There have long been talks that BMW is working on a few variants of the BMW M2 but it looks like the M2 CS or M2 Competition will have a bigger role to play when it arrives.

According to BMW Blog, the vehicle will be coming in June next year to replace the entry-level BMW M2. So what does this mean? Well, it means that we will no longer be getting an affordable M model in the future and that the BMW 2-Series with 3.0-liter turbo N55 days are over.

The new BMW M2 Competition will be fitted with the S55 engine from the M3 and M4. The engines will be detuned to only offer 400hp and 500Nm but because of the size of the BMW M2, it should match what the M4 is offering.

What do you think of all these new changes that BMW is making on the BMW 2-Series?

The reason I bought the M2 over Audi and Jag was price and manual transmission option. Glad I got my now “base” M car when I did. Not sure if I like this strategy.
