This car has always been on the forefront of innovation as it promotes so many improvements. The M2 continues to be rear-drive while also generating twin-turbo straight-six that generates about 453 horsepower along with a standard manual transmission or a possible eight-speed automatic. Whichever you prefer, it seems to be the most ideal sale when it starts up at $63,195. The M2 itself is likely to cost beyond the M2 Competition back in 2021. In addition to that, the M2 isn’t necessarily holding a new grille that comes with a huge M3 Sedan or an M4 Coupe. The choice on BMW’s part to send the second-generation M2 a far more traditional variation of the kidney grille could very well be a singular way to create a more pure choice. One thing is for sure, the M2 is much stronger than it’s past variations as it still shares parts with the M3 and the M4 as it is likely to be a smash hit.
The M2 has not been based on anything similar to the two-door BMW 2-Series, in which case, it had been designed with much larger dimensions than what had existed before. The Transitive Property actually continues to display a wider wheelbase that stretches from about 106.0 to 108.1 inches. All of the length stretching from 176.2 to 180.3 inches. All in comparison to the predecessor, where there had been increases of 2.1 and 4.1 inches. The M2 sat 0.3 inch lower than and measures 1.3 inches wide. The track width has grown by 1.5 inches up front as well as 0.2 inch in the back. This all matching the M4, according to the second-generations’ curb weight being between 3814 pounds and 3867 pounds.
This BMW means Business!
BMW claims that this powertrain is capable of launching the M2 to 60 mph in as little as 3.9 seconds when equipped with the optional eight-speed automatic; ordering the standard six-speed manual transmission will result in a slightly slower 4.1-second result in the same metric, the company says. These estimates are likely conservative as the previous-generation M2 Competition, which made only 405 horsepower, managed a 3.9-second 60-mph time at our test track. Of course, it wouldn’t be an M car without a specially tuned suspension and various other chassis enhancements that help it to be the quickest version of the 2-series to circle a racetrack
Inside, the M2 features the same layout as the regular 2-series coupe. Passenger space is plentiful for front-seat riders but those relegated to the rear may be wishing you had sprung for a 3-series sedan. The design is racy and the front seats feature dramatic bolstering and light-up M logos.
