All-New BMW M2 Features
The long-anticipated all-new BMW M2 has arrived, and the compact performance coupé delivers unadulterated driving pleasure for drivers looking to enter the BMW M realm in a unique manner.
In true M Car fashion, it features a staggering amount of power and a driving experience to behold, being capable both on track and away from it. The all-new M2 is also available with rear-wheel drive and an optional 6-speed manual gearbox, which is sure to be lusted after by enthusiasts.
With a powerful, aggressive presence, the all-new M2 fits seamlessly into the Bavarian brand's new design language and is sure to leave onlookers in awe. Using technology fed down from its larger M3 and M4 siblings, the all-new M2 is truly next-generation.
Engines and Performance
Featuring an updated version of BMW's straight-six 3.0-litre petrol engine, the all-new BMW M2 offers instantaneous power and characteristics that really stand out.
Producing 454bhp and 405lb ft of torque, the latest engine greatly outperforms the one found in the predecessor, taking the all-new BMW M2 to 62mph from rest in as little as 4.1 seconds when paired with the 8-speed M Steptronic automatic transmission (4.3 seconds on manual variants).
Both transmissions have driver pleasure at their core, with the automatic transmission offering ultra-fast shift times and various shift modes, while the manual transmission offers an experience that is more of a classic mould.
When out on track, or on a quiet stretch of road, drivers are able to witness the all-new M2 in its purest form and enjoy the rich soundtrack produced by the M-specific exhaust system.
Chassis and Handling
BMW M cars are famed for their dynamic drive and unrivalled handling, and the all-new M2 is no different. Various features are in place in order to keep the car planted to the road, giving the driver maximum control.
Compact dimensions and near-perfect 50:50 weight distribution ensure the chassis delivers controlled and agile handling, while supportive sports seats keep your body in its optimal position. Active M Differential also contributes to the all-new M2's subliminal feel, seamlessly generating a locking effect of up to 100 percent if and where required to improve traction and power transfer during acceleration.
The all-new BMW M2 comes with a roster of other handling-focussed equipment, including adaptive M suspension with electronically controlled dampers, M Servotronic steering with variable ratio, and powerful M Compound brakes with 6-piston, fixed-caliper brakes. This truly is dynamism, redefined.
Technology and Drive Modes
Step inside, and the driver-centric approach continues, with BMW's advanced Curved Display feeding various readouts, controls, and setup options to whomever is behind the wheel.
The latest BMW iDrive system is housed within the large 14.9-inch control display, allowing you to adjust various settings and access intuitive applications with ease, while the optional BMW head-up display offers an augmented experience like no other.
In terms of driver assistance technology, there is an abundance to choose from, including Park Distance Control, Lane Departure Warning, Active Cruise Control, and Front Collision Warning. You are also able to adjust the all-new BMW M2's setup to suit your mannerisms, with setting options for the engine, chassis, steering, braking system, and M traction control system easily accessible, as well as ROAD, SPORT, and TRACK driving modes to choose from.
Once your perfect setup has been found, the all-new BMW M2 is fully equipped with track-ready technology such as the M Drift analyser and M Laptimer, allowing you to assess and improve your abilities.
