: 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.

What's New

Even though it was overhauled last year, the 2023 BMW 2-Series Coupe receives an updated dash that incorporates BMW’s latest infotainment system with large curved panels that house the digital gauge cluster and BMW’s upgraded iDrive 8 infotainment system. The 2-Series Gran Coupe carries over largely unchanged.

Choosing Your BMW 2-Series

BMW offers two very different models that wear the 2-Series designation. The four-door Gran Coupe is offered in 228i and M235 guise two-door while the Coupe is offered in 230i and M240i trim. Base prices range from $37,595 to $48,895.

The 2023 model year is currently available for order, however, the current lease deal for the Gran Coupe is not a very good value. BMW has not yet released 2023 pricing or specs for the higher-performance M2.

Engine Choices

The 228i is standard with front-wheel drive and offers an all-wheel drive system for $2,000. The M235i xDrive is standard with AWD, which further incorporates a mechanical front differential, as well as an advanced traction management system. The coupe trims are standard with rear-wheel drive and offer AWD for $2,000 while the M240i is equipped with a fully-variable sport rear differential.

Each body style offers two engines and while the Gran Coupe lacks the six-cylinder option, its high-performance engine features reinforced engine components, added cooling equipment, and an (optional) overboost function for the turbocharger (among other improvements) to achieve its increased power output.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Gran Coupe seats five and extends to 178.5 inches and sits 70.9 inches wide which places it on the shorter (six less than the Mercedes CLA) and narrower (0.5-inch less wide than the A3) end of the class. Rear legroom (34.4 inches) is on par while rear headroom (38.2 inches) and trunk volume (12 cubic feet) are better than average. Folding seats are standard.

The Coupe is longer (by less than an inch) and wider (by 1.5 inches) than the Gran Coupe, and for reference, about 9 inches shorter than the 4-Series. The Coupe is one of the few in its class that offers a back seat although only 32 inches of legroom and 35 inches of headroom are available. The trunk can swallow 10 cubic feet of stuff and the back seat folds.

BMW 2-Series

Safety Features

Both 2-Series models are equipped with automatic emergency braking, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection, and lane-keep assist. Adaptive cruise control is $950 ($550 in the Coupe) and the M240i offers the Parking Assistant Package for $700 which includes a system that remembers how to return the way you came (up to 50 yards), a surround-view camera, and parking assist.

The new Coupe has not yet been tested by IIHS while the Gran Coupe is a 2022 Top Safety Pick. Neither 2-Series has been evaluated by NHTSA.


The Gran Coupe is equipped with an 8.8-inch that features Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, SiriusXM, and plays through a 10-speakers and 205-watt sound system. A 10.25-inch unit is available through the available Premium Packages, however, it runs the previous BMW infotainment system generation. Wi-Fi is $500 and a Harman Kardon sound system is $875 and features 16 speakers and 464 watts of power.

The Coupe gets a new layout for 2023 with a curved 14.9-inch infotainment display (that carries into the 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster) and the latest iDrive system which puts it in line with BMW’s other new or recently updated models such as the iX, X7, 7-Series, and 3-Series.
