2020 BMW 2 Series M240i xDrive Consumer Reviews
Amazing blend of comfort and sport. Very fast. But smooth. Fantastic seats. Handling is impeccable. And it comes without the dreaded run-flats. My only peeve is the electric steering. Although not entirely horrible, drive a BMW 135 MSport, with the old hydraulic steering, and you will wonder what the heck BMW was thinking with this crappy electronic steering. BMW should keep the hydraulic steering, or at least give it a bit of road feel like Mazda and Porsche do. But this is a rather minor twit. The car, literally, is simply fantastic. This is my 12th BMW, and the best one yet. My wife drives a 2019 X3M40i with essentially the same engine, but the M240i is far superior. It has a drastically better ride, handles better, and is simply more fun. Oh, another small twit, BMW changed the Harman Kardon stereo. I had a 2016 M235i convertible with the HK, and it had the Logic 7 sound effect. My 2020 M240 has the HK upgrade, but it no longer has the Logic 7. Some research reveals that BMW uses 3 different levels of sound systems, a base system, a mid-level system, and their top of the line system. The HK with Logic 7 is the top of the line, which used to go in the top of the line 2 series cars, but now they have switched to the mid-level. It is an okay system, but listen to one with the logic 7 and you can definitely hear the difference.
My first car was a '72 Z-28, Mazda Rx7, another Z-28, a Trans Am, and this is my third BMW. What a ride this is! Definitely beats them all. Had a 2016 M235i and this one is way better. Its the perfect size, handles amazingly well EVEN IN SNOWY WEATHER because of the all wheel drive, and accelerates like a rocket. Plus all the BMW electronic goodies, which are getting better and better. Hate to say it, but it makes my old Z-28 look like something from the dark ages. That was like driving a lumbering tank compared to this nimble little beast!
