Fans of BMW Malaysia were spoilt for choice during a recent event organised by the German luxury carmaker. Held inside the airplane hangar located at the Royal Malaysian Air Force, the VIPs and select members of the media in attendance were among the first in the country to get up close and personal to the latest powerful models in the stunning BMW X Series portfolio. Booming tunes and flashing lights painted the venue in exciting hues of style and adrenaline to match the spirit of the event.
Taking centerstage was the BMW X4, the second-generation model of the exciting Sports Activity Coupe which made its grand debut back in 2014. The BMW X4 immediately commands attention on the road thanks its brawny build that includes larger kidney grilles, flared wheel housings with 20″ M double-spoke wheels, and a sleek, coupe-like roofline.
Powering the vehicle is a formidable 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engine which generates a maximum power of 252hp with a peak torque output of 350Nm, complemented by an 8-speed Steptronic Sport transmission to enable faster gear changes, and nifty shift paddles on the steering wheel. Priced at MYR380,000, exciting colour choices for the BMW X4 include Alpine White, Carbon Black, Flamenco Red and Phytonic Blue.
The excitement continued with a surprise preview of two additional members in the BMW X Family. This included the powerful BMW X5, which was reported to be the best-selling Sports Activity Vehicle worldwide; followed by the exciting BMW X2 M35i, a compact Sports Activity Coupe designed to deliver dynamic driving performance and pure confidence on the road.
“The performance of the BMW X portfolio in Malaysia has been nothing short of remarkable. Last year, we successfully delivered more than 5,000 units of BMW X vehicles, resulting in a significant double-digit growth of 19%.”
Both the BMW X5 and BMW X2 M35i will be available to test drive at the upcoming BMW X Crew event which will take place at Plaza Arkadia, Desa Park City from June 21 to 23. The vehicles will be out at authorised BMW dealerships nationwide in July and August, respectively.
