BMW has previously shared the specifics of the facelifted M135i but only now we know what to expect visually after several scan images of the car have been spotted around the web.
Just to refresh your memory, in terms of power, 2015 BMW M135i is fitted with a 3.0-liter 6-cylinder petrol engine that is now Euro 6 compliant. It is capable of delivering a power output of 326 HP (240 kW). Note that this is 6 HP (4 kW) more than before. The maximum torque is 450 Nm (332 lb-ft), while the estimated average fuel consumption is that of 8.0 l/100 km.
The rear-wheel drive variant accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (100km/h) in 5.1 seconds when it takes advantage of a 6-speed manual. When it is opted with the imrpoved 8-speed automatic transmission, the car can complete the 0-60 mph run in 4.9 seconds.
Judging from the photos, the new BMW M135i has the same Valencia Orange color as the vehicle which was seen in Germany some time ago. The profile seems to be unchanged but the thing that differentiates the vehicle from the other 1-Series models is the altered front bumper which features bigger air intakes with new chrome trim. The revised silhouette also has redesigned headlamps, L-shaped LED taillights and modified boot hatch. Lastly, there are silver mirror caps and a new rear diffusor as well. The latter arrives in black metallic paint and has a dual exhaust system.
