A riot to drive, that’s the way we called BMW M2. In order to accommodate fatter tires, the car has been widened by 3.2-inch. You also got reworked suspension and this time it cast the whole focus on performance. The end result is a car with high performance although you may not compare it with M235i. That’s a different car we are talking about. Let’s say that the M2 is more responsive in terms of driver inputs. The car isn’t overly sensitive and drivers will find it forgiving and fun to drive.
People will find the car as a potential track vehicle with great balance and nice bargain. There is a turbocharged 3.0-liter engine with inline-six-cylinder inside, which capable of producing 343 pound-feet of torque and 365 horsepower. A standard 6-speed manual transmission is included in the package, which at the same time include downshifts feature controlled by automatic rev-matching. If one so inclined, there is also another option through which people can have seven-speed DCT (automated manual transmission). Speaking of performance, the DCT on M2 will help drivers reach 60 mph in 4.1 seconds.
As road car, the M2 isn’t quite interesting choice. Road noise can be intrusive and the presence of road noise is too much for some. There is no adaptive suspension though, which makes the car having a rather stiff suspension. However, customers will be likely forgiving the drawbacks, as the car is very responsive in terms of handling. The M2 (2016) is entertaining car to drive on winding mountain pass or on a racetrack. And there is an option with DCT if you found the manual transmission is too difficult to handle. That’s why the car will be appreciated much by any drivers.
