BMW M235i vs. Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG vs. Subaru WRX STI

MotorTrend compares the new BMW M235i against the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG and Subaru WRX STI. Let’s start with the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG. The high-selling four-door coupe is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder pumping out an impressive 355 h...

MotorTrend compares the new BMW M235i against the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG and Subaru WRX STI. Let’s start with the Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG. The high-selling four-door coupe is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder pumping out an impressive 355 hp and 332 ft-lbs of torque. 0-60 time is just 4.5 seconds. This motor is rated at 178 hp per liter and Mercedes states that this is the most powerful four-cylinder production engine. Subaru WRX STI comes with a 2.5 liter turbocharged flat-4 producing 305 hp at 6000 rpm and 290 lb-ft @ 4000 rpm. It takes 4.6 seconds to run from 0 to 60 mph.

BMW M235i vs. Mercedes Benz CLA45 AMG vs. Subaru WRX STI

Last but not least, the BMW M235i, latest addition to the M Performance Automobiles family, which uses a 3.0 liter turbocharged six-inline producing 322 hp and 332 lf-ft of torque. The M235i is capable of 0-60 in 4.8 seconds when optioned with the 8-speed sport automatic, even though MotorTrend reports 4.4 seconds. Here is an excerpt from their review: Comprehending the M’s character took little effort when hustling among the canyons: a few degrees tilt of the thick helm, a stab of the attentive throttle, one snappy downshift from the eight-speed automatic. Everything’s tuned for dynamism. You feel it. You hear it. The rear 245/35R18 Michelin Pilot SuperSports dug in feverishly, tidily converting the 3.0-liter inline-six’s 330 lb-ft into a smooth surge. The M235i meticulously sliced through the bends, with variable steering that served up an ideal weightiness, albeit with little tactility. “This is a solid-driving car,” Lago opined. “Good fundamentals: powerful engine, rear drive. It’s the basics.” The M put down numbers that would make an extinct 335-horse 1 Series M nervous. Sixty mph came in just 4.4 seconds (the 1M did it in 4.2), and the quarter mile in 13.0 seconds at 106.6 mph (the 1M did 12.8 seconds at 110.2 mph). It ran our figure eight in 24.9 seconds at an average 0.78 g — the 1M did it in 24.7 seconds at an average 0.81 g. The two posted identical lateral acceleration of 0.97 g. Among its two rivals, the M235i was a mid-packer, equaling the STI’s and CLA’s skidpad performances and barely edging out the STI in acceleration. Its brake pedal took some getting used to (too mushy when charging at 10/10ths), but fade was never an issue and its 60-0 braking was the group’s best at 103 feet. We had mixed feelings about its real-world ride quality. “I think it has the worst ride of this group,” said Lieberman. “It’s sprung softer than the STI and AMG, but it just doesn’t eat up bumps as well. Too many secondary motions.” Full review here The article BMW M235i vs. Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG vs. Subaru WRX STI appeared first on BMW BLOG

Motor Trend has just published a comparison of a trio of hot turbocharged cars – the BMW M235i, Mercedes CLA45 AMG and Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition. You can catch the full review at Motor Trend, but here are some M235i highlights and results. The Bavarian Ballerina Comprehending the M’s character took little effort when hustling among the canyons: a few degrees tilt of the thick helm, a stab of the attentive throttle, one snappy downshift from the eight-speed automatic.

Too many secondary motions.” We couldn’t help but think that in a near-luxury car, some, if not all, of the absent amenities—satellite radio, navigation, rearview camera, heated seats — should come standard. And you’d expect that, as an M Performance car, oil and coolant temperature gauges — or even a mechanical limited-slip differential (optional) and bigger brakes (optional) — would be included. Then again, those upgrades will likely be standard weapons in the forthcoming M2′s arsenal. The M235i is two notches above the CLA45 AMG when fun is factored in, mostly for its sublime balance and smooth moves. It’s a superb rear-drive coupe that boosts your heart rate and puts a grin under your nose — just not as hastily as a $38,000 Subaru with gold shoes. Randy’s Notes: “This is the best-handling production BMW I’ve driven in 10 years. This car is well-balanced. What a pleasure!” Streets of Willow Lap: 1:26.37 (compared to CLA45 @ 1:26.20 and WRX STI @ 1:26.12) 3rd Place: Mercedes-Benz CLA45 AMG Big on speed, style, and price; small on emotion. 2nd Place: BMW M235i A well-balanced rear-driver in need of options for pizzazz. 1st Place: Subaru WRX STI Launch Edition: Loud, fast, surefooted, amenity-packed—it typifies fun.

