BMW M240i Coupe Automatic 3.0L 2018
“The BMW 240i is a sensible coupe that turns into a raving lunatic when you want it to.”
An ancient performance car recipe followed to the letter. Tradition holds that if you start with a small car, combine it with a big engine and season the dish with appropriately sporty suspension, tyres and brakes, the result is usually quite tasty. Based on BMW’s 2-Series baby coupe, the M240i features all the above in a package designed to bridge the gap between regular models and the scintillating M2 range-topper.
BMW launched its 2 Series in 2014, essentially taking over to the position that the 1 Series Coupe and Convertible held before. The M235i was for several years the most powerful 2 Series available, with its impressive 3.0-litre straight-six being the car’s showpiece. Since then, BMW has launched an even more aggressive version of the 2 Series – the 365bhp M2. This has left a gap in the range to invest more power into, which BMW has now done with its 335bhp M240i, and notice the slight name change.
The engine is still the beating heart and showpiece of the M240i, but inside it’s a BMW through and through, with its refined and plush interior, the M240i keeps the 3.0-litre straight-six petrol engine as before. This delivers 335bhp and 500Nm of torque, allowing for some impressive performance figures. Sixty can be achieved in 4.6 seconds, or 0.2 seconds more if you choose one with a manual ‘box, with an electronically-limited top speed of 155mph. For a naturally aspirated engine, it offers an impressively consistent power delivery, and is as happy on a B-road as it is on a motorway.
The car is handsome and doesn’t draw attention to itself. It’s fantastically capable at doing what it was designed to do: drive well and excitingly. For someone looking for a nothing more than a fun sports car with usable storage space, the M240i is the one you want.
