Why 315 HP only for the M235i vs the 320HP M135i ?!

Is there any reason why the M235i wouldn't have the same power as the little sister M135i ?
That sounds really weird to me, but that is what is mentioned in various threads...

The m135i has 315 HP which is 320bhp.

So the m235i will we the same output

In fact 320 is not bhp, it is PS! Like 1M is 340 PS but 335 bhp or hp. M135i has 320 PS or 315 bhp/hp.

Using kW as the only power unit would avoid these common confusions but...

Here is one of the good converting tools:
