When talking about luxury cars, BMW occupies a ‘parking space.’ The all-wheel drive M235i xDrive is not an exception to the brand’s feat of exhibiting classy cars equipped with power that can bring out adventure-with-style factor into pedestal.
Just so you know, the compact places second under the entry-luxury compact. It competes with Audi A3 (set as no. 1), Acura ILX and Mercedes Benz CLA-class.
Exterior and Interior
BMW’s entry-level luxury compact is a mean-looking mechanical pony with the combo of its stylish mesh grilles, headlights and fog lights. To our opinion, it possesses more of a masculine aura—tough and sturdy.
The dashboard sports more of a modern but well-organized cluster of function keys, infotainment set and navigational buttons. For customization, you can get the Dakota leathery but it will render your account $1,450 less.
Engine, Transmission and Price
M235i xDrive’s engine says it all: Topnotch power and speed. The turbocharged, intercooled DOHC renders performance for our favorite luxury compact. It is capable of summoning 320hp of power and 330lb.-ft. of torque. Since it’s an AWD, slippery surfaces won’t be a problem for M235i xDrive.
Another cool factor for the compact is itsgas economy factor. With 20MPG within city limits and 30MPG spent on the highways, you can really save money after spending a startling price $33,095 but could go up until $48,695.
