2019 BMW M2 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 BMW M2?

The BMW M2 is a rear-wheel-drive, performance-oriented coupe that seats four. It runs on a new 405-horsepower, turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that works with a standard six-speed manual transmission or an optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic. Competitors include the Porsche 718 Cayman, Audi RS 3 and Mercedes-AMG CLA 45.

What's New on the 2019 BMW M2?

The M2's new six-cylinder engine is based on the one in the larger M3 sedan and M4 coupe but makes slightly less power. Other changes include new drive mode switches, new sport seats, bigger brakes, a new exhaust system, standard rear parking sensors, standard collision warning with low-speed automatic braking and standard lane departure warning.

What Features in the 2019 BMW M2 Are Most Important?

The M2 is the most performance-oriented version of the 2 Series, but we like that BMW still offers a manual transmission for shoppers who want one. Available wireless phone charging and Wi-Fi can help you stay connected on the go. Choosing the M Driver's Package increases the M2's top speed to 174 mph and includes a session of on-track driving from BMW.

Should I Buy the 2019 BMW M2?

In an era where performance BMWs have become increasingly bigger, the M2 recalls earlier M cars with its small size. Even though the focus is squarely on performance, the M2 comes with expected luxury and technology features. If the price doesn't scare you away and you're a fan of compact performance cars, the M2 is worth a test drive.

The most fun possible in a car today

Unless you have to go to Home Depot and buy toilets or staples for two printers, you will absolutely love the way the m2c drives. So much fun.

5.0

I bought this exact car yesterday! Sorry boys

The power behind this car is stunning. The small size allows you to whip it around vigorously. Smooth manual shifting. Twin turbo upgrade from the previous single turbo in the older m2. I could go on & on. It’s a certified stunner

5.0

Fun to Drive - So much power!

I love everything about this car! I want to drive all the time! It is sleek, and so, so fast! Nothing disappointing about this car!
