2016 BMW M2 Overview

Performance has become a byword in the luxury market lately. In line with that trend, BMW’s legendary M organization has ridden to the rescue, upgrading a selection of models to meet intensive high-performance requirements. Following up on the recent M235i, BMW elected to give its 2 Series the total “M” treatment, aiming to complement the existing M3, M4, M5, and M6—essentially filling an open-ended straight flush, according to poker-player parlance, in sublime M-level performance.

What's New for 2016

A brand-new model for 2016, the M2 follows up on BMW’s M235i model. The new M2 gets the total “M” treatment.

Starting with the basic M2 coupe, BMW’s M organization installed a striking body kit, including an enhanced front apron, with more aggressive air inlets. Accentuating the coupe’s profile are wing extensions, rocker-panel extensions, and 19-inch aluminum wheels. An M spoiler goes out back, along with a large rear diffuser and high-gloss M-type exhaust outlets.

Inside, sport seats are upholstered in Dakota leather with blue contrast stitching and adjustable bolsters. An M logo adorns the backrests, while the driver gets an M-type footrest and kneepad, as well as M2-specific instruments and steering wheel.

Choosing Your BMW M2

Beneath the hood, a 3-liter M TwinPower Turbo inline six-cylinder engine generates 365 horsepower at 6500 rpm, and 343 pound-feet of torque—all the way from 1,400 to 5,560 rpm. When pushing hard on the gas, a temporary overboost function can push torque output to 369 pound-feet, up to 4,750 rpm. That’s 70 more pound-feet than the previous-generation M3 model.

The standard six-speed manual transmission features automatic rev-matching, and sends power to the rear wheels. Acceleration to 60 mph takes just 4.4 seconds. With the optional quick-shifting M Double-Clutch automatic transmission, 0-60 mph times drops to 4.2 seconds.

Built with a wider track, the M2 uses a lightweight aluminum suspension. New M-developed electric power steering aims to provide precise feel. Front brake rotors are 15-inch, gripped by four-piston calipers. M Dynamic Mode is said to counteract both oversteer and understeer. Also included is a fully variable Active M differential. An automatic Start/Stop function is standard.

Standard equipment includes power heated front sport seats with lumbar support, Dakota leather upholstery, a multifunction steering wheel, keyless entry, an adjustable front armrest, carbon fiber interior trim, auto-dimming inside and outside mirrors, automatic headlights, rain sensor, universal garage-door opener, 19-inch black double-spoke alloy wheels. Also standard are xenon headlights, adaptive light control, automatic climate control, dynamic cruise control, navigation, satellite radio, Harman/Kardon premium sound, real-time traffic information, BMW Online and BMW Apps, and Shadowline exterior trim.

An optional Executive Package ($1,250) includes a heated steering wheel, rearview camera, rear park distance control, automatic high beams, active driving assistant, and speed-limit information. The double-clutch transmission with Drivelogic adds $2,900.

CarsDirect Tip

The basic 2 Series has been called the most traditional-type BMW on the market nowadays and the M2 adds to the coupe's visceral appeal. Priced at $51,700 (plus ($995 destination charge), the M2 is scheduled to go on sale in April 2016.
