All-new BMW M2 now in the Philippines

Finally, the all-new BMW M2 is now in the Philippines. Known to enthusiasts and Bimmer fans as the smallest M performance car in the range, the M2 has entered its second generation this year with a formal global launch in April 2023. And now, it has entered the local market with two variants to choose from.

The G87-generation BMW M2 is available in two enticing variants in the Philippines: the M2 Coupe Pure and the M2 Coupe Carbon. Both come with an automatic gearbox as standard, catering to the modern driver’s preference for ease and convenience. However, a manual transmission option, which should excite would-be owners who like to row their own gears.

The exterior of the 2024 BMW M2 is nothing short of spectacular. It exudes an aggressive charm, with a prominent kidney grille, sharp LED headlamps, and large central air intakes that hint at the car’s performance capabilities. The coupe’s angular silhouette, long hood, and sloped rear end give it a distinctive and sporty appeal.

Riding on 19-inch M alloy wheels in the front and 20-inch M alloy wheels in the rear, the M2 has an imposing presence on the road. The high-gloss black outline for its windows, known as M Shadowline, adds a touch of sophistication.

The rear view is equally striking, featuring a quad exhaust setup, an angular rear bumper, eye-catching LED taillights, and a modest boot lid spoiler. The M2 Coupe Carbon, with its lightweight, composite materials on the carbon fiber roof and hood, takes the sporty theme up a notch, making it the choice for those seeking a more race-oriented experience.

Stepping inside the M2 is like entering the cockpit of a high-performance aircraft. Bucket seats embrace the driver and passengers, with the M2 Coupe Carbon boasting M Sport seats made of carbon fiber and upholstered in luxurious Merino Black leather. The Coupe Pure, on the other hand, features an “Aluminum Rhombicle Anthracite” interior trim and Alcantara/Sensatec for a more understated look. Carbon fiber interior trims adorn the Coupe Carbon, accentuating its sporty appeal.

To ensure comfort, the M2 is equipped with an automatic three-zone air conditioning system, heated seats for the driver and front passenger, an anti-dazzle rear-view mirror, and a leather-wrapped tilt and telescopic steering wheel.

In terms of technology and safety, both M2 variants come with an extensive standard safety kit, including multiple airbags, ISOFIX child seat anchors, anti-lock braking, and stability control.

The 14.9-inch touchscreen offers smartphone integration, connected to either a Harman Kardon surround sound system or a HiFi sound system, depending on the trim. A wireless smartphone charging pad keeps devices powered up, while the BMW Live Cockpit Plus displays essential information on a 12.3-inch digital driver display, which also responds to voice commands.

Under the hood, the M2 is powered by the legendary 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-6 S58 engine, churning out an impressive 460 horsepower and 550 Nm of torque. This powerhouse engine sends its might to the rear wheels via an eight-speed automatic torque converter gearbox. The M Sport Differential optimizes traction, ensuring the M2’s performance remains exceptional on any road surface.

Stopping power comes from six-piston M-branded brakes, backed by an adaptive suspension system with electronically controlled dampers. The Coupe Carbon even offers the BMW M Driver’s package, unlocking a top speed of 290 km/h. Both trims feature the M Drive Professional, allowing for fine-tuned traction control and exhilarating driving experiences.

As for pricing, the BMW M2 Coupe Carbon is set at Php 8,890,000, while the BMW M2 Coupe Pure retails at Php 5,990,000. Each comes with a five-year or 200,000 km warranty, providing peace of mind for the proud owners.

For those craving the ultimate driving experience, a manual version of the 2024 M2 is available through special order, although the price remains was unmentioned during the launch.
