New 2021 BMW M135i Price, Review, Specs – The new BMW 1 Series has finally been revealed, and the most appealing to us here in the MOTOR is the range-topping 2021 BMW M135i. BMW called it the new entry-level car “Sporty, cool, safe, and classy,” but hopefully emphasis on the first point for M135i.

BMW Australia said the hot hatch of BMW will be available at a local launch later this year, although it cannot confirm the price or the exact specifications at the moment. Perhaps the most prominent aspect of the new 1 series is the absence of something most would lose expensive, 3.0-liter straight six as seen in M140i.

In its place above the range are four inline ones that debuted on the X2 M35i-though as the motor will not mock. The Turbo four blows out 225kW on the top reaches passes 4500rpm and pulls hard with a solid 450Nm Turbo-induced torque between 1750rpm and 5000rpm.

2021 BMW M135i Performances

If previous experience with this machine is something to go by, BMW 4.8 seconds 0-100km/h claims may even be a little conservative. It’s also worth noting that the new engine output is very impressive for its size. Where six inline made 93.4 kW per liter, the four’s 112.6 kW knocked out of the park.

The engine is impressive enough to be worthy of his own title in this list, but the rest of the drivetrain, i.e. Gearbox and driven wheels, maybe a bit disappointing for the performance of M Puritan.

Instead of a six-speed manual at the back-driven wagon/Hatch, M135i now comes exclusively as an all-wheel-drive offering with the power transferred through the eight-COG ‘ Steptronic Sport ‘ transmission. While well-tuned if the X2 M35i is nothing to go by, it just wouldn’t be as fun as a 250kw experience sent to tears as you line through the teeth.

Outside, the new 1er is very slightly longer, wider, and higher (4319/1799/1434mm each in the new M135i vs 4324/1765/1411mm in the old M140i), but with a slightly shorter (by 20mm) 2670mm wheelbase. The tracks are wider, however, with 1560mm in front and 1563mm in the rears.

But the main dimension number is heavy, now 1525kg thanks to xDrive system M135i it’s heavier. While it provides additional traction, it also draws a power-to-weight figure down to 148kW-per-tonne, M140i bragging 162.

The style could be arguably subjective so we wouldn’t call the new 1 series more or less interesting than the latter, but obviously the direction of the design has been transformed into emulating the X2 in terms of a round front, and a larger grid. BMW says it aims to see the ‘ Shark nose ‘.

Our predictions for the M135i price starts at €48,900 ($54,390) in Germany or about €1,100 ($1,225) more than the Mercedes-AMG A35 4Matic.
