BMW India could launch the new M2 next year

BMW India could launch the new M2 next year

BMW has recently launched the X5 M and the X6 M in the Indian market and going by a few recent reports, the brand is preparing some more M goodness for the Indian market with the all-new M2. Shown last week for the first time, the high-performance coupe model could arrive sometime next year.  

With its compact proportions and driver-focussed nature, the M2 is not only a successor to the old 1M Coupe but also to the original E30 M3 and the 2002 turbo. Inspired by old BMWs from the brand’s brilliant M division, the M2 shouts its arrival with the help of its large air intakes, muscular flanks with characteristic M gills, 19-inch aluminium wheels and M-specific twin-tailpipe exhaust system.

Inside, the M2 is fitted with a host of M-specific equipment such as the leather sport seats with blue contrast stitching and an M logo in the backrests, adjustable side bolsters and an M footrest and knee pad on the centre console for the driver.

As for the all-important drivetrain, the M2 is powered by a 3-litre, in-line six-cylinder engine. Thanks to turbocharging, this unit develops 370bhp of power and 465Nm of torque. The latter can be increased to as much as 500Nm in short bursts under the overboost function. When equipped with the optional 7-speed dual clutch automatic gearbox and with launch control engaged, the M2 can accelerate from 0 -100kmph in just 4.3 seconds. The 6-speed manual M2, on the other hand, takes 4.5 seconds. 

BMW says they have sourced a lot of mechanical bits from other models like the M3 and the M4. For instance, certain suspension components and front and rear axles for the M2 come from the latter models. Besides these, the car also features an Active M Differential and high-performance brakes.

BMW has announced that it will start selling the new M2 sometime next year in several global markets. The sporty model is now expected to be introduced here in India as well. In case BMW India decides to bring it here, the M2 will be seen competing with the Porsche Cayman and the Ford Mustang GT – a car that’s also expected to grace the Indian market soon.
