The BMW M2 is one of the smallest high-performance vehicles from a German manufacturer.
It has been rated as one of the most exciting vehicles in its price range. The 2017 version, which is set to be launched in the United States soon, has just been priced. It will arrive at the dealerships later this year with a price of $52,695. The price includes a destination charge of $995. The 2017 BMW M2 has the potential to be one of the most wanted in the United States due to its excellent mix of features, handling, and a great motor.
One of the most interesting elements about the upcoming 2017 BMW M2 is that the vehicle does not feature any increase in prices. The starting price is the same as that of the 2016 version, but BMW would have been criticized for any price increase. This is largely because the 2017 BMW M2 does not come with a lot of variations when compared with the 2017 version. Only a few aspects have been added in the form of an executive package. Opting for this package enables the car with Wi-Fi hotspot, wireless charging, improved Bluetooth and USB behavior.
A key competitor for the likes of the Porsche Cayman, Audi TTS, and Mercedes Benz CLA 45 AMG, this high-performance coupe is considered as one of the best among these vehicles. Even though it may not have the modern interiors of the Mercedes Benz CLA 45 AMG or the Audi TTS, the 2017 BMW M2 makes up for it with a supremely well laid out and thoughtful cabin. The handling characteristics combined with the gem of a 3-liter engine make it a must have for enthusiasts. The in-line six-cylinder engine comes with 365 bhp along with 343 lb ft of torque.
Even though the vehicle has such massive power at its disposal, it still comes with a stop start function designed to maximize fuel economy even in city driving conditions. Many BMW users have found this feature to be an annoyance rather than a convenience. Aside from the standard set of aspects in terms of drivetrain, the 2017 BMW M2 comes with the option of going between a seven speed dual clutch gearbox or the old-fashioned six speed manual. The latter is the standard option available on the 2017 BMW M2 with customers having to pay a little extra for the dual clutch gearbox.
