BMW announces driveaway pricing for M240i

Driveaway pricing, added specification for BMW M240i as M2 Pure dropped

8 Aug 2019

BMW Group Australia has announced it is offering driveaway pricing for its M240i coupe, which when combined with an increase in specification, makes for a significant discount.


Arriving in the fourth quarter, the M240i coupe now comes in at $74,900 driveaway, having previously been offered from $79,100 plus on-road costs, making for a $5000 discount, not counting the extra charges associated with getting the car out of the dealership.


Along with the cut in pricing, BMW has added extra specification to the M240i, such as Jet Black bi-colour or matte Cerium Grey 18-inch M alloy wheels with a double-spoke design, hexagonal Alcantara and black anthracite upholstery, aluminium hexagon trim with black high-gloss highlights, a power-operated glass sunroof, metallic paint and wireless smartphone charging.


This is in addition to standard specification including adaptive M suspension, M Sport brakes, variable sports steering, sports seats, power-adjustable front seats with heating, adaptive LED headlights, an 8.8-inch infotainment system, a 12-speaker Harman/Kardon sound system, keyless entry and start, and ConnectedDrive services.


The M240i continues to employ a 3.0-litre turbo-petrol inline six-cylinder petrol engine, tuned to produce 250kW/500Nm, driving the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic transmission. A six-speed manual can also be optioned at no extra cost.


Accelerating from standstill to 100km/h takes just 4.6 seconds in two-pedal examples.


Six metallic paint finishes are available, consisting of Black Sapphire, Mineral White, Mineral Grey, Estoril Blue, Sunset Orange and Long Beach blue.


Part of the reason the M240i has been repositioned could be due to BMW removing the M2 Pure from its line-up, previously offered from $99,900 plus on-road costs.


The M2 Pure served as a stripped-out and more affordable version of the fire-breathing M2 Competition coupe, which is offered by BMW for $5000 extra.


While BMW has already revealed the new-generation 1 Series small hatchback and its new platform and front-drive layout, rumours suggest that when the new-generation 2 Series arrives, it will retain its existing rear-drive set-up.


BMW has made other moves in its sportscar line-up, with the new-generation Z4 roadster scoring a three-pedal option for the first time.


The entry-level Z4 20i can now be had with a six-speed manual transmission, offered at the same $84,900 plus on-road costs as the eight-speed auto version.


A 2.0-litre turbo-petrol engine is used in the 20i, pumping out 145kW/320Nm.


Through the first seven months of the year, BMW has sold 613 examples of the 2 Series coupe and convertible – down 29.8 per cent on the 873 it managed to the same point in 2018.
