Despite being a performance car, the M2 does share similar practicalities to the likes of a saloon car. While your fuel economy won't be as great as a standard 2 series, the M2 is made for keeping a smile on your face, you'll soon overlook that minor drawback. It's a car you can live with daily, it's not constantly in race mode though it is always race-ready! Being an enthusiasts car you have the choice between a manual or auto gearbox, purists will opt for the manual but the auto is an incredibly good 7-Speed. No matter which you choose, the car comes with different driving modes which can differentiate the suspension setup, throttle response and most importantly - the exhaust note.
There's only one engine for the M2 however it's available in different calibres - if you opt for the Competition model you'll get an extra 40 brake horsepower. Take a look at the table below to see the performance breakdown:
On the inside, there isn't a whole lot different to the standard 2 Series - though the most eye-catching difference is the suede/alcantara material dotted around the cabin and the contrast blue stitching. Being essentially a range topping 2 Series, the M2 gets sat-nav as standard with an 8.8" display, Apple CarPlay and areas which were previously plastic trim are now carbon fibre (though you can revert this back to the standard Black Gloss, if you wish).
