What You Will Like

The BMW 2-Series is a sporty luxury compact that competes with other small European cars such as the Audi A3, the MINI Cooper and the Mercedes CLA. The BMW 2-Series, however, is significantly sportier than its competitors and features better handling and a more hardcore, driver-oriented demeanor. Starting at about $35,000, the BMW 2-Series offers a nice compromise between an all-out sports car and a sophisticated German compact.

What's New For 2018

The BMW 2-series gets a nice refresh for the 2018 model year. The most noticeable change is to the front fascia where new LED headlights look sharp and provide lots of light for nighttime driving, while new LED taillights out back look sleek and modern. Inside, the dashboard layout has also been rethought a little bit, it now focuses more on the driver, while the electronic user interface for the navigation and sound system has also been improved.

Warranty

  • Basic Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Drivetrain Warranty: 4 Years / 50,000 Miles
  • Roadside Assistance: 4 Years / Unlimited Miles

A vehicle's warranty can significant impact your maintenance costs after you drive off the dealer's lot, and it's important to understand the different parts. Typically, a new car warranty includes a Basic warranty, which covers everything except the wear items such as brakes and tires; and a Drivetrain warranty, that covers all the parts that make the car move, such as the engine and transmission

Introduction

The thing about the BMW 2 Series is its size. It’s the original size, the correct size, before nimble small cars got big, like about 50 years ago when the truly iconic BMW 2002 ruled the back roads. So that’s what the 2 Series gives you, that the 3 Series doesn’t. More feel, more nimble, more thrill if you care to take it there.

The engines were new for 2017. The BMW 230i gets a beautiful 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo, while the BMW 240i outrageously and wonderfully gets a 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo.

Coupe or Cabriolet, either model.

The 2.0 turbo in the 230i makes 248 horsepower, while the 3.0 turbo in the M240i makes 330 horsepower. Two transmissions are available, an eight-speed automatic or six-speed manual. The xDrive all-wheel drive is available with either engine, mated to the automatic transmission.

There’s also an M2 model that’s pretty extreme in its capabilities, overkill for the street. But if you intend to use it for track days, it’s a winner. It’s still the 3.0 twin-scroll turbo engine, but built with stronger pistons and cylinders, to handle 365 horsepower created by more turbocharger boost pressure. The M2 rockets from zero to sixty in 4.2 seconds with a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, or 4.4 seconds with the six-speed manual. Top speed is 155 mph.

One thing BMW does to keep tradition alive and the price low, is offer a base model with fabric seats and few options, to go with the manual transmission. Bare bones, like the original 2002. So, fewer expensive features, but you still get the best of BMW engineering, engine, transmission and handling without having to pay for the luxury you can live without. You’ll have just as much fun with this car.

With rear-wheel drive and the eight-speed automatic, the 230i gets an EPA-rated 24/35 miles per gallon City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined. With all-wheel drive, the M240i xDrive gets 21/31/25 mpg, not bad for 330 horsepower and awd. And the 2 Series aced its IIHS crash tests.

Not much has changed for 2018, different options packages, a couple new colors, some other small things.

Lineup

The rear-wheel drive 2018 BMW 230i coupe ($33,150) comes with fabric seats with manual adjustment, and no rearview camera. Also available: the 230i Convertible ($38,950).

The high-performance M2 Coupe ( $52,500) comes with the six-speed gearbox, or optional seven-speed dual-clutch with paddle shifters. Standard equipment includes heated seats, navigation, adaptive cruise control, and electronic safety features, but still not a rearview camera. An Executive package adds a heated steering wheel, plus park distance control, automatic high beams, active driving assistant, and that rearview camera. The Drivers Package adds 13 mph to the 155-mph top speed.

Walkaround

The BMW 2 Series, as much as possible, carries the idea of the half-century-old 2002, not unlike the way the Porsche 911 hasn’t totally forgotten the 356 with its bathtub shape. The 230i is modern without being retro. Unlike the 3 Series sedan, whose four doors ride under a long pseudo-coupe, the 2 Series is the right size to fit under a roofline that slopes just right, to the trunk. A lip spoiler helps.

The 2 is clean and taut, with a comfortable greenhouse. It clearly reflects German design thinking.

But it’s actually prettier, definitely classier and more eye-catching, in the convertible. It’s a lovely cloth top that comes in several colors.

The M2 has all the right body clues, without being overstated or in-your-face aggressive. At both ends, between black mesh and big pipes, it looks ready for business.

Interior

For a sports coupe, the cabin is spacious in front, with a smaller version of the 3 Series dash panel, and a standard tilt-telescope steering wheel, to give the driver more arm room. There’s something we like about a BMW with cloth upholstery, but it is true that the optional leather is more in keeping with the BMW image.

There is a glove box, two cupholders, and roomy pockets in the doors. There are some hard plastics tucked in low-traffic places.

The rear seat is a long way from being comfortable for everyone, but at least there’s a function that makes climbing in and out easier. It’s particularly useful in the convertibles, whose rear seat is narrower to fit the top and its mechanism.

The convertible’s power top can be dropped or raised at speeds up to 30 mph, in about 20 seconds.

The trunk is 13.8 cubic feet, about average for a compact coupe. It’s not a hatchback (but think of the added versatility if it were). But the rear seat’s ability to split and fold allows room for cargo.

Driving Impressions

In the 2 Series, BMW offers three engines and three transmissions, which can’t be totally mixed and matched, but no matter, it’s all good. As long as you know what you want, because the three engines offer a wide power range, from quick to see-me-on-the-track. Also offered is a choice between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive. Open or closed top. So many choices, all good, as long as you know what you want.

We know what we want, it’s the 230i for its perfect match between the 2.0-liter turbo engine and the car’s size and platform. For its balance; for the engine itself. With direct injection, it makes 248 horsepower and 290 pound-feet of torque. It’s strong and fast all through the powerband, like a moving wall of thrust; and it’s super smooth. It even sounds almost throaty. We don’t need to look any farther. And we’ll take the eight-speed paddle-shifting automatic, since the six-speed manual transmission costs the same, almost unheard-of.

But if you now want to cut one second off the 230i’s zero-to-sixty time, for another $10,000 or so, there is the M240i, with its almost-masterpiece 3.0-liter twin-scroll turbo inline six-cylinder engine making 330 horsepower. Almost all of the torque is available low in the rev range. It’s the perfect engine for the larger 3 Series, but it brings more power than is needed to make the 2 Series an ideal car.

Speaking of more power than needed, we have the M2. If what you want is to get on the track, it’s about right, with 365 horsepower at 6500 rpm and 343 pound-feet of torque between 1400 and 5560 rpm, with overboost to 369 lb-ft.

Back to the real world of the 230i. The electric power steering is extremely precise but a bit numb. The optional limited-slip differential, giving grip to both rear wheels instead of just one, is helpful in cornering and especially in icy conditions; we’d spring for that.

But for real winter, you want the xDrive, even with the convertible. It’s worth it for $2000 and the couple less miles per gallon.

Summary

The 2 Series is the BMW to snatch, and the entry-level 230i is the best value. Excepting luxury, it does everything the more expensive models do. The 2.0-liter turbo and eight-speed automatic are flawless, always there for you. Like any coupe this size, the back seat won’t hold adults for very long.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
