The new generation BMW M2 is expected to come with the same engine and transmission as BMW M4.
In a fresh social media post, BMW has once more teased the arrival of its M2 sports coupe. The 2019 BMW M2 has been extensively teased by the German luxury automobile manufacturer over the past few months. Prior to its official presentation on October 11, the latest official preview shows the car in a high-end configuration with M Performance components. In 2023, the product is anticipated to hit the market. However, the company hasn’t yet provided a precise date or timetable.
In the latest teaser picture, the car flaunts its rear wing, center-mounted exhaust tips, and bronze 1000M wheels. According to BMW Blog, the new M2 will come in at least four different colour options. Zandvoort Blue, Black Sapphire, Brooklyn Grey, and Toronto Red are these colours.
A new kidney grille with horizontal slats, flared fenders, a decreased ride height, wider tracks, quad exhausts, and square air intakes are some of the design features of the future BMW M2. The vehicle would resemble a scaled-down M4 in appearance.
According to BMW, the next generation M2 will combine a compact and lightweight vehicle with the M4’s engine and transmission. Despite having the same engine and transmission as its larger sibling M4, the M2 won’t be as powerful. In that case, anticipate the new BMW M2 to produce roughly 450 horsepower at its peak. Power could be increased by a CS or CSL derivative, although more potent versions probably won’t be available until approximately 2025. Additionally, when it comes to specifications, BMW Blog asserts that it’s unlikely that the new generation M2 would debut with an xDrive-equipped M2. In such situation, the car will initially only be available with rear-wheel drive.
