Slight price drop comes with it. The sports business sedan tempts yet again
The latest BMW to be assembled in Malaysia is the 530i M Sport, pushing the number of CKD model/variant count of the premium brand to 11. With this development, the price of the sole G30 BMW 5 Series variant in Malaysia drops from its CBU launch price of RM398,800 to RM388,800.
Carryovers from the CBU version includes the M aerodynamic components, M Sport brake, M light alloy wheels, M pedals, and M leather-wrapped steering wheel.
Driver-assist systems namely Lane Departure Warning, Lane Change Warning, Approach Control Warning & Person Warning, Collision Warning, Gesture Control, plus the BMW Display Key are all included.
The powertrain naturally still remains the same, a 4-cylinder 2-litre turbo mill that makes 252hp and 350Nm. This goes to the remarkably good eight-speed automatic that has been in use for quite a while.
There are four colours available, namely Alpine White, Mediterranean Blue, Sophisto Grey, Carbon Black Metallic, and Bluestone Metallic. Buyers will also get to choose a leather upholstery colour of either black or cognac.
The locally assembled BMW 530i M Sport comes with a five year unlimited mileage warranty and free scheduled service program, two year BMW tyre warranty program, in addition to a five year roadside assistance and accident hotline program.
