The 2024 BMW 2 Series has taut styling and world-class dynamics. As the smallest coupe/sedan in the lineup, it’s priced and sized under the 3 series. That’s a recipe for back road fun at a reasonable cost.

So, how much can car shoppers expect to pay for a new BMW 2 Series, both at its base level and top trim with add-ons? Here’s how much a fully loaded 2024 BMW 2 Series costs. 

The 2024 BMW 228i Gran Coupe base trim

The base model 2024 BMW 2 Series— the 228i Gran Coupe ($38,400 plus destination)—brings four-door usability and sleek style inside and out. Not only that, but with a highly-engineered powerplant, it makes every drive more amusing.

Outside, the 228i Gran Coupe has balanced proportions and a sloping roofline. A wide kidney grille, narrow headlights, and styled vents give it a focused fascia. Overall, it’s elegant yet sporty.

Under the hood, a turbo 2.0-liter DOHC four makes 228 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. An eight-speed STEPTRONIC automatic has Sport and Manual modes. And front-wheel drive brings versatile performance.

Like all BMWs, the 228i’s interior blends luxury and sophistication. Power front sports seats are comfortable and supportive. SensaTec upholstery adds high-quality durability. Illuminated Berlin trim brings a low-key ambiance. And multi-zone climate control lets everyone set their perfect temp.

Another strong suit is the 228i Gran Coupe‘s ample tech features. Live Cockpit Plus includes a central information display and configurable instrument cluster. Navigation comes standard, along with a USB-C port and Bluetooth. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto also bring seamless connectivity.

BMW ConnectedDrive services link mobile devices, vehicle interfaces, and smart home technology. High-tech features include Advanced Real-Time Traffic Information, On-Street Parking Information, and remote software upgrades.

What’s included in the 2024 BMW M2 Coupe?

BMW’s Motorsport Division has a history of producing luxury cars with track-ready dynamics. From the exotic M1 to the legendary E30 M3, M cars are always on the leading edge of performance engineering. The 2024 BMW 2 Series version, the M2 ($63,200 plus destination), continues that tradition.

The M2 has blocky, edgy styling akin to a touring car racer. Flared fenders hint at its superb capabilities, and LED DRLs are modern and sleek.

However, the centerpiece of the M2 is its twin-turbo 3.0-liter DOHC inline-six. Producing 453 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque, it offers motorsports-worthy acceleration and top-end speed. Drivers can pick from a six-speed manual or an eight-speed auto with paddle shifters. A traditional RWD setup optimizes steering and handling. In testing, Car and Driver recorded a 0-60 mph time of only 3.9 seconds (manual transmission).

Additional performance equipment includes an M-tuned exhaust, monoblock brake calipers, and an Active M differential. M compound brake pads stand up to intense driving, and the Adaptive M suspension is smooth and composed.

The M2’s interior has a race-car feel. M sports seats use additional bolstering for high-G cornering. Vernasca leather upholstery adds a peerless fit and finish. And various M-specific design elements—like the seatbelts, shifter, and door sills—show it’s no ordinary BMW.

Technology-wise, the M2 has a configurable 12.3-inch gauge cluster and a 14.9-inch central information display. A Harmon Kardon Surround Sound system supplements the engine’s thrilling note. Lastly, cloud-based navigation ensures accurate directions on any trip.

Accessories and add-ons of the latest 2 Series

For a BMW 2 Series like nothing else on the road, BMW offers ample add-ons, accessories, and packages. Here are some of our favorites.

For a sleek street presence, BMW offers abundant paint options. On a 228i Gran Coupe, we’d go for Snapper Rocks Blue Metallic ($650). For a subtle, racy look, we’d opt for Black Sapphire Metallic ($650) on an M2.

For enhanced luxury and tech, 228i Gran Coupe buyers can add the $3,550 Premium Package. Highlights include heated front seats, wireless charging, and a panoramic moonroof.

For an M2 that looks ready to race, the $9,900 Carbon package includes an M Carbon roof, carbon fiber interior trim, and carbon fiber sport bucket seats in Vernasca leather.

The BMW 2 Series embodies everything the German company’s good at: driving dynamics, appealing style, and luxurious comfort. While the 228i Gran Coupe is a versatile four-door, the M2 is a performance machine that can hang with the best. Either one is a solid pick. But if it were us, we’d choose the M2.
