2nd-gen BMW M2 to be launched in India in May 2023

The BMW M2 will be imported via the CBU route and will get a 6-speed manual gearbox as an option.

According to a media report, BMW is planning to launch the second-generation M2 in India in May this year. Bookings are expected to begin soon.

The 2023 BMW M2 was unveiled in October last year. It uses the same 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline 6-cylinder engine that powers the M3 and M4. However, it has been slightly de-tuned to 453 BHP and 550 Nm. The engine is mated to either an 8-speed automatic transmission or a 6-speed manual.

Like most modern BMWs, the new M2 also features a polarizing design. It has a kidney grille with horizontal slats flanked by single-pod headlamps and a chunky front bumper with rectangular vents. The car gets massive wheel arches and a completely redesigned rear fascia.

Inside, the BMW M2 comes with M Sport seats, with M Carbon bucket seats offered as an option. The M2 also gets features like a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 14.9-inch infotainment screen with connected tech and BMW's latest iDrive8 software and M-specific controls.
