2020 BMW M2 CS Complete In-depth Review & Buying Guide

Judging by the all the spy shots and pictures floating around the internet, we can safely conclude that the CS version will be flashier than other M2 models. The brake calipers are painted golden, and are quite large too, almost filling in the entire space inside the wheels. It also seems that the construction will predominantly use a carbon fiber and plastic construction in the interest of weight savings. Coupled with a more powerful engine, the CS would be blindingly fast down a straight line. One peculiar thing though, which may be a problem with just these spy pics, is the front grille, which has a very subtle vertical division in the signature kidney grille. It may a deviation from the norm, but the car still looks very distinctly BMW-ish.

Expert Review


CARHP Editorial March 25, 2019


BMW only has one performance car with a manual transmission option; it’s the brilliant M2. With a powerful turbo inline-6 engine in a lightweight package, the M2 is quite a popular choice among motoring enthusiasts. Now, a new version of the car has been spotted making rounds at the Nürburgring, the holy ground where all performance cars are tested. The M2 CS was spotted without camouflage, which makes it easier to see the finer details.

It may a deviation from the norm, but the car still looks very distinctly BMW-ish.

If you were to merely glance at the car, the M2 CS may not look too different from the M2 competition package. If your gaze does stay a little longer though, the key differences will immediately pop-up. The front end in the CS now sports a lip-spoiler, which will scrape on every speed bump if you take it out on public roads, but will keep the front wheels planted on the race track. A similar lip-spoiler is seen on the more premium BMW M4 CS. The little M2 CS borrows a few more styling cues from its bigger sibling, like wheel design and brakes, the latter of which are carbon-ceramic.

2020 BMW M2 CS Pricing and Availability

While the ‘M’ series of cars are pretty exclusive on their own, the CS variant will be a limited production model. It is an extremely specialized version of the car, almost exclusively for the racetrack. It might be a road legal edition, but you’d be better off not driving it around town. Still, it won’t be a bank breaker like performance cars usually are, with the rumored price close to just $60.000.

The current rumor mill suggests that this CS variant will only be available in the US. Before your ego inflates though, hear the whole thing out. The rest of the world will get a M2 CSL variant, which would be even more track focused, lighter, stiffer, and much more powerful. The CSL would be available late 2020 or even 2021. There is another rumor afloat online, and this one is actually quite a sweet one. Apparently, BMW is referring to this car internally as ‘drift machine’. Oh what a lovely codename to have! Now all that’s left to see is if the car can live up to the hype, or if it will be completed overshadowed by other launches such as BMW’s premium performance coupe.
