New BMW M240i & 2 Series Coupe: RWD-based chassis for the win!
Need help buying your next car? Click the following link and my team and I will help you choose your ideal car at a fair price - from Mat Watson!

Introducing the all-new BMW 2 Series! It’s an new 2 door coupe that borrows heavily from the new 3 & 4 Series, and Mat’s here to run you through everything you need to know!

Top-of-the-range is the BMW M240i. Powered by a 3-litre straight-six turbo (the same as you’ll find in the M440i), it pumps out an awesome 374hp! It can also power you to 60mph in just 4.3 seconds.

If you’re in the mood for kicking out the rear end though, then we’ve got some bad news for you. While the lower level models come in RWD, the M240i is only available as AWD! But hey, at least it’s got a good looking kidney-grille up front…

So what do you think - does the new 2 Series look better than the previous generation? And do you think the M240i is worth the £46,000 starting price? You’ll have to stick with Mat to find out!

    BMW is so consistent in making ugly cars these days 😂😂😂 nobody wants the M4/M3 with those rediculous grills. Now they just made it easy to buy AMG's and Audis

    Ever since Mazda started making BMW cars, it's never been the same. That new Mazda 240i is just ugly but hey what can you say? At least Mazda now make cars with a BMW badge.

  • srspower

    The old two series is definitely much nicer. It's basically like the modern version of the old 3 series. However i thought they had completely ruined it with this version, like old recent bmw's, but looking at your video i think they only partially screwed it up. It still looks pretty good.

    Wait 46k for m240i? For like 63k USD? These car manufacturers lost their dang mind. That's current m2 money. Not to mention that puts the m240i in rs3/ttrs/Corvette money. Shoot, you can even buy a m340i for that money. Good luck bmw. You made the car uglier, and more expensive.

  • Jetara

    Am I the only one that thinks this is way better than the outgoing 2 Series. Never liked the old one, apart from the M2. The Back always looked so wrong, this is so much better. Only hate the fake Exhaust tips on the 240i

  • IsLu DeReA

    BMW designers should be fired. After the awful 4 series now this....

  • kakadots

    Looks aside, this m240i is a quicker car than the first gen M2, that’s progress

  • TheWTFsauce

    I think the head lights are way to small but If this is too be the final years of the in-line 6 I’ll take it in red

    I can't help but see a Fiat 124 spider rearside, only the butt itself is bigger and the lights are smaller (squeezed). I am afraid this will not grow on me as the 4 series has done. The front looks ''blown'' up as well.

  • Vi VaRo

    Both the old 2 coupe and the new 2 coupe are nice looking cars. But the new one gets the lovely interior of the 3 series which is a great update! I’m only missing a 300 HP RWD version. But who knows what’s to come.

    To everyone who is mad in the comments: 1. If you think any new designs from your "favourite" car maker will make you happy, you're an Idiot. You will only ever love the car that made you fall in love with the brand, that's why some of you still think a 30 year old E30 M3 is better than a G8x...this goes for your favourite artists too. 2. The people who will buy it aren't bitching on SVsoft videos about it. A Bugatti EB110 looks like shit and people spent millions on it. People bought Fiat Multiplas, your 2 cents won't make them not buy a BMW. I know this sounds like I'm angry, but lol I really am not, it's just, YOU'RE ADULTS man. Talking about E46 and E90 era...well get in a time machine and buy that when it launches.

    • Itdo belikedat
      Itdo belikedat

      Every previous gen of M3 made me happy. I was very close to ordering a g80 but I realized I hate it. I never felt the way before about an M2/M3. You're a moron and these designs are turning people off.

    Looks stunning! All you so called BMW fans on here trashing the brand every new reveal, you're not allies of BMW. Go spend your money elsewhere (I doubt any of you actually own a BMW by the way. If you did, you would know that BMW is all about how it handles, not how it looks) as BMW will continue to do just fine without you.

    Sorry BMW, bigger is not always better. The current 2 series has better proportion and aesthetics.

  • VDubya

    I think I’ve only see a couple of the 2 series grand coupe on the road. It’s such a poor piece of design. I reckon the front whee drive didn’t make it any more appealing either

  • Vanessa Mabasa

    The 2 series GrandCoupe and the 2 series Coupe share the same name ( 2 series) and are in the same segment but look nothing like each other. They are both new. Why the confusion?

    This 2022 2series is a great combo of e30, e46, and e92(hood reminds me of the v8 m3) and for this reason my friends, I am already in complete love with the new 2series. no MANUEL pisses me off though : )

    I love it 😍

    THIS IS THE WORST design of all that new generation, what were they thinking when design taillights like this? The complete car could be a Chinese car with no problems. BMW you're disappointing, fix your design problem

    As much as one enjoys watching these brilliant , highly improved iterations from the German behemoths , can't help but wonder why they keep pushing out these type of cars when there is a looming climate crisis facing the planet . Guessing that it has to do with demand and with those that have a legitimate voice that remain silent !

    BMW's design department seems to have completely lost its way. First those giant kidney grills on the M3 and M4 series and worse now, a 2 series without BMW's iconic angel eyes in the headlights, really? In my opinion, this is a real mega blunder by BMW, incomprehensible! Jesus, what a failure now with those Taiwan/Japanese lookelike headlights and the rear doesn't exactly shine in élégance either...pfff!
