BMW’s pint-sized M2 harkens back to the original small, swift, and snappy M car, the E30-gen M3. Its 3.0-liter turbocharged inline-six makes 365 hp and drives the rear wheels through a six-speed manual. An optional seven-speed dual-clutch automatic blasts the M2 to 60 in just 4.0 seconds. The poised chassis delivers heroic handling, and although the steering is a bit vague at times, this is easily forgiven; sticky tires and beefy brakes help inspire confidence. The M2 is a 2017 10Best winner.
