BMW’s development boss has revealed the company is unlikely to offer a competitor to the Audi A3 Sedan and Mercedes CLA.

I was there representing BIMMERPOST! I got to drive the M235i on the street and at the Las Vegas Motor Speedway in both the oval and the infield configurations. The 435i convertible was driven on the street only.

This post will focus primarily on the M235i’s driving experience. I will also be producing a video review in the coming weeks.
