As the competition in luxury cars grows abundantly in the market, BMW continues to intimidate the rivals by producing compact cars that beef up in high-technology specifications.
BMW has been creating luxurious cars in a different niche with a variety of themes. While there are several BMW cars released that made a good reputation in the market, there are models that ring the bell differently from other vehicles. The BMW M2 surprised the aficionados but frustrated a lot of amateurs because of its price that costs top dollar.
Just this year, BMW released the new M240i Coupe. It is inspired from the expensive M2 but is more economical in price yet grand in performance.
Let’s start by talking about the skin. The M240i is more compact, beefier, and sexy as all BMW cars are. BMW’s original touches are blatantly shown in this sporty vehicle. From wheels, window, headlights, to shape, the M240i is perfect in the eyes. The wheels are made of alloy offering, not just glam but durability.
The interior is clean and modest. Polished in classic black finish, the dashboard feels very prim. The leather-coated steering wheels provide notable comfort.
The M240i is more popular Coupe version. Happily, this car model is also available in Convertible type for the car enthusiasts who want a little bit of sunshine and breeze while driving.
The headlights and taillights are in LED making your driving experience smooth even in low lights. The interiors are upholstered in leather with supreme comfortability.
- Weight: 1,995 kg.
- Length: 4.4 meters
- Height: 1.4 meters
- Width: 1.7 meters
What’s more important in a car is not just the skin, but what is underneath it and that means the engine built under the skin and how well it provides comfortable and precise handling. Here are some of the remarkable engine specifications of the BMW M240i Coupe.
- 335 horsepower 3.0-liter 6-cylinder engine
- Rear-wheel drive (RWD) is the standard version. The car is also available with all-wheel drive (AWD).
- The car can go from flat zero to 60mph in just 4.3 seconds
- M240i uses petrol for fuel
- The vehicle can store up to 52 liters of fuel
- The M240i can go up to 155mph (approximately 250 km/h).
Expectedly, being one of the flagship luxury cars of BMW, the M240i costs an arm and a leg ranging over $35,000. This model is some thousand dollars (~$8000) cheaper than the M2.
Is the M240i worth buying? Of course. Some may think that M2 is way better than the M240i. While that is true (at least in some small aspects), the M240i would not frustrate. It’s a junior version of the M2 who wants to save some thousand dollars from the expensive price tag of the M2 which will be totally sold out after 12 months.
The M240i is stunningly perfect from the shape, engine, to handling. The price is reasonable, and the quality is superb! After all, that’s what you would expect from BMW.
