Car and Driver

Tires and Wheels

For better traction, the Supra has larger tires than the 2 Series (F:255/35R19 & R:275/35R19 vs. 205/50R17). The Supra’s tires are larger than the largest tires available on the 2 Series (F:255/35R19 & R:275/35R19 vs. F:225/40R18 & R:245/35R18).

The Supra’s tires provide better handling because they have a lower 35 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the 230i’s standard 50 series tires. The Supra’s tires are lower profile than the 2 Series’ optional 40 series front tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Supra has standard 19-inch wheels. Smaller 17-inch wheels are standard on the 230i. The 2 Series’ largest wheels are only 18-inches.

Suspension and Handling

The Supra has standard front and rear stabilizer bars, which help keep the Supra flat and controlled during cornering. The 2 Series’ suspension doesn’t offer a rear stabilizer bar.

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Supra is 2.9 inches wider in the front and 1.3 inches wider in the rear than on the 2 Series.

The Supra 3.0 Premium handles at 1.07 G’s, while the M240i Coupe xDrive pulls only .94 G’s of cornering force in a Car and Driver skidpad test.


The Supra offers a remote vehicle starting system, so the vehicle can be started from inside the driver's house. This allows the driver to comfortably warm up the engine before going out to the vehicle. The climate system will also automatically heat or cool the interior. The 2 Series doesn’t offer a remote starting system.

The Supra 3.0 Premium/Launch Edition has a standard heads-up display that projects speed readouts in front of the driver’s line of sight, allowing drivers to view information without diverting their eyes from the road. The 2 Series doesn’t offer a heads-up display.

The Supra’s power parking brake sets with one touch and releases with one touch or automatically. The 2 Series has a lever-type parking brake that has to be strenuously raised to engage properly. It has to be lifted up more and a button depressed to release it.
