The M2, called "Junjie" in China, is a midsize sedan manufactured by Brilliance Auto. It was introduced in April 2005 at the Leipzig and Shanghai motor shows and released on March 18 the next year. Sales topped 30,000 in 2006.

The second model Brilliance Auto launched bearing the Zhonghua marque, the M2 has shared a platform with the M1, or Zunchi, both sitting on a 2790mm wheelbase. According to Brilliance, the M2 was developed in cooperation with Porsche and manufactured with technologies and standards it learned from BMW, its JV partner.

In July 2008, Brilliance started to ship the M2 to Germany, where it was sold as BS4. The BS4 suffered a near deathblow as it was rated zero star in a crash test conducted by ADAC on March 26, 2009 (while the M2/BS6 score one star in 2007 in a similar test).

On December 28, 2008, Brilliance put on sale a Wagon variant of the M2, which was designed by Lowie Veermesch at Pininfarina. Compared with the sedan, the wagon is not only longer but wider and taller.

Sales of the M2 dropped steadily since 2009. Only 6,989 units were delivered in 2012, and 2414 in the first ten months of 2013 (not including the Wagon version). No notable upgrades have been made since 2011. Production of the M2 was terminated in 2014.
