Report: The BMW 2-Series could gain 230i and M240i nameplates

Some BMW enthusiasts websites heard through the grapevine that the 2-Series lineup could consist of the 230i and the M240i, then the M2.

According to 2 Addicts and F30 Post, the new 228i and the M235i would get renamed as such to follow BMW’s current nomenclature shift, that also has the BMW 328i and the 428i becoming the 330i and the 430i while the 335i and 435i turn into the 340i and the 440i. If this were 1999, that would mean the 330i and 440i get power from a 4.0L engine or while the 330i and the 430i get a 3.0L unit. Well, this isn’t 1999 and that isn’t the case.

Instead, the engines remain to be a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo with the more powerful 3.0L TwinPower Turbo inline-six. Confusing, isn’t it?

Although official word hasn’t been confirmed, it doesn’t seem unreasonable to expect these name changes.
