The BMW M140i 3-door.

The M Performance model is the BMW 1 Series 3-door at its absolute best. Sporting an inline 6-cylinder 3.0 litre engine, M Sport suspension (including 10mm lowering) and M Sport brakes with coloured brake calipers, it's fine-tuned for a thrilling ride.


Select features from the M Sport package have been accentuated with exclusive M Performance details. 
Exclusive 18-inch M light alloy wheels in Ferric Grey with Michelin Pilot Super Sport tyres look just as much at home on the racetrack as the road, and the M aerodynamics package with special front air intakes make the most of the car’s lines. Dual exhaust pipe finishers in Dark Chrome, and exterior badging in Chrome and BMW Individual High-gloss Shadow provide finishing touches to an imposing exterior.
Inside, sport seats in Dakota leather upholstery, an M multifunction steering wheel, and a shortened gear lever sporting the ‘M’ logo await. An Aluminium Hexagon interior trim with Blue or Black highlights echoes the dynamic aesthetics of the exterior, and the door sill and instrument cluster feature exclusive ‘M140i’ badging.


Features in accent colour.

The side air inlets of the aerodynamic front apron are fitted with exclusive design elements in Ferric Grey.

18'' M Double-spoke 436 M wheels.

Exclusive light-alloy wheels in Ferric Grey and the M Sport braking system optimally transfer acceleration and braking to the road (225/40 ZR18 front, 245/35 ZR18 rear).

Exterior mirror caps in
Ferric Grey.

Aerodynamically designed curved mirror caps finished in Ferric Grey offer barely any resistance
to the airstream.

"M" logo in Dark Chrome.

The "M" logo in Dark Chrome elegantly accentuates that the BMW M140i 3 and 5-door are M Performance models.

Exhaust pipe finishers.

Exclusive to the BMW 1 Series, exhaust pipe finishers in Black Chrome indicate the modified exhaust system. Elimination of the middle silencer and intelligent air vent control together produce a charismatic sound.

Model designation in Dark Chrome.

Specific model designation on the rear in Dark Chrome underlines the close relationship to BMW M.


The BMW M140i features an M Performance TwinPower Turbo inline 3.0 litre petrol engine that combines a TwinScroll turbocharger with Valvetronic, double-VANOS and High Precision Injection.
This intelligent package boosts the combined fuel consumption figures of the BMW M140i with 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission to 39.8mpg with CO2 emissions of 163 g/km. It also permits impressive performance: 250 kW (340 hp), maximum torque of 500 Nm and acceleration from 0-62mph in 4.6 seconds (xDrive 4.4 seconds).

Driving dynamics.

The BMW M140i embodies sporty driving pleasure and exceptional driving dynamics.
Lowering its chassis by 10mm brings the power more directly to the road, while the M Sport brakes with Blue brake calipers and M logo guarantee maximum deceleration. Variable sports steering with modifications to the power steering and self-centring movement give more feedback for exceptional control.
To translate the outstanding engine performance into impressive driving dynamics, springs and stabilisers have been precisely adjusted to the high-torque 6-cylinder engine’s needs. Extra agility comes from the specially tuned and lowered M sport suspension, and the variable sport steering including Servotronic.
