BMW has traditionally targeted premium hot hatch rivals like the Audi S3 and the Mercedes A35 AMG by offering models like the M135i with 4 wheel drive and 300 horsepower to give a fast refined level of performance, but not one you would consider focused. To widen the appeal BMW has now gone after slightly less powerful front wheel drive models like the Golf GTI and the Honda Civic Type R that have a more driver focused nature with a crisp handling front end. So where the M135i has four wheel drive, the 128ti is front drive only, removing nearly 100kg from the weight, and using the same 2.0 turbocharged engine which in this application develops 261 horsepower and a 0-60 time of 6.1 seconds, with reworked firmer suspension and a mechanical limited slip differential for the front wheels to make the car feel more agile and sharper, whilst giving a lower price point and saving a useful amount over the M135i, making the monthly leasing costs cheaper. To make the car stand out it gets a unique set of 18" Y spoke alloy wheels, red coloured bumper air intakes and side skirts, and the black gloss shadowline trim with black grille, mirror caps and window tints, and it's fitted with an 8 speed Steptronic automatic gearbox as standard, with no manual available.
