This new entry for BMW is just about ready for prime time but before it can go on sale, it had to be shown off. We were live in Detroit this week to see the M235i and 228i in person for the first time. Read our first impressions from the Detroit Auto Show now.

2014 BMW M235i Spied Testing on Public Roads

One of the most anticipated cars coming later this year is certainly the M235i which will be a smaller BMW 2 Series M Performance automobile. As you can see in the photos, this test M235i has the signature wheels, M sport brakes and twin exhaust pipes which are all present in M Performance vehicles.

The 2 Series will be going into production later this year starting in November at the Leipzig plant. The United States will see two variants - the 228i featuring the N20 TwinPower turbo motor and the M235i will most likely have the same N55 powered motor as the M135i that has gotten rave reviews in Europe.
