What Car? says...
There are few greater joys in motoring than a brilliant engine, and BMW has produced a fair few of them over the years. Its twin-turbocharged 3.0-litre straight-six is one shining example, and it’s what you’ll find when lifting the bonnet of the BMW M240i.
In many ways, it’s what this car’s entire driving experience centres around. You see, there was a time when sports cars with tuneful six-cylinder engines were plentiful but, with the downsizing trend continuing, the M240i is a dying breed. So, it’s distinctly old school – and in the best possible way.
So, what are its rivals? Well, arguably, this is one of the few cars on sale that don't have any. There are plenty of other fast two-door coupés of course, just none this small (unless you count the Audi TT, but that’s more of a sports car with token rear seats).
Over the next few pages of this review, we’ll run you through what the BMW M240i is like to drive, how practical it is and whether or not it stacks up financially.
