BMW India is expected to launch M2, the smallest ‘M Car’ in the country with the new ‘Competition’ package soon.  The ‘Competition’ pack will offer styling upgrades and a more powerful performance. Upon its launch, the model will field against Porsche 718 Cayman and the upcoming Audi TT RS in the segment. In terms of pricing, the new BMW M2 Competition is expected to be priced around Rs 85 lakh (ex-showroom) without options, whereas with options, the prices are likely to go upwards of Rs 1 crore. As for the launch, expect the new BMW M2 to launch in India sometime in 2018.

BMW India Aims On Doubling Mini Sales 

Under the hood, the BMW M2 Competition will feature the same 3.0-litre engine that powers M3 and M4 models. In terms of output, the high displacing engine makes top power of 405bhp against 550Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties on the BMW M2 will be carried out by a 7-speed dual-clutch automatic unit, while the 6-speed manual gearbox will not make it to the Indian market. On the performance front, the engine is expected to sprint to 100km/h from rest within 4.2 seconds while attaining a top speed of 250km/h. There is yet no clarity whether BMW will offer the M Driver’s Package in India that pushes the top speed to 280km/h.

Akin to its rival Porsche 718 Cayman, the BMW M2 will be rear wheel drive, albeit the latter will be a front engined model, implying a larger boot for storing luggage. In India, the BMW M2 will be available in five exterior colour options and a standard all-black interior trim option. Additionally, the model will pack standard M-Sport 5-spoke wheel along with optional 19-inch competition wheel. Aside from the standard seats, customers will also get an option for the M-sport leather seats.

Other bits, such as Apple CarPlay, BMW Apps, inbuilt navigation and a high-end Harman Kardon audio system will be available optional provisions. While the spare wheel will be a standard fitment on the India-spec model, BMW will also offer a host of ‘M Performance Parts’ in India.
