Costs & verdict

Everyday costs, plus how reliable and safe it is

Th BMW M240i is a sporty offering from a premium German brand, so you're probably not expecting a bargain price tag. That said, it's quite a bit cheaper than the larger BMW M440i and is also attractively priced compared with, say, the Audi RS3

The M240i is fairly thirsty and averaged 32mpg in our real-world tests. There is a diesel (220d) version of the 2 Series Coupé if you’re looking for maximum miles to the gallon, but BMW expects the vast majority of buyers to opt for a petrol. Diesel just isn’t very fashionable these days. 

Overview

The BMW M240i is a great all-rounder. It's fast, fun and – rear seat space aside – surprisingly easy to live with.

  • Savage performance
  • Fun to drive
  • Great interior
  • Rear seats are cramped
  • The 3.0-litre petrol engine is thirsty
  • Disappointing Euro NCAP safety rating
