The driving dynamics of the BMW 2 Series Coupé.

When you’re living life to the full, you’re not interested in compromises. Neither is the BMW 2 Series Coupé. Its road-holding, 50:50 weight distribution and the sports performance of its rear drive are unique in its class. Powerful and dynamic, it is focused on a single goal: delivering ultimate driving pleasure.


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

BMW M235i.

This vehicle is just getting started where others stop: the turbocharged straight six-cylinder petrol engine with 240 kW (326 hp) gives it record-worthy sprint qualities with maximum efficiency. The M Aerodynamics package, the rear spoiler lip and the M chassis result in an athletic look and give the car more contact pressure and optimal driving behaviour in every situation. Even the interior of the BMW M235i, 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. The vehicle delivers high performance driving as it should be experienced.
  • With its special six-cylinder in-line engine and exhilarating 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 including Servotronic, give the vehicle improved agility and driving dynamics. 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.
  • The interior of the M Performance model exudes extraordinary sportiness with the "M235i" logo on the door sill finishers, 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, in addition to 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 headliner in Anthracite above complements the dynamic look, with the Radio Professional adding a melodious final touch to the interior.

Experience Launch Control in the BMW 2 Series Coupé.

The BMW 2 Series Coupé impresses from the word go; even when it’s standing still. Maximum acceleration is what gets all sports car enthusiasts excited. This is made possible by a function of the eight-speed Sport automatic transmission, called Launch Control. Simply press 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.

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 Drive Performance 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 Drive Performance Control. In Sport+ mode, the Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) is replaced by the Dynamic Traction Control (DTC),which allows for an even more dynamic experience.

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.

Drive Performance Control.

Drive Performance 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. 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. Route-Ahead Assistant and ECO PRO Route (only available with ProfessionalNavigation System) 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. In Sport mode, the car responds more directly, allowing for a sportier driving style.
