The 2023 BMW 2 Series is here and it’s really customizable, especially if you’re into high-performance luxury cars. You have two cool options, the 230i and the M240i, which are pretty different in terms of power. But no matter which one you choose, you can jazz it up with better wheels, and brakes, and even control how your car steers. The 2 Series is more about performance than space, so it might feel a bit tight on the inside, but it makes the car lighter and faster. So if you’re all about the fun of driving and don’t mind a smaller car, the 2 Series could be your next ride.
BMW’s 2023 2 Series have arrived, offering some of the most customizations in the high-performance luxury-coupe market. While the full suite of options is almost limitless, we’ll take you through several of the most commonly recommended features, so you can properly fine-tune your new BMW 2 Series — 2023’s most accessible luxury BMWs.
Small Adjustments for Big Performance With the 2023 2 Series
The first thing we point out to customers is the wide difference in power levels between the most popular 2 Series options, the 230i and M240i. Respectively:
- BMW 230i: 255-hp 2.0L four-cylinder turbo
- BMW M240i: 382-hp 3.0L inline-six turbo
However, we’re just as quick to point out their numerous other features that make for an enjoyable, heart-thumping driving experience either way you go. For instance, just a few tweaks can provide the 230i with extremely respectable performance. To get the most from it, Expand your drivetrain choices with two new vehicles: the AWD 230i xDrive Coupe and the rear-wheel drive M240i Coupe with Dynamic Handling and M Sport package upgrades, complete with:
- Bigger wheels & higher-traction tires
- Stronger brakes
- Variable-ratio steering
- Stiffer suspension
- Computer-controlled rear differential
The M240i, on the other hand, sports all the above features and more, being deeper in the M-series lineage — or perhaps something like a close cousin to it. Although both 2 Series don a more modest exterior (a blessing for those keeping an innocuous profile), the M240i smashes the 4-second mark in 0–60 tests. A remarkable feat for an MSRP of about $50k (the 230i starts at well under $40k).
Part of this exceptional performance-for-value is due to the 2-series’ classic-coupe dimensions. Being a deliberate blend of sport and sedan, the 2023 2 Series leans more toward performance than last year’s models. This means less interior space than other luxury BMW options, but it obviously cuts weight and improves performance. Whether it’s a worthwhile trade-off is up to you.
It’s why Braman BMW has the widest range of new BMWs to choose from, allowing you to select between higher class, greater performance, or somewhere in the middle.
