4 Se­ries and M4 up­dated

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - News -

BMW Group Malaysia has up­graded the 4 Se­ries Coupé and M4 Coupé with im­prove­ments in ap­pear­ance, per­for­mance, in­te­rior of­fer­ing and con­nec­tiv­ity tech­nol­ogy.

The 4 Se­ries Coupé is of­fered as a 420i and 430i in M Sport trim, priced at RM338,800 and RM408,800 re­spec­tively. The M4 is go­ing for RM760,800.

The 4 Se­ries Coupé gets re­vised front and rear sec­tion, mod­i­fied front air in­lets, new bi-LED head­lights in­stead of xenon units, new apron, twin ex­haust tailpipes with larger di­am­e­ter and all-LED tail­lights. They also come with new 19-inch light al­loy rims, steer­ing re­tuned for im­proved pre­ci­sion, new am­bi­ent light­ing and lat­est touch­screen user in­ter­face with six tile icons on 8.8inch dis­play.

Mean­while, the 430i M Sport has Adap­tive M Sus­pen­sion with Driv­ing Ex­pe­ri­ence Con­trol, ex­panded BMW Con­nected ser­vices and concierge ser­vices.

The 430i’s 252hp/350Nm pow­er­plant can ac­cel­er­ate the car from 0 to 100kph in 5.8 se­conds.

The 420i’s en­gine with 184hp and 270Nm torque, does the 0-100kph sprint a tad slower in 7.5 se­conds.

The breath­tak­ing M4 Coupé now gets BMW Adap­tive Full-LED head­lights and tail­lights, re­designed and il­lu­mi­nated state­ment M em­blems for front seats.

Now edgier in its ap­pear­ance, the M4 gets the typ­i­cal M ex­te­rior mir­rors, M gills, M Dou­ble Tailpipe, car­bon roof and a pow­er­dome.

The M Sport seats fea­ture width-ad­justable side bol­sters for per­fect lat­eral sup­port where the up­right seats also aper­tures for ef­fec­tive ven­ti­la­tion on the race­track.

Aside from an M leather steer­ing wheel with M Drive but­tons, in­te­rior trim fin­ishes in car­bon fi­bre and pre­mium chrome ap­pliqué com­mu­ni­cates a sense of con­fi­dence syn­ony­mous to the sports car.

The 3.0-litre M TwinPower Turbo in-line six-cylin­der en­gine ca­pa­ble of up to 431hp and a peak torque of 550Nm and de­liv­ers a 0-100kph sprint time of 4.1 se­conds.

Other high­lights in­clude a cool­ing sys­tem where the per­for­mance tem­per­a­ture of the car is bal­anced with the main cool­ing sys­tem work­ing in com­bi­na­tion with an elec­tric wa­ter pump to en­sure a con­sis­tent tem­per­a­ture bal­ance of the en­gine, much like rac­ing cars.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the con­sis­tency of the oil sup­ply to the en­gine is main­tained by a weight-op­ti­mised mag­ne­sium oil pan which lim­its the move­ment of the oil un­der strong dy­namic lat­eral ac­cel­er­a­tion to en­sure oil is sup­plied con­tin­u­ously to all the en­gine com­po­nents.

“With the ad­vance­ments in­tro­duced in the new mod­els, we be­lieve the 4 Se­ries will con­tinue to ex­ceed ex­pec­ta­tions, while the M4 will prove that it is a mul­ti­ple cham­pi­onship win­ner,” said BMW Group Malaysia man­ag­ing di­rec­tor and CEO Han Sang Yun.
