The M135i is for the moment the hottest 1 series available while BMW don't launch a true M1 model. It's a big change from previous generations which used a 3.0 litre 6 cylinder engine and rear wheel drive to produce a tail happy power slider, as it now has a turbocharged 2.0 litre turbo engine mated to a 4 wheel drive XDrive chassis giving the car a lot more security and matching key rivals such as the Mercedes A35 AMG and the Audi S3 in terms of 4 wheel drive, engine size, power and price almost exactly. With 306 horsepower, a 0-60 time of 4.8 seconds and a top speed limited to 155 mph the M135i feels a fast and secure rocketship that you can throw about in poor weather conditions without worrying that the back end will slide out on you, which may upset some traditionalists but in real life use the car has gained a new level of usability not seen in performance BMW's before. What it has lost in playfulness it's more than made up for in year-round ability which in the UK is a far more important factor!
