2020 BMW M2 Competition Design
In terms of design, there is no significant change in the new M2 Competition. The lack of change is not something to be frowned upon, though. The Competition trim used to be a higher-end trim. Now, it has become the standard trim. You can expect it to come with many excellent aspects. Yes, including the design.
While the M2 Competition is a performance-focused coupe, the design is far from neglected. If anything, we can say that it is among the best-looking coupes out there. The design looks sleek, modern, and of course, stylish. It is not surprising if many consider it as one of the best of M-Series BMW has to offer.
At the front, you can see its unique grilles (two above, and three below) with BMW trademark logo above it, slim, slit-like headlights, and defined lines, curves, and openings. Due to these design elements, M2 Competition looks stylish and aggressive at the same time.
At the rear, the taillights are placed on the outer edge of both sides. And just like the front end, there are defined lines, curves, and openings here as well, though not as many and noticeable as those at the front.
Just like the previous M2 models, the M2 Competition can accommodate four adult passengers comfortably. There is enough room for everyone. The leather upholstery makes the ride comfortable even for a long period. The cargo space is neither too large nor too small. It is decent for a coupe.

Not many coupes have such a powerful engine. The fuel economy of the M2 Competition is estimated to be 18 mpg for city and 25 mpg for highway.
