2025 BMW M2 Gets More Of This, Can Do That Better

BMW added new wheel options and paint choices for 2025.

BMW has pulled the cover off the 2025 M2, and it’s a cocktail of raw power and refined sameness.

They’ve taken the already potent M2 and bumped its 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six up to 473 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque–an increase of 20 hp. Equipped with a manual transmission, the M2 now dashes to 60 mph in 4.1 seconds–a tenth better than last year–while the automatic holds steady at 3.9 seconds. Top speed remains capped at 155 mph unless you opt for the M Driver's Package, which lets you push it to a blistering 177 mph.

Aesthetically, the 2025 M2 looks exactly the same, but now flaunts 14 color options, a palette that includes three solid colors, seven metallics, and four BMW Individual hues. The exhaust tips and badges are now black as standard, and the wheels are 19- and 20-inch staggered setups, available in Jet Black, bi-color, or a fresh bright silver finish.

Inside, the cabin has been given a subtle yet impactful makeover. The new flat-bottomed steering wheel, with a red center marker, is offered in leather or optional Alcantara. The updated display merges a 12.3-inch driver info screen with a 14.9-inch touchscreen, running the latest iDrive 8.5. The touch-operated climate controls are a nod to modernity, but for those who loathe buttons, voice control steps in to save the day.

The flat bottom steering wheel is new.

The standard M Sport seats come in Black with Red accents on the Vernasca leather, but for those chasing something sportier, the M Carbon bucket seats are now a standalone option. Trim choices include M Fine Brushed Aluminum, with M Carbon Fiber and Aluminum Rhombicle Anthracite. The BMW Live Cockpit Professional system now boasts Augmented View, overlaying virtual directions on real-time footage to guide you through tricky navigation routes.

The 2025 M2 is set to launch globally in August 2024 with a starting price of $64,900, plus the usual destination and handling fees. Yes, it's a bump from the 2024 model, but with the added horsepower and refined features, BMW is hoping enthusiasts see it as money well spent.