Built for the road, but at home on the racetrack. Here’s the new BMW M4 Coupé being put through its paces at Brands Hatch, proving why ‘M’ really is the most powerful letter in the world. The video also features BMW’s M lap timer app showing us the acceleration and G-force graphics. The all-new, 3.0-liter six-cylinder BMW M3 and M4 engine is approximately 10 kilograms lighter than its V-8 predecessor and packs an even stronger punch. With 425 horsepower from 5,500 – 7,300 rpm, 406 lb-ft of torque from 1,850 – 5,500 rpm, and capable of 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds when equipped with the M-DCT transmission (4.1 seconds with standard 6-speed manual).

MotorTrend puts together an interesting comparison between BMW’s entry-level into the U.S. market, 320i, and some other models that are not in the same segment. One is the Mercedes-Benz CLA250, a front-wheel drive four-door coupe. The other two are products not usually considered premium, VW CC and Buick Regal. Sporting a TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine, the new 2014 BMW 320i Sedan went on sale last year and it is the most affordable BMW in the U.S. lineup. The 2.0 liter TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine produces 180 horsepower at 5,000 rpm and 200 lb-ft of torque from 1,250 rpm – 4,500 rpm. 0-60 mph acceleration for the 320i Sedan

Comparison: BMW 320i vs. Buick Regal vs. Mercedes Benz CLA250 vs. Volkswagen CC

is estimated to require only 7.1 seconds with either transmission choice. Top speed is an electronically-limited 130 mph. Fuel consumption is also astonishing: city/highway 24/36 mpg EPA.

Comparison: BMW 320i vs. Buick Regal vs. Mercedes Benz CLA250 vs. Volkswagen CC

Here is an excerpt from their review which puts the BMW 320i ahead of its competitors. That the CLA250 was the only one to show an external stress marker wasn’t totally surprising. Before leaving on the road trip, each car had been sent down a quiet but beat-up-in-sections road at 65 mph to judge ride quality. The CC and Regal were plush all around, able to float over dips and bumps, with the Buick heaving up and down a little more than the Volkswagen. Even though the 320i came fitted with the passive M sport suspension — unique springs, shock absorbers, and bushings, with 0.2/1mm thicker front/rear anti-roll bars — as part of the $1300 Sport Package, it rode confidently on its staggered 18-inch wheels. The BMW suspension delivers a reassuring ride that’s more adept than those of the Regal or CC at snuffing motions after the wheel impact, rather than letting the car oscillate on its own. The purest of BMW purists have harangued that the current F30 3 Series isn’t as laser-focused on handling and as rewarding a driver’s driver as the E30, E36, E46, and E90. We counter the F30 is still an admirable all-around vehicle. …. First and second place were clear. First goes to the 320i, with its easygoing, composed chassis. It’s the most eager to go driving in by a long shot. Knocks against it: It’s weaker on wind-noise abatement and doesn’t come with as many features, although there are plenty of a la carte options to inflate the final price. Second sits the Regal, exceptionally outfitted with goodies including a heated steering wheel and AC power receptacle and boasting ride comfort for all ages. There’s no embarrassment in (inadvertently) taking it through a canyon. 4th Place: Mercedes-Benz CLA250 It’ll be a star when rough-riding luxury cars become all the rage. 3rd Place: Volkswagen CC 2.0T R-Line Beauty craving more substance. 2nd Place: Buick Regal T Nearly bucked the “3 Series always win” trend. 1st Place: BMW 320i Prepared for any road, anywhere, any time.

