2019 BMW M2 Vs 2020 Volvo XC40


Think of the 2019 BMW M2 series as a two door thrill that completely reaffirms and reassures BMW’s well known ability to design the ultimate driving machine. Its wide body appearance as well as high performance upgrades make it one of the most sought after BMW models. That’s certainly not everything. It comes along with a ballistic turbocharged engine coupled with a clairvoyant chassis. In a nutshell, the M2 is all you need if you long for a precision machine for high speed escapades in elegance.  Then there is the 2020 Volvo XC40 which has been touted by many as the closest competitor to the M2. It is a great car as well, just that it doesn’t measure up to the M2 in many aspects.

Design & Style

The M2 (Officially referred to as the M2 Competition) boasts of a stiffer front suspension and an exterior that is simply breathtaking. Its stability, steering, rear differential and control system are all designed to near perfection. It gets better with a set of more powerful brakes as well as 19 inch wheels which are in all fairness amazing performance upgrades. You’ll most likely fall in love with M2’s wide kidney grille coupled with bigger front air intakes all designed to maximize cooling. New paint colors Sunset Orange and Hockenheim Silver bolster the exterior experience to guarantee you a one of a kind aesthetic appeal.

Like the M2 series, 2020 Volvo XC40 is also aimed at luxury buyers. It delivers in terms of style and design but you still can’t help but notice how the M2 series has an edge over it. A panoramic roof blended with a sporty look is all it has to offer in terms what sets it apart from the M2 series. Other than it, the M2 bags the medal in nearly all the other aspects of both design and style.

Technology & Safety

The M2 has passed several safety tests. But you have to drive it to experience not just how comfortable but also how safe it feels. It boasts of several driver assist features to make your driving experience superb. Its safety highlights include automatic high beams, lane departure warning, automated emergency braking and forward collision warning.

2020 Volvo XC40 technology and safety features do not go beyond the usual standard features. Expect a standard automated emergency braking as well as lane keeping assist. Everything else feels somewhat normal.


You’ll quickly notice how M2’s snorty turbocharged mill is exceptional. With maximum horsepower that is detuned from 444 to 405, expect a beast on the road. It gets even better with a standard six speed manual transmission and an optional seven speed dual – clutch automatic. Take all these into account and it does not come as a surprise how and why the M2 easily cruises from zero to 60 mph in just 4 seconds.

The Bottom Line

M2 is elegance, strength, torque and luxury combined. It also guarantees safety. With the model, what you see is exactly what you get. The same cannot be said of 2020 Volvo XC40. The M2 simply does not fail to impress.
