2025 BMW M2 Adds Power and PriceBMW
  • The 2025 BMW M2 is scheduled to hit the San Luis Potosí factory in Mexico this August.

  • The entry-level M car has a new base price of $66,075.

  • The 2025 BMW M2 gets 20 more hp than the current models and brings the total to 473 hp.

Joining the latest 3-Series, BMW is giving its popular M2 a once-over for 2025. Despite the second-generation M2 launching in 2023, the team at BMW is giving it a light refresh. The updated, second-generation M2 adds some power, shakes up the styling, and lightly bumps the base price.

Under the hood is still the 3.0-liter turbocharged I6. But for ’25, the team at BMW massaged 20 more hp out of the I6, which brings its total to 473 hp. As for the torque, that’s limited by what transmission you want.


If you’re shopping for a six-speed M2, your I6 will send 406 lb-ft of torque through that manual transmission and to the rear wheels. Eight-speed automatic-equipped cars, with the no-cost Drivelogic option, cranks the torque figure up to 443 lb-ft.

While BMW doesn’t say where the extra power comes from, it does make it clear that the extra oomph shaves 0.1 seconds off its 0-60 mph time, bringing it down to a respectable 4.1 seconds with a stick or 3.9 seconds with the automatic.

Surrounding this updated powertrain is essentially the same shell, with some minor updates. New finishes join the lineup including Sao Paulo yellow, Vegas red metallic, Portimao blue II metallic, and pure grey metallic.

The M2 is also getting a black finish on its exhaust, and black badges that are outlined in silver. Rounding out the exterior is a new available silver finish for the 19-inch-front 20-inch-rear alloy wheels.

Inside, the story is similar to what we saw with the M3. The ’25 M2 gets the BMW Operating System 8.5 stuffed under the skin of its iDrive system. Digital climate controls are also new for ’25 in an effort to reduce buttons from the cockpit, BMW says.

With light updates comes a small price hike. For 2025, the BMW M2 will now start at $66,075, which includes the $1,175 destination charge. That’s up from the current $64,195 but also includes a $200 bump in the destination charge.

BMW says the updated M2 is going to hit the San Luis Potosí factory in Mexico this August, which means you should see one of these before the end of the year.
