Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

BMW may have made its name on the success of the 3-Series, but the modern version has grown larger than the zippy compact sedan that made the company’s "Ultimate Driving Machine" slogan believable. In its place sits the 2020 BMW 2-Series. Returning mostly unchanged for the new model year, the 2-Series is the compact sedan for the true Bimmerphile. Even aside from the fearsome M2 Competition Coupe (covered separately), the 2-Series is full of bite-size charm and driving panache. It’s a welcome reminder that BMW’s soul lives in the driver’s seat. With a Gran Coupe on the way, the 2-Series may not survive in its current form too much longer, but we’ll enjoy it while it does.

What's New for 2020

The changes to the 2020 2-Series are minimal outside of the upcoming addition of a Gran Coupe variant. The exterior boasts new darkened taillights, an extra paint color, and new wheel and accent choices. The interior gains a few trim and upholstery options.

BMW 2-Series

Choosing Your BMW 2-Series

The 2-Series may be about simplicity, but choosing one is no simple task.

The first decision to make is the body style. The 2-Series is currently available as either a coupe or a convertible, although losing the roof adds a premium of around $5,000 depending on trim. Thankfully, the space penalty isn’t severe – the convertible loses only two cubic feet of trunk space to its roof mechanism.

Both bodies share two engines that delineate the trim levels. The first is a 2.0-liter twin-turbocharged four-cylinder producing 248 horsepower and 258 pound-feet of torque. It’s usually paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, although the coupe offers the option of a six-speed manual.

The more powerful option is a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder unit pumping out 335 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, which sends power to the wheels via the same transmission options. It’s enough for a zero-to-60 time of 4.2 seconds in an all-wheel-drive coupe.

All-wheel drive is available in any configuration for $2,000. The powertrain dictates the nameplate – cars with the base engine are dubbed 230i, while the six-cylinder engine is called the M240i. xDrive is appended for all-wheel drive.

The EPA rates the 230i at 24 miles per gallon city, 32 mpg highway, and 27 combined. The M240i achieves 19/27/22 mpg (city/highway/combined) with the manual transmission, or 22/30/25 mpg with the automatic.

The remaining features are divided across the two trims:

BMW 2-Series


The 230i starts at $36,295 (all prices include the $995 destination charge) for a coupe or $42,095 for a convertible. It’s a relatively affordable way into BMW ownership, but that doesn’t mean that it skimps on luxury. The 230i includes 17-inch alloy wheels, LED headlights and taillights, 10-way power adjustable front seats, memory settings for the mirrors and driver’s seat, synthetic leather upholstery, automatic climate control, push-button start, and a 6.5-inch touchscreen running BMW’s iDrive system. Standard safety is strong as well, with automatic emergency braking, pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, driver alertness monitors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, and front and rear parking assist.

In BMW fashion, there are three "Designs" to choose from: Sport Line (standard), Luxury (adds chrome exterior touches for $350), and M Sport (adds aggressive exterior trim and features for $4,550).

Gone (thankfully) is BMW’s confusing “Tier” structure, and in its place are two packages bundling extra features. The first is the Convenience Package ($2,050), which includes a power moonroof, keyless entry, auto-dimming mirrors, lumbar support, satellite radio, and ambient lighting. Adding the Convenience Package is necessary to unlock the Premium Package ($2,500), which adds heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, navigation with traffic updates and speed limit information, Apple CarPlay compatibility, a universal garage door opener, and BMW’s assist services.

Several of these additions are available as à la carte options, like the moonroof ($1,050), a heated steering wheel ($190), heated front seats ($500), and navigation ($1,700). Other options include leather upholstery ($1,450), wireless charging and a Wi-Fi hotspot ($500), a Harman Kardon surround sound ($875), adaptive LED headlights ($800), adaptive cruise control ($1,200), and an active parking assistant ($200). Several of these options require the Convenience Package as a prerequisite. On the coupe, the manual transmission is a no-cost option.

BMW 2-Series


The sporty M240i starts at $46,795 for a coupe or $51,395 for a convertible. In addition to the more powerful engine, buyers get sport steering, an adaptive suspension, larger brakes, and 18-inch wheels with performance tires.

The M Sport Design is standard here (and the other two are unavailable), and all the features from the 230i’s Convenience Package are included as well. The Premium Package remains in place for $2,500, and other non-standard options are the same as on the 230i trim. Deleting the moonroof is a no-cost option.

CarsDirect Tip

Of the 2020 BMW 2-Series lineup, the M240i is worth the price premium for drivers who love being behind the wheel. The extra power and handling upgrades make for a truly special driving experience.
