The entry-level BMW M model, the M235i, will reportedly receive a small power boost in 2017.
Despite not being a true M vehicle, the M235i is considered by many as the true spiritual successor of the E30 M3 and fans will be happy to hear it’s planned for a 15 PS (11 kW) power increase in 2017, reaching a total output of 340 PS (250 kW). According to our source, the car will be renamed to M240i and will get a new 3.0 engine, replacing the current 3.0-liter N55 unit.
In the same year the model will likely receive a WiFi hotspot system as well, while a year later it will be facelifted. The LCI, as BMW calls its facelifts, will bring a refreshed design and some equipment improvements.
