[VIDEO] BMW M240i with Great Power Delivery Outsprints an M2

It had attracted the interest of journalists when BMW managed to create the BMW M240i that appears to be worthy of its predecessor and badge. Regarded as a high thrill buck value, many consumers adored the previous and first-generation M240i model. Furthermore, the M240i seems to be instilling fear into the M2 Competition with its exceeding expectations.

There is some truth in it despite the exaggeration. It is noticeably faster than the M2 Competition, as shown by instruments tests. Even though the M240i xDrive is less powerful and agile than the M2. The two cars undergo tests by the guys from Car and Driver with their pens, paper, and a stopwatch. According to the results, even with the full-on M model, the BMW M240i xDrive is still faster on a straight track.

The M240i xDrive finished at 12.4 seconds. Compared to 12.1 of the M Performance model. Whether manual or with the seven-speed DCT transmission, the results will still be the same. With the faster gearbox and a more powerful engine of the M2, the M240i xDrive still manages to finish 0.3 ahead. Compared to the 382 of the M240i, the M2 has 405 horsepower and is also lighter by 249 pounds.

If you think about it, it’s pretty simple, and it is possible. It doesn’t matter if a car has much power if it can’t put it to good use. To outsprint the M2 on shorter distances, it efficiently uses its 382 horsepower thanks to its all-wheel-drive system. In other words, using power efficiently is where the M240i xDrive exceeds in the test. Apparent differences are noticeable if the race changes to a rolling start or takes the two to the track. The M240i xDrive, on the other hand, will make a lot more sense for most car enthusiasts.
