Exclamation Detroit 2014: BMW M235i and 228i - World Debut

Detroit 2014: BMW M235i and 228i - World Debut

COMMENTS

Along with the BMW M3 and BMW M4 making their debuts at this exciting show (due to such marquee BMW model debuts), is the BMW M235i coupe and 228i coupe [See Official Thread].

The M235i with its 3.0L N55 inline 6 cylinder turbo engine achieves 322 hp / 332 lb-ft and covers 0-60mph in 4.8 sec (auto) and 5.0 sec (manual).

The 228i is powered by the 2.0L N20 inline 4 cylinder turbo engine, good for 240 hp / 258 lb-ft. 0-60mph takes 5.4 sec (auto).

Both models will hit US dealers in March. For ordering/pricing information, see the official BMW guide at: http://www.2addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=923208

We'll soon be publishing an interview we just had with BMW on the 2 Series, so be sure to check back.

just looking at the front, M sport looks nice but looking at the whole car, the sportline looks nice! Maybe it's because it's black??

This car will be a blast. Having owned (2) 135i's; I can see the 2 series building on the 1 series successes. Like the 1M, the M2 might be most fun M car to drive.

I thought the same thing. Maybe we're just tired of the red M235i pics? The rear diffuser on the 228 is much nicer too.

Wasn't there a grey "splitter" in the center of the left and right front air dams? I thought earlier pics showed it there now I don't see it. It bothered me in the first place so I'm quite happy. Am I going crazy? Or did earlier picks show this and now they're gone. - yep, I checked. They are gone. Any other subtle changes anyone has noticed?

Here's to hoping an M2 model comes to fruition.

I'm really diggin' the 2er. I really like the OE Blackline-like tails and CF-esque trunk spoiler on the M235i.

Strange - the 228i appears to have the Steptronic transmission option instead of the standard Sport Automatic. I wonder why that option even exists?

The M235i really looks brilliant.

The options are confusing in regard to the suspensions and the brakes (be it, I am a bit slow) and I would prefer a car with a fixed suspension and steering ratio.... Or maybe I wouldn't since I haven't driven anything other than an 2012 550 xi with 'active roll bars' or whatever they called it and active steering. That car was a yacht and a rocket ship at the same time, good lord.

I still feel like a 228i m sport (why not M228i?) with a stick is the hot ticket. Lighter front end gobs of torque ect. I can't recall if the 228i with m sport kit has a fixed suspension. The sales guys in the US have a tough job ahead learning all the different combinations! And this car will be available as an xi come summer! When's the vert coming.. and the sedan...wagon?! lol

This car is just about the size of an e46 (remember when the body code was the same for sedan, coupe, wagon and vert?) so why not a sedan and wagon for the new 2er? I guess I should be careful what I wish for... they'd send us a 228i sedan/wagon xi/auto only lol!

So yeah, the 2er is a win, just give the enthusiasts what we want

again... love the exterior/performance, just wish the interior gave me anything to be excited about... seats look nice but the dash just looks cheap to me and a bit chaotic.... I miss the clean lines of the e46 interior.
