Article by Christian Andrei, on January 15, 2014

Besides the M3 Sedan and the M4 Coupe, BMW also brought at the Detroit Auto Show the 2014 M235i Coupe, one of the latest member of the M Performance Automobile Company. The new M235i Coupe is powered by a six-cylinder in-line engine featuring the well-known M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology that delivers a maximum output of 326 hp (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque.

With these numbers the small coupe hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in 5.0 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph or 250 km/h. As an option, the BMW M235i Coupe can be fitted with an eight-speed Sports automatic transmission, complete with Launch Control. With Launch Control activated, the M235i Coupe hits 100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.8 seconds.

Still, the top speed is electronically limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) due to safety reasons. According to BMW, the M235i Coupe has an average fuel consumption in the EU test cycle of 8.1 liters per 100 km (34.9 mpg imp). With the eight-speed Sports automatic gearbox, fuel consumption drops to 7.6 liters per 100 km (37 mpg imp).

As standard, BMW offers the M sport braking system and variable sport steering, as well as the exclusive 18-inch M light-alloy wheels wrapped in 225/40 R18 mixed tyres on the front and with 245/40 R18 at the rear. As an option, the BMW M235i Coupe can be fitted with 19-inch M Performance alloy wheels.
