The real pleasure of driving; the BMW M240i that is equipped with a 3.0 liter twin turbocharged engine, that produce 340 HP to the rear wheels, is more than enough for any driver. A real beast. It’s produced by M line, which means high performance. Even though it is produced by this company, the price tag of this car is not as high compared to the bigger size cars from this company. In 2013 BMW had an idea of generating a hot coupe based on BMW series 1. Therefore, the series 2 born by this idea and the high performance it showed compared to the lower performance cars it managed to become an M performance car.

Considering this pertinent and the advantages the M240i brings we can argue on saying that it’s a real asset owning this car. Differently from his competence, the Mercedes A45 AMG, this car does require a high skilled driver in order to achieve his high performance. This is because the A 45 AMG has the technology of a 4 wheel drive, which consist on a permanent traction in all four wheel, distribution the power in order to stay in curve. In the other hand the BMW has rear traction which makes racing more challenging or even dangerous for unskilled drivers.

Furthermore with the specs of the BMW M240i as mentioned before, it is has a 3.0 liter twin turbocharged 6 inline cylinder that produce 369 pd/ft of torque. It can achieve 4.5 seconds from 0-60 mph. Unfortunately, for a car lover, his rival, the A 45 AMG surpass this limits. The A 45 is equipped with a 2.0 turbocharge, 4 inline cylinder engine that produce 381 HP, that achieves 4.2 seconds from 0-60 mph. Again, this is because Mercedes AMG developed the 45 line engines “4matic”, which is traction in 4 wheels permanently. When approaching a curve, the A 45 will always devour the M240i because the BMW will start to drift at a certain speed while the AMG can throttle through the curve.

An aspect that call the attention of many car lovers is the price of this beast. It is just a bit under the prices of his competitor. The BMW is just $49,500 USD while the A 45 is $58,350 USD. Completely underpriced for the performance of the car. If we talk about other competitors such as that Audi s3, which is $50,500 USD, and the CLA 45 AMG, which is $63,000 USD we see how still, the BMW is cheaper. Simply it is abnormal to see this machine under a price tag of $50,000 dollars.

Another pro is the comfort this car can please you with. For a daily drive, it is a car anybody would like. It can ride through Medellin without any problems passing through sewers, speed bumps, etc, of course, without passing them at high speed. It is a 4 seat coupe, with plenty of space both for front and rear passengers. Also it has a 390 litter trunk, in which you can basically fit anything you want, from groceries to three big suitcases. It is a real advantage over the A 45. The only pro from the Mercedes is that it is a 5 seated hatch, the thing is that not with the same space for rear passengers. Also the A 45 has only a 340 litter trunk, that won’t be enough for all needs of the driver.

After owning the M240i for about 8 months, I can say it is a privilege to own one of this cars. You can find extreme power, safety, comfort, luxury, and a nice looking car for a underpriced beast. When talking against his competitors, we can say that it has some pros and cons but over all, it is a real war to death in order to say which one is better to own.
