New BMW 5-Series (G30) Launched in Malaysia, 530i M Sport, RM399K
BMW Group Malaysia today introduced the All-New BMW 5 Series. Now in its seventh generation, the Most Progressive Sports-Business Sedan promises Sheer Driving Pleasure and will set a new benchmark in the automotive premium segment in the country.
Even when standing still, the All-New BMW 530i M Sport creates a powerful impression. In the seventh generation of the sportiest business sedan, the kidney grille and headlights are directly linked for the first time ever.
Here, the BMW Adaptive full-LED headlights with LED daytime running lights have been enhanced with roundabout light and high beam with a range of 500 meters.
Many aerodynamic refinements and airflow-optimizing elements, including the visible air vent control in the kidney grille, air inlets and Air Curtains in the front apron, as well as Air Breathers in the front wings, all contribute to the best drag coefficient of any sedan (up to cd=0.22). The All-New BMW 5 Series has the best-in-class dimensions of 4,936 mm (+29mm) in length, 1,868 mm (+8mm) in width, and 1,479 mm (+2mm) in height.
With the M Sport package, the All-New BMW 530i M Sport puts passion for dynamism at the forefront. 19-inch M light-alloy wheels in double spoke style with mixed tyres, M Sport brake with blue painted callipers with ‘M’ designation, as well as M Aerodynamics components in the body colour, front and rear aprons and sill covers at the side make for the athletic appearance of the All-New BMW 5 Series.
Internally, the All-New BMW 5 Series is fitted with sports seats for the driver and front passenger, illuminated M door sill finishers, new M specific pedals, and M leather steering wheel.
Its engine is based off the newly developed, modular BMW EfficientDynamics family of power units. BMW Twin Power Turbo Technology which comes with a Twin Scroll turbocharger, High Precision Direct Injection, VALVETRONIC fully variable valve control and a Double-VANOS variable camshaft timing works in tandem to deliver outstanding performance combined with exceptional efficiency.
With the latest-generation inline 4-cylinder 2-litre petrol engine mated with an equally optimised eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmission, the All-New BMW 530i M Sport generates a maximum output of 252 hp, torque of 350 Nm and accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in just 6.2 seconds at a top speed of 250 km/h. The average fuel consumption of the All-New BMW 530i M Sport stands at 5.8 litres per 100 km with C02 emissions of 132 grams per kilometre.
Meanwhile, the Driving Experience Control system now provides access to a fourth mode – ADAPTIVE – in addition to the COMFORT, SPORT and ECO PRO driving modes. The ADAPTIVE mode works alongside Dynamic Damper Control and Navigation System Professional wherein the steering, DDC and Steptronic systems automatically adapts to the current driving style and route ahead.
Equipped with the latest-generation iDrive system, it displays navigation and entertainment features, including vehicle functions on a high-resolution 10.25-inch touch screen. The system can be operated using the iDrive controller, by voice command or gestures, or by touching the display controls directly, as the driver wishes. The large, tile-style panels can be arranged as desired to show the content of the underlying menus in constantly updated form.
Further maximising the levels of on-board comfort are the automatic air conditioning with 4-zone control and electrically adjustable sport seats with Memory function for the driver as well as heat and sun protection glazing.
The BMW Display Key with LCD colour display and touch control panel for example, shows various information about the vehicle’s status and allows selected functions to be controlled via the integrated touch display.
The all-new BMW 5 Series is available in Black Sapphire, Sophisto Grey Brilliant Effect, Alpine White and Mediterranean Blue. This is matched with interior upholstery in Leather Dakota Black with contrast Blue stitching or Leather Dakota Cognac with contrast stitching (only for the Alpine White, Sophisto Grey Brilliant Effect, and Black Sapphire).
The new BMW 530i M Sport will be available at all authorised BMW dealerships across the country from this weekend onwards and will also be displayed at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur Main Entrance from 31st March 2017 to 2nd April 2017 where visitors can participate in interactive activities and stand a chance to win an exclusive experience with BMW.
