453-HP 2024 BMW M2 Now In PH, Priced From P5.990M

The 2024 BMW M2 has finally arrived in the Philippines, serving as a bold entry point into the world of BMW M ownership.

SMC Asia Car Distributors, Corp. (SMC ACDC), the distributor of BMW in the Philippines, has officially launched the next-generation 2024 BMW M2 in the Philippines. As the entry point into BMW M ownership, the M2 has become a more capable machine whilst also offering more technology and creature comforts to the mix.

Two variants of the M2 will be sold in the Philippines: Pure (shown in Zandvoort Blue and Carbon shown in Toronto Red). Whichever variant you choose, the M2 comes with a bolder, more aggressive exterior design that’s characterized by numerous square shapes at the grille and lower air intakes. Speaking of the grille, it’s thankfully not as large as that in the M3 and M4. Elsewhere, the 2024 BMW M2 comes with staggered wheels measuring 19 inches at the front and 20 inches at the rear. These are also placed much wider than the standard 2 Series–50 mm more to be precise, and this is evident with its widened front and rear fenders that give the M2 a muscular stance. The rear end also has been revised with a new bumper, a more prominent rear diffuser, and vertical reflectors.

Inside, the 2023 BMW M2 is far more restrained than its exterior. While its design is largely similar to the standard 2 Series, the main difference is the implementation of iDrive 8 and its two curved displays as opposed to the standard model’s iDrive 7. The M2’s iDrive 8 comes with unique BMW M functions such as the Drift Analyzer and lap timer. Manually adjustable sports leather seats are also fitted as standard, which are wrapped in synthetic leather and suede.

Splurge for the M2 Carbon though and those sports seats will be swapped in favor of more aggressive M Carbon bucket seats. The carbon fiber framing reduces the car’s weight by 10.8 kilos apart from also making the interior look a lot sportier.  Furthermore, this variant also comes with a generous serving of carbon fiber inlays, along with a premium Harman Kardon sound system. From the outside, however, the M2 Carbon has a carbon fiber roof, while the wheel design is now in a two-tone finish.

Of course, the main highlight of the M2 is its 3.0-liter twin-turbo straight-six engine that produces 453 hp and 550 Nm of torque. It’s the same engine that powers the M3, M4, X3 M, and X4 M, but detuned to better fit the M2’s more compact dimensions. Power is then sent to the rear wheels via a standard-fit 8-speed automatic, which is your only transmission option in the Philippines. This powertrain is good enough for a 0-100 kph time of 3.8 seconds for the automatic or 4.1 seconds for the manual.

Other upgrades made to the M2 include a highly adjustable electronic stability control for varying degrees of wheel slip, while the adaptive suspension can be adjusted for track or on-road use. Even the brake feel can be adjusted with two modes, whether it’s for track use or comfort-oriented driving. An Active M Differential enables lock up to 100 percent on each side of the rear wheels.

What also separates the 2024 BMW M2 Carbon is the addition of the M Driver’s Pack and the M Race Track Package. The former mainly raises the speed limit to 270 kph from its electronically-limited 255 kph top speed, while the latter means that the two-tone wheels in this M2 are lighter than the standard ones, along with other weight-saving measures to improve the M2’s handling further.
