BMW has retained its tradition of upgrading very good cars. The 1-series model, 135i, is going to be renewed so as to impress by its functionality. The previous models have excellent driving dynamics, but the new version is even more superior to them.
The latest version of BMW 135i boast a turbo charged 3.0-liter V6 engine, coupled to six-speed manual or seven-speed automatic transmission. The car is able to deliver 320 horsepower. The system is powered by direct fuel injection. The transmission is smooth and quick to switch when there is need to turn or especially on twisty roads. The shifts of speed are made even more impressive whenever the sport mode is on. But what is more, the cabin remains as silent as it can only be.
The standard 1-series cars had a bit different suspension. The new 135i has a revised suspension, the new engine cooling system and new shock absorber. Due to them there is reduced noise attack of the power plant.
The standard exterior is highlighted by 18-inch alloy wheels; side mirrors covered black and new dimensions. The car is 171.7 inches in length, 76.1 inches in width and 56.0 inches in height. This coupe is much smaller than its closest rivals from 3-series lineup. The front bumper has also been redesigned to provide air-cooling of the engine.
As for the interior, it is very practical. The seats at the back are extremely comfortable. The general overview of the cabin doesn’t suggest much aesthetic delight, but the details look rather durable and solid. The central console is equipped with numerous buttons. But the system is easy to control: everyone can manage to set the needed mode of navigation, audio system or steering wheel. The engine is generously responding to the driver’s efforts. The trunk capacity is a bit smaller than in 3-series coupe cars, but sufficient for all sorts of cargo. The rear seats limit the amount of occupants to two adults, due to lack of space for legs for the third passenger.
The car is quick and willing to produce its top abilities. Coupe and convertible will be available on the global sale.
