2020 BMW M2 review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2020 BMW M2?

The BMW M2 is a rear-wheel-drive, performance-oriented coupe that seats four. It runs on a 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 2020 BMW M2?

There are no changes this year.

What Features in the 2020 BMW M2 Are Most Important?

The M2 is the most performance-oriented version of the 2 Series, and 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. Forward collision warning with low-speed automatic braking and lane departure warning are standard. Adding 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 2020 BMW M2?

In an era where performance BMWs have become increasingly bigger, the M2’s small size recalls earlier M cars. 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.

service from Porsche North Olmsted is poor

Love the car, however be careful who you purchase from. Porsche North Olmsted is poor. They sold me a 2020 BMW M2 with 13K miles and it had aftermarket modifications to the suspension that voided warranty. Porsche North Olmsted did not disclose nor did they take care of the issue when discovered by me.


Worst car I ever owned and bmw management are bs

Loved it when I got it until their over rev ceased my engine and they said I caused it so I spent another $38000 more for a normal engine without bs extra rev bmw suxs


M2 Comp FUN!

Very solid, powerful and fun car to drive, especially with the six speed stick. Same size as my E36 M3! Don’t need back seats. Would rather have a spare tire and hack instead.
