Jake Fisher from Consumer Reports has recently taken out the BMW M235i for a quick spin and it seems that the “pocket rocket” was love at first sight, or almost.
BMW has produced the 1M Coupe a few years back and after approximately 5,000 units produced, one of the most appreciated small cars ever to come from the company has been discontinued, despite many fans admitted that it can be compared to the original M3 E30. Now, BMW is offering an alternative to that car, it’s called the M235i and it’s a front-engine, rear-wheel drive vehicle, which will be able to put a smile on your face.
The BMW M235i has been officially introduced back in 2013 and it’s available for order in Europe and the United States too. The model has a starting price of 36,764 euros on the Old Continent and it’s coming with a 3.0 liter inline straight six-cylinder turbocharged petrol burner. The engine can produce a total output of 332 HP (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque, being connected to either a manual or an automatic transmission.
