BMW Australia has increased the pricing of the rear-wheel-drive 2 Series coupe and convertible by up to $3000, just one month after reshuffling both ranges.
In May, the 220i and M240i variants copped $500 price rises, while the automatic M2 Competition coupe jumped $2000. At the same time, 230i versions were discontinued and the manual M2 Competition coupe was reintroduced.
This month, the 220i coupe (+$1500) and convertible (+$2200), M240i coupe (+$2300) and convertible ($2900), and M2 Competition coupe (+$3000) have increased in cost again.
As such, the full-time two-door 2 Series line-up now kicks off at $56,900 plus on-road costs and tops out at $109,900 (see full pricing table below). It’s worth noting the range-topping M2 CS coupe will arrive in the second half of the year.
A BMW Australia spokesperson told CarsGuide no changes have been made to standard specification, as the company “constantly reviews its pricing structure, factoring in the exchange rate, inflation and changes to material costs”.
The 220i versions are motivated by a 135kW/270Nm 2.0-litre turbo-petrol four-cylinder engine, while their M240i siblings step up to a 250kW/500Nm 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder unit.
The M2 variants muscle in with a 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline six-cylinder petrol engine, with the Competition versions producing 302kW/550Nm and their CS siblings developing 331kW/550Nm.
An eight-speed torque-converter automatic transmission is standard in the 220i and M240i variants, while the M2 versions have the option of a six-speed manual or a seven-speed dual-clutch automatic.
