With just weeks ahead of its web debut, the new BMW M235i was spied undisguised. The first 2 Series model was spotted during a video commercial and for the first time it gives us a clear look at its front-end design.

Moving away from the somewhat blend and bulky design of the 1 Series, the 2 Series Coupe shows off sportier lines and more visually pleasant headlights and kidney grille.

The front bumper is dominated by large air intakes with fins, a trend started by the new M6 models, and one we anticipate to see in the upcoming M3 and M4. The prototype also features blue M Performance brake calipers and M-specific wheels.

On the side, the BMW M235i has the M badge but no Air Breathers as seen on the latest M package models.

Even without having a 360 view of the car, the BMW M235i is without a doubt sleeker and sportier than the 1 Series, similar to how the current generation 1 Series Coupe differentiate itself from the former 1 Series hatch models.

The 2 Series vehicles will be driven by a rear-wheel drive architecture with the possibility of the coupe to be paired with the xDrive system.

Product of the BMW 2 Series kicks off in November and the U.S. market will get the M235i and 228i models.

    It’s nice to see that they’re departing it greatly from the hatch. This looks great!

    Hopefully it isn’t any bigger than the current 1 series (near perfect size). Would defeat the purpose.

      I agree, this is a step in the right direction if it is close in size to the current 1-ers or at least no bigger than an E46.

      It could use more distinctive headlights.

      • VSBMW13

        If it as big as the E46 (own one and love it), it will be too big. And I agree with your point on the headlights. If they want to be daring stop making them so slim and tiny. Do something that’s a throwback to the E30 if you want to be daring. Another point…please don’t be too heavy either.
