BMW’s cheapest and perhaps best M car, the M2, gets a little less cheap but slightly more powerful for the 2025 model year. While the base price of $66,075 (including $1,175 destination) represents an increase of nearly $2,000 from the 2024 M2, that nets buyers an additional 20 horsepower, as well as BMW’s new Curved Display running the company’s Operating System 8.5.

More Power for All, More Torque for the Automatic

The extra power lofts the M2’s twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six-cylinder engine to 473 horsepower, up from 453 hp for 2024. With the six-speed manual transmission, torque remains at 406 pounds-feet, generated from 2,650 to 6,130 rpm. Buyers who spec the no-cost eight-speed automatic unlock an additional 37 pounds-feet of twist, for a total of 443; the higher torque peak is realized across a slightly narrower plateau, from 2,700 rpm to 5,620.

BMW claims the extra output shaves 0.1 second from the M2’s 0-60 mph time, dropping the manual to 4.1 seconds and the automatic to 3.9. Top speed with either transmission remains 155 mph, or 177 with the optional M Driver’s Package. Revised accelerator mapping makes for a more reactive feel in all drive modes.

Now standard on the M2, BMW’s Curved Display seamlessly joins a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster with a 14.9-inch infotainment screen under a single piece of curved glass. The company’s Operating System 8.5 allows drivers to adjust various secondary systems via touch, the iDrive knob or voice control.

The new display setup is accompanied by a new flat-bottom steering wheel with a red center marker. A leather wrap is standard; simulated suede and heating (with either wrap) are available. The lightweight M Carbon bucket seats are now available as a stand-alone option as well as bundled with the Carbon Package. While they’re designed to work with racing harnesses, they’re not aimed solely at performance, as they feature power adjustment and heating.

The 2025 M2 also expands the 2024 model’s somewhat limited exterior palette of two non-metallic paints and five metallic finishes — there are now three solid colors, seven metallic paints and four BMW Individual shades. Whereas the seven colors on the 2024 car were divided among black, white, gray, red and blue, choices now include Sao Paulo Yellow, Java Green Metallic and Twilight Purple Pearl Effect.

Regardless of paint color, all 2025 M2s feature black badging, exhaust tips, and wheels — though the latter are also available in two-tone and bright silver finishes.
