[VIDEO] The Smoking Tire drives the BMW M240i

Objectively, the new BMW M240i surpasses its predecessor in every manner, making it an intriguing car. However, BMW has unsettled car lovers with its unique looks and luxurious appeal. Especially because it is even more expensive than its predecessor. So The Smoking Tire’s Matt Farah and Zack Klapman test drive the new 2022 BMW M240i to see if it meets all the standards.

Some of the people who tested it were impressed, calling it BMW’s best non-M car at the moment. With its remarkable 382 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque, thanks to its amazing B58 engine, it rivals the performance of real M cars. The M240i also has an excellent all-wheel drive. But is the BMW M240i’s driving experience worth the price?

Compared to the previous generation, the new BMW M240i is unlikely to improve much on paper. Apart from the fact that it is only available with automatic transmission, it is also heavier and has all-wheel drive. That’s a recipe for trouble in the car enthusiast world. On the other hand, it’s pretty fantastic on the road, especially as twisty as the gorgeous track in the video.

Its suspension seems to be the car’s most attractive feature. The M240i remains flat and confident while absorbing bumps. Even more impressively, it maintains its contact patch even on uneven surfaces. In other words, even when most cars lose traction, the M240i never loses its grip, allowing it to drive consistently.

Yes, the new BMW M240i is not perfect. The steering is a little too numb and the brakes are a little too weak for its performance level. But for a sports coupe that can do everything, the 2022 BMW M240i is really fast. Overall, the BMW M240i is comfortable, high quality and an excellent total package.
