- Driving Dynamics
M TwinPower Turbo 6-cylinder petrol engine.
Six cylinders, 3.0-litre capacity. Unique agility and high everyday utility. United in one drive system that clearly shows its exceptionally sporty DNA. The M TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder petrol engine inspires with spontaneous response and high torque even at low engine speeds. The result is a maximum torque of 500 Nm and an acceleration that will steal your breath away. The characteristic sound of the BMW M240i Coupé also acoustically underlines the exceptional talent of its power unit.
M Sport suspension.
The M Sport suspension is characterised by sport suspension settings, and on cars with rear-wheel drive, it includes a chassis lowered by around 10 millimetres. It features shorter suspension springs and tighter damper settings, as well as harder stabilisers. Together these result in even more direct settings that facilitate a particularly dynamic driving style.
Variable sport steering.
The Variable sport steering with Servotronic creates a direct and agile steering response and ensures less physical effort is required to turn the wheel. It reacts to the angle of the steering wheel with varying steering ratios. This improves handling when driving more dynamically and reduces the effort needed to steer when parking and turning.
The intelligent BMW all-wheel drive system xDrive* distributes the propulsive force smoothly and variably to the front and rear wheels – for a bonus in traction, driving dynamics and safety in all situations. To further improve agility, this electronically controlled power distribution also counteracts any understeering and oversteering when cornering. * BMW xDrive is optionally available.
Steptronic Sport transmission.
The 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission permits very sporty gear shifts. Both as an automatic version as well as manually by selector lever or shift paddles – for comfortable cruising or a very dynamic driving style. In SPORT Mode and with the selector lever in the left-hand shift gate S/M, the gearshift sequences are designed for maximum performance.
M Aerodynamics package.
The M Aerodynamics package underscores the vehicle's athleticism and modifies its airflow. The package includes a front apron with larger air inlets, special side skirts and a rear apron with a diffuser insert. The tailpipes are chrome.
M specific design elements in the interior.
Exclusive M specific design elements in the BMW M240i Coupé bring together a sporty atmosphere and exceptional style. The ultra-modern instrument panel bears a digital model designation and offers an optimum overview of all relevant driving information.
Take a seat and take off: like every other detail of the interior, the ergonomically shaped sport seats with M model stitching stand for the aspiration to achieve supreme performance while offering the driver maximum seating comfort. The upholstered M knee pads perfect the level of comfort – on long journeys, in particular, they optimise the position of the driver’s legs.
Door sill finishers with M240i designation.
An unbeatable first impression: as you enter, the evocative door sill finishers with model designation set fascinating accents and leave no doubt as to which league you are travelling in.
BMW 2 SERIES COUPÉ M AUTOMOBILES: INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGIES.
Driver assistance and connectivity.
The BMW 2 Series Coupé M Automobiles not only score with their exceptional performance. They also offer a wide range of smart driver assistance systems, connectivity features and digital services.
Driving Assistant combines the Lane Departure Warning and approach control warning systems. When travelling at speeds between 10 and 60 km/h, the approach control and person warning with city braking function issues a warning if there is a risk of collision with vehicles or pedestrians, and brakes the vehicle in the event of an emergency. At speeds above approx. 70 km/h, the Lane Departure Warning draws the driver's attention to an unintentional lane change by means of slight vibrations of the steering wheel.
Concierge Service puts the driver through to a BMW Call Centre employee at the touch of a button. The employee can locate a particular restaurant, the closest cash dispenser or an emergency pharmacy and send the address details directly to the car's BMW navigation system.
Real Time Traffic Information.
Real Time Traffic Information (RTTI) collects current traffic information about motorways, main and country roads and the most important urban routes. It relays information about delays and dangers almost instantly. The best alternative routes are suggested accordingly. On-Street Parking Information is included, making the parking space search more efficient.
Preparation for Apple CarPlay®.
Preparation for Apple CarPlay® supports the convenient and wireless use of selected iPhone® functions in the vehicle. This allows smartphone content and functions such as music, iMessages/text messages, telephone, Siri, navigation and selected third-party apps to be displayed and operated via the vehicle's user interface and via Voice control.
