2025 BMW M2 Adds 20 Horses, Gets Slightly Quicke

Small tweaks to little BMW

  • BMW refreshes 2 Series

  • More power, latest iDrive system


The 2025 BMW 2 Series gains the latest version of iDrive infotainment and updates to the car’s cabin materials and wheels. The big changes, though, are for the 2025 BMW M2, which adds more power and more visual beef to set it apart from lesser 2’s.

BMW tweaked the 3.0L twin-turbo I6 to make another 20 hp, bringing the total to 473. Torque is 406 lb-ft if you get the stick and 443 for the stronger automatic transmission. BMW tweaked throttle responses and says the new model is 0.1 seconds quicker to 100 km/h.

The rest of the M2 is nearly identical. The bodywork is the same, but there are more colours. You can get silver wheels now, too. The cabin gets the same iDrive changes as the other 2s, and has a new flat-bottom steering wheel.

Changes to the regular 2 Series models for 2025 are small. The 230i xDrive and M240i have no engine changes, but BMW says it has altered the appearances slightly. We don’t see it.

The cabin of all 2025 2 Series models has a 12.3-inch dash display and 14.9-inch center screen mounted in the same bezel. It gets iDrive 8.5 this year, adding voice command operation of functions like climate control and even seat heating. There are fewer buttons, but BMW added vent direction controls.

2025 230i models get a new two-spoke steering wheel, M240i gets a new M leather wheel with a red stripe. There are new interior trim options including metal and open pore wood, and BMW has updated the seat covers to have four different colours of its fake leather.

The 2025 BMW 2 Series hits the market in August, starting from $49,300 for a 230i and $59,700 for M240i. The M2 starts from $78,300.
