2019 BMW M240 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 BMW 2 Series?

The BMW 2 Series is the brand’s entry-level car. It is a sporty two-door coupe or convertible with seating for four. Two models are available: the 230i and M240i. The 230i is powered by a 248-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine while the M240i gets a 335-hp, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder. Both versions are offered with rear- or all-wheel drive and either an eight-speed automatic transmission or a six-speed manual. Competitors include the Audi A3  and Mercedes-Benz A-Class .

What’s New on the 2019 BMW 2 Series?

Standard Active Driving Assistant includes lane departure and forward collision warnings and city collision mitigation. Parking sensors are now standard. The optional navigation system adds real-time traffic information and a one-year trial of Apple CarPlay smartphone connectivity.

What Features in the 2019 BMW 2 Series Are Most Important?

As most cars of this size have migrated to front-wheel drive, the 2 Series’ rear-wheel-drive-based architecture has become a more unique offering.  Available features include a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, a moonroof, wireless device charging and a Wi-Fi hot spot.

Should I Buy the 2019 BMW 2 Series?

As BMW’s lineup continues to expand and become more technologically complex, the 2 Series offers the elemental, well-balanced driving experience on which the brand built its reputation. The 2 Series also has a surprising amount of interior and trunk room for its size. Luxury competitors don’t offer much like it without stepping up to the next size and price class, but it is light on standard luxury features and can get expensive when optioned out.

2019 BMW M240i

I have always shown disdain toward smaller cars with smaller engines. The M240i changed my mind in a BIG way. The 3.0L makes more than enough power to propel this car to semi frightening speeds. The handling is spot on in or out of Sport mode. I'm 6'5" and 300# and I have enough room to drive comfortably. Purists will cringe, but I prefer the slick shifting automatic with the paddles....sorry. The exterior screams sports car and the interior whispers grand tourer. A best of both worlds car if ever I saw one.

Sweet ride!

Previous owner of Mercedes SL 55 AMG, Porsche Boxster718, and other fun cars! The BMW is just the right combo of style, performance, and handling to make it the perfect car for all of the above! It looks great, sounds sweet and is much quicker than I anticipated. I have driven and purchased over 40 cars in my time here and at this point I can honestly say it is my best car by far I have ever owned!

Great car - Quick and Super Fun!

I was looking for a small, quick, fun convertible for the summer. Of course, I checked out several performance vehicles but ultimately went with the M240i from BMW Northwest. I've not been disappointed ONCE with this little monster! Super fun!!!!
