BMW Group Malaysia Introduces the New M2 Coupé

BMW Group Malaysia today introduced the new M2 Coupé, which now offers new interior highlights and advanced technology for connectivity for the premium motorsports enthusiasts.

The new M2 is breathtakingly more dynamic and prominent in presence, with a newly designed front and rear section. Apart from the modified front apron with large air inlets, the sporty coupé beams through the darkness at night with new bi-LED headlights in place of xenon units found on its predecessor.

The sporty coupe accentuates its pronounced appearance with M-specific twin exhaust tailpipes and newly designed all-LED tailights, as well as 19-inch aluminium M twin-spoke wheels, which are being introduced for the first time.

Inside, redesigned and illuminated is the new M-specific black instrument panel with contrast stitching which features the new infotainment system with live tiles and touch screen capabilities.

Your ownership experience is further enhanced with Apple Car Play, now available via the BMW ConnectedDrive Store. Aside from an M leather ‘Walknappa’ steering wheel with M Drive buttons, interior trim finishes in high-gloss carbon fibre communicates a sense of boldness synonymous to the M2.

The M2 continues with the 3.0 litre M TwinPower Turbo in-line six-cylinder engine capable of making 370 hp at 6,500 rpm and a peak torque of 465 Nm with a short-term maximum of 500 Nm using the overboost function.

The car also raises the bar in performance with a lightweight M Sport suspension system – made stiffer for better dynamism while adapting damper settings to retain ride comfort. M Servotronic steering with two response settings and suitably effective M compound brake are also included.

Other highlights contributing to the specific motorsports nature of the car include the dual flow oil return pump to ensure oil is distributed evenly throughout the engine during heavy acceleration, braking and on fast curves.

The electronically controlled Active M Differential, which optimises traction and directional stability, also plays a significant role here. It provides greater driving pleasure with the M Dynamic Mode (MDM) which allows for slight wheel slip and controlled drifting.

The new M2 is offered in Long Beach Blue, Black Sapphire, Alpine White and Mineral Grey. The interior and seat colour comes in Dakota Black leather with contrast stitching in blue for the M Sport driver and passenger seats.

The retail price (on the road, without insurance, and with BMW Group Malaysia’s 5 Years Unlimited Mileage Warranty with Free Scheduled Service Program as well as 2 Years/24 Months Tyre Warranty Programme) for the car is RM535,800.

With the BMW Balloon Financing courtesy of BMW Credit Malaysia, the M2 can be owned starting from RM6,188 a month in Peninsular Malaysia.
