The six-cylinder engine in the 135i is the same 300-hp turbocharged unit as in the 335i, giving a top speed of 155 mph and a 0-to-62-mph time of way too fast. Externally, this one is differentiated from lesser siblings by dual chrome tailpipes, chrome-plated grille slats, and seventeen-inch wheels and tires, while there are sport seats and a leather sport steering wheel inside. Active Steering will be an option. Don't expect to see the hatchback version of this car in the U.S., but it is likely we will see a sedan, a coupe, and a convertible version sometime next year.
