BMW Drivers Need M Sport Seats Or M Carbon Bucket Seats
The standard sport seats in the new BMW M2 and even other special BMW M infused models provide both excellent long-distance comfort and notable lateral support when powering through corners.
Their design includes model-specific touches in the form of the Sensatec/Alcantara upholstery for the seat surfaces and the embossed “M2” badge at the top of the backrest.
Interestingly, they can be specified with seat cooling as well as electric adjustment for the seats’ fore/aft position, tilt and height. The driver’s seat also gets electric backrest width and angle adjustment, complete with a memory function.
Meanwhile, there is also the option of newly designed and exclusive M Sport seats with even more pronounced side bolsters and contour lines around the backrest and head restraint in BMW M GmbH colours.
They are upholstered in Vernasca leather/Sensatec with perforated surfaces and can be ordered in either Black or Cognac. Their integral head restraints feature an illuminated M logo.
The M Sport seats likewise come with electrical adjustment, including for the height of the head restraints. Also available are M seat belts with a woven stripe pattern in BMW M GmbH colours.
The M Carbon bucket seats which is also found on the options list for the new BMW M2 – radiate pure racing flair as soon as the doors are opened. Also fully electric and heated, they feature integral head restraints and an illuminated model badge.
The Merino leather covering the seat surfaces increases comfort, while removable head restraints and a facility for adding a multi-point harness underline the racing credentials of the M Carbon bucket seats. The use of carbon fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP) in the structural elements of the seat cushion and backrest together with the cut-outs in the side bolsters and below the head restraints saves 10.8 kilograms over the M Sport seats.
The Easy-Entry function slides the front seats forward in a controlled movement when the backrests are folded, making it easier for passengers to access the rear compartment. The contours and integral head restraints of the two rear seats give them an individual-seat character, allowing passengers in the rear to enjoy a sense of sporty driving pleasure as well.
The rear backrest has a 40:20:40 split, allowing one or more sections to be folded down as necessary in order to accommodate very long items of luggage. When the backrest is upright, the new BMW M2 offers 390 litres of boot space.
Customers wishing to inject the cabin of the new BMW M2 with even greater sporting panache can opt for M interior trim strips in Aluminium Rhombicle anthracite as an alternative to the standard trim strips in Black high-gloss. If the M interior trim strips in Carbon Fibre that are also optionally available are specified, the shift paddles and trim on the M leather steering wheel will have a CFRP finish too.
So, when you visit your BMW dealer, you know what to tick on the option list, with budget permitting.
