Details of the 2023 BMW M2, and its interior, have been unveiled by the OEM. The standard and heated M Sport seats are offered in a choice of either Vernasca Black or Cognac leather, with pronounced side bolsters and contour lines around the backrest and head restraint in the well-known BMW M colors. The standard seats are electronically adjustable and feature integral head restraints with an illuminated M logo. The vehicle’s seatbelts also feature the BMW M stripe pattern.
Alternatively, customers can opt for M Carbon bucket seats in Merino leather which are also heated and fully electronically adjustable. The seats benefit from removable head restraints and the ability to add a multi-point harness. Carbon fiber-reinforced plastic (CFRP) has been used in the structural elements of the seat cushion and backrest together with the cut-outs in the side bolsters and below the head restraints to save nearly 11kg compared to the M Sport seats.
M interior trim strips made out of carbon fiber feature as standard, while the shift paddles and trim on the M leather steering wheel benefit from a CFRP finish. Three-zone climate control, acoustic glazing on the windscreen and a Harman Kardon Surround Sound System also features within the cabin.
BMW’s Curved Display is angled toward the driver for ease of use, made up of a 12.3in information display and a 14.9in control display. The cloud-based BMW Maps navigation system comes as standard, enabling fast route calculation based on real-time traffic data which is transmitted intermittently.
A setup button in the BMW M2’s center console’s control panel enables drivers to access settings options for the engine, chassis, steering, braking system and 10-stage traction control.
Smartphone integration for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes as standard with wireless charging for compatible smartphones available as an optional extra. The BMW ConnectedDrive Upgrades technology enables new or improved vehicle functions to be updated for over-the-air updates. Furthermore, BMW’s Intelligent Personal Assistant can now be used to adjust air conditioning or to open and close windows. Driver assistance system functions can also be controlled through the same system.
