The highly-anticipated BMW M235i has been spied virtually undisguised during a photoshoot.
Set to become the spiritual successor to the 1-Series M Coupe, the M235i has an evolutionary design which clearly echoes its predecessor. More notably, we can see the model will have little in common with the 1-Series that it is based on. Key styling changes include new bumpers, a revised grille and unique headlights.
While the exterior will be exclusive to the 2-Series, the interior will be heavily influenced by the 1-Series hatchback. This means the M235i will likely be equipped with Hexagon/Alcantara cloth upholstery, a sport steering wheel and Aluminum Hexagon trim with Estoril Blue or high-gloss black accents.
Like the M135i, the M235i is expected to be powered by a 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine that produces 320 HP (235 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. The hatchback accelerates from 0-100 km/h in 4.9 seconds, so expect the coupe to be a few ticks faster.
The M235i is expected to go into production in November, so an official unveiling is likely just around the corner.

I see it doesn't have those side vents like the 4 series which is good IMO.

Why is the back higher up than the front though?

About time

This may have to be the replacement for my 1 series in 2014-2015

Its going to be so easy to confuse a 1/2/3/4-series with a 1/2/3/4-series if they keep making everything look the god damn same.

I'm surprised this hasn't generated more conversation. I actually really like the looks of it. I hope it performs on par or better than the current 135

^ Size is the difference .. the e90 is the size of the older e60 .. i wanted sometime the size of the e46 as a 3 series so this i235 would be perfect.

I liked the new look that BMW have given to this one.

Still not as sweet as an e30 or 2002.