2014 Geneva Motor Show: BMW M4 Coupe

The 2015 BMW M4 Coupe also comes to the Geneva Motor Show. The first M4 Coupe and the third generation M3 Sedan debuted in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. BMW M4 produces 425 horsepower from 5,500 – 7,300 rpm, 406 lb-ft of torque from 1,850 ...

The 2015 BMW M4 Coupe also comes to the Geneva Motor Show. The first M4 Coupe and the third generation M3 Sedan debuted in January at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. BMW M4 produces 425 horsepower from 5,500 – 7,300 rpm, 406 lb-ft of torque from 1,850 – 5,500 rpm, and is capable of 0-60mph in 3.9 seconds when equipped with the M-DCT transmission (4.1 seconds with standard 6-speed manual). The new six-cylinder engine can be paired to a manual or DCT. Manual transmission is based on the BMW 1M and it’s 12 kg lighter than the gearbox found in previous E90 / E92 M3.

2014 Geneva Motor Show: BMW M4 Coupe

It uses a twin blade clutch and upgraded oil system. If one orders the manual transmission instead of dual clutch gearbox, it will also save 25 kg (55 lbs). The new feature on the manual transmission, automatic rev matching, is only enabled in Sport and Comfort driving mode, but disabled in Sport+ mode. Thanks to a lightweight design, M4 has a weight saving of around 80 kilograms over the outgoing M3. In addition to using CFRP in certain components to save weight – both M3 and M4 get a carbon roof – the suspension components have been redesigned and are made in aluminum. M engineers say the BMW M3 and M4 are 10 sec faster at Nurburgring than the outgoing E90 / E92 M3. The F80 2015 BMW M3 Sedan will cost $62,000 and 2015 BMW M4 has a base price $64,200. Destination and handling is $925. The two M brothers will go on sale in summer of this year.

New photos emerge from the 2014 Chicago Auto Show. Just a few days ago we published exclusive shots of the new 2015 BMW M3 and 2015 BMW M4, and now, courtesy of Unsecene Media, we have new high-res photos of the “two M brothers” to share with you. The F80 M3 is displayed in its launch color, Yas Marina Blue, while the F82 M4 Coupe sports the Black Sapphire paint job. The F80 M3 has a width of 1877 mm versus 1870 mm for the M4, and furthermore, the rear-end features a wider bodykit to bring it to the same dimensions as the M4. BMW M4 stands out with its sleek design and elegant coupe roofline, while the F80 M3 is shaping up to be one of the best looking sporty sedans on the street.

BMW has reverted to an inline six cylinder for the new M3 and M4. But unlike the S54 in the E46 M3, the new S55 is turbocharged. Based on the N55 six cylinder, the S55 utilizes VANOS and Valvetronic as well as gasoline direct injection in the cylinder heads. BMW M3 and M4 Engine Sound Unlike the N55′s twin-scroll single turbocharger, the S55 utilizes two turbochargers, one turbo per three cylinders. The S55 is set to deliver 431 HP and 406 lb-ft of torque. To ensure that nothing untoward happens on the bottom end the S55 employs a forged steel crankshaft. The torque developed by the S55 is fully available from 1,850 to 5,500 RPM which leads one to believe that the turbos selected for use on the S55 are slightly larger than the ones employed on the N54 motor of yore.

A BMW M5 F10 goes head-to-head against the Porsche 911 Carrera 2S. The Porsche 991 uses a direct injection 3.8-liter flat-six engine from the Carrera S model, with power increasing to 400 PS (294 kW; 395 hp). A Power Kit (option X51) is available for the Carrera S, increasing power to 430 hp, but the car raced here was stock. New for the first time on a 911 model are electronic parking brakes (button selectable) and 20 inch diameter wheels. The car also features a new seven-speed manual gearbox, a first for a production car, along with an improved seven-speed Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK) dual clutch transmission. The F10 BMW M5 is powered by a high-revving 4.4-liter turbocharged unit that uses the BMW M TwinPower Turbo technology. The engine outputs 560 horsepower from 5,750-7,000 rpm and 680Nm (502 lb-ft) of torque from only 1500rpm. It comes in both manual and 7-speed DCT transmission. Which one takes the win?
