BMW M240i 2022 review

There are more powerful M-badged BMW models however Rob Margeit argues the 2022 BMW M240i xDrive is the only M-branded car you'll ever require.

What we don't love

Does the BMW M240i look like a reliable car?

The logo located on the front of the car could be M240i and, in the its profile, it could look similar to the original 2 Series (2014-21) it replaces

The logo located on the front of the car could be M240i and, in the its profile, it could look similar to the original 2 Series (2014-21) it replaces

But the new 2022 BMW M240i xDrive has no resemblance to the model which came before it.

Its price of $89,900 (plus the cost of on-road transportation) cost is approximately 8000 more than its M240i predecessor.

The most significant change is the platform. While the M240i model was only rear-wheel drive in Australia The new 2 Series coupe sits on the latest model of BMW's Cluster Architecture (CLAR) platform.

What's the BMW M240i's interior like?

The cabin displays BMW's typical trademarks of solidity and quality. Our test vehicle was decorated with faux-aluminium embellishments.

The sports seats that cost $2000 that are finished in black leather with blue contrast stitching and the perfect driving position is easy because of the electronic adjustment.

The boot space is an incredible 390L. You won't find an extra tyre or wheel underneath the boot floor and, in fact, there's no such thing as the space-saving device.

There's no such thing. Instead the use of a puncture repair kit will help you out of a bind. Call roadside assistance.

What is the size of the display in the M240i from BMW?

BMW's iDrive 7 operating system that connects the M240i's informationtainment system to the internet is a maze of configuration.

Everything from the interior lighting and BMW's key digital which transforms your smartphone into a key that lets you control various functions.

Does the BMW M240i safe car?

The 2022 BMW M240i is untested by the independent safety regulator, ANCAP.

It's worth noting it was the case that Euro NCAP awarded the 2 Series Coupe specifically the BMW 220d - with a four-star safety rating in 2022.

What does it like driving the BMW M240i?

The complaints about the interior's flaws and niggles are put to place in the background of the real test of the endurance of the M240i. 

It's driven with BMW's turbocharged 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder that produces an impressive 285kW at 6500rpm, and 500Nm between 1900 and 5000rpm.

Should I buy a BMW M240i?

The M240i stands out for itself as soon as that the start button gets released. The car's deep rumble gives the first clue the car's unique.

Yes, the cost increase over the previous model is to be a bit high on the surface however, you'll receive a lot more M240i for the price.
