BMW M235i Gains xDrive All-Wheel Drive

BMW is making some additions to its lineup this summer.

First off, the German automaker is adding an all-wheel drive xDrive variant to its venerable M235i sports car, which has only been available in rear-wheel drive form until now. Expect the same powerplant under the hood, a 3.0-liter twin-turbo inline-six with 320 hp paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Thanks to the all-wheel drive, the M235i xDrive will reach 62 mph from a standstill in 4.6 seconds, 0.2 seconds faster than the rear-wheel-drive variant.

Options on the 7 Series Exclusive Edition include Merino fine grain leather and an Alcantara roof liner. The 7 Series Exclusive Edition will be offered with any available engine choice and either wheelbase lengths.
