BMW has announced the addition of 2021 BMW M135i xDrive Pure and 2021 BMW M235i xDrive Pure models to its line-up.

The new M Pure treatment gives buyers a bundle of standard equipment, but at a $5000 saving over the standard models.

The BMW M135i xDrive Pure is priced at $63,990 plus on-road costs, while the BMW M235i xDrive Pure is priced at $67,990 plus on-road costs.

On the outside, the M135i xDrive Pure and M235i xDrive Pure come with the M Sport exterior treatment, 19-inch alloy wheels, and M Sport brakes.

Inside, drivers will get the thicker M Sport steering wheel, M Sport seats, black Alcantara and cloth 'Trigon' upholstery, and 'Illuminated Boston' highlights.

A Driving Assistant package gives owners lane departure warning, lane change warning, approach control warning with low-speed autonomous braking, rear cross-traffic warning, rear collision warning, and speed limit information.

Parking assistant is standard with front and rear parking sensors, a rear view camera, and semi-autonomous parallel parking.

Both models are powered by a 225kW/450Nm 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine, with an eight-speed torque-converter automatic and all-wheel-drive. A front limited-slip differential aids grip.

While standard M135i xDrive and M235i xDrive models are $5000 dearer than the M Pure variants, the extra cost gains a panoramic sunroof, adaptive LED headlights with high-beam assist, 'Dakota' leather interior, and a Harmon/Kardon sound system.

This comes after BMW raised prices of the 1 Series and 2 Series range in June. Despite less standard equipment, the new M Pure models come in cheaper than the pre-June pricing.

The BMW M135i xDrive Pure and M235i xDrive Pure will be available from the third quarter of 2020.
