BMW M235i Coupe will be available with xDrive all-wheel drive starting this summer

The BMW M235i Coupe was offered only with rear-wheel drive but it appears that things are about to change as the Bavarian carmaker will offer the sporty coupe also with xDrive all-wheel drive. Starting this summer, the M235i Coupe will be available for those who want even more traction for their vehicle.

The BMW M235i Coupe comes as standard with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder in-line engine with M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology that delivers 326 hp (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

As a result, the M235i Coupe accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.0 seconds when using the six-speed manual transmission and in 2.8 seconds when equipped with the eight-speed Sports automatic transmission with Launch Control activated.

The M235i Coupe xDrive is expected to zoom from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 4.6 seconds when using the eight-speed transmission. This means 0.2 seconds quicker than its RWD brother. Top speed is expected to be limited at 250 km/h or 155 mph.

The standard 2014 BMW M235i Coupe starts at $44,025 in the United States, which means that the AWD version will be more expensive. Expect the new M235i Coupe xDrive to arrive this summer!
