BMW has introduced the new M235i xDrive Coupe.

Set to go on sale this summer, the model is powered by the company's familiar 3.0-liter TwinPower Turbo six-cylinder engine that develops 326 PS (240 kW) and 450 Nm (332 lb-ft) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed Steptronic sport transmission which enables the coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 4.6 seconds before hitting a limited top speed of 250 km/h (155 mph). For comparison, the rear-wheel M235i accelerates from 0-100 km/h in five seconds with a six-speed manual and 0-100 km/h in 4.8 seconds with the eight-speed automatic.

Unfortunately, the all-wheel drive system increases the curb weight to 1525 kg (3362 kg) and reduces the combined fuel efficiency to 7.8 L/100km (30.1 mpg US / 36.2 mpg UK)
