Small changes for a small car

  • The BMW 2 Series gets tiny tweaks inside and out for 2025.
  • New software, new interior appointments, and new colors make up the bulk of the changes.
  • Expect deliveries to start in August, with prices ranging from $40,375 to $53,275.

The BMW 2 Series is one of an ever-shrinking number of 2+2 coupes on sale today. While the 2 Series currently is one of the best in its class, BMW has seen fit to make a series of teeny-tiny changes to next year's model. None of the revisions to the 2025 BMW 2 Series coupe is a mechanical change or a redux of the bodywork, and while there are a handful of new exterior options, most of the newness is happening inside.

What's new inside the 2

First, there's an update to the iDrive infotainment system. While the 2 Series coupe continues with the threaded screen design where BMW sticks two large displays behind one panel of glass, the software running it has been updated to iDrive 8.5. The update adds a quick select function to make accessing the settings and apps you use most often easier, and it now includes a permanent climate control bar at the bottom of the screen. It's a big change that makes the system much, much easier to use. (We've already had the chance to try iDrive 8.5 in our long-term BMW i5.)

Other detail changes include standard heated front seats for all models, a new M Sport steering wheel with a flat bottom (standard on M240i models, but an option that comes with the M Sport pack on the base 230i). There is also a new ambient lighting effect around the central air vents. The 2 Series already came with neat light-up door panels, and this addition only luxes up BMW's smallest coupe even more. Last, but potentially least for once, there are new interior trim selections for the doors and dashboard.

Is there anything new outside the 2?

Exterior updates are even more minor. A newly available M Sport Professional package includes blacked-out exterior trim pieces, a rear spoiler, and darkened taillights and headlights. It also comes with M Sport brakes on the 230i models, while M240i models already get the uprated brakes as standard kit.

Lastly, there are five new paint colors for the 2 Series. Vegas Red metallic, Skyscraper Grey metallic, Frozen Pure Grey metallic, and Frozen Portimao Blue II metallic are available across the range. Zandvoort Blue, which was formerly exclusive to the M2, is now available on the M240i.

The full pricing run of all the 2 Series models (including destination and handling charges) are listed below. Deliveries for the new 2 will start in August of this year.

  • 2025 BMW 230i: $40,375

Edmunds says

The changes are smaller than you'd expect for a refresh, so maybe BMW has something bigger planned for next year.
