The taillights receive a new, darker look. But the big story is the introduction of an M2 CS variant. BMW says this model is only for the 2020 model year, with 2,200 units being made for sale around the world. It comes with more power as well as extra track-worthy components, and is a road-going version of a car that BMW is selling to customer racing teams. Available summer 2020.

The 2020 BMW M2 high-performance premium subcompact coupe is available as the regular M2 Competition model or the limited-run M2 CS variant.
The M2 Competition ($59,895) comes with 19-in alloy wheels, Active M rear differential, M-grade brakes, LED headlights, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated/14-way power-adjustable front sport seats with driver's-side memory, keyless entry/ignition, carbon fiber interior trim, ambient cabin lighting, M Sport multifunction steering wheel, self-dimming rearview mirror and driver's-side door mirror, rain-sensing wipers, dynamic cruise control, forward-collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, lane-departure warning, front/rear parking sensors, navigation, Bluetooth, a USB port, Apple CarPlay smartphone integration, 8.8-in touchscreen for the iDrive infotainment system, a CD/MP3 player, AM/FM/HD/satellite radio and a Harman Kardon 360-watt/12-speaker audio setup.
The optional M Driver's bundle consists of a day's high-performance driving tuition and raises the top speed from 155 mph to 174 mph. The Executive package brings adaptive LED headlights with automatic high beams, heated steering wheel, wireless charging and Wi-Fi. A moonroof is also optional.
The 2020 M2 CS ($84,595) has a roof, hood and various aerodynamic additions made from carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP). The lightweight roof helps to lower the center of gravity, which benefits handling. Driving dynamics are also enhanced by an adaptive M suspension fitted as standard. This has never been even an option in other M2 cars. The M steering wheel is also wrapped in Alcantara, a suede-like material often used in the cabins of racing cars.
Options for the M2 CS are few. Buyers may choose alloy wheels with a matte gold finish, the 7-speed automated transmission, high-performance Michelin Cup 2 tires and fade-resistant carbon ceramic brakes -- a smart choice if planning to drive the car on a track.
Trunk space is 13.8 cu ft., which is pretty good -- enough for three golf bags.

2020 Audi TT RS Coupe -- No real rear seats to speak of, only 394 hp and more expensive ($68,495) than the M2 Competition, but all-wheel drive (AWD) and lots of tech come as standard. Pretty cute as well.
2020 Audi RS 3 -- A compact sedan with AWD and 394 hp. From $57,195.
2020 BMW M240i -- The idea of a small yet powerful premium car is undoubtedly appealing, but some people might prefer a convertible and/or AWD. For around $13,000 less than an M2 Competition, yet still with a robust 355 hp, the M240i would still be a ton of fun.
2020 Mercedes-AMG CLA 45 -- A 4-door alternative with 382 hp and AWD. A new generation comes in for 2020.
