BMW Group Malaysia introduces the All New BMW 316i.
BMW Group Malaysia has introduced the all new BMW 316i. The new BMW 316i features the latest innovations and technologies that are made available by BMW and is indistinguishable from its imported counterparts, resulting from the on-going transfer of advanced BMW assembly line technology, practices and standards to the country.

Power transfer is additionally made effective via BMW’s award winning 8-speed automatic transmission which provides superior shift dynamics as well as barely perceptible gear shifts.
The all new BMW 316i also continues to demonstrate BMW’s exemplary achievements in BMW EfficientDynamics with an average EU test cycle fuel consumption level of 5.9 litres to every 100km travelled. Driving Experience Control is also a standard feature in the new BMW 316i with BMW’s COMFORT, SPORT and ECO PRO modes all available at the touch of a button.
