Description

In 2016, the BMW M140i replaced the M135i model on the top off the 1-series range, becoming one of the most powerful hot hatches of its era.

The M140i is powered by a 3.0 liter, straight six engine, utilizing the M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology with twin-scroll turbocharging, fully variable valve timing (Valvetronic) and variable camshaft control (Vanos). The car is available with either a shorter ratio six-speed manual transmission, or the eight-speed Steptronic Sport that send the power to the rear wheels – or to all four wheels on the xDrive version. With an output of 250 kW/340 hp and a maximum torque of 500 Nm (the most torque ever on a stock hot hatch model), the car sprits from 0-100km/h in 4.4 seconds (with the Steptronic Sport transmision and the xDrive AWD system). Variable sport steering improves the feel of the electromechanical power assistance while the M Sport suspension and the M Sport braking system make the car more agile.

On 2018. the car received a minor facelift. The optional M140i Edition Shadow trim included black inserts to the standard LED headlights, black finish for the kidney grille, darkened rear light assemblies and 18-inch light-alloy wheels wearing mixed-size tyres (225/40 at the front and 245/35 at the rear)
