BMW is proud to announce the market introduction of the M235i xDrive Coupe which will effectively go on sale this summer. This is basically the xDrive all-wheel drive version of the M235i Coupe but due to the AWD arrangement it now weighs 1,525 kg (3,362 lbs) which has increased the fuel consumption to 7.8 liters / 100 km. Under the hood it’s the same 6-cylinder 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo engine outputting 326 PS and a maximum torque of 450 Nm. Just like in the rear-wheel drive version, the power unit is working closely together with an 8-speed Speedtronic sports gearbox.
The M235i xDrive does the 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) sprint in 4.6 seconds and has a top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h), whereas the rear-wheel drive M235i Coupe needs 5 seconds until 100 km/h with the 6-speed manual gearbox and 4.8 seconds when configured with the aforementioned 8-speed ‘box.
