The next-generation BMW 2 Series will arrive in Australia late in 2021 with more power, more standard equipment, and a more serious price tag.

Two models will be offered Down Under: the entry-level 220i with rear-wheel drive and the all-wheel drive M240i xDrive.

Revealed in July 2021, the new 2 Series isn’t related to the 2 Series Gran Coupe. Instead, it’s closely linked to the 3 Series, with the same CLAR underpinnings and the same engines.

BMW also says it harkens back to the 2002, the compact rear-wheel drive sedan that brought it back from the brink in the 1960s. Although it hasn’t been revealed yet, we’re expecting an M2 to follow the current M240i xDrive range-topper.

Pricing

  • 2022 BMW 220i: $59,900
  • 2022 BMW M240i xDrive: $89,900

All prices exclude on-road costs.

If you’re looking to get a more accurate idea of pricing, you can use the official BMW 2 Series configurator to build and price one in your own specifications. It’s also worth keeping an eye on the offers page for any deals BMW may have on at the moment.

Engines

Power in the 220i comes from a turbocharged four-cylinder petrol engine with 135kW of power and 300Nm of torque, good for a 7.5-second sprint to 100km/h.

It’s mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.

The M240i xDrive has a 3.0-litre inline-six turbocharged petrol engine with 285kW of power and 500Nm of torque, good for a 4.3-second sprint to 100km/h.

It’s also automatic-only, but has all-wheel drive as standard.

If you’re looking for more details on the engine specifications, you can find more information within the official BMW 2 Series brochure.

Fuel Economy

BMW Australia hasn’t revealed local fuel economy figures for the new 2 Series.

Dimensions

Overall length measures 4537mm, while it’s 1838mm wide and 1390mm tall, on a 2741mm wheelbase.

Boot space is 390L with the 40/20/40 folding rear seats in place.

Completely unladen, a 220i weighs 1490kg and an M240i xDrive weighs 1690kg.

Servicing and Warranty

The BMW 2 Series is backed by a three-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty in Australia.

Service pricing hasn’t been announced.
