Yet BMW was seemingly unsatisfied with the 365 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque produced by the turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six and replaced it with....a different turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six. The manual auto hits 60 miles per hour in 4.2 seconds, and you can slice that 0.2 second off that figure with the M DCT box.
Manual-transmission devotees will rejoice in the Competition coming standard with a six-speed manual, and a seven-speed dual-clutch remains optional for those without left-foot fortitude.
Changing gear automatically or allowing manual changes via paddles, the M DCT offers comfort, sport and sport+ "Drivelogic" modes to suit the road and your mood, and the same settings also apply to the power-steering - increasing steering effort automatically as speed increases, or according to your preference.
The cooling system from the M4 Competition has also been lifted and squeezed into the M2 to ensure that long stints of hard driving doesn't overheat the auto. This means 0-60mph comes in 4.0 seconds, with an electronically limited top speed of 155mph - which can be optionally increased to 170mph.
Without specifics on curb weights of the two models, as well as final drive data, it is not unreasonable to expect the M2 Competition to be quicker.
The wheels inherited a new design from 19 inches forged alloys and the breaks bigger at all wheels, having 4-piston calipers at the rear and 6-piston calipers at the front. The brakes are larger on all four corners and feature six-piston front and four-piston rear calipers.

Still, they drew up a missing person poster around the same time that police believe he was killed and shared it on social media. He said the victims in those cases matched the general profile of the first seven alleged victims, but did not elaborate.
Other visual changes include new M-style exterior mirror housings similar to those on the M3 and M4 as well as lightly reworked tail-lights, an altered rear bumper and, as standard in the United Kingdom, new 19in forged alloy wheels shod with 245/35-profile (front) and 265/35 (rear) Michelin Pilot Sport tyres. Steering dynamics have also been improved, with front and rear axles, as well as a carbon fiber strut brace borrowed from the M3 and M4. Door sill plates bear an M2 Competition logo, as does the instrument cluster upon startup. The grilles and the new front splitter are finished in high-gloss Shadow Line black paint which matches with the black chrome-plated exhaust tips and a dark M Competition badge. Both cars can be ordered from mid-May, but customer deliveries aren't expected until August.
More useful, there are now dedicated selector switches on the dashboard for various engine and steering characteristics.
The 2019 M2 Competition also gets new M Sport seats with a bucket-style shape that borrows heavily from motorsport and provides drivers with optimized support, while the headrests are integrated into the seat back rest. It is an improved version of the previous model.
The first things that M2 Competition drivers will spot are the red start button and steering wheel controls that allow direct access to your favourite driving mode.
The new M2 Competition is available to order from mid-May with prices starting from £49,285. The M2 Competition also adds parking sensors, and more optional active safety features such as pre-collision warning and braking, lane-departure warning, and navigation.
