BMW India has launched the new M2 Competition in the country, at Rs 79.9 lakh ex-showroom (India). 'Bimmer fans' were waiting for the BMW M2 to launch in India, for a very long time. The M2 is the cheapest car from BMW's 'M' division and also the best 'M car' (as enthusiasts say).

The BMW M2 is now available in India, as well as on other markets, only in the Competition package. In fact, the new BMW M2 Competition is "more M than ever" since it uses a whole range of performance components supplied by the brand's ‘M-Sport' division.

The design of the new BMW M2 Competition is sportier compared to the now-discontinued regular version. The car has got a black theme overall and it certainly looks performance-ready. As an additional plus, India-spec M2 also gets an adjustable sports exhaust as standard.

Powering the BMW M2 Competition is a 3.0-litre twin-turbocharged straight-six engine which makes 405bhp and 550Nm of torque. The M2 Competition sold in India will come only with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission, while the ones sold outside can be opted with a six-speed manual too. All the power is sent to the rear wheels.

The new BMW M2 Competition can do a 0-100km/h sprint in 4.2 seconds. The top speed, on the other hand, can cross 250km/h. The short wheelbase and the 50:50 weight distribution further make it an agile sportscar.

In India, the BMW M2 Competition rivals the Porsche Cayman S, Ford Mustang, Mercedes-AMG SLC43 and the Audi RS5. All its rivals come at a higher price point and they indirectly make the M2 Competition, quite a value-for-money sportscar.

Thoughts On The New BMW M2 Competition

The most affordable ‘M car' is also called the best ‘M car', due to the raw nature of the BMW M2. Purists say that the BMW M2 is the closest thing you can get to the driver-focussed BMW cars of the past, such as the E30 M3, E36 M3 or the 1 Series Coupe. What do you think of the new BMW M2 Competition — the sportscar which Indian petrolheads were waiting for?
