AUTO – Sporting Powerhouse
BMW is back with a revamped M135i xDrive…
Dreaming of new wheels – and looking for something compact? BMW’s M135i xDrive has made a raft of modifications to this four-cylinder sporting powerhouse with retuned springs and dampers, a revamped chassis and retuned drive soundtrack in the cabin.
The standout power of the 225 kW/306 hp four-cylinder unit with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology under the bonnet is harnessed more effectively than ever to produce the driving experience for which BMW is renowned. Detailed set-up modifications for the bespoke chassis technology result in better mounting, ensuring precise, controllable driving. The optimised traction enables drivers to explore the car’s performance limits with confidence, especially when cornering at high speeds.
Specially tuned M Sport steering and M Sport brakes can also be found on the standard equipment list for the BMW M135i xDrive. The compact sports car leaves the factory on 18-inch M light-alloy wheels as standard, with the option of 19-inch light-alloy items available in a variety of designs.
A new selection of striking paint finishes has been introduced to accompany the performance enhancements and underscore the individual character of the BMW M135i xDrive. BMW Individual paint finishes and special customer requests can also be incorporated into the manufacturing process at BMW Group Plant Leipzig, where the compact model is built. New additions to the range of exterior colours include the M paint shade Sao Paulo Yellow non-metallic (pictured), Frozen Orange metallic and Frozen Pure Grey finishes. bmwgroup.com
