This vehicle gets started where others stop: turbocharged straight six-cylinder engine with 240 kW (326 hp), dynamic braking, a rear spoiler lip for increased surface pressure, M Sport chassis and lots more – welcome to a world that revolves around racing and offers breathtakingly high performance.
With its special six-cylinder in-line engine and sporty engine sound, the M Performance is the sportiest of the 2 Series models. Even at first glance, its 18" M light alloy wheels with specially developed mixed tyres, Xenon Headlights and M Sport brakes in Dark Blue metallic with the "M" logo are indicative of the vehicle's dedication to outstanding sportiness. The specially aligned M Sport suspension, lowered by 10 mm, and variable sport steering incl. Servotronic, give the vehicle improved agility and driving dynamics. The M Aerodynamics package with a special front apron and rear diffuser, along with the rear spoiler on the luggage compartment, ensure better aerodynamics and downforce behaviour. Exterior mirror caps in Ferric Grey, along with the two tailpipes in black chrome, perfectly round off the vehicle's sporty look. Any remaining doubts about this model's unique performance are immediately dispelled by the sight of the "M235i" model name in dark chrome on the rear.
The interior of the M Performance model exudes extraordinary sportiness with door sill finishers with the "M235i" logo, sport seats for the driver and front passenger with classic M-style upholstery seams and the M leather steering wheel with multifunction buttons. The appropriate atmosphere is generated by the M interior trims in sporty Aluminium Hexagon and the instrument cluster with a specific dial design and fine chronoscales, as well as by the instrument cluster with extended functionality complete with "M235i" logo. The M Performance model also comes with an M driver footrest. The interior lighting can be set to the exclusive colours orange-red or white. The BMW Individual headliner in Anthracite above complements the dynamic look. The Radio Professional adds a melodious final touch to the interior.
