BMW Malaysia has introduced three new BMW X3 variants and one new BMW X4 variant to the Malaysian market.
The four new locally assembled models with a range of powertrain options named the most popular BMW X models in the world are making their way into Malaysia for the first time.
Hans de Visser, Managing Director of BMW Group Malaysia said, “The BMW X portfolio has long been revered across the globe and especially so in Malaysia for producing some of the most coveted premium Sports Activity Vehicles (SAV). Last year, the BMW X portfolio recorded over 3,200 deliveries in Malaysia – contributing to just over 38% of total deliveries from the BMW brand. This success of the BMW X portfolio signals a strong market within the country, in turn affirming our confidence in expanding and revolutionising the automotive industry here with more local assembly facilities and infrastructure.”
De Visser added, “As we move into a year full of electrification possibilities, BMW Group Malaysia is also thrilled to electrify our locally-assembled BMW X3 for the very first time, while offering different powertrain options for those who prefer different driving experiences. This is reflective of our promise to offer the Power of Choice through our extensive range of petrol, plug-in hybrid (PHEV) and all-electric vehicles in Malaysia.”
Both the new BMW X3 and X4 will come with a new front apron design complete with vertical air intakes. A new bumper and slimmer full-LED headlights adorn the front fascia of the 2022 BMW X3 and X4. The charging port behind the left front wheel discerns the PHEV BMW X3.
The BMW X3 will now come with a new range of alloy wheels all the way up to 20-inches, with full-LED taillights and new larger tailpipes.
The M Sport packages across both models will come with larger air intakes, specific front aprons, new colour options, rims as well as interior trim.
The BMW X3 will receive two new petrol variants:
- X3 sDrive20i - four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo with 184hp and 300Nm of torque
- X3 xDrive30i - four-cylinder TwinPower Turbo with 252hp and 350Nm of torque
Transmission for the BMW X3 sDrive20i comes in the form of an 8-Speed Automatic Steptronic with Automatic Hold Function, while the BMW X3 xDrive30i is equipped with an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission.
