2018 BMW M140i hot hatch

2018 BMW M140i hot hatchBMW’s repositioning of its hot hatch puts it closer to the updated Volkswagen Golf R, which will be priced at $55,490 when it lands in August. That said, the M140i is the only rear-wheel drive six-cylinder in the segment and is virtually without a direct competitor. It boasts significantly more grunt than the R, with 250kW/500Nm on board compared to the Golf’s 213kW/380Nm.

Also inside is a high-gloss black centre stack, plus tweaks to the design with new upholstery stitching and chrome elements for the electric window controls.

Exterior changes run to the now standard inclusion of LED Headlights on all models, the top-spec M140i gaining adaptive LEDs standard.

MW Group Australia CEO, Marc Werner was positive the M140i’s combination of rear-wheel drive, powerful six-cylinder engine and new price point will help increase sales: “BMW Australia is especially proud of the sharpened price point for the turbocharged six-cylinder M140i, bringing its superb performance and dynamics under $60,000 for the first time,” he said.
