The 2015 BMW 228i is a rocket on the track.  Clocking much faster than expected 0-60 MPH times and steady handling prowess, the baby BMW evokes feelings of Bimmers past.

Check out this TFLcar 0-60 MPH test and track review of the surprising 2015 BMW 228i:

Powered by a 240-HP turbocharged DOHC 16-valve inline-4, the 2015 BMW 228i has ample scoot to move the 3,300-plus-pound coupe forward with authority. If it feels this fast at high altitude, we’d love to see what it can do at sea level.

With a 50.8/49.2 front/rear weight distribution and sport-tuned suspension, the 228i tucks neatly into corners and finds confidence-inspiring levels of balance and agility.

Fuel economy for the rear-wheel-drive model is 23/36 city/highway MPG, a respectable number within its class. Competition for the 2015 BMW 228i includes the 2015 Audi A3 and the 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLA250.

Ultimately, it depends on whether you desire a harder-edged sports coupe (BMW), a solid daily driver (A3), or a supple tourer (CLA250). Either way, the 2015 BMW 228i is proof positive that the company still has their heart in the right place.
