More Power, More Color for 2025 BMW M2 – But it Will Also Cost More Money

by | June 13, 2024

When it comes to the 2025 BMW M2, the active word is “more,” as in more colors, more features and, most important of all, more power. The little coupe now boasts the same horsepower – and only a bit less torque – as the bigger M3. But you can also expect to pay a little more money than last year.

Exterior changes to the 2025 BMW M2 are largely limited to new colors.

If the BMW is the modern reincarnation of the classic 2002 model from decades past, the M2 is today’s take on the iconic 2002tii. And, in keeping with that history, the Bavarian automaker is delivering some welcome updates for 2025.

For the new model year, standard editions of the 2-Series Coupe get only modest upgrades, the most notable being a revised version of the familiar BMW iDrive system. The 2025 BMW M2  will get significantly more enhancements, starting with a significant upgrade in power and performance.

And you’ll be able to distinguish your personal model, BMW now set to offer a full rainbow of 14 different colors. There’ll be a new steering wheel and a handful of other appearance changes, as well.

M3 Power

The 2025 BMW M2 now delivers M3-level horsepower.

The smallest of the BMW coupes, the 2025 M2 now gets a big performance upgrade, the automaker’s engineers finding a way to squeeze out an extra 20 horsepower from its 3.0-liter twin-turbo Inline-6 engine.

That adds up to a full 473 horsepower, the same as you’d get from the bigger 2025 BMW M3. The smaller coupe doesn’t quite match its sibling in terms of torque, however. With the eight-speed automatic it jumps from 406 pound-feet to 443. The M3 delivers a beefier 479 lb-ft. Meanwhile, the six-speed manual remains rated at 406 lb-ft for the coming model-year.

Even so, the stick package will get you from 0-60 in 4.1 seconds, a tenth of a second faster than before. Curiously, despite the added ponies and pound-feet, the 2025 BMW M2 with the automatic option stays rated at 3.9 seconds.

A new color palette

It’s sometimes referred to as “the tyranny of choice,” and those looking to buy one of the new performance coupes may find it a bit difficult to decide which color to choose for their 2025 BMW M2.

The new model-year brings a choice of 14 different colors. That includes a full seven metallics, three solids and another four from the Individual catalogue. These include new hues such as Java Green metallic, Voodoo Blue, Grigio Telesto Pearl Effect.

There are other, more colorful upgrades, including the standard black exhaust tips and the bright silver wheel option, along with black and two-tone hues already on the checklist.

Design updates

There are some welcome tech upgrades for 2025.

As with the rest of the 2-Series Coupe line-up, BMW is making essentially no other changes to the exterior styling for 2025.

It has come up with a few small, but welcome updates to the interior. That starts with a new flat-bottomed steering wheel available in leather or Alcantara. There’s also a new seat fabric upgrade available, Black Vernasca leather.

The rest of the revisions include new air vent controls and trim.

Tech Upgrades

Like the rest of the 2-Series coupe line, there are some more obvious upgrades on the technology front.

The M2 still gets a curved display with a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and a 14.9-inch infotainment screen – but both now can be operated by touch, voice or the latest BMW iDrive with QuickSelect. The underlying software is based on the new BMW Operating System 8.5.

And to help drivers navigate, the updated Live Cockpit Professional system adds an Augmented View. It overlays arrows on images captured by the forward-facing camera. Displayed on the driver’s gauge cluster, it makes it easier to figure out where to turn.

Pricing and availability

All versions of the 2025 BMW 2-Series Coupe, including the new M2, will be produced at the automaker’s San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico.

Production is set to start this coming August and the first 2025 BMW M2 models should reach U.S. showrooms shortly afterwards.

Pricing jumps to $64,900, a $1,700 bump from the outgoing model year. Add another $1,175 for delivery fees.
