BMW 430i M Sport To Make Malaysian Debut Soon
Pre-bookings are now open too for this next-gen BMW coupe with a polarising face.
BMW Malaysia has recently announced that it has begun online pre-bookings in anticipation for the local debut of the second-generation G22 4-series coupe. Launched globally in the middle of last year, this sole variant of the normal 4-series currently available for pre-booking is that of the 430i Coupe M Sport.
As with its four-door 3-series counterpart, under the hood of the 430i is not a 3.0 litre straight-six of old, but instead a 2.0 litre turbocharged four-pot that is good for 258 hp and 400 Nm of torque. Paired with an 8-speed Steptronic Sport automatic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels, 0-100 km/h for this coupe is achieved in a respectable 4.9 seconds and can pull its way up to a top-speed of 250 km/h.
Continuing on the M Sport part of the name, this particular 4-er is fitted with the usual sporty aesthetic accessories that come with this particular performance package. The notable highlights include M Sport suspension and brakes that are hidden behind 19-inch dual-tone M double-spoke alloys, large side intakes and more aggressively-styled front and rear bumpers, with the latter being complete with integrated circular exhaust tips.
Other standard exterior features include LED headlights, LED taillights and a powered sunroof, not to mention the additional black exterior highlights as part of the BMW Individual high-gloss Shadow Line trim.
Stepping inside, an M leather steering wheel and M specific pedals are the extent of the M Sport package within the interior of this coupe. The cabin of 430i M Sport also features dual-zone climate control, electrically-operated front seats, ambient lighting, BMW ConnectedDrive with the BMW Live Cockpit digital instrument cluster, a heads-up display, and Telephony with Wireless Charging. Driving and Parking Assistant are also standard on this particular BMW.
Available with or without the Innovation package, prices for this Bavarian bruiser with its lung-sized kidney grille are RM 454,800.00 and RM 418,000 respectively. For the extra RM 36,800, the Innovation Package adds a Laserlight LED headlights, Leather Vernasca upholstery, Harmon Kardon surround sound system, BMW’s Connected Package Professional, High Beam Assistant and a Sensatec instrument panel.
Pre-bookings for the BMW 430i M Sport locally are open from now till the 18th of March. These pre-bookings can be made through the BMW Shop Online with a pre-booking fee of RM 1,000.
