The online configurator for the BMW M2 Facelift is now available on BMW.de. The life cycle impulse of the M2 was revealed last month, along with visual upgrades to the mainstream 2 Series models. With its new facelift, the M2 gets a suite of exterior and interior upgrades to keep it fresh throughout the rest of its lifecycle. While quite subtle, they make the M2 stand out even more.
At the front, new, full LED headlights offer a new hexagonal interpretation of BMW’s signature twin-circle design. Out back, the 2 Series gets single-piece full LED taillights with BMW’s classic “L” shape. Inside is where most of the changes are. The dashboard has been redesigned, with the air vents, control unit and audio system being all flush to the surface now.
The instrument display for speedometer and the speedometer itself is also presented in a new form. The previous dials are replaced by a display in the black panel design, which will be found in a similar form also in the refreshed 1 Series. The new solution is not to be confused with the multifunctional instrument display for the larger series, because, despite the Black Panel Design, it is only the lower part of the display which is completely digital and can be flexibly filled with different content.
The high-resolution 8.8-inch central display in the new 2017 BMW M2 now comes in touchscreen form, an upgrade given to all recent BMWs.
The BMW M2 Facelift does not change in terms of driving dynamics and driving pleasure, both the suspension and the powertrain remain unchanged. The straight-six cylinder delivers as much as 370 hp and offers a maximum torque of 465 Newton meter. The factory setting for the sprint from 0 to 100 is as before, depending on the transmission, between 4.3 and 4.5 seconds.
