M235i outpoints 911, Corvette in CR testing, becomes highest-scoring BMW ever

Filed under: Coupe, Performance, BMW, Luxury



Good news just keeps coming for BMW, as Consumer Reports has just handed out a stunner of a verdict - the M235i, a spritely, 320-horsepower coupe that starts at just $43,100 has bested the likes of the Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and Porsche 911, vehicles that can easily cost twice as much and come to battle with considerably more power.

CR awarded the spiritual successor to the 1 Series M Coupe a score of 98 out of 100, beating out the 911 and the Stingray by three and six points, respectively. In fact, the M235i is remarkably close to the Tesla Model S' 99, making it one of the highest scores CR has ever handed out. It's also, not surprisingly, the highest-rated BMW ever.

Of the M235i's many attributes, Consumer Reports cited the car's performance potential as well as its quiet ride and comfort for front-seat passengers. While it's a shock to no one, CR called out the limited space in the backseats as well as some finicky controls as this Bimmer's biggest shortcomings.

Do you agree with Consumer Reports' score? Have your say below in the Comments.M235i outpoints 911, Corvette in CR testing, becomes highest-scoring BMW ever originally appeared on Autoblog on Fri, 27 Jun 2014 09:30:00 EST. Please see our terms for use of feeds.
