Our Review

In our (humble) opinion, the 2022 BMW 2-series is close to having the perfect ride of any small luxury coupe on the market. That may sound like an audacious statement, but BMW took a bold step forward this year, giving the 2 Series a more aggressive look and improved performance from previous generations. Its turbocharged engines include a 255-hp four-cylinder (230i models) and a 382-hp straight-six (M240i) and are available with rear- or all-wheel drive. Though the manual transmission and convertible body style are now a thing of the past, the 2022 2-series coupe is just as enjoyable to drive and even more balanced and nimble on the road. With a slightly more aggressive look and fresh modern interior, the 2022 BMW 2-series exceeds expectations as one of BMW's most fun and affordable vehicles.

  • 230i 2 door coupe: $36,350
  • M240i xDrive coupe: $48,550
  • The 2022 BMW 2 series has a base price of $36,350 and includes a 255 hp and 8-speed transmission. For about $10,000 more, you can get the higher performance M240i with a 382 hp engine and 8-speed transmission. Dynamic Handling and M Sport packages can also be added for a mix of highly desirable performance upgrades.

    The 2022 BMW 230i features a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 255 horsepower and 295 lbs of torque and a silky smooth 8-speed transmission. The 230i runs a 0-60 mph in 5.1 seconds and a quarter mile in 13.7 seconds at 101 mph. The M240i features a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline six that produces 382 horsepower and 369 lbs of torque. The M240i reaches 60 mph in a smoking fast 3.6 seconds and has a quarter mile time of 11.8 seconds at 122 mph. The BMW 230i has optional 19-inch wheels on performance tires, upgraded brakes, a variable-ratio steering system, and an electronically controlled rear differential. These features come standard on the M240i.

    While not earth-shattering, the vehicle's interior features high-quality materials and overall is pretty nice for a sports coupe. It's been reported by many owners that the front seats could be more supportive. A set of analog gauges are standard, with an optional 12.3-inch digital instrument panel and heads-up display available. The rear seat is useless, although most buyers aren't purchasing a BMW 2 series to shuttle their kids back and forth to soccer games. Trunk space is also limited, but this is a tradeoff for owning an incredibly nimble coupe.

    The 2022 BMW 2-series offers an excellent infotainment and connectivity system. You can choose between an 8.8-inch or 10.3-inch touchscreen, steering wheel controls, and voice commands. Shortcut buttons surround the rotary controller on the center console, and there's even a physical volume knob. Every model includes a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and a 10-speaker stereo. You can upgrade to an optional 14-speaker, 464-watt Harman Kardon setup if you want more audio power.

    The 2022 BMW 2-series comes standard with various safety and driver assistance features. These include blind-spot monitoring, front and rear parking sensors, and a self-parking assist. The 2-series can also be optioned with adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology. The car has been crash-tested by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Key safety features include:

  • Standard forward-collision warning and automated emergency braking
  • Standard lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist
  • Available adaptive cruise control with stop-and-go technology
  • The 2022 BMW 2-series offers a limited warranty that covers four years or 50,000 miles and a powertrain warranty that covers four years or 50,000 miles. Additionally, BMW offers complimentary scheduled maintenance for three years or 36,000 miles. BMW's coverage is highly competitive compared to other luxury automakers and is a perk that Mercedes-Benz does not offer.

  • Limited warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Powertrain warranty covers four years or 50,000 miles
  • Complimentary scheduled maintenance is covered for three years or 36,000 miles
