New for 2019

The 2019 BMW M2 is now available only in M2 Competition guise, featuring more power and better handling than its predecessor.

Trim Levels (Interior and Exterior Options)

The 2019 M2 Competition is available in a single loaded trim. Standard features include LED headlights, 19-inch alloy wheels, 14-way adjustable front sport seats, leather upholstery, a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system, Bluetooth, BMW's iDrive interface with an 8.8-inch screen, navigation, a rearview camera, keyless entry/start, automatic climate control, and interior ambient lighting. Options include the Executive package, which adds a wireless charging pad, heated steering wheel, adaptive headlights, and automatic high beams. A moonroof is a standalone option.

Performance and Fuel Economy

The 2019 BMW M2 Competition is powered by a 3.0-liter twin-turbo I-6 with 405 hp and 406 lb-ft of torque. A six-speed manual comes standard and a seven-speed twin-clutch automatic transmission is optional. EPA fuel economy figures are 18/25 mpg city/highway for the manual and 17/23 mpg with the automatic.

Safety

The 2 Series, the car the M2 is based on, has been evaluated by the IIHS. In the organization's testing, the 2018 2 Series received a Good score on all crash tests except for the headlights test where it got an Average score and passenger side small overlap crash test where it hasn't been evaluated (Good is the highest possible score). In the IIHS' front crash prevention test, the 2018 2 Series received an Advanced rating after it reduced the severity of a 12-mph impact by 10 mph and a 25-mph collision by 7 mph (Superior is the highest rating for the front crash prevention rating). BMW's Active Driving Assistant suite of active safety tech is standard and bundles together pedestrian detection, forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and driver alert.

Utility

The 2019 M2 Competition has 13.8 cubic feet of trunk space and can be expanded via the standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats.

What We Think

In a 2019 First Drive, we said that the M2 Competition is better than the car it replaces, offering superior straight-line performance thanks to the more powerful engine and chassis that gives the car superb handling. At the track, it's easy to explore the car's limits at any speeds while maintaining plenty of confidence. However, the six-speed manual feels slightly rubbery and you can't defeat the automatic rev matching function unless you turn off traction control. In Comfort mode, the M2 Competition rides comfortably, meaning you can easily use the car as a daily driver. Pricing, however, has increased significantly.

Cool Fact

The M2 Competition's engine differs from its predecessor because it has a second turbocharger and was developed specifically by BMW's M division for M-badged vehicles.
