Introduction

What Car? says...

Like the less extreme models in the 1 Series range, the latest generation BMW M135i is a very different kettle of fish to its predecessor.

First up, that means no rear-wheel drive, and the six-cylinder engine has gone, too. It's now a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder that's coupled to four-wheel drive.
