What’s The Difference Between The BMW 228i And The M235i?

Like every BMW model separated by a core and an M edition, the key difference between the 2021 BMW 228i and the M235i stems from performance.

That’s not to say either lacks the performance ethos of BMW. The core 2021 BMW 2 Series 228i xDrive comes equipped with a 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine that delivers lively 228 horsepower and 258 lb-ft of torque figures to transform even the most mundane commutes into an event to savor. Charmed with the xDrive moniker, intelligent all-wheel drive comes standard no matter which 2 Series Gran Coupe you end up choosing. Of course, the 228i also endows you with luxury and sophistication at every touchpoint with SensaTec upholstery and Active Driving Assistant.

For those craving to tap into our motorsports lineage, the 2021 BMW 2 Series M235i xDrive will more than impress. 301 horsepower and 331 lb-ft of torque await your command via the BMW M Twinpower Turbo inline 4-cylinder engine. It could be argued the M Sport Suspension, Brakes, and Steering components play the chief role in elevating driving dynamics, but there’s no debating the M235i defies expectations in the athletics department. To augment your drive even further, the interior receives leather upholstery.
