Unfortunately, the manual version will not be brought in this time
BMW Malaysia recently announced the arrival of the New BMW M2 to the Malaysian market, with online prebooking now officially open.
There will be two versions, namely the M2 and the M2 Pro which comes with a longer list of features, with prices as mentioned below:
- BMW M2 - RM 598,800
- BMW M2 with Pro Package - RM 642,800
On the exterior, the new M2 measures 214 mm less in exterior length than the BMW M4 Coupé models and has a 110-mm shorter wheelbase. At the same time, the vehicle and track widths exceed the figures for the new BMW 2 Series Coupé by a considerable margin.
The large, frameless BMW kidney grille with its horizontal bars combines with a three-section lower air intake with almost rectangular contours to give the front end of the car a familiar M look.
Meanwhile the rear end of the new BMW M2 features a spoiler lip on the boot lid, vertically arranged reflectors, and two pairs of exhaust tailpipes positioned a long way in from the outer edges.
While the New BMW M2 features blue brake calipers and staggered Double-spoke style M light alloy wheels in 930 M Bicolour – 19-inch for the front and 20-inch for the rear – the Pro Package variant comes exclusively with the M Compound Brake in Red High-gloss and staggered Double-spoke style M light alloy wheels in 930 M Black – also 19-inch for the front and 20-inch for the rear.
Available as standard for the New BMW M2 is the M High-gloss Shadowline, with extended contents available exclusively for the New BMW M2 with Pro Package. Also exclusive for the New BMW M2 with Pro Package are the M Carbon Roof and M Lights Shadowline.
Powering the M2 is the same 3.0-litre 6-cylinder TwinPower Turbo engine kicking out 460 hp and 550 Nm, which is 90 hp more than the outgoing model. The engine’s power is relayed to the rear wheels via an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic as standard, allowing the car to sprint to 100 km/h in 4.1 seconds while hitting a top speed of 250 km/h.
Inside, the new M2 features the BMW Live Cockpit Professional with BMW Curved Display as standard. This new display combination consists of the 12.3-inch fully digital instrument display and the 14.9-inch Control Display. Coupled with the latest BMW Operating System 8 with user-configurable widgets, the driver will always have information displayed in real time.
Additionally, the BMW Curved Display’s integrated multimedia system provides Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity as well as two USB ports for data transfers and charging mobile devices. Meanwhile, the Remote Software Upgrade function ensures that the New BMW M2 will always run the most up-to-date software.
Other connectivity features include Intelligent Emergency Call, Teleservices, ConnectedDrive Services, Connected Package Professional, Smartphone Integration and Wireless Charging Tray. As for in-car entertainment, the M2 comes standard with a HiFi loudspeaker system, while M2 Pro is equipped with the Harman Kardon Surround Sound System. For added convenience, the New BMW M2 also features the Comfort Access System.
Also equipped as standard is the Driving Assistant, comprising features such as Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Warning, Front Collision Warning with brake intervention (collision and pedestrian warning with city braking function), Rear Crossing Traffic Warning, Rear Collision Prevention as well as Speed Limit Info with manual Speed Limit Assistant.
Alongside that is the Parking Assistant, which includes features such as Park Assist function, Active Park Distance Control (PDC), Reversing Assistant, Lateral Parking Aid and Reversing Assist Camera. Also available as standard is the Cruise Control with Braking Function.
