BMW M135i

The all-new BMW M135i xDrive: 306 hp, 225 kW, 450 Nm.

Offering more performance, more style and more driving fun, the all-new BMW M135i xDrive is not there to compete – but to set new standards. Its athletic exterior emphatically displays this with distinctive details such as the M135i xDrive specific double kidney grille in mesh design, the M rear spoiler and the two 100 mm tailpipes.

Yet on the road, too, the BMW M135i xDrive sets the tone: the combination of standard-feature M Sport differential, BMW xDrive, Steptronic Sport transmission and M Sports steering makes it the best vehicle in its class in terms of agility and cornering. Powered by the high-revving M TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder BMW M135i petrol engine, this confident BMW 1 Series M Automobile offers performance and driving dynamics on a new level.

From a displacement of only 1,998 litres, the BMW M135i xDrive develops an impressive 225 kW (306 hp) and a high torque of 450 Nm. Responsible for this impressive performance is the combination of enlarged turbocharger, optimised intake air ducting, high-performance cooling package and M exhaust unit with air vent control.


The combination of the two-stage charging M TwinPower Turbo engine, fast-shifting 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, M Sport suspension with M Sport differential as standard and BMW xDrive enables driving dynamic performance at a supreme level.


In the interior of the BMW M135i xDrive passengers can expect a premium ambience with a sports character. Together with the firm grip of the M Leather steering wheel, the new M Sport seats reinforce the dynamic driving experience, perfectly accompanied by the discreet lighting of the illuminated interior trim finishers. A key constituent of the driver-oriented cockpit is the BMW Live Cockpit Professional with two 10.25" fully digital displays – guaranteeing a perfect overview.


Distinctive, sporty, authoritative – from the broad front with large air inlets and M135i xDrive specific double kidney grille in mesh design, via the dynamic sloping roof silhouette with M rear spoiler through to the expressive rear with 100-mm tailpipes. Interacting with the striking equipment options of the standard-feature M Aerodynamics package, the exterior design of the BMW M135i xDrive embodies a supreme level of athleticism and sheer driving pleasure.


Settled down for some serious driving fun: in future no corner will be too tight and no ride too dynamic thanks to the ergonomically perfected M Sport seats for driver and passenger. With integrated headrest and M marking, they set powerful optical accents in the interior of the BMW M135i xDrive. At the same time, the M Sport seats offer diverse setting options, allowing perfect adjustment to body type and purpose.
