AutoGuide reviews the 2014 BMW M235i [video]


Found this review by AutoGuide of the 2014 BMW M235i Coupe.

Here is the quick version of the review:

Pros
- Power
- Sound
- Handling
- Not as raw as the M1 Coupe

Cons
- Not as raw as the M1 Coupe
- Wish there was a hatchback option

Quote:
On sale starting in March, the base price of the 228i is $33,025 after destination charges, which is roughly $600 more than the 1 Series coupe it replaces and $600 less than a BMW 320i sedan. The M235i requires a big step-up in price to $44,025 after destination charges, but that is still significantly cheaper than the 1 M Coupe was three years ago.

The new M235i may lack a smidge of the no-compromises performance found in the 1 M Coupe, but it is a better all-around package. It truly can be considered a spiritual successor to the E46 M3, just begging for a head-to-head comparison with that decade old sports car. Having yet to try the new M3 or M4, we can safely say the M235i is the most engaging car in the BMW lineup today.

Thanks for the review, good info.

I like the comparison to the E46 M3, one of my all-time favorite BMW M cars.

On the plus side they did improve on their steering system which makes it feel more simple, natural and even refined.
