2022 BMW M3 Competition xDrive, M4 Competition xDrive launched in Malaysia
Both models were only available in rear-wheel drive configuration before this
In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of BMW M today, BMW Malaysia has announced the arrival of the G80 BMW M3 Competition and G82 BMW M4 Competition M xDrive with prices as mentioned below:
- BMW M3 Competition Sedan with M xDrive – RM827,800
- BMW M4 Competition Coupe with M xDrive – RM848,800
Both variants are powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder petrol engine, paired with an eight-speed M Steptronic transmission with Drivelogic and the intelligent all-wheel-drive system.
This configuration offers the new variants an impressive maximum engine output of 510 PS and a peak torque of 650 Nm, achieving the century sprint in 3.5 seconds, versus the RWD variants’ 3.9 seconds.
The M xDrive all-wheel drive system is characterised by a deliberate rear-wheel bias, where power is only channeled to the rear during normal driving – but when the vehicle reaches its traction limits, the system sends power to the front wheels as well.
The all-wheel drive system is complemented by the Active M Differential at the rear axle that splits the engine’s power between the two rear wheels ensures noticeably enhanced traction, agility, and directional stability on roads with differing levels of grip.
The M xDrive also allows the driver to tailor the all-wheel-drive system’s characteristics and performance to the driving situation and their individual preferences via three different driving modes: 4WD, 4WD Sport and 2WD mode.
The athletic design is formed by frameless, all-black M kidney grilles with narrow headlights and air inlet in a trapezoidal shape complemented with M forged light-alloy wheels equip the two variants.
As part of BMW’s intelligent lightweight construction, the roof of both vehicles is made from carbon-fibre-reinforced plastic (CFRP). This helps to lower the vehicles’ centre of gravity, enhancing their agility.
Crafted with structured surfaces and an ergonomically impeccable cockpit design the cabin ensures the driver’s focus remains one hundred percent in the drive.
The M Drive Professional which has been developed specifically for track driving helps the driver to make consistent progress in their pursuit for the perfect lap by tracking and recording a myriad of performance data.
Customisation and optional equipment including exterior colours, interior upholstery, interior trim, driving assistance and M Performance Parts amongst others, can be added at special rates later via the online configurator for the new models.
Both new models variants are now available for pre-booking on the BMW Shop Online platform at a fee of RM 5,000.
Owners of the new BMW M model variants will also receive the complete BMW Group Malaysia Premium Ownership experience which includes:
• BMW 5-Year Unlimited Mileage Warranty with Free Scheduled Service Programme
• BMW Roadside Assistance and Accident Hotline
• The BMW Group Loyalty+ Mobile App - BMW Privileges Card
