BMW 330i M Sport local assembled arrives at RM288,800
When BMW Malaysia launched the fully imported 330i (model G20) at the end of March this year, BMW enthusiast in Malaysia were not too happy with its selling price of RM328,000 and its available specifications. After the previous 2 years of being ‘spoilt’ by the attractive pricing of the previous model 330e M Performance Edition which was priced just RM258,800 (this was the last batch pricing at launch in January 2019) and came with a long list of features and the fuel saving plug-in hybrid system.
Now, after months of little sales interest with the fully imported RM328,000 G20, BMW Malaysia brings a locally assembled 330i M Sport at a rather attractive price and a good equipment offering.
The iconic sports sedan.
The locally assembled BMW 330i M Sport upholds the same level of innovation in technology and stunning characteristics as the model’s imported counterpart, including the unmistakable athletic design and dynamic performance synonymous to the iconic sports sedan.
The premium sports sedan from BMW offers 18-inch M light alloy wheels in Double-spoke style 790 M bi-colour Orbit Grey with mixed tyres, complete with blue-painted callipers that display the M logo on the M Sport brakes. The sports sedan also features adaptive LED headlights with Bi-LED technology.
The highlights of the New BMW 330i M Sport include the notably larger kidney grille and slim, three-dimensional taillights fitted in an L shape with emphasis on the use of smoked glass. The aerodynamic spoiler lip affixed to the rear along with two distinct 90-millimetre tailpipes give the New BMW 330i M Sport a sporting edge as well.
Powered by a 2.0-litre TwinPower Turbo petrol engine, the New BMW 330i M Sport generates a top speed of 250 km/h and outputs 190 kW/258 hp with a peak torque of 400 Nm from 1,550 to 4,400 rpm. It also makes the century sprint in 5.8 seconds. With the updated 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, the vehicle only consumes 6.4 litre of fuel for every 100km. The reduced carbon emissions of 147g/km is optimised by a particulate filter included in the exhaust treatment system.
Owners can look forward to a lighter, more rigid vehicle as the total weight has been reduced by 25 kilograms (kerb weight of 1,545kg). With a drag coefficient of 0.23, the vehicle boasts best-in-class aerodynamics. The rigidity levels of the body structure and suspension attachment have been greatly enhanced as well, with a 50:50 axle load distribution and a low centre of gravity. The M Sport suspension will highlight BMW’s first-ever lift-related dampers that exemplify an innovative damping system.
Featuring high-level connectivity and an immaculate interior design language, the New BMW 330i M Sport boasts the M Sport leather steering wheel with multifunction and shift paddles along with ambient interior lighting. Amongst the key features unique to its segment are the Intelligent Personal Assistant and Digital Key, as well as the safety innovation offered in the form of the Park Assist and Reverse Assist, afforded by the Parking Assistant system.
The BMW Live Cockpit Professional is available as well, combining the customisable and situation-linked displays on a fully-digital 12.3-inch instrument cluster and 10.25-inch touch sensitive Control Display. All these features are made available in conjunction with the latest BMW Operating System 7.0.
