. The appropriate atmosphere is generated by the M interior trims in 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 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 roofliner in Anthracite complements the dynamic look.

LAUNCH CONTROL.

LAUNCH CONTROL.

The BMW 2 Series Coupé impresses from the word go; even when it’s standing still. The keyword is one that gets all sporty drivers excited: maximum acceleration. This is made possible by a function of the 8-speed Sport automatic 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 experience what torque really means.

ADAPTIVE M SUSPENSION.

The ideal suspension for even more dynamic handling – electronically controlled dampers in the Adaptive M suspension adapt to suit the current driving style and road conditions. You can modify the damper characteristics using the Driving Experience Control. Additionally, the Adaptive M suspension can be lowered by 10 mm, increasing the vehicle's agility.
A noticeably firmer damper setting is activated when the Sport Mode is selected via the Driving Experience Control. In Sport+ Mode, the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is replaced by the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), which allows for even more dynamic driving.

VARIABLE SPORT STEERING.

Variable sport steering with Servotronic provides more direct and precise handling 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 and ECO PRO Route (only available with Navigation System Professional) further help to conserve fuel. ECO PRO Route helps to ensure efficient use of fuel. It suggests an efficiency-optimized 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

HANDLING.

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-wheel 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.
