First Look: BMW 2-Series Coupe Gets Updated for 2025

by | June 12, 2024

The BMW 2-Series has earned a special place in the heart of BMW loyalists as the spiritual successor to the iconic 2002 model. First introduced at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, the coupe got a major makeover seven years later —  and will get a notable mid-cycle update for 2025. Here’s a first look at what to expect.

The 2025 update of the BMW 2-Series brings new paint colors and wheels, along with interior upgrades and revised tech features.

While the long-running 3-Series may be the most familiar model in the Bavarian automaker’s line-up, it’s the 2-Series Coupe that sets hearts aflutter for many BMW purists as it is, in many ways, the true descendant of the iconic 2002 and 2002tii models of decades past.

After appearing in thinly disguised concept form at the 2014 North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the coupe went into production later that year. Several variants, including both the 2-Series sedan and the Gran Coupe, have followed. But the coupe remains the purists’ choice. A second-generation 2-door was launched in 2021. Now, it’s time for a mid-cycle update set to reach U.S. showrooms for the 2025 model-year.

While it retains the current model’s basic design and powertrain, there are some notable revisions coming later this calendar year. These include new wheels, paint colors and interior choices. From a tech view, the big news is the latest version of the BMW iDrive and its operating system.

What’s new

The exterior design is largely unchanged – but for new colors with the 2025 update of the 2-Series Coupe.

Fans of the 2-Series Coupe aren’t going to be taken by surprise. The basic shape and dimensions of the 2025 model go unchanged.

There are some new colors, including Vegas Red and Skyscraper Grey metallics for the 230i and M240i models, and Zandvoort Blue specifically for the M model. Frozen Pure Grey metallic and Frozen Portimao Blue II metallic, are also available for the BMW Individual packages.

New 19-inch wheel designs now are offered as options for all the various 2-Series packages.

One thing that doesn’t change is the standard 2.0-liter inline-4 gas engine making 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque.

Interior updates

The 2025 2-Series Coupe gets an assortment of interior revisions, including new steering wheels, seat surfaces and interior trim. But “the focus,” the automakers notes, “is on digitalization.”

The 2025 BMW 2-Series Coupe gets new steering wheels, surfaces and trim – but the biggest update is with its digital technology.

All models get a curved display with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a 14.9-inch infotainment screen that is controlled by both touch and by the latest BMW iDrive with QuickSelect. The underlying software is based on the new BMW Operating System 8.5. The updated technology can operate virtually all key vehicle functions either by voice, by touch or by the familiar iDrive control knob.

There has been a “corresponding redesign of the instrument panel” with fewer traditional knobs and buttons.
