2025 BMW 2 Series Coupe Refreshed with New Tech, Subtle Tweaks


BMW is refreshing its sporty smaller coupes with a “focus on digitalization.” The big news is BMW’s new iDrive 8.5 with QuickSelect: It operates the interface on the curved 12.3-inch Information Display and 14.9-inch Control Display, and that now means fewer buttons and knobs—climate control, seat heating functionality, and optional steering wheel heating all use the touch-screen Control Display or voice commands using BMW Intelligent Personal Assistant.

BMW says that its Operating System 8.5 allows interaction with the driver using natural language via said Intelligent Personal Assistant. Both the Information Display and the Control Display are highly configurable, and QuickSelect shortcuts can keep frequently used menus in easy view, without delving deeper into submenus. Also helping to keep the driver focused on the road, the full-color BMW Head-Up Display works with the navigation system and is supplemented by the Augmented View function to deliver real-time information like directional arrows.

Aside from the tech that makes more thorough use of the large screens, 2025 BMW 230i models come standard with heated sports seats for the driver and front passenger, and offer a choice of four colors of perforated SensaTec upholstery, including new Tacora Red, along with four colors of Vernasca leather. M Fine Brushed Aluminum trim is now standard in M240i models, with two options for open-pore wood trim available on all 2 Series Coupes. Carbon Fiber trim is optional as well, but only on M240i models.

230i buyers can opt for the M Sport Package, which comes standard on M240i models. It brings front air intakes, side skirts, and a rear apron with a “diffuser-like” insert. Inside, it replaces the new two-spoke steering wheel with the new M leather steering wheel that comes standard on M240i. The M wheel is distinguished by its flat bottom, red center marker, and BMW M tricolor contrast stitching. Additionally, an M Sport Professional Package is available on all BMW 2 Series Coupes. It adds M Shadow Line lights, a black M rear spoiler, and Extended Shadowline trim to compliment M Sport brakes. Those brakes are already standard on M240i models, but they’ll get red calipers. 230i models equipped with the M Sport Professional Package can also opt for red or blue calipers.

Two new metallic paint colors are available for 2025 2 Series Coupes, Vegas Red and Skyscraper Grey, while two BMW Individual metallic finishes, Frozen Pure Grey, and Frozen Portimao Blue II, are also available. Zandvoort Blue, previously exclusive to the M2, can now be selected on the M240i.

2025 230i models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 255hp and 296lb-ft of torque, a 14hp improvement over its predecessor. The M240i models use a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that cranks out 382hp and 369lb-ft of torque, equalling the output of the current M240i models.

The base MSRP for the 2025 BMW 230i, including destination, will be $40,375, with the M240i starting at $51,275. Adding xDrive all-wheel-drive to either model will cost $2000. The new BMW 2 Series Coupe will be built in San Luis Potosí, Mexico, and should arrive at dealerships starting this August.
