RESTLESS. REBELLIOUS. READY.
All the power. All the handling. All the styling. None of the trimmings. This is a driver's BMW, with the BMW M235i earning a record-setting 98/100 Consumer Reports rating, the IIHS Top Safety Pick, and making Car & Driver's 10Best list.4 So whether you choose the BMW M Performance model or the 228i Coupe, the road is yours to do with as you wish. Where will you go?
PATIENCE IS A VIRTUE YOU WON'T NEED.
With a size that belies its incredible power, the 320-hp BMW M235i xDrive Coupe engine bursts from 0 to 60 in just 4.4 seconds. You won't have to be patient with your BMW.
A HISTORY OF RESPONSIVE HANDLING.
Dating back to the BMW 2002, legendary nimbleness finds a second coming in the 2 Series. The double-pivot spring-strut front suspension and five-link rear suspension are tailored to the precise needs of each model, and a wide stance makes both aggressively agile.
With BMW Online and BMW Apps-part of the Technology Package- you can configure and control Wi-Fi-enabled GoPro cameras from the driver's seat using BMW's state-of-the-art iDrive system and high-resolution screen.
Standard 8-way manual-adjustable front sport seats with 2-way power-adjustable side bolsters and 1-way manual headrests provide perfect support during the most agile driving. Indeed, they grip you while you grip corners.
BMW's 8-speed sport automatic transmission with paddle shifters brings sport-inspired gear changes to the 2 Series Coupe. But for the heritage purists, the M235i's available 6-speed manual transmission delivers precise, responsive shifts.
FOR ROAD WARRIORS.
BMW Dynamic Stability Control provides maximum traction when accelerating, locking the coupe to the road like a train on tracks. Traction Control can be adjusted to add a little play along the way, enabling a bit of wheel slippage for the feeling of sports-style driving.
230i: BMW's mighty inline 4-cylinder TwinPower Turbo. Displacing just 2.0 liters, this 248-hp marvel generates 258 lb-ft of torque from 1450-4800 rpm for potent thrust that kicks in right from the start. Lightweight and smooth-running, it incorporates BMW's award-winning High Precision Direct Injection, Valvetronic, and Double-VANOS technologies.
AN INTELLIGENT CHASSIS
Weight Distribution: The formidable power of the 2 Series owes no small debt to the near-perfect 50/50 weight distribution. Not only does it inspire confidence on the road with its balance and sturdiness, it delivers an incredible driving performance.
Rear-Wheel Drive System: BMW's rear-wheel drive delivers exhilarating power. Weight shifts to the rear wheels during acceleration, improving traction, while front wheels that are independent of the drive force deliver smooth handling.
Variable Sports Steering with Servotronic: Allows for direct and agile driving with minimal steering effort. Part of the Track Handling Package on the 228i and standard on the M235i, it reacts by varying the steering ratio independently of the current speed, thus reducing the necessary steering movement to achieve a particularly tight steering angle.
