In 2022, the second generation BMW M2 is planned to enter the market, which will certainly surprise all fans of sports cars of this brand. First of all, it is expected that the new model will receive a giant grille in the style of the BMW X7 crossover. Many fans are intimidated by how a huge radiator grill will look like on a passenger car. We hasten to reassure you: the grille will make the car more aggressive and attractive. This has been proven by the recent leaked photos of the upcoming new BMW M3, which also appears to be getting a larger grille. This is what this model looks like:
Apparently, BMW has planned a complete change in the appearance of the entire lineup, along with a new image of the company (which became clear after the change of the brand logo). The fact that the Bavarians decided to change the “design language” of their cars mainly due to the large radiator grille is confirmed by the BMW Concept 4, which received a huge grille. Based on this model, we will see new 3 and 4 series models in the future. This is what this concept looks like with an XXL grille:
Most likely, this concept will be inspired by the designers of the new M2, which will hit the market codenamed G87. So the new model will receive sharpened body design lines, a giant radiator grille, and new decorative elements of the body. AutoBild has traditionally presented its vision for the new M2 model, offering a rendering image with a possible design of the future sports car. Here’s what a German auto magazine thinks the BMW M2 might look like.

Good news: the M2 is likely to get a new engine! According to Autocar magazine , the engine power of the new generation BMW M2 will be reduced to 420 hp. with. But nevertheless, it is still colossal power. Especially when combined with a maximum torque of 550Nm!
But most importantly, BMW fans can sleep well. The new model will remain rear-wheel drive. Everything is as promised by the BMW leadership in 2019. More good news – the manual transmission shouldn’t go away. So it is likely that both a six-speed manual transmission and an eight-speed automatic transmission will continue to be available in the new M2.
BMW M2 can get a hybrid powertrain and a new modification “Gran Coupe”
Experts also suggest that since the new M2 is based on the new BMW CLAR platform (based on which the BMW Z4 and Toyota Supra are produced), it is likely that the soft M2 will be able to get a hybrid engine for the first time. However, perhaps only with a facelift in 2025 or 2026. Analysts at Autocar also suggest that BMW is planning to launch a new modification of the M2 Gran Coupe. This model can come to the car market with all-wheel drive and get 400 horsepower under the hood. With this new model, BMW M GmbH will market a competitor to the Audi RS 3 and Mercedes-AMG A 45.
