There have been many great releases from BMW in the recent past. One of the latest releases from the company is the M135. Right from the beginning the car has been compared to the 116I. some say that the new BMW 135 looks like the 116i with an M badge and it is hard to notice any difference from the looks of the car. There have been rumors that the car is also strikingly similar to the 116i from the insides as well.
However, the new BMW M135 brings a load of new features to the market. Right from the exterior designing of the car, which is somewhat to the 116i, but has some subtle changes, to the power train and the multimedia features in the interior of the car are all appealing enough.

The engine fitted inside the hood of the new BMW M135 is a twin scroll turbocharged engine with capacity of 3 litres the engine is front mounted and comes with rear wheel drive option. The engine comes with inline sixes and a neat twin nostril led nose.

The engine is supported by some world class transmission and suspension system. The car uses independent front and rear suspension. The new BMW M135 uses an eight speed automatic transmission system or a six speed manual transmission system. Both the options are available with a change in price of the car. With this configuration the car can achieve high speeds. The time taken by the car to go to 100 kilometres per hour from 0 kilometres per hour is a little less than five second, which is very impressive. The car also has good fuel efficiency.
The dimensions of the car support the engine nicely. The new BMW M135 is 4324 mm in length, 1421 mm in height and 1765 in width. The wheel base of the car is 2690 mm. The car weighs in at 1425 kg.
