    The new F22 M235i coupe spotted undisguised and without camo - Hot or not? Pictures

    So the "successor" to the E82 1-Series in the USA will be the F22 2-Series. Yes, the new 1-Series hatback will not be coming over to the USA so the 2-Series coupe will fill that void as the spiritual successor. This car will compete with the Mercedes-Benz CLA as well as the Audi A3 sedan. The M235i version you see here will likely share the exact same drivetrain as the F10 M135i which means a 320 horsepower N55 3.0 liter turbocharged and direct injected inline-6.

    The styling of the car looks to be a bit of a blend of F30 3-Series and F32 4-Series although smaller. The headlights takes F30 inspiration but do not go all the way to the grille giving an edgy look to the corners that is aggressive. This will be a pretty good looking car and a great entry level BMW especially if the weight is kept fairly low. It may end up being the most fun car to drive in the BMW lineup.

    This is going to be good. Although, one may want to take off the little M logos on the quarter panels.

    I'm a really big fan of this car. I'm just interested to see what motor goes in the M2. Will it be a detuned M4 motor or will it be a sooped up N55? Or will it have it's own dedicated motor? I find the last very doubtful.

    Mechanically it should be identical to the M135i so yeah 315-320 horsepower N55, rear or all wheel drive, 6MT or 8AT, adaptive dampers, etc. As for whether this is hot or not, I think this may be the best looking BMW in the entire lineup. I generally prefer small cars so the proportions are just excellent for me.

    I like it a lot... Glad to see they dropped the connected headlights-kidney grille design. Hopefully the 4-series will get the same treatment

    The 4-Series headlight design is already revealed and it is connected.

    They fixed the pot-bellied look that is my main gripe about my 1. I like it... Don't like that they put an "M" on the name though.

    I think it looks awesome! An M2 with some wider fender flares and a detuned M4 engine please! I've already hinted to my wife that she needs to trade in her 535 for an M2. Need a brother to the 1M (super fake M car)...Plus I hate her 5 series...it huge and boring...is comfy on long trips though.

    I think the new m135 is lighter than the outgoing model so there is hope for this to be lighter. Hopefully the M2 gets a CF roof this time.

    If we are going by looks....I think the 5 and 6 are damn good looking cars....$#@!ing huge ass boats...but good looking cars. Hopefully the electric steering doesn't $#@! it in the ass.

    Detuned M4 engine would just make this step all over the M4 and BMW carefully positioned the M3 to not step on the M6. So... if an M version comes I think a tuned N20 makes all the more sense especially when positioned against the CLA45 AMG and the Audi S3.

    Maybe BMW will get their balls back as an engine builder and try to show what they can do with a four cylinder as AMG set the bar absurdly high with theirs.
