Building atop the success of the M135i, the new BMW M235i will follow its steps when it comes to drivetrains. While the M235i rear-wheel drive was just unveiled at 2014 Detroit Auto Show, the xDrive version of the super hot and compact coupe might arrive in the near future.

When asked by Road & Track about the handling of the M235i in snow, a BMW executive said ““Oh, sure, we can put xDrive in the M235i.” We reached out to BMW North America for confirmation the only reply we received was “No Comment”….followed by a wink.

Now we can’t fully read into their reply, but by using our own sources and common sense, we are extremely confident that a BMW M235i xDrive will arrive this year.
