For 2018, the entire BMW 2-Series lineup will get a series of updates that include a couple of brand-new colors, brand-new wheels, and revised interior and exterior looks. These changes will all make their method to the M240i, the 2-Series’ resident midrange efficiency model that sits just below the M2.
2018 BMW M240 Design
Discovering the updates to the M240i’s exterior will take a careful examination, but the greatest modifications are the brand-new, basic bi-LED headlights that feature flat-bottomed headlights tubes surrounded by daytime running light halos. Requirement LED taillights shake things up a bit, as do its 3 brand-new color options: Mediterranean Blue Metallic, Seaside Blue Metallic, and Sunset Orange. Rounding out the modifications are new 18-inch M Double-Spoke Bi-Color wheels.
The interior updates are a little bit more obvious, but they’re still subtle at best. They consist of a redesigned and more driver-focused cockpit console, a high-gloss-black-finished center stack, covered cup holders in the center storage compartment, and upgraded air conditioning unit vents.
Besides the new basic wheels, the rest of the standard features on the M240i need to bring into the brand-new year. These include efficiency summer season tires, an adaptive suspension, variable-ratio steering, performance brakes, a sport exhaust system, the Shadowline body set, a sunroof, aluminum interior trim, an M Sport steering wheel, and more.
2018 BMW M240 Engine
Under its hood, the 2018 M240i will stay completely the same. It will consist of a 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that will inject 335 horsepower and 369 pound-feet of torque. This power will head through an eight-speed Steptronic transmission that will deliver it to the rear wheels as standard. Optionally, purchasers can include xDrive all-wheel drive.
2018 BMW M240 Safety
The current 2-Series is an IIHS Top Safety Pick Plus, thanks to its good rankings in all the significant crash tests and its advanced forward-collision mitigation system. The latter is, naturally, a choice, as are front and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, and lane-departure caution. The rankings and features should continue the same in 2018.
2018 BMW M240 Release Date and Price
BMW has actually revealed the M240i will hit showrooms in July 2017. Given its changes are so little, we expect to see only very little pricing modifications from the present model, which ranges from $45,445 to $52,045.
Secret competitors for the M240i include the Audi S3 and the Mercedes-AMG CLA 45.
