The New BMW 1 Series M135i is a very different kettle of fish from its predecessor. Gone are the big six-cylinder engine and rear-wheel drive, replaced by a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder that's coupled to a four-wheel drive system.
That means the lairy, tail-happy handling of the M140i is gone, but don’t worry. In its place is a confidence-inspiring grasp of the road that allows you to fire the M135i out of tight bends with far less drama. Let’s also note that, while inclement conditions would slow your progress considerably in the old car, the same can’t be said of its successor.
