Engine & Performance
The BMW M235i is powered by a 3.0 liter, inline 6 engine. The engine comes equipped with sound tuning, power management, modifications to its cooling system and twin power turbo technology.
The exterior design similarities between the 135i and the M235i are quite noticeable. The M235i features the traditional M design at the front with huge flaps and air intakes inspired by race cars.
However, the main distinguishing factor are the exterior mirror caps, a high-gloss shadow line trim, a rear apron, and contoured side skirts. The lower section of the car has a Dark shadow metallic paintwork finish that incorporates it with the twin tailpipes.
The interior of the M235i has door-sill strips with â€œM235iâ€ lettering engraved in the aluminum inserts. Both driver and the passenger receive the added support of leather wrapped sports seats.
As the driver, you will enjoy an M-steering wheel featuring multifunction buttons. The leather finish extends to the steering wheel, selector level, and gearshift lever.
The M235i has a BMW Individual roof liner in Aluminum and Anthracite Hexagon trim coupled with accent strips in high-gloss black or matte Estoril blue.
