"Provocative", "extroverted", "muscular". BMW sets the description of the M235i xDrive Gran coupe to stuff. How is he really on the streets?
The BMW M235i xDrive Gran coupe to join seamlessly into the in-house "M"variants*, the form is the sporty spearhead of the model series. Externally, the 4,53 meters long Compact suggests its Power, among other things, a narrow spoiler and two powerful exhaust tailpipes. Under the hood is a 306-horsepower gasoline engine -for powerful Power.
The strongest two-liter, four-cylinder BMW , in which the engineers drove the crank, reinforced pistons for a higher compression ratio is modified and the injectors have adapted to the higher pressure, also sits on the smaller M135i xDrive under the hood. And on the technical Basis of this smaller 1-brother, the 2 series Gran coupe is. Also there is now offered a six-cylinder and more.
Who's why: The "small" four-cylinder leaves nothing to be desired, even by the Sound: When you Start grumbles and he snarls quietly, he can quite comfortably and quietly through the city. With a stronger pressure on the accelerator is a powerful feed , which is limited in the top only at 250 km/h, however, results in. On top of that, the two-liter roaring petrol engine in such a crisp, as one would roar over the Hockenheim ring.
Okay, the Sound volume does not approach, of course, to a six-cylinder. But at least the four-cylinder engine is less thirsty. We arrived at the Test of the Topsportlers on a section of 8,8 l / 100 km . Still a lot in today's time. But for cars, the sprints with up to 450 Nm of torque in less than five seconds (4,9) from a standstill to a speed of 100, without a doubt, a very good value. With economical driving away from the city, the fuel consumption is also may fall below eight litres , with a lot of Stop-and-go and high speed, of course, over ten liters .+ Externally, the 1.41 meters flat notchback sedan similar to the BMW-brother-Gran-Turismo.©BMW
