The all-new BMW M135i will be competing alongside the VW Golf R on its arrival at the Frankfurt Motor Show, Germany.
The 2019 BMW M135i will be getting an exhibition space for launching at the upcoming 2019 Frankfurt Motor Show which will commence 12 September and end 22 September. The new model is coming, fitted with a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine, coupled with an all-wheel drive. This will mark the death of its former model which features a straight-six /rear wheel drive. With this, the all-new M135i will be rivaling directly with the likes of the Mercedes AMG A 45 and Volkswagen Golf R.The exclusive photos shared by Naijauto on this article is a peep into how the BMW M135i will look like.

The turbocharged 2.0-liter engine powering the new M135i model will be producing a maximum power of 302bhp with a torque of 450Nm. When you compare it to its predecessor, the M140i model, there's a performance deficit of 33 horsepower and 50Nm of torque. However, BMW has already made provision for improved acceleration, with a new four-wheel drive system and an 8-speed automatic transmission.

The all-wheel drive (AWD) set up of the 2019 BMW M135i won't be offering a rear-wheel drive mode like the new M3. Again, the powertrain given to the model could be said to have been done on purpose by BMW, considering the German automaking company's potential to provide an I series model potent enough to sit above the M135i with a maximum power of 400bhp.

In a bid to maintain body control and the quality of ride, BMW will be upgrading the I series with a more rigid body shell (it's having a boomerang rear strut), an improved steering response a stability control system that has been revised.
And for an update on the model's styling, it's coming with wider side skirts, larger M-Sport alloy wheels, an aggressive front, and back bumper and an enormous twin-exit exhaust system sticking out from a rear diffuser.
