BMW M2 | Unadulterated ‘M’arvel! | First Drive

The all-new entry point to BMW’s M division thrills and admittedly makes you question the need of an M4.

For

Chassis & Fun Handling, All-round Practical Coupe

Against

Imperfect 6-spd Manual, Heavy-weight, Mediocre Fuel Economy

Exterior

It’s the exterior design needs a special mention. It’s racy, pulled back, sits taut to the ground and has a retro-futuristic vibe to it - almost like a Toyota Supra! Admittedly the M2’s overall design theme seems a little less cohesive and will take some time to grow on you. The kidney grilles built directly into the front bumper, with no outline and squared-off openings on the lower fascia match similar outlines on the rear bumper – inspired by some sixties models but wish it would all have been a little less confusing and more appealing.
