2020 BMW 2 Series vs. 2020 BMW M2 Competition: Features & Technology

When you climb inside, a few sporty accents set the 2020 BMW M2 Competition apart from its 2 Series sibling. You may also notice a few upgraded features, like standard Dakota leather upholstery, heated seats and a premium Harman Kardon® audio system in the BMW M2 but not on the entry-level 2 Series models. That said, both models come standard with the iDrive touchscreen multimedia system so you can stay connected to loved ones, enjoy your favorite tunes and more. Both models have the multimedia features you want most.

2020 BMW 2 Series vs. 2020 BMW M2 Competition: Performance & Handling

Make no mistake: The 2020 BMW 2 Series is no performance slouch. It comes standard with up to 248 horsepower from its turbocharged engine. A twin-scroll turbocharger design reduces turbo lag, for more power available at fewer revs. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but optional xDrive all-wheel drive can improve your grip, control and performance in wet weather. All this and more adds up to an elevated drive from crowded freeways to wide-open two-lane roads.

The 2020 BMW M2 Competition, by contrast, features 405 horsepower from its bi-turbocharged engine! With six cylinders arrayed in a line, and not a 'V', you'll enjoy a smoother ride and more refined exhaust note than many rival cars. Furthermore, the exhaust, power steering and suspension systems have all been tuned by M to shave tenths off your lap times at the track. The Active M Differential ensures power is distributed optimally across both rear wheels for the most ferocious acceleration. When you want performance that makes no compromises, step up to the most powerful letter on the road.
