A big reason why the BMW M140i has such a lovable character is that it has a comparatively huge engine for its class – a 3.0-litre straight six petrol. As if the capacity wasn’t enough, it’s also turbocharged to produce 340hp – a fair bit more than the 306hp Mercedes-AMG A35. 0-62mph takes 4.6 seconds in the M140i, which is slightly quicker than the AMG A35, although that’s perfect conditions.
