The fans of BMW sports coupes can now start looking forward to its new M2 that has been on its way to hit the showrooms as a 2019 model. According to the information our team has hot and some recent photos of this model, it seems that you should expect some serious updates in terms of design as well as under the hood.
The 2019 BMW M2 is going to hit the market as a two-door sports coupe that will rather be a performance-oriented model than pay attention to exterior features as it has been the case with the M series. Speaking of exterior features, the new M2 might receive some subtle changes and refreshments, but you shouldn’t hope for any drastic improvements. The first important change includes its reduced weight. Namely, the new M2 should be 100 pounds lighter in weight than its predecessor due to some lightweight materials that the carmaker will use in its chassis construction. This will only additionally boost its acceleration, efficiency and overall performance. The whole vehicle will seem sharper, more sculpted and aggressive, especially in the front fascia. Its long hood will add up to its aerodynamics as well. You will notice a wider black double-kidney grille and its redesigned LED headlights. The front bumper will look sportier with larger air intakes in it. The M2 should stand on new 19-inch wheels and offer some new exterior color choices.
Some minimal changes and updates can also be found inside the cabin of the 2019 BMW M2. This coupe will offer some better designed and improved sports seats, similar to those found inside the M4. The interior of the new M2 will also provide some new color combinations as well as high-quality materials such as stitched leather. The innovations include the red starter button, but also some new buttons on the steering wheel. The driver will get an 8.8-inch touch-screen display with the latest infotainment system and features such as satellite navigation, dual-zone climate control, Bluetooth connectivity and USB ports.
The 2019 BMW M2 should keep the well-known 3.0-liter V6, but with a single turbo, the so-called S55. It will be more similar to engine options found under the hood of the M3 and M4 models. Instead of the regular 365 horsepower, the new M2 will boost its strength to 410 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque. It will probably be mated to a seven-speed dual-clutch transmission. It has also been estimated that it will take 4.2 seconds to hit 60 mph.
2019 BMW M2 Release Date and Price
The 2019 BMW M2 should make its official debut at this year’s Beijing Auto Show, but it will probably hit the market in the second half of 2018. The price of this sports coupe has been estimated at $54,495.
