BMW 320i makes welcome return to the 3 Series line-up in Malaysia


BMW Malaysia has announced the availability of new variant to G20-generation 3 Series range, the 320i Sport. The 320i variant was previously the best-selling variant during F30 era, before making way for the 330e plug-in hybrid.

The new 320i Sport is priced at a competitive RM243,800 – well within the ballpark of what the F30 320i used to command — a testament to the local assembly efforts of BMW Malaysia. Here are the key specs of the 320i Sport:

  • 184 hp and 300 Nm 2.0-litre Twin-power turbo four-cylinder
  • 8-speed Sport automatic with steering shift paddles
  • Zero to 100km/h in 7.1 seconds, top speed of 235 km/h
  • 18-inch double-spoke 790 M dual-tone alloy wheels (225/45 R18)
  • Adaptive LED headlights and LED fog lamps (housed in NACA ducts)
  • Aluminium ‘Mesh effect’ interior trim with Pearl Chrome highlight
  • Vernasca leather upholstery
  • Sport seats and steering wheel
  • Analogue driving instruments with 5.7-inch digital display (BMW Live Cockpit Plus)
  • 8.8-inch central iDrive display with navigation (running on Operating System 6)
  • 3-zone automatic climate control
  • 6-speaker audio system
  • BMW ConnectedDrive with Intelligent Emergency Call, Teleservices and Digital Key
  • Parking Assistant with Reversing Assist and reversing camera
320i Sport gets analogue dials unlike 330i, may be better appreciated by traditionalists.

Visually, it’s easy to distinguish the 320i Sport from the 330i M Sport as they both have different body kits; the front fog lamp housing of the 320i features NACA-inspired air intakes, along with the horizontal T motif at the corners of the rear bumper.

There is a total of five body colours to choose from; Alpine White, Black Sapphire, Mineral Grey, Mediterranean Blue and Sunset Orange. Like all new BMW models, the 320i Sport comes with 5-year unlimited warranty, and 5-year or 100,000 scheduled maintenance (BMW Service Inclusive Basic package).

If you don’t have RM 250K cash lying around in a duffle bag, you can own the new BMW 320i Sport via BMW Group Financial Services Malaysia’s Dynamic financial programme with a monthly instalment plan starting from RM2,788 based on estimates of an 80% loan over a five-year tenure.
