2013 BMW M135i xDrive Tested
Forget all the shortcomings of the entry-level hot hatches, the M135i behaves like a sports car when you put it to work. Alas, it’s a bit softer than you’d want it to be at the limit and this is mainly due to the suspension.
However, this is precisely what makes it a brilliant little car. BMW’s M135i, with or without the xDrive, isn’t a full M car and while this means that you’ll find some shortcomings on the track, it brings plenty of benefits for everyday use.
To put it shortly, you’ll have no problem driving this 320 HP car everyday. Instead, you’ll be rewarded with 1.5 tons of cool stuff we’ll talk about in our 2013 BMW M135i xDrive test drive.
