CAR recently undertook a premium hot hatch comparison, featuring the M135i against the Mercedes A45 AMG and the Audi S3 (full review). Here’s how the trio stack up on paper:

The M135i serves up 320 HP and 332 LB-FT (450 Nm) from its 3 liter turbo N55 engine, mated to the 8 speed automatic ZF transmission and is RWD.

The Mercedes comes with the most power, but is also the most expensive out of this group, powered by a 360 HP / 332 LB-FT (450 Nm) 2-liter … CONTINUED

In this video review Autoexpress tests the BMW M135i against the Mercedes A45 AMG – with a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine it’s going to be a stern rival for the BMW.

The BMW gets a six-cylinder engine, revs to 7000rpm but peak torque is at just 1300rpm, so it has instant power. It does come in manual, but we’ve got the eight-speed automatic gearbox. Autoexpress took it around our track in just 1 minute 14 seconds.

To say that the BMW F20/F21 1 Series front end styling is polarizing would be an understatement. Initial reaction to the BMW 2 Series front styling, revealed last month in our spy photos, have generally been more favorable.

All of which begs the question – how would the F20/F21 look with all or some of the 2 Series’ front end styling? And might the renders below preview what the F20/F21 LCI facelift may resemble?

From 1ADDICTS member and M135i owner mjh93sa:

With increasing numbers of the M-Lite on the road, and ever more people taking delivery it seemed that is was time to put together a meet with the aim of getting a few together in the same place to act geeky, compare cars, options, mpg figures and so on (as well as have a bit of a drive).

So organised primarily by TMP, and some collaborative route planning we took on the welsh valleys … CONTINUED

AC Schnitzer tunes the M135i hatchback to 360 HP. The extra power drops the 0-100kmh (0-62mph) time from 4.9 seconds to 4.7 seconds and the 80-180kmh time from 12.9 seconds to 10.8 seconds.

Here’s a video demo.

Our latest prototype spotting is a surprise… and it isn’t. It appears that BMW is already updating the F20/F21 1 Series hatchback’s front end look, much earlier than the usual LCI facelift schedule.

That BMW is updating a model’s look only 1-2 years after introduction is a surprise, but given the negative reactions that the 1 Series’ front end (headlights, in particular) has garnered, perhaps this sighting isn’t so surprising afterall.

Our spy photos clearly show that the front end (and only the front) of the F20/F21 … CONTINUED
