This hot hatch will haul ass without drama. Good to see BMW finally getting into that market decades late.
Just another FWD 4 pot MPV style hatchback. 1 series DNA is missing, no USP. Interiour looks superb but it's now an ugly faced plump generic fwd with less power, less torque and the RWD replaced by a FWD system that only sends power to the rear when needed by a nanny system that cannot be controlled by the driver. ( outgoing F20 M140i X drive sends 60 % to rear) This F40 M135i is not a real M light car. But the price is premium ! WTF, one may as well buy a Kia for a lot less as this is not anything that I would remotely consider replacing my F20 with!
